Advanced Technology

At Crow River Orthodontics, Dr. DeRocher utilizes the latest in orthodontic technology. Cutting-edge procedures, techniques, and equipment help us determine orthodontic issues with expedience and accelerate your treatment.

Stride Custom Braces

With traditional orthodontics you get a one-size-fits-all approach to treatment. It works, but it requires more adjustments and guesswork by your orthodontist throughout your time in braces. That means more orthodontic appointments and more time in braces. But with Stride Custom, your treatment is customized to your unique anatomy, so you get to your new smile faster than ever.

3M Clarity Aligners

These aligners are made from smooth, clear plastic and designed as an “invisible” alternative to traditional metal braces that provides noticeable results. They’re customized to fit the unique shape and contours of your teeth and gums for a comfortable fit. No irritation to gums and cheeks that you may encounter with traditional braces.

Trios Digital Impressions

3Shape TRIOS® Ortho allows orthodontists like Dr. DeRocher greater ease in creating digital study models from the impressions. Trios’s advanced tool allow for more thorough treatment planning and case analysis. By replacing manual methods with digital impression taking, orthodontists (and patients!) can reap a wide range of business benefits such as reduced chair time, increased comfort, fewer retakes, and durable impressions. Trios is top of the line technology!

Indirect Bonding

A typical bonding appointment can take up to an hour to isolate each tooth and place each bracket. The patient’s cheeks are retracted and it’s not very comfortable which is one of the many reasons we offer Indirect Bonding. We create a 3D model of the patient’s teeth and determine the exact placement on that model. Then we use a custom tray to transfer the brackets from the model to the patient’s teeth, all at once. It can cut chair time in half compared to traditional placement. Contact us for more information!
