3 Shape TRIOS Scanner
General dentistry has made huge advancement in the last decade, and now a new tool is available with such a great impact that it has the potential to revolutionize the dental industry. The TRIOS Intraoral Scanner allows dentists to take a full three-dimensional image of the tooth as well as match the exact color of your teeth when creating a new crown, denture, or dental implant.
How Does It Work?
The 3 Shape TRIOS Scanner allows dentists to take high definition, three dimensional impression of the teeth without any discomfort. In the past, impressions of the teeth were made using dental putty that patients had to bite down on. It was messy and unenjoyable. With the TRIOS, we can take impressions of your teeth without touching any part of the mouth. The TRIOS is a dental scanner that is held over the areas of the mouth where scans need to be taken. Patients simply have to open their mouths!
The TRIOS is used to assess different issues within the mouth, from how a patient’s bite fits together to the precise shape and color of the teeth. When a patient needs to have a dental crown, veneer, denture, or implant created, it is imperative that the fabricated tooth be created so that it fits comfortably in the mouth. It is also important that a dental crown, veneer, or other restoration be color-matched to the other teeth so that they offer a pleasing and natural-looking appearance. The 3 Shape TRIOS Scanner offers all of this precision, and it is available here at the dental practice of Dr. Wayne G. Suway.
With the TRIOS scanner, we are able to take a precise measurement of the entire surface area of a tooth digitally, and from this an exact replica of the tooth can be made. Because of this precision, an impression taken by the TRIOS is reliable and exact. Patients are also given the unique opportunity to view a full color, high definition image of their teeth so that they are able to see and understand the exact treatment that they will receive.
Dr. Suway is proud to offer this outstanding dental technology to his patients. All restorative dental procedures require experience, knowledge, and customized precision. Dr. Suway has been awarded a Mastership of Dentistry by the Academy of General Dentistry, a distinction that has earned him the respect of both colleagues and patients. Your smile is important to you, which makes it important to Dr. Wayne Suway.
