3D X-Rays are a revolutionary technology used in orthodontic offices that is currently available in only 12% of dental practices around the country! They provide an incredibly detailed view of the patient’s jaw, teeth, and facial structures. The 3D X-Ray captures high-quality digital images of the patient’s facial and dental anatomy in a single scan, eliminating the need for multiple X-rays. This technology allows Dr. Garcia and Dr. Wilka Garcia to diagnose problems and accurately plan treatment.
3D Modeling With iTero
iTero 3D modeling is a groundbreaking technology orthodontic offices use to create detailed and accurate digital models of the patient’s mouth for diagnosis and treatment planning. This advanced software captures high-quality digital images of the patient’s facial and dental anatomy, providing an incredibly detailed view of the patient’s jaw, teeth, and related structures. Furthermore, it is incredibly helpful in creating individualized treatment plans that are tailored to each patient’s unique situation. With iTero 3D modeling, you can rest assured that our orthodontists, Dr. Garcia and Dr. Wilka Garcia, will have the most detailed and accurate picture of your teeth available to create an individualized treatment plan.
Steam Autoclave Sterilization
Steam autoclave sterilization is widely considered the industry-leading means of sanitization, far surpassing dry heat in its ability to clean areas and items thoroughly. The steam method combines high temperatures with water droplets, pressuring this environment to pressures as high as 120 psi, allowing it to penetrate even the most difficult or heavily oiled areas. Additionally, this method is fast, efficient, and safe for all materials used in orthodontics, including metal, ceramic, and plastic. By using this sterilization method, our team can be assured that all tools and instruments are completely clean and free of any potential contaminants.
HEPA Air Purification & Filtration
With our new 5,000 square-foot office space, we knew how important it was to incorporate elements that ensured the health and safety of both our team and patients. In our constant effort to improve, we prioritized air quality. Maintaining clean air was non-negotiable as it is part of our promise to deliver the very best.
IQAir extraoral suction air purification systems provide a line of defense against harmful airborne pathogens and infectious material that can threaten the health and safety of patients and our team. When combined with intraoral suction, IQAir extraoral suction air purifiers right at the patient source can reduce aerosol levels, bacterial colonies, and airborne viral particles from dental procedures to almost zero. At Garcia Orthodontics, we have five separate units around the office that rotate the air of the entire office for maximum filtration.
Check out our featured case study with IQAir to learn more about how we use this advanced air filtration system and the ways both our patients and team have benefited.
