3Shape’s new TRIOS 4 redefines intraoral scanning with dual caries diagnostic aid technology
Copenhagen, March 12, 2019 – 3Shape announces TRIOS 4, the most powerful scanning solution to date in the company’s award-winning portfolio of intraoral scanners.
The fourth generation TRIOS 4 is the world’s first intraoral scanner with timely detection of both possible surface and interproximal caries in a single scanner.
Caries diagnostic aid for surface caries1
TRIOS 4 has built-in fluorescent technology that aids in the identification of possible caries. Using TRIOS 4, dental professionals can now be aided in the early-detection of surface caries, without the need for an additional scanning device.
Caries diagnostic aid for Interproximal caries2
TRIOS 4 will also feature a dedicated transillumination smart tip later this year. The smart tip will aid in the identification of possible interproximal caries undetectable to the eye, without emitting radiation, and is the first launch within 3Shape’s new ‘Smart Tip’ platform.
“3Shape TRIOS has firmly established itself as the industry’s best-in-class scanning technology within restoration and orthodontics. Now, by developing digital assistance for both surface and interproximal caries, TRIOS 4 has the power to lead the way in aiding diagnostic scanning,” says leading New York Prosthodontist, Dr. Jonathan L. Ferencz.
The new generation of smart tips feature instant-heat technology for optimized scanning. In addition to enabling dental professional to be scan-ready in seconds, TRIOS 4 instant-heat tips also serve to increase scanner battery life by 30%. The time-saving combination of instant-heat technology and increased battery life can enable doctors to scan 2-3 times as many patients per battery.
TRIOS Patient Monitoring
The power of TRIOS 4 is further enhanced with TRIOS Patient Monitoring, software that enables doctors to compare scans and track changes in teeth over time to gain great preventive insights.
“TRIOS 4 represents an opportunity for doctors to provide less reactive and more proactive care. The paradigm shift towards preventive care in dentistry is on a very important trajectory, and we are excited about the impact that TRIOS 4’s diagnostic aiding and monitoring tools will have in helping doctors achieve their preventive care goals,” says Tais Clausen, 3Shape Co-CEO and Co-founder.
Same great form with more function
TRIOS 4 provides groundbreaking caries innovation with no compromise to the great wireless ergonomics dentist have come to expect from the TRIOS 3 intraoral scanner, and no increase in the size or weight of the scanning unit.

TRIOS 4 is the latest addition to 3Shape’s portfolio of scanning solutions that equip doctors to always Go Beyond on their digital journey, and always deliver superior patient care.
With an expanded selection of hardware and software options, TRIOS enables dental professionals to ‘Go Beyond ANALOG’ with superior scanning technology, ‘Go Beyond SCANNING’ with patient excitement apps and in-house production options, and now even ‘Go Beyond TREATMENT’ with monitoring and diagnostic aiding tools to support preventive care.
