At Spannhake Orthodontics, we believe in innovation. Technology has played an amazing role in orthodontics allowing us to diagnose and treat our patients more precisely. Innovations in the orthodontic appliances that we use can achieve the intended results faster, with less inconvenience and less discomfort.
Dr. Spannhake is an Invisalign-trained orthodontist and the Invisalign system is the most advanced clear aligner system in the world. Backed by two decades of innovation, the Invisalign system has helped bring smiles to over 9.6 million people including over 2.4 million teens. Invisalign treatment options address simple to complex cases and is used to treat a wide range of clinical situations in children, teens, and adults.
Part of the technology at Spannhake Orthodontics is the Element iTero scanner, which eliminates the need for gooey and gaggy traditional impressions. This scanner allows us to create a computerized 3D image of your teeth so that we can plan your tooth movements throughout your entire treatment timeline. These digital images also give you the ability to see your teeth instantly in 3D, giving Dr. Spannhake the ability to precisely identify problems and create an effective treatment plan.
3D Cone Beam X-Ray
Spannhake Orthodontics is one of the few orthodontic practices in the area to offer the advanced Cone Beam X-ray technology. This digital imaging device uses 3D Cone Beam technology to formulate high-resolution x-ray images which digitize your teeth in one comprehensive scan. Our digital x-rays produce 75% less radiation than the traditional x-rays and allow Dr. Spannhake to get a more detailed look at the structures of the mouth.
