Welcome First Grade!

March 5th, 2019

 

We welcomed 125 first graders from Pioneer Elementary to Lineberry Orthodontics to celebrate Dental Health Month.   This was our 10th year hosting the field trip and we LOVED having all those young smiles in our office.   Here are some of the fun things we learned about:

  • We learned important information about keeping our teeth and gums healthy by brushing, flossing, eating less sweets, eating well-balanced meals and visiting the dentist at least one time every year.
  • We saw 3-D cone beam images of a person’s head and jaws.
  • We made our own impression (an imprint) with alginate (made from seaweed). We got to pick any flavor we wanted!
  • We poured plaster into our impression which hardened into the model we got to keep.
  • We saw what braces and retainers look like and how retainers are made on a model of someone’s teeth.
  • We saw a life-sized model of a child’s head and learned how teeth form in the jaw bones.
  • We saw the “magic” wires that orthodontists use to help straighten teeth.

Thank you so much to Pioneer first grade teachers who shared their classes with us; we can’t wait to see you next year!

Look at the Lineberry staff smile.  We are excited to see our patients today because so many are getting their braces off.  We love new SMILES!

 

Check Out Our New 3D Scanner

February 5th, 2019

Our new 3D i-CAT scanner creates high-resolution 3D images of your teeth, jaws, bones, nerves, sinuses, head and neck.  This amazing new technology is going to make you smile as big as Dr. Laura because it  means:

  • Shorter treatment time,
  • 75% less radiation as compared to traditional x-rays
  • More space and a comfy seat

This new technology means a better orthodontic experience for you: we can’t wait to share it!
