I’ve been taking my kids to Wilson and Kim Orthodontics for the last 7 years. Today I brought two of my kids in for their appointment. Our family has been having a rough time of it. Getting to our appointment was a challenge in itself. As soon as I walked into their office feeling drained and broken, I immediately felt at peace, like I was with my closest family. The genuine love and care this office shows for everyone is above and beyond. I’m so thankful to know these amazing humans who make this world a better place. Not only do they give the best orthodontist care, they do all they can to make you feel comfortable and supported.
Most fabulous and kind orthodontists and staff who do the most wonderful job. I am low income and they made it very easy and affordable. I love these people !
I conducted a lot of research before I chose Wilson and Kim. They have been true to their word and they are excellent orthodontists. The entire team is so attentive and caring. As a working adult, I also appreciate their efficiency - they are always on time with my appointments. It's a very well oiled machine! I am in good hands. Highly recommend.
Digital X-ray machines more accurately diagnose your or your child’s orthodontic condition. They offer many advantages in detecting and treating orthodontic problems with significantly less radiation, and are just one of the ways in which computer technology is advancing orthodontic treatment.
- Less radiation exposure for our patients
- Quicker, more efficient record taking during appointments
- Improved diagnostic and analysis capacity
- Advanced image manipulation and computer enhancement
- Increased enlargement capabilities
- Easier exchange of records for treatment coordination with other dental professionals
- Less environmental impact (No chemicals or film to dispose, less paper used)
The greatest benefit of digital X-rays is that our doctors can use computer enhancement to make the images larger and clearer, and he can also modify the contrast in order to better study specific areas.
This means he can more accurately diagnose your or your child’s orthodontic condition and create the customized treatment plan required to correct the problem. He will also be able to better illustrate the condition and treatment plan so that you will understand every step of your or your child’s orthodontic journey.
Take a look at the images below. The top image (shown below) was taken of a 7-year-old child with a conventional film X-ray machine. Something looked suspicious to Dr. Don, so he took his own digital X-ray to allow for computer enhancement.
The bottom image is our digital X-ray. You can see clearly the extra tooth that we were able to diagnose and treat at an early age with no complications. This is just one example of how technology can improve our ability to recognize problems at a young age, and why all children should be seen by an orthodontist at age 7.
