New 3Shape and Oventus Integration Gets Patients into Sleep Therapy Faster
Copenhagen, May 8, 2018 – New digital integration between Oventus and 3Shape TRIOS intraoral scanner creates a faster device-manufacturing turnaround time to get patients into sleep therapy faster.
The just-announced integration enables dental professionals using the award-winning 3Shape TRIOS intraoral scanner to send digital impressions direct to Oventus for the ordering and design of its sleep devices for snoring and sleep apnea.
3Shape TRIOS users can simply choose Oventus from the more than 45 treatment providers in the intraoral scanner’s menu to instantly cloud-send the digital impressions to Oventus.
According to Dr Chris Hart, Clinical Director and inventor of Oventus, “the digital workflow with 3Shape TRIOS increases overall efficiency in its production workflow, particularly quicker turnaround times from start to finish. This enables patients with sleep apnea to be treated more quickly, which is appreciated by patients and referring providers alike.”
The digital workflow with 3Shape TRIOS also increases accuracy, which in turn means fewer remakes and less chair time for patients, according to Oventus. Adding that the digital workflow eliminates analog-related challenges such as impressions being distorted because of gagging, tongue thrusts, saliva contamination, shipping temperature, or imprecise lab pour-ups.
“We are excited to bring another terrific treatment opportunity like Oventus to doctors and their patients. The digital workflow, because of its accuracy, speed and connectivity, makes it so much easier for professionals to provide quality care for their patients. As more and more solutions choose to connect with TRIOS, its accuracy, ease of use, and open and expanding ecosystem, make it the right choice for dental professionals,” Allan Hyldal, Vice President of 3Shape Orthodontics.
