At Dr. W. Gray Grieve Orthodontics, we utilize the latest orthodontic treatment methods, procedures, and technology. Orthodontic advancements have given patients a straight smile in less time than traditional treatment with metal braces.
iTero Digital Impressions
Putty impressions are a thing of the past with the iTero Digital system. For patients who are candidates for Invisalign aligners, Dr. Grieve uses an iOC to seamlessly capture a model of your teeth, mouth, and gums in minutes. It’s a non-evasive procedure, and we know you will not miss the goopy, unpleasant aftertaste of the traditional putty impressions. Learn more about iTero digital scanning here.
Our office is pleased to offer our patients passive self-ligating Damon System braces. Damon braces use a slide mechanism to hold the archwire, reducing the amount of pressure exerted on the teeth and allowing the teeth to move more freely, quickly, and comfortably. Thanks to these innovative new braces, achieving your perfect smile can be faster and easier than you ever thought possible! Learn more about this revolutionary treatment technique here.
iCat 3D Imaging
Rather than traditional X-Rays and Panorama Imaging, our orthodontists are proud to offer you the most current, state-of-the-art 3D imaging equipment available in the market today. High-resolution images provide complete 3D views for a more thorough analysis of bone structure and tooth orientation while allowing our orthodontists to control the dose and carefully observe radiation protocols. The result – greater flexibility and accuracy in diagnosing your orthodontic issues and planning your treatment! View the video below to learn more.
FormLabs 3D Printing
3D printed models are replacing plaster models and that same technology is being used to print plastic splints and retainers. Our lab utilizes FormLabs 3D Printing technology, so patients do not have to wait long between getting their braces removed and receiving their customized retainer. Dr. Grieve and his team complete all their appliance printing in-house, saving time, money, and ensuring your appliances and accurately designed to fit your unique orthodontic case.
