iTero 3D scanner
The iTero scanner is a revolutionary new machine which can scan your teeth in minutes instead of having messy and uncomfortable impressions.
It can give you a computer simulation of how your teeth could look when they are straight within 2 minutes, it will be tailor made for your mouth. It is comfortable, reliable, safe and accurate.
Not only is a digital impression more comfortable, it’s also much more accurate. The scanner takes an incredibly detailed impression of your teeth and gums. Once the scan is complete, Dr. Vu will then have a 3D model of your mouth that can be used to create Invisalign® clear aligners, retainers, and any orthodontic appliances required for treatment.
After your initial consultation with Dr. Vu and with your input it can be further enhanced to meet your requirements, showing you the beautiful smile you always wanted.
This process can speed up the start of your Invisalign treatment which could begin within a week or two compared to other conventional methods which can take up to 3-4 weeks.
In addition there are no impressions needed which many people find a difficult part of the journey and this method is very interactive – you can see your teeth in 3D and discuss your treatment plan with Dr. Vu.
Bloom Orthodontics is only one of a few practices in Long Beach to use this pioneering technology.
