3Shape has released TRIOS® 3,a significantly smaller, lighter and faster version of its award-winning intraoral scanner and digital impression solution at the opening of the 36th International Dental Show (IDS) in Cologne, Germany.
TRIOS 3, the third generation of its intraoral colour scanner and digital impression solution is now available in both a pen grip design, handle grip and chair mount version. The new TRIOS 3 also features an intraoral camera integrated with the high-speed 3D colour intraoral scanner and a smaller and rounded scan tip for enhanced patient comfort.
TRIOS 3 - three-in-one digital impression solution highlights include:
- Smaller pen grip option - for the award-winning 3D colour intraoral scanner;
- Integrated intraoral camera included - no need to purchase one separately; and
- Automatic teeth shade measurement tool - for more accurate and predictable results and greater diagnostics.
"Dentists like to work differently. That's why we strive to provide as many options as possible: like our flexible TRIOS hardware configurations and open software solutions," said Flemming Thorup, president and CEO at 3Shape. "It should be up to you to decide on the equipment you want to use. TRIOS and our other 3Shape dental solutions support your freedom to choose by being open and constantly evolving through software updates. And because of that, they are future-proof. With 3Shape, your solutions literally get better with age, instead of outdated."
RealColor™ digital impressions
TRIOS received the Pride Institute "Best of Class" Technology Award for the second year in a row in 2014. 3Shape high speed and accurate colour scanning and user friendliness is continually recognized for delivering "Best of Class" value to dentists and the dental industry.
Automatic shade measurement and bite registration during scanning
As the dentist scans, the TRIOS automatically matches the various teeth shades and stores all the shade values together with the digital impression. This eliminates the extra manual step of visually matching shades using shade guides. Auto bite registration eliminates the manual step of aligning the bite within the scan.
Integrated intraoral camera and HD Photos
HD Photos enable dentists to enhance significant details and accurately set the margin line. Use the intraoral camera to take live video and pictures to discuss treatment options with patients. The intraoral camera will be available in an upcoming TRIOS software update.
Widest range of indications
TRIOS 3 supports the widest range of dental indications - from implant bridges to removable partials - to give patients more treatment options and dentists more opportunities for quicker return on investment. Dedicated scan-workflows for specific indications ensure optimal accuracy, ease-of-use and outstanding clinical results.
Powerful scan and validation tools
TRIOS 3 smart and easy-to-use software tools ensure superior quality of both impression and preparation while patients are still in the chair.
Flexible hardware options
TRIOS 3 is available both as a pen grip model and with a handle. Other TRIOS models include TRIOS Color - in its traditional shape with colour scanning, shade measurement and HD photos. And TRIOS Standard - in its traditional shape with black and white scanning.
