Intelligent scanning

ScanAssist Engine

We worked hard on making scanning even simpler. At the heart of TRIOS 5 is our ScanAssist engine.

Its intelligent alignment technology for building up a 3D model results in precision scans, effortlessly and efficiently. Every time. So you can concentrate on providing the excellent care that makes your patients smile.

About the technology



digital representation of patient’s oral health

Our new scan engine avoids stitching errors by reconstructing and building up the 3D model while scanning.

Today, most intraoral scanner brands require you to use a scan strategy or protocol in order to ensure good data collection. You need, for example, to start with the molar occlusal surface because it helps you capture the right level of detail. Not following the scan strategy could lead to difficulties in properly stitching the 3D model together. This might result in the scan needing to be redone. We rebuilt our entire scan engine to remove that inconvenience.

Now, you can scan your patients in any direction you want and create a scan path that works best for you.

We care about a good scan experience. A few years ago, we automated the process for cleaning up the scan with the help of artificial intelligence (AI). With our new scan engine, we bring effortless scanning to a new level. ScanAssist ensures the 3D scan model that you generate is continuously updated with the latest information. As a result, alignment of the scan data will be close to perfect, and you will end up with a remarkably high-quality scan, no matter your level of experience with scanning.

You'll create great scans, effortlessly.


Effortless scanning

With five generations of experience up our sleeve, we know a thing or two about what makes or breaks a dental scan experience. With TRIOS 5, we've made scanning even smoother, faster and easier.

Calibration free

The scanner is calibration free, meaning you don’t need to calibrate after a certain number of scans. It's always ready to use!

LED to indicate readiness

A LED ring on the scanner indicates the status of the scanner: it tells you when it's connected, low on battery, or the tip is ready, for example. You'll know if you're scan-ready with just a glance.

Smart haptic feedback

Switching focus between patient and screen can be distracting. That’s why the scanner uses haptics – a subtle vibration – to give you feedback.

Remote control button

Use your scanner as a remote control. Point to the screen and use the button to select your next step or rotate the 3D model. There’s no longer the need to touch (and clean) the mouse.

Smart power management

Scan up to 33 patients per battery*

When you don't use the scanner, it goes into sleep mode to save battery. It then reactivates when you pick it up again. Simply powerful.

*Data on file: test results and range

Battery charger

The charger has two slots. The third battery can stay inside the scanner for an entire day of scanning.

Ergonomic scanning

TRIOS 5 is our smallest and lightest scanner to date. Even better, this sleek, pen-grip scanner is perfectly balanced and made to fit comfortably in every hand. Including yours. It's the scanner that feels just right.

Hygienic scanning

TRIOS 5 sets a new standard for patient protection and infection control. We like to call it 'hygienic by design'. It’s easy to clean because it hardly has any openings or crevices. But you don't need to take our word for it: TRIOS 5 is FDA cleared, too. Let's take a look at what we did.

Minimize patient cross-contamination

An ultra-thin, snug and near-invisible TRIOS sleeve minimizes the risk of patient cross-contamination. It's one-time use – you put it on, scan and take it off.
Inside the scanner, you'll find a sealed mirror. No dust or dirt can enter and affect the optics performance of the scanner.

Closed autoclavable tip

Another innovation to help minimize patient cross-contamination in between visits is the closed, autoclavable tip. The window inside it is made of sapphire glass. This material is scratch-free and heats up super-fast – ensuring your tip is scan-ready in seconds.

NEW: TRIOS Ready Tip

As an alternative to the autoclavable tip, we’ve designed the TRIOS Ready Tip. It’s for dentists and clinic staff who value the convenience of having a new tip always ready to scan your patients. Simply open the wrapping, attach a TRIOS Ready Tip to your TRIOS 5 and you’re all set. One tip per patient means additional patient safety knowing you’re minimizing the risk of patient cross-contamination.

What others say about TRIOS 5

Ergonomically, the TRIOS 5 is brilliant, because it's such a small scanner and the patients find it a lot more comfortable. With the LED and haptic feedback, I can concentrate on TRIOS giving me the data I need.

Dr. Douglas Watt

about ergonomics

With ScanAssist, the new scan engine, we get improved stitching together of the scan data, so that even for new users where the scan protocol might not be ideal, we’ll still get a really good quality scan.

Dr. Anthony Mak

about effortless scanning

In my opinion, the design could not be more conducive for infection control. It’s small: the batteries don’t have those little ridges in them. There’s a barrier that fits nicely over the scanner. The tip is closed. It’s a win-win all around.
