One of the things that sets Dr. Vickie Greenberg apart from other Orthodontists is her superior technology. Dr. Geenberg specializes in non-invasive orthodontic techniques to treat everything from TMJ to Sleep Apnea, and the best technology makes that simpler and easier.
Her latest acquisition is the i-Cat FLX. It’s cutting-edge technology that helps to evaluate and diagnose even the most complicated cases with speed and efficiency. Read on to learn more about how this technology makes life easier for Dr. Greenberg’s patients!
Airway Orthodontics and The i-Cat FLX
Airway orthodontics is a subfield of orthodontic treatment that helps to improve the overall health of each patient, of any age group. It focuses on the body’s oxygen intake in connection with the structure of the facial structure, including the mouth, jaws, and teeth-hence the name, Airway Orthodontics.
The i-Cat FLX is imaging technology that produces 3D pictures of the entire mouth structure. Dr. Greenberg can see what’s going on behind the scenes in your mouth-from your teeth down to the structure of your jaw.
What’s really great about this technology is it makes it easier for you to see and understand what’s happening, during your initial exam up until the final day of treatment. You don’t have to just take your orthodontists word for it anymore!
Sleep Apnea and The i-Cat FLX
Sleep Apnea is commonly detected as a snoring problem. Problems with heavy snoring go far beyond keeping your partner up at night-although that can definitely be a problem! Snoring can affect your entire lifestyle. When you snore heavily, you’re not getting sufficient oxygen for restful productive sleep, which can lead to fatigue, lack of focus, and moodiness.
The i-Cat FLX can project images of not only your teeth and jaw, but your nasal passages all the way down to your throat. This advantage makes it easier to diagnose and treat Sleep Apnea more quickly and efficiently than ever before.
TMJ and The i-Cat FLX
TMJ, or Jaw Pain, is one of those things you don’t really understand until you’ve suffered through it yourself. TMJ can be a hindrance at best, and almost debilitating at its worst. It can hinder your ability to eat, and the pain can be distracting and make life difficult to manage.
TMJ and Jaw Pain can be caused by countless factors, and the i-Cat FLX can detect these issues more efficiently and accurately than other imaging technology. The images are clear, precise and detailed, making it easier for Dr. Greenberg to create a specific treatment plan for your TMJ, sometimes instantly!
