Here at Breeze Orthodontics, Torrance's favorite board certified orthodontists, we pride ourselves in providing the best outcomes possible for our patients. To do this, we take the time study each case and plan them well. At our office, we avoid extractions as much as possible without compromising treatment. One of the tools we use to do this is the Bolton Analysis. Bolton analysis gives orthodontists an objective way of evaluating a possible extraction cases.
We here at Breeze Orthodontics (formerly Eckhart Orthodontics), Torrance's leading Invisalign experts, have been using 3D scanners to take digital impressions for our Invisalign cases since Itero release their first scanner back in 2007. Back then, scanners were very slow compared to conventional impressions, but Dr. Eckhart still saw the advantages of 3D scanning. 10 years later, we're upgrading our 3D scanning and 3D orthodontics capabilities, we like to take a look back on why we choose 3D scanning over conventional impressions.
