iTero 3D Scanner
Digital Technology for Modern Orthodontic Treatment
The iTero intraoral 3D scanner is a revolutionary new machine which can take digital pictures of your teeth in minutes. Bloom Orthodontics is proud to be one of the few modern orthodontic practices in Long Beach to use this pioneering technology.
A digital impression from iTero is more comfortable than traditional impressions. It eliminates the need to bite into a tray of messy and bad-tasting goop.
Not only is a digital impression more comfortable, but it is also more accurate. The scanner takes a detailed impression of your teeth and gums. Once the scan is complete, Dr. Vu will have a 3D model of your mouth that can be used to create Invisalign® clear aligners, retainers, and any orthodontic appliances required for treatment.
Plus, the iTero technology also shows how your teeth could look within two minutes through computer simulation, tailor-made for your mouth. It is also interactive. You can see your teeth in 3D and discuss your treatment plan with Dr. Vu.
Digital impressions also speed up the start of your Invisalign treatment. With conventional impression methods, your Invisalign can take up to four weeks to start. With digital impressions, your treatment can begin within a week.
