Orthodontic Appliances at OrthoDenco

OrthoDenco is a full-service Orthodontic lab facility, at the lab we have the ability to make the simplest and most ubiquitous appliances like a retainer, to the most complex and custom made. Retainers, again, are the most common and we do those all the time, but not each case is the same. Even with retainers, a lot of times we have our doctors calling in to talk to our technicians about designing or changing the design on a particular retainer, to address a specific need. It goes the same across the board. We have other appliances that we do all the time, including functionals like the Herbst appliance, that sometimes need to be modified for a specific need or purpose. Including the age of the patient, which matters a lot in terms of the size of the mouth, and how do you lay out the design of the appliance, it can be efficient while also comfortable for the patient.
