Chair side scanning

TRIOS3Shape TRIOS is a digital impression system which will allow you to quickly capture an accurate a detailed 3D representation of your patients preparations and adjacent teeth. Digital impression systems are not new however slow scan times, inflexible scan patterns, limited accuracy, restrictive business models and the need for powder coating of the teeth has meant that the adoption of such technology has been slow. TRIOS revolutionises digital impressions. Fast scan times means you can scan the preparation, adjacent teeth and antagonist in 2-3 minutes and it is so easy to use, the learning curve is typically only a couple of weeks. A sleek and mobile cart comes complete with a large touch screen monitor packed full of functionality to ensure you get the perfect impression every time. On creation of your order, you will define your prescription specific to your selected laboratory and the software will guide you through the steps. For example, when scanning an implant case, on removal of the healing abutment, you can quickly scan the emergence profile before it starts to collapse, lock this area and then continue scanning. A second scan with a 'scan abutment' in place will ensure that an accurate location, depth and orientation of the implant is captured. After completing the validation steps your case is immediately transferred to your chosen laboratory where they can review it and validate it even before your patient has left the clinic.

Seamless Communication with your Laboratory

3Shape CommunicateTM offers a simple and efficient method of communication with your laboratory. Once the scan has been completed and validated it will be automatically sent to your chosen laboratory which is using 3shape systems. If you want to work with a lab that is not yet using 3Shape CAD/CAM solutions, we can get them up and running with a range of different solutions that will enable them accept your TRIOS digital impression.
