REVIEW: 3Shape TRIOS dental digital impression scanner

There are many factors to consider before purchasing a digital scanner that will aid in the digital impression process. The 3Shape TRIOS Dental Digital Impression Scanner allows dentists to enhance the patient experience and more.

As a dentist, one goal for your practice is to create quality and precise restorations that fit patients and thus improve their quality of life. The only way to achieve accurate and long-lasting results is to switch to digital impressions. Traditional impressions risk distortion. Digital scanners, however, capture precise results in a more efficient and time-effective manner. They also increase patient’s level of comfort and satisfaction.

With digital impressions, a dentist can immediately review the scan while the patient views the scan chairside. This means any errors can be corrected on the spot. Then, the digital impression can be sent to a lab where dentures, crowns, bridges, and other restoration models can be made quickly and accurately.

Converting to digital impressions can be scary. When looking at the marketplace, there are many factors to consider before purchasing a digital scanner that will aid in the digital impression process. The 3Shape TRIOS Dental Digital Impression Scanner allows dentists to enhance the patient experience, reduce chair time, and improve the longevity and accuracy of restorations.
