We are very proud of our in-house state-of-the-art orthodontic laboratory. Most orthodontic practices across the country do not have an in-house lab and have to send their work out.
Appliances that are used to treat our patients are made in-house, allowing turn-around time to be extremely fast and oftentimes the same day. Appliances that are used in our practice are for : 1) expansion to correct patients with narrow arches, 2) to eliminate finger, thumbs and tongue thrust habits. 3) all varieties of retainers and mouthguards.
The care and comfort of our patients is always a priority for us. There are many other benefits to having an on-site laboratory. One great benefit is having the retainers ready the same day braces are removed. Another benefit is being able to make any necessary repairs to appliances while the patient has a short wait. These benefits save the patient time (and from coming back ). We always try to be considerate of our patients’ time as we know that everyone’s time is quite valuable.
