What Makes Us Unique

Invisalign Diamond Logo

Digital Imaging

Our digital imaging and radiography help to make accurate decisions concerning your treatment with minimal radiation. And we all agree-less radiation is good!

Self-Ligating Braces and Heat Activated Super-Elastic Wires

With the newest self-closing (self-ligating) braces, patients require less appointments as these braces are continually active in moving teeth. New heat activated super-elastic wires (nickel-titanium alloy wire developed down the road by NASA engineers) are constantly producing a light biological force that is activated by your body temperature. Self-ligating braces and super-elastic wires are known to decrease the number and length of office visits, the overall length of treatment and discomfort. Nice!

Digital Impression System

Trailblazing in technology again, in 2012, we became the first orthodontic practice in Brevard County to purchase a digital impression system. This system is the latest computer guidance technology for our Invisalign patients, which eliminates the need for uncomfortable impressions. This new digital impression system electronically scans the interior of the mouth, providing the most accurate patient information available for Dr. Caudill & Dr. McNeight. Together, with their artistic and experienced precision of properly aligning teeth, augmented by the latest technology, our orthodontists create incredibly beautiful results. The scanner is also available for patients who are nervous and apprehensive about impressions for retainers!

Laser Technology

Our diode laser is an incredible advancement and addition to our practice! Sparing you the technical details, this technology can optimize the placement of braces, accelerate tooth eruption or improve the overall esthetics of your straight smile. We utilize our laser to make treatment more efficient and sometimes spare you a trip to another dental specialist.
