Harmony braces

SureSmile, Invisalign, Incognito

 

At Riolo Orthodontics we use our custom orthodontic appliance technology to allows you to view your final orthodontic treatment results before you begin your treatment. We build in your individual treatment result into your custom orthodontic appliance. We do this by digitally scanning your teeth and producing a digital model of your “crooked” teeth (see the digital models below). Dr Riolo then performs “digital orthodontics” to simulate your treatment, resulting in a finished orthodontic model of your actual finished result.Read more on SureSmile, Invisalign, Incognito…
