Happy Wednesday everyone!  Fall has officially arrived and we’re SO excited! Bring out Pumpkin Spice EVERYTHING.



Fall is an important time to remember to use up those insurance benefits.  One way to do this is to finally get the straight teeth you’ve always wanted!!  On to our topic this week — clear braces. We know you’re going to roll your eyes and be like, “Ewww, that requires those messy impressions.”  (Trust us, we know that is a huge negative to most people).

Oh but you wait darlings — we have a solution!!  Our Cerec Ortho scanning system! This is an alternative to doing impressions for all our orthodontic and lab-fabricated appliance cases.  We are able to scan your entire mouth into the system, and electronically send it directly to our lab. It is a time-saving technique that we are excited to implement into our daily routine here at Sugar Fix Dental Loft. Not to mention, no more goopy, messy, gaggy impressions!  Yay! So be on the lookout for this technology the next time you are in our office.




How do teeth move in Invisalign?

Invisalign designs a series of aligners that gradually move the teeth,  similar to how regular braces are tightened every few weeks (except they are clear and painless)!  Each aligner gets you closer and closer to perfectly straight teeth.

Are you interested in straightening even faster?  Wouldn’t you know, we have the solution for you!!!  Let us introduce you to PROPEL!!  Propel is a technique used by Dr. Dickinson to speed up treatment exponentially to where you wear each aligner for only 3 days!  This is great for our patients who are looking to get in and out of treatment.  Usually, a full case is done in 1-2 months!Fall/SugarFixDentalLoft

How do they stay straight after?

It’s easy!  After treatment, we have Invisalign make you a clear tray to sleep with at night.  This will maintain the position of the teeth and keep them straight!  This is crucial to make sure they do not reverse and go back to being out of alignment.  If you do not think that you would be compliant with this, we would recommend that a lingual bar is placed permanently to ensure the teeth do not shift.
