Our Services
Types of Orthodontics
We offer a variety of orthodontic treatment options - from Invisalign (transparent removable aligners that gradually move the teeth into place), to ceramic braces that are barely visible, to metal braces that provide you with the option for adding colored elastics. For children, often we must consider orthopedic treatment options to help direct the growth of the jaws to an ideal position. Each patient is unique, so not all options will work for everyone. Dr. Burn will help you determine the best option(s) in your case.

What kind of technology is used in the practice?
• Dr. Burn uses a precision bracket placement system, which allows your braces to be applied using customized "indirect bonding trays." These are prepared ahead of time by Dr. Burn and her lab technician specifically for each case. The braces are applied in prescription segments, which makes the process faster and more comfortable than was possible in the past. This also results in reduced treatment time in most cases, as the bracket placement is more accurate, so you will require fewer wire adjustments. Adults who experienced braces in the past are always amazed at how much better orthodontics has become!

• We use light-force nickel titanium "memory wires," which are proven to move the teeth more efficiently and with the lighter pressure than was possible in the past.

• We offer self-ligating braces, which are thought to provide less friction and potentially faster tooth movement.

• Our office provides digital radiography, which produces a fraction of the exposure of traditional x-rays. It also eliminates the need for toxic chemicals that were used to develop these films in the past.

• Dr. Burn is a certified provider for all Invisalign®products, which is a prescription removable aligner system made from virtual computer modeling.

WE ARE A DIGITAL IMPRESSION PRACTICE: PROUD OWNERS OF AN ITERO® ELEMENT™ INTRAORAL SCANNER

We'll Make a Great First Impression
The iTero Element Scanner is a state-of-the-art digital scanning system that eliminates the need for unpleasant traditional alginate impressions- no more messy putty in your mouth! With our iTero Element Scanner, we can digitally capture a detailed, 3D model of your teeth and gums. Not only is an iTero Element digital impression far more comfortable than the old putty-based impressions, but it’s faster and provides images that are more precise.
Say "goodbye" to the goop-filled impression trays!
•  No goop or gag to worry about
•  Fast, accurate 3D scan for superior diagnostics
•  Ideal for all types of treatment, including braces, Invisalign® clear aligners and retainers
•  See a simulation of your potential post-treatment smile with the Invisalign Outcome Simulator (IOSim)

During the scanning process, Dr. Burn and her staff will use the iTero Element Scanner’s wand to capture images of your teeth and gum tissue. You can breathe or swallow as you normally would. You can even pause during the process if you need to sneeze or just want to ask a question.

The iTero Element scanner will give us a 3D model of your mouth that we can use with all orthodontic services, including the Invisalign Outcome Simulator, to show you what your new smile might look like.

Invisalign®
Invisalign® is a type of orthodontic appliance, and can be an alternative to traditional braces in many cases. A custom designed series of virtually invisible "aligners" are worn to straighten the teeth. The aligners are changed at a specific schedule until your teeth are straight.

The biggest advantage of this type of treatment is that is nearly undetectable to anyone who does not know you are undergoing orthodontic treatment. The aligners are completely removable, so there are no restrictions on what you can eat, and it is easier to maintain excellent oral hygiene than with traditional braces.

Dr. Burn is an experienced Invisalign® and Invisalign Teen® provider - so if you are interested in exploring this kind of treatment for yourself or your teen, ask about it at you complimentary consultation.
