TRIOS Intraoral Scanner
What is a TRIOS Intraoral Scanner?
Say good-bye to the days of gagging on trays of gooey impression material while your dentist takes a dental impression. We have installed the innovative new TRIOS Intraoral Scanner that quickly and comfortably takes three-dimensional, full-color digital impressions of teeth, gums, oral structures, existing dentures, and implants in record time. This small handheld device is placed in a patient’s mouth to retrieve computer-accurate images (radiation-free photos) that can be viewed immediately—by both patient and doctor—on a screen in our office.
Purpose of the TRIOS Intraoral Scanner
Thanks to cutting-edge technology, we are able to easily create dental impressions that can be used to design and produce effective surgical guides and restorations, track gingival changes, and create mockups. Digital impressions gathered by Trios are used for the same procedures as traditional dental impressions, including:
- Dental crowns and bridges
- Dentures and removable partials
- Full mouth rehabilitation
- Clear braces

- Education—allows patients to view 3D images of the mouth
- Efficiency—digitally communicates with labs, avoiding remakes
- Research—follows changes in gingiva over the years
- Security—produces digital mock-ups of the proposed treatment
- Accuracy—provides perfect color match and surgical guides for implant surgery
Informative and Detailed
Our Trios not only provides detailed scans of the oral structures that help our doctor in her planning and operative procedures, but the images are used to explain various dental procedures and processes to our patients—not commonly accessible via conventional impressions—educating them more extensively on the details of their oral health and proposed treatments while minimizing visits and maximizing consultation time.
Reduced Risk and Safety
Customizing treatment and making decisions according to your particular case is our specialty. The Trios Intraoral Scanner allows our surgeon to see the structures of your jaw, teeth, and surrounding tissue, ensuring proper placement of the restorations and minimizing the risk of unexpected complications.
The Trios Intraoral Scanner is the safest method for gathering images available today. The device is smaller than the traditional trays, making the intraoral scanner an excellent option for those with severe gagging reflexes. What’s more, the process entails taking pictures, not x-rays, which involves no radiation.
