Technology: The latest, most advanced technologies

With recent technology advancements, orthodontic patients are able to spend less time in the office while still attaining a beautiful smile. At Stormberg Orthodontics, we’re committed to using the latest methods and technology to ensure our patients get the most efficient and accurate treatment. In our La Mesa office, you’ll find the iTero install scanner, which provides Dr. Stormberg with precise, 3-D images of the mouth so he can create a customized treatment plan for each patient.

Traditionally, orthodontic offices would take putty impressions of their patient’s teeth, which are uncomfortable, messy and most importantly, time consuming. However, at our office, we’ve made the patient experience much smoother, timely and comfortable with iTero digital scans.

    Answers To Your FAQs From Dr. Kurt Stormberg

    At what age should I schedule an appointment for an orthodontic screening?

    American Association of Orthodontists recommend you should schedule your child’s first appointment by age 7.  Orthodontic treatment and a child’s growth can complement each other.  By timing orthodontic treatment to predictable stages of dental development, the orthodontist may be able to take advantage of your child’s growth and development.  Some problems that can be treated quite well in a growing child may require corrective surgery or permanent teeth to be extracted if treated after growth has occurred.

    What will I learn from the initial examination?

    Dr. Stormberg will thoroughly explain your options to you after he completes the exam, and will recommend the best course of treatment. You’ll learn the answers to five important questions during your consultation appointment, including:

    • Is there an orthodontic issue, and if so, what is it?
    • What treatment is needed to correct the problem? Can braces and/or Invisalign correct the problem?
    • Will any teeth need to be removed?
    • How long will treatment take?
    • How much will treatment cost?
    How much will orthodontic treatment cost?

    We can only determine treatment costs after your initial consultation is completed, as each patient’s case is unique. You can learn more about our Financing & Insurance policies on our website, or speak to one of our staff members at the office. We’ll review your financing options with you, and will work with you to maximize your insurance benefits.

    Is it too late to have orthodontic treatment if I am already an adult?

    Adult orthodontics is becoming more common, as orthodontic treatment helps increase overall happiness level, health, and self-esteem. It’s never too late for a beautiful smile!

    Orthodontics for All Ages

    Kids

    Our mission is to help each one of our patients achieve a beautiful, healthy smile that lasts them a lifetime – and sometimes, that process has to start early. While many of our patients are teenagers or adults, in some cases, starting orthodontic treatment at an early age offers the best option for achieving a beautiful, lifelong smile.

    Teens

    The early teenage years are typically the best time for orthodontic treatment. This is because the patient is still growing and tooth movement and bite correction can occur more efficiently. We provide a variety of orthodontic treatments for our teenage patients, including clear braces and Invisalign.

    Adults

    We believe it’s never too late for a healthy, beautiful smile. That’s why we treat patients of all ages – including adults – with orthodontic treatments including braces and Invisalign clear aligners.
    We proudly provide treatment to military personnel, as well as SDSU and the University of San Diego to help adult college students improve their smiles. No matter where you are in life, we’ll design a personalized treatment plan that fits your lifestyle so you can achieve the smile of your dreams.
