Why should I look for an ortho with a lab?

Orthodontic offices come in all sorts of shapes and sizes and depend heavily on the personal preferences of the practice’s doctors. Some people prefer a very traditional style of treatment, and others like to utilize all the latest technologies to help patients reach their goals. At Alizadeh & Schreiner Orthodontics, we believe that technology is the key to efficient treatment that gives our patients amazing results, and we invest in the tools, education, and equipment that creates this world-class care.

One of the greatest assets within the office is our on-site laboratory. Our specially-trained team is able to utilize the lab to create appliances that fit any patients’ needs, without paying the price of outsourcing to another specialist. Here are 3 reasons an on-site laboratory helps our patients and can make all the difference in your orthodontic treatment:

1. Quick, easy turn-around

After meeting your orthodontist for the first time, you’re probably excited to begin the path to a beautiful smile. Nothing curbs that enthusiasm quite like a 3-month waiting period! By creating our own appliances right in our office, we’re able to offer quick service and a fast turnaround in the case of an emergency.

2. In-house adjustments

Everyone’s teeth are different, and so are the accessories we need to create and maintain a straight smile. Because our teeth are constantly moving, sometimes a retainer or other piece that used to fit can become less effective, or begin irritating parts of the mouth. When your orthodontist has direct access to a lab, you’ll be able to get appliances adjusted without shipping them off or paying for something brand new. Orthodontic treatment doesn’t have to be painful, and with in-house adjustments, we make sure our patients leave comfortably every time!

3. Highest quality appliances

At Alizadeh & Schreiner, we pride ourselves on having some of the top doctors, team members, and technology in the country. As great as the convenience of an on-site lab is, the best part of being our patient is your access to cutting-edge technology like 3D printing, indirect bonding, and treatment time reducers. Our laboratory allows us to fabricate custom space maintainers, retainers, and habit appliances with an unmatched level of precision and quality control.
