Why Vestal Orthodontist, Dr. Muench & Muench Orthodontics?
5-Star Rated Vestal, NY, Orthodontics Office & Orthodontist
i-CAT™ Cone Beam 3D Dental Imaging System
A rapidly emerging standard of care in orthodontics is the use of 3D imaging. The only orthodontist throughout the entire Southern Tier to use this system, Dr. Muench is able to gather highly valuable 3D diagnostic information to better plan and deliver your orthodontic care.
Dr. Muench utilizes 3D imaging to provide enhanced diagnosis and treatment planning. Using 3D software tools, he can easily select desired slices for immediate viewing. 3D imaging delivers quicker and easier image acquisition than conventional x-ray machines, and a typical scan takes less than 5 seconds to create.
Patients benefit from less radiation as well as a more comfortable open environment. Aside from the physical comfort of the i-Cat™ system, the doctor can share a visual diagnosis with patients, making them more comfortable with their treatment plan and allowing active participation in their care. The speed of the scan and the immediate results allows the Dr. Muench to better communicate with you.
Benefits of Using the i-CAT™ Compared to Traditional X-ray Systems:
- Open environment ensures greater patient comfort
- Fast image acquisition
- Less radiation than typical traditional dental x-rays
- More accurate diagnosis and treatment planning
- Can reduce the length and cost of treatment
- Environmentally friendly – digital images mean no toxic chemicals into the environment
Images are ready for use in less than 3 minutes and can be emailed, placed on a CD, or printed in full color for use by your family dentist or specialists. For patients requiring advanced restorative care such as implants, i-Cat™ images can be used by third-party implant software (i.e. Simplant, Nobel Guide, Dolphin, etc.) for pre-surgical evaluation and computer-guided implant surgery. Your implant doctor will receive a viewable animation to help him measure and analyze your mouth from every aspect. The data can also be used to fabricate implant surgical guides.
Advanced Technology For Orthodontic Care & Treatment
At Muench Orthodontics, our relentless pursuit of providing the ultimate orthodontic experience means we are constantly upgrading to the latest and best technology which allows us to deliver more accurate, faster, and ultimately better orthodontic treatment. With 3D digital X-rays, Damon® Braces, Insignia™, and Lythos™ digital impressions, we will make your orthodontic treatment easier and more comfortable than you thought possible.
Lythos™ is the worlds most sophisticated digital camera for taking pictures inside the mouth. The introduction of Lythos™ scanning technology into our practice was a huge step that has eliminated the need for uncomfortable, messy, and gaggy impressions from our practice forever. Using the Lythos™ scanner, a high resolution image of your teeth and bite is created in minutes, and without he need for uncomfortable metal impression trays loaded with gunk. The small tip allows easy access and maximizes your comfort.
Insignia Advanced Smile Design™
At Muench Orthodontics, our patients benefit from the most advanced technology available in orthodontics today – Insignia™. After your Lythos™ digital impression is made, it can be viewed on a computer screen. Using advanced software, Dr. Muench moves your teeth, creating your new smile and bite before treatment even begins. As unique as snowflakes, computers and robots manufacture 100% custom braces and wires that fit only your teeth and are specific to your individual treatment needs and goals. The precision achieved with Insignia results in an average reduction in treatment time of 37% to 40% when compared with traditional convention braces. During your Muench Smile Assessment we will discuss all of your options and explain how we can accelerate your treatment time.
Pediatric dentists have 2-3 years of additional specialized dental training for your child’s comfort and best treatment. They offer everything a normal dentist does: X-rays, cleanings, sealants, dental fillings if necessary – but on a child’s level. Having a doctor who is dual-certified in Pediatric Dentistry can only help your child’s experience from beginning to end.
