iTERO DIGITAL SCANNER

The iTero Element scanner digital impression system eliminates the need for traditional alginate impressions. Using the scanner, we can now digitally capture a detailed, 3D model of your teeth and gums. A team member will place a small wand in your mouth to capture high quality images of your teeth. These images are then printed on a 3D printer to create a 3D model. Dr. Tran uses the model to customize retainers and Invisalign trays that best fit your teeth. The iTero scanner is radiation-free.

3D PRINTER

With an in-house 3D printer, we can print an exact replica of your teeth in acrylic with accuracy down to 50 microns. We save the file from your oral scan and import it into our printer. The digital workflow systems we have at Tran Orthodontics not only gives our patients accurate, well-fitting appliances, but it becomes very efficient as we coordinate lab work between our two locations. The goal of our office is efficiency and reduced turnaround times for appliance delivery to our patients.

Soft Tissue Laser

At Tran Orthodontics, soft tissue lasers are used to contour excess gum tissue that may exist over a tooth or group of teeth. Sometimes, we just need to clear away a small amount of tissue to be able to access a tooth better for improved brace positioning. Other times, we may want to sculpt the gum tissue to improve the cosmetics of your smile.
