We're High-Tech at Morristown Orthodontics

Morristown Orthodontics understands that crafting a great smile takes time, but with today’s technology we can deliver results faster to our patients by using cutting edge tools such as our 3D oral scanners and 3D printers. Not only do these new technology tools help us get your results faster, but they also make treatment easier on you as a patient.

It’s time to say goodbye to those messy molds associated with beginning orthodontic treatment, and say hello to our 3D printers and oral scanners. Our 3D printing and scanning technology allow us to provide a more comfortable procedure while treating patients for orthodontics.  We can capture an extremely accurate digital impression of teeth within minutes with the scanners, and print orthodontic appliance parts as we need them. 

Another awesome fact about the 3D technology is we can use them with all Invisalign related services.

We offer a complimentary exam to determine what treatment plan is best for your clinical needs and lifestyle. Contact our Morris County or Essex County orthodontic office to schedule your consultation today.

What is In-Ovation?

In-Ovation system braces are different! With a special free-sliding technology, little to no pressure is placed on teeth as they are gently guided into place.

With In-Ovation system braces, achieving a beautiful, healthy smile is fast and comfortable. The patient-friendly design means that you spend less time in the chair, experience less discomfort and need fewer office appointments than with older style braces.
Why’s In-Ovation different?

Free-sliding technology means you have less discomfort and a faster treatment than with traditional style braces.

Traditional braces use elastics and ties. This puts pressure and friction on your teeth, which slows down your treatment and causes discomfort in many patients.

With In-Ovation You Can Have...
  • Faster results
  • Shorter appointments
  • Fewer office visits
  • Greater comfort
  • Improved facial proportion and appearance

March 3rd is National Anthem Day

March 3rd is National Anthem Day! On this day, we celebrate and honor the national anthem of the United States of America, the Star Spangled Banner. The Star Spangled Banner was written by Fancis Scott Key while serving in the Georgetown Light Field Artillery during the War of 1812. It wasn’t until March 3rd, 1931 that The Star Spangled Banner was officially the national anthem of the USA.

To celebrate this great anthem of our nation, we thought it would be fun to share some videos of different famous artists and people singing the National Anthem!

Watch these videos to see some wonderful performances of The Star Spangled Banner!

Do you know 3 or more verses of the song? As a challenge, take some time to sing the National Anthem today and see how many lines you know! Then, try memorizing all of the lyrics! There is a great honor that comes with knowing the words and singing them whole heartedly. Morristown Orthodontics recognizes National Anthem Day & hopes you will too!
