Advanced Orthodontic Technology in Frederick & Urbana, MD

At The Village Orthodontist, we’re proud to use the most advanced orthodontic technologies and treatment methods to help each patient we serve obtain the healthy and attractive smile they deserve. We’re proud to be the first orthodontic practice in all of Frederick County to incorporate SureSmile® technology and i-Cat® 3D digital x-rays. Whether you’re looking for a children’s orthodontist in Frederick MD to begin early treatment, or are interested in improving the appearance and health of your own smile, you can rest assured that we can provide you with the high quality, individualized orthodontic care your family needs and deserves.

Dr. Moles and his team are dedicated to providing our patients with state-of-the-art orthodontic appliances, techniques and technologies. Treatment today is quicker, more precise, more efficient and more convenient than ever before. Below you’ll find an overview of the technologies we use here at The Village Orthodontist to help our patients achieve their best smiles!

iTero Digital Impression System

The digital iTero Scanner we use at our office replaces the uncomfortable, messy and sometimes inaccurate traditional putty impressions that often cause gagging. Using this digital, handheld scanner, we can capture highly detailed 3-D images or impressions of your teeth and bite while you sit back and relax. We use the captured images to help plan your treatment and to create customized bracket trays which we use to place brackets on your teeth, all at one time, for better efficiency and overall effectiveness. 

Check out our iTero Scanner page for more information.

SureSmile®

SureSmile® combines Dr. Mole’s expertise with the power of 3D visualization and the precision of advanced robotics. With SureSmile, the creation, structuring, placement and analysis of your braces are worked out completely before the braces are placed on your teeth. With SureSmile, we begin by capturing detailed 3-D images of the teeth which Dr. Moles uses to plan the precise movement of the teeth. The SureSmile software calculates the wire bends needed to efficiently and directly move the teeth into their proper places, based on the your individual treatment plan. This means you spend less time wearing braces, have fewer orthodontic appointments to keep and can enjoy more comfortable treatment.

The Village Orthodontist's SureSmile page has more information about the technology.

iCat® Imaging

Dr. Moles uses the revolutionary iCat Cone Beam 3-D Imaging System to provide patients with a comprehensive and detailed treatment plan. Once the extremely detailed scans of teeth and bite have been captured, Dr. Moles uses the scans to analyze and plan your treatment and to show you what problems have been detected so you can make informed decisions about your course of treatment. In just a few seconds, this CT technology can provide a wide range of 3-D data to help Dr. Moles make a very effective and precise diagnosis.

We use iCat Imaging in our Frederick, MD office to help give patients the most efficient and effective treatment possible.

Wilckodontics

If the idea of spending many months wearing appliances has stopped you from seeking orthodontic care, Wilckodontics may be a supplemental orthodontic treatment option for you. Wilckodontics, which is also known as Accelerated Osteogenic Orthodontics or AAO, can be used in conjunction with any fixed orthodontic appliance treatment. Instead of adapting the manner in which forces are applied to the teeth as other treatments do, AOO focuses on manipulating the underlying bone that supports the teeth. This supplemental treatment option moves teeth up to four times faster than braces alone, to help patients achieve their perfect smiles in a shorter period of time.

SPEED Brackets

The SPEED system offers a quicker and more comfortable treatment option for children and teens wearing braces. Using a special spring clip in the brackets, Dr. Moles applies light and continuous pressure to the teeth, decreasing the amount of time you'll need to visit the office and speeding up treatment times. One of the biggest advantages of SPEED brackets is also that they're much easier to keep clean than traditional brackets, which helps ensure dental problems such as tooth decay don't derail your orthodontic treatment.

PROPEL

Instead of solely relying on braces, aligners and other orthodontic appliances to apply pressure to make teeth move, we utilize the revolutionary PROPEL system to stimulate jaw bone growth. By incorporating the patient’s own biology, we can encourage the bone around the teeth to move, which causes faster tooth movement.

Using a sterile, disposable, one-time-use PROPEL device, we will create a small, micro-pierce into the jaw bone. The device has an adjustable depth dial, so we can control how deep the surgical steel tip penetrates. It’s also ergonomically designed, so we have better control, resulting in a virtually painless procedure. This quick, 5-minute process will help speed up your orthodontic treatment, making it more efficient and effective!
