TRIOS Scanner – Bowling Green, OH
No More Messy, Uncomfortable Impressions
If you have ever had to receive a dental crown or other restoration, you might remember an uncomfortable experience as your dentist used a goopy material to take an impression of your teeth. You had to hold the impression tray in your mouth for what seemed like forever, and even then it wasn’t guaranteed that the impression would be accurate and usable. You might have to go through the impression process a second time.
Digital dentistry is changing all of that. Thanks to advances in digital technology, old-fashioned manual impressions are quickly becoming a thing of the past. Here at Kaiser Family Dentistry, we have invested in the remarkable TRIOS scanner from 3Shape, which one of the best digital impression tools on the market.
How Digital Impressions work
Many dentists have intraoral cameras in their office, which let them take detailed photos of their patients’ mouths. Patients can even see the feed from such cameras on a nearby monitor so they can understand their oral health on a deeper level.
A digital impression scanner is like a souped-up version of that intraoral camera. It takes thousands of images of your teeth and gums and assembles them into a three-dimensional rendering. Your dentist in Bowling Green can then use that image to design restorations, such as crowns, bridges, and more. Therefore, this is no need for messy, uncomfortable impression trays. Plus, the scanning process is quick, which will cut down on your total appointment time and let you get back to your life that much faster.
There are quite a few companies that manufacture digital impression technology. However, the TRIOS scanner offers some unique features that make it stand out from its peers.
Meet the TRIOS Scanner
Some of the TRIOS scanner’s most remarkable features include:
- A wireless scanning wand. The wire-free experience makes the scanning process faster and more comfortable for both you and your dentist.
- Remarkable accuracy. Independent studies have found that the TRIOS scanner is much more accurate than manual impressions. Its accuracy is even better than that of other major intraoral scanner systems.
- Realistic colors. When your dentist uses your scans to explain your treatment, the lifelike colors of the image will make it easy for you to understand what the image is displaying.
- Advanced software. The scanner works alongside state-of-the-art software that benefits both dentists and patients. For example, TRIOS can record your mouth’s movements to help the dentist analyze your bite. Also, because the software works on an open system, your dentist can easily share your scans with relevant parties, such as dental laboratories.
