Enjoy easy impression taking and eliminate retakes

“With many IO scanners, I needed to keep my hand completely steady. Any movement of the patient or my hand was enough to make the scan useless for clinical work. TRIOS® lets you to move naturally and you can touch the teeth while you scan because it is powder-free,” Dr. Simon Kold, Herning Implant Center.

Get digital accuracy and omit manual errors

“Analog impressioning for the restoration of implants can be so inaccurate. You can never capture implant position and angulation precisely. With digital, there’s no chance for distortion. It’s completely correct and enormously valuable,” Dr. Jonathan L. Ferencz, Prosthodontist, USA.

4 years in a row

TRIOS® has won the Cellerant "Best of Class" Technology Award for intraoral scanners four years in a row (2013-16).

"What really impressed our panel is the dedication the TRIOS team has in constantly improving its intraoral scanner, year after year. 3Shape continues to add new features and 3rd party integrations while optimizing workflows to make the digital impressions solution the market's most powerful and easiest to use,"
Dr. Lou Shuman, creator and founder of the Cellerant "Best of Class” Award.


Improve patient experience and comfort

“I have a patient who dreads taking traditional impressions because of his gag-reflex. I’ve even had difficulty scanning him with scanners. However, with TRIOS® I can stop, let him relax and then re-start when he is ready. He is definitely a big fan of TRIOS®,” Dr. Wendy AuClair Clark, DDS, MS, USA.

Educating your patient

“The best patient is an educated patient.

So now when I need to show a patient a problem, instead of taking out the camera, I reach for TRIOS®. We can see so much information because we can enlarge the scan. It’s like looking through loupes. The patient asks me, what should I do? I say let’s schedule a crown and “boom!” It’s a very convincing demonstration,” Dr. Jonathan L. Ferencz, prosthodonist, USA.
