Orthodontic Technology

We use the best orthodontic technology in Charleston SC

From beginning to end, your orthodontic treatment at Charleston Orthodontic Specialists will include the most recent technology available to give you the best experience.

Convenient Virtual Consults

You can take advantage of our technology before you even become a patient with a virtual consultation. This option is perfect for people who are curious about braces or Invisalign aligners, but aren’t ready to schedule an in-office visit or are unable to come into the office during our regular office hours.

A virtual consult begins with you clicking the “Free Virtual Consult” button at the bottom of the screen. You’ll submit a few selfies of your smile and we will send you information about potential treatment options. You can also schedule a video call with one of our orthodontists to answer any questions you may have.

Our virtual consults are fast, convenient, and free, and there is no obligation to start treatment.

iTero Scanner Replaces Messy Impressions

One of the things patients dread most about going to the orthodontist is getting impressions made of their teeth. The gooey material sliding down your throat combined with the tray cutting into your gums makes for an unpleasant experience.

We have replaced impressions with digital images created by our iTero scanner. A special wand is used to capture images of your teeth in a matter of minutes. Then these images are used to design your treatment plan. No more waiting for molds to set, gagging, or lingering aftertastes.

Secure Online Patient Portal

During your treatment, you will have access to an online patient portal. You can make payments securely, check upcoming appointments, and receive cool prizes from our patient rewards club.

3D Printing Eliminates Wait for Retainers

Once you’ve finished your treatment with braces or Invisalign, you will need to wear a retainer to keep your smile looking its best. Most orthodontists require you to come back and pick up your retainer after your last appointment, but not Charleston Orthodontic Specialists.

At your next-to-last visit, we’ll scan your teeth. Using these images, we’ll create your retainers on our 3D printer and have them ready for you at your last appointment. You can even take home the models of your teeth if you’d like!
