How quickly one year can go by? Today is Ashley's first day back from her maternity leave! We are so happy to have her back.

Team Bibby members Christi, Brenda and Ashley attended this years event with our 3rd Bibby Orthodontics booth. This years speaker was Margaret Trudeau, which was totally amazing!

Exciting News - iTero tooth scanner!!
We now have a high-tech 3D iTero tooth scanner which electronically scans and records the shape of your teeth. With this, we can provide Invisalign treatment to our patients without ANY moulds being done. A few minutes after the scan, we can show you how your teeth could look when straightened! The can can be sent to Invisalign, so we can plan the most appropriate movements for your teeth. As well as being more comfortable for the patient, this technology is faster and more accurate - meaning we can get you the smile you have always wanted, sooner.

OCTOBER is National Orthodontic Month
This is a great time to bring awareness to Orthodontic screening and when it should be done for the first time. A good "rule of thumb" is any time after the age of 6-7 and/or if the top and bottom front 4 permanent teeth and 6 year molars are in. This gives Dr. Bibby the best opportunity to evaluate if there are bite concerns that would benefit from being treated early as Intercetive or Phase I treatement. If no treatment is required, the patient is moved to an observation or Growth Guidance status until they would be ready for active orthodontics.
