At Cater Galante Orthodontics we are passionate about three things: orthodontics, technology and our patients. That's why we work to combine all three to create an enjoyable and successful orthodontic treatment journey for each of our patients.
Here are some of the different type of orthodontic technology we use for the benefit of our patients.
Comprehensive x-ray diagnosis
Our in-house x-ray lab provides us with the finest x-ray equipment with our new Panorex CMT machine. With a computerized tomographic x-ray unit, we have unequaled x-ray technique for monitoring the jaw position within the jaw joint (TMJ). Our radiography is all-digital, providing the ability to adjust and enhance x-rays with the touch of a finger, eliminating retakes. With the comprehensive diagnosis these x-rays provide, Dr Cater and Dr Galante can best determine the specific needs of each patient.
No more films, no more developing, no more waiting! Images in an instant!
Phosphorous plates are used when the x-ray is taken, the image is loaded into the computer and then the plate is cleared with light exposure and ready to use again. The result — a very detailed film that can be magnified, lightened or darkened, made 3D and much more, all with the touch of the finger. In addition the digital x-ray provides a 90% reduction in radiation than the traditional dental x-ray film used in most offices. Dr Cater and Dr Galante use all images to diagnose treatment at your very first appointment.
Our database is fully digitized, computerized and completely networked throughout all three of our offices. This allows us access to all appointments, account information, x-rays and photos for all patients from any one of our offices. This gives patients the convenience of switching between all three offices if the need occurs.
We continually maintain a modern up-to-date office. We are frequently adding new advances in our diagnostic and treatment delivery system, as well as our computer and Internet technology.
