Digital Orthodontics

June 29th, 2021

Wax diagnostic set ups in orthodontics are now replaced with scans, 3D printing and digital orthodontic software. Dr. Ekim prefers the itero and aligntech software to manage orthodontic prediction, planning and communication with colleagues and patients. An easy 3-5 minute scan has now replaced the impression tray of alginate, plaster pouring, model trimming and sectioning teeth for a wax set up. Instead, Dr. Ekim can digitally plan orthodontic treatment options and demonstrate them to patients, their dental providers at in-person consults or live virtual meetings with shared screens!

Virtual Visit Options

May 12th, 2021

A new and useful addition to our appointment menu is our virtual visit! Now new patients seeking out answers to their questions on getting started can benefit from visiting with a clinical expert prior to physically coming in! We have found it also useful for our Invisalign patients, progress consults, and appliance checks. We can even be between locations and with multiple people coming in from work, school or their cars. Our families and colleagues have many options for communication at Ekim Orthodontics.
