Like every branch of medicine and dentistry, it's important to keep up with the latest techniques and technology available. Modern advances in treatment modalities such as 3D scanning and 3D printing have made it possible to delivery dazzling results in less time and with less discomfort. Learn how our modern equipment can deliver head-turning results without the messy (and often unpleasant) techniques of the past.
No more disgusting, gag-reflex-inducing impressions. At Bloom Orthodontics we use the iTero® 3D scanner to capture a highly accurate digital model of your teeth for analysis and treatment planning. It's fast, convenient and involves absolutely no radiation.
Once we've captured an image of your teeth with our 3D scanner, we can 3D print an exact replica of your teeth to make retainers and other orthodontic appliances. The printer is so accurate that we rarely have any issues with fit or comfort. It's truly a win/win for us and our patients!
X-Rays machines have come a long way. Our digital x-ray machine uses a very low amount of radiation to capture images of your teeth and jaws. In fact, its so low that there is some evidence suggesting lead aprons are no longer necessary! (But don't worry, we still use a lead apron on every patient just to be safe).
