Dr. Silverman uses advanced braces technology to give patients the best results possible.

OrthoCAD iQ

OrthoCAD iQ is a computer guided technology that assists Dr. Silverman with optimal placement of braces.  Using this technology we are able to achieve precision that manual placement simply cannot match! This accuracy allows for faster progression, shorter treatment time and less time spent wearing braces!

The advanced computerized guidance technology allows us to place brackets quickly and precisely so you can get your braces on in only 15 minutes! AND with fewer required adjustments, you will have fewer follow-up appointments with our office which means less disruption in your everyday life.

Benefits of OrthoCAD iQ include:

  • Faster treatment time
  • Initial bonding in only 15 minutes
  • Fewer appointments required

SmartClip bracket

The SmartClip bracket developed by 3M Unitek uses self-ligating braces technology to achieve exceptional results. They are computer designed to make your treatment more comfortable, save time and give you the result you want – a beautiful new smile.

Ordinary braces use “elastic bands” to secure the archwire in place (this is called ligation). The bands can become stained or stretched and must be changed out frequently. SmartClip braces are different. The self-ligating technology removes the need for “elastic bands” and instead uses small metal clips to hold the archwire in place.

Benefits of SmartClip include:

  • Faster treatment time
  • More comfortable
  • Less office visits
  • Easier to keep braces clean
