Why Choose Muench Orthodontics?
5-Star Rated Vestal, NY, Orthodontic 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, Dr. Muench 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, Dr. Muench 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 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 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/her 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, and iTero™ digital impressions, we will make your orthodontic treatment easier and more comfortable than you thought possible.
iTero™ is the worlds most sophisticated digital camera for taking pictures inside the mouth. The introduction of iTero™ 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 iTero™ scanner, a high resolution image of your teeth and bite is created in minutes, and without the need for uncomfortable metal impression trays loaded with gunk. The small tip allows easy access and maximizes your comfort.
Improved Chairside Consults with iTero
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, and dental fillings if necessary – but on a child’s level. Having a doctor who is a dual-specialist in Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics can only help your child’s experience from beginning to end.

Vestal Orthodontist Bringing Smiles To Binghamton Youth
By Matt Paddock VESTAL, N.Y. – Muench Orthodontics of Vestal has helped bring smiles to the Binghamton Youth through the nonproﬁt “Smiles Change Lives”. Over the past three Dr. David Muench has donated over $300,000 in braces for kids. To qualify for the program, a child must be between the ages of 7-21, maintain good oral hygiene, not already be wearing braces, and have a moderate or severe need for braces along with meeting ﬁnancial guidelines. Muench says, ” Its been a fantastic experience for myself and my staﬀ we feel good we’ve been able to make a positive impact on a child”. The service that they provide is all inclusive meaning the children get a full set of braces, complete treatment, retainers and follow up treatments. “It’s kind of hard to describe but obviously its a great feeling and the reactions on the part of the patients, children, and parents can be sometimes overwhelming… its usually a very happy day when they come in and get their braces oﬀ and there’s a lot of smiling sometimes there’s some tears… it can sometimes get emotional but in a good way and so it’s a happy thing its a good thing and we’re just very honored to be able to do this for the community” said Muench.
