TADS/Laser/Whitening

Here at Dr. Dann Orthodontics, we have many options for helping patients straighten their teeth and make their smile brighter. No matter if you’re receiving treatment through aligners using Invisalign, Invisalign Teen, or traditional braces, our different whitening and treatment options can help you with everything from fighting gingivitis to brightening enamel. 


About T.A.D.S.

A temporary anchorage device system (T.A.D.S.) is a treatment option for moving teeth when traditional methods might interfere with or exacerbate skeletal issues. This system may be able to help patients move teeth into even better positions than would be possible with other treatment options. Because every patient is unique, Dr. Dann will consult with you at either or Winter Park, FL or Orlando, FL office to see if T.A.D.S. is the right choice for your particular situation.

Laser Options

Advancements in dental technology have made laser treatments safer and more effective. Moreover, these treatments have many benefits, such as cutting down on recovery time and being nearly painless. Here at Dr. Dann Orthodontics, we use a 940 Ezlase diode to help with a variety of issues like:

  • Frenectomy
  • Gingival recontouring
  • Gingival hypertrophy reduction
  • Gingival inflammation reduction
  • Gingivectomy
  • Gingivoplasty
  • Lengthening of soft tissue crowns
  • Operculectomy
  • Soft tissue exposure for un-erupted teeth

There will likely be minimal bleeding and discomfort during a laser procedure. The use of this treatment varies with each patient, though. Dr. Dann will discuss your options and the details of laser procedures with you thoroughly in order to help you decide if this option is right for you.
