Advanced Technology

At Nor Cal Orthodontics, we strongly advocate that the proficiency of an orthodontic practice is intricately tied to the quality of its tools. We’ve bid farewell to the era of cumbersome molds, uncomfortable dental appliances, and protracted x-ray sessions. Presently, we have the capability to create molds, conduct x-rays, and recommend treatments that significantly alleviate the burden on our patients. Thanks to cutting-edge technology, we can seamlessly arrange same-day appointments, ensuring our patients experience swift and efficient chair-side visits.

Adulting with Braces

iTero® Element™

At Nor Cal Orthodontics, we love showcasing our advanced dental impression technology, the iTero® Element™. With this tool, we’ve done away with the outdated and messy “goopy” approach to dental impressions. The traditional method not only caused discomfort for the patient but also frequently led to the need for additional appointments due to its inherent inaccuracies. We understand that no patient desires such an experience, and we firmly believe that you shouldn’t have to either. In our commitment to modernizing our practice, discarding the “goopy” impression method was among the initial steps we took in enhancing dental techniques.

Radiance Plus® Braces offer a myriad of benefits that set them apart from other cosmetic bracket options. Their superior strength and enhanced aesthetics, Radiance Plus excels in delivering exceptional results. With features like Visual Placement Aids (VPAs) for precise bonding and a thicker tie wing radius, these braces ensure optimal performance. Crafted from a single crystal of pure sapphire, Radiance Plus brackets are renowned for their unparalleled clarity, being nearly invisible on the teeth.
