Dr. Schulhof specializes in lingual orthodontics, or Incognito, which is a method of straightening the teeth by placing brackets and wires on the back of the teeth. This method is effective in fixing misalignment without anyone seeing the brackets or wires on the teeth. Dr. Schulhof also works on an advisory board and has become a leader for Incognito. Furthermore, he has given many lectures all over the world that focus on lingual orthodontics, and he spends time researching and developing.

Above all, for those who are looking to go the traditional route for their orthodontic work, Dr. Schulhof excels in that area, as well. He believes each patient should be able to personalize their own treatment, and that they deserve the best he can give no matter which route they choose to take. Other services offered by Dr. Schulhof include:

 

Invisalign

Firstly, Invisalign uses clear aligner trays to straighten the teeth. This method only works for patients who have minor crowding, crookedness, or spacing issues. The aligner trays can be taken out at any time, but the patient should wear them for at least 22 hours a day.

 

WildSmiles

WildSmiles are specifically designed to make the orthodontic process more enjoyable for kids. Instead of traditional brackets, kids can choose from different bracket shapes such as footballs, flowers, and diamonds. Different color options are available as well.

 

Incognito

As mentioned above, Incognito is a method that places the brackets and wires on the back of the teeth. As a result, this makes the process less obvious and allows the patient to hide their treatment.

 

Incognito Lite

Incognito Lite is the same as Incognito, except that the brackets are smaller. The brackets also don’t go on the molars. Thus, this method is only available for patients who have minor alignment issues.

 

Propel

Propel is a system that will be done in the office that will stimulate the bone around the teeth. Doing this speeds up the bone remodeling process, and shortens the overall treatment time.

 

iTero Intraoral Scanner

This process uses a scanning wand that goes inside of the mouth, taking pictures of the teeth. Furthermore, as it takes the pictures, the system puts the pictures together to create a model of the teeth.

 

3M True Definition Scanner

Like the iTero Intraoral Scanner, the 3M True Definition Scanner also makes it possible to have a 3D model of the teeth in a short amount of time, without using messy goop. This method takes video instead of pictures, however.

 

Clarity Advanced by 3M

Clarity Advanced by 3M is an orthodontic procedure that uses ceramic brackets instead of traditional brackets. These ceramic brackets are designed to blend into the teeth, so it is harder to detect that there are braces on the teeth. They are clear and will not stain during the treatment process.
