This month, Blue Ridge Orthodontics, along with founder Dr. T. Luke Roberts, reaches a new milestone.
Orthodontics is defined as a specialty field of dentistry, and with good reason: Treating the poor or abnormal alignment of the teeth can be very complex for many patients, and the solutions employed over the years have steadily evolved as technology has advanced.
One such contemporary specialized strategy: Invisalign, which is a series of clear aligners called trays that are outwardly difficult to detect—with no metal wires or brackets like traditional braces, they are also removable for ease of brushing and flossing—and that gradually move the wearer’s teeth into place with each new tray, typically worn for about two weeks before switching out. And 3D computer imaging scans are used in place of having impressions taken to yield more exact images for the aligners.
