We are proud to announce that we are a select few elite Orthodontists in Texas that use AI technology-assisted digital set-up coupled with 3D printing to custom fabricate our very own clear aligners right here in our office. We scan your teeth, then Dr. Chary-Reddy digitally aligns them; 3D models are printed; VK Aligners are fabricated and packaged. Ask for a tour of our 3D printing facility, we would love to show you our high-tech work in action. Come and ask us if you are a candidate for VK Aligners.
Clear aligner treatment takes the metal out of orthodontics and gives you an aesthetic treatment option that produces fantastic, lasting results.
Often with this type of treatment, aligners are created offsite and shipped to our office, where we then distribute them to you. However, using our own 3D printing capabilities, we are able to cut out the middleman and create your aligners right here in our office, enabling you to begin treatment sooner and saving you a considerable amount of time waiting for new aligners during your treatment.
To begin your clear aligner treatment, we will generate digital models of your mouth and upload the data into our treatment planning software. From there, we will formulate a treatment plan, addressing the specific movement of each tooth to attend to your smile and bite issues. Once your treatment plan is complete, we print your first set of aligners and begin your smile transformation.
Aligners created with our 3D printer are made of the same material as traditional aligners, which makes them just as strong, clear, and effective as their more time-consuming and expensive counterparts. Plus, if your treatment plan ever needs to be adjusted, or you misplace one of your aligners, we can simply re-print a new set of aligners.
3D printing is just one of the ways we are dedicated to improving your overall orthodontic experience. Through advanced technology and our expertise, you can achieve the smile you’ve always wanted — faster and more cost effectively than ever.
