High-Tech Orthodontics

South Belmont Orthodontics & Oral Surgery is a completely digital orthodontic practice. We are proud to offer our patients the ease and convenience of the latest technology in the industry.



No more goop, gagging, or discomfort. Using an iTero scanner, your orthodontist can take a highly accurate digital impression of your teeth and jaw.



This advanced imaging technology allows us to evaluate the underlying bone structure, as well as the nerve pathways and surrounding soft tissues.



Our digital X-Rays give us a full picture during your exam so we can discuss everything from treatment options to an estimate for how long treatment will last.
