Take your dentistry beyond treatment

Our intraoral scanning solutions allow you to take your dentistry beyond. The new 3Shape TRIOS® 4 combines our established superior scanning technology with groundbreaking caries diagnostic aid technology* for both surface and interproximal caries. No additional scanning device needed.


Caries diagnostic aid




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.


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 eye, without emitting radiation, and is the first launch within 3Shape’s new smart tip platform.
