  • Treatment provider: Dr. Thomas Faber
  • Solutions used: 3Shape TRIOS intraoral scanner
  • Dr. Faber uses a 3Shape TRIOS intraoral scanner to create a model of existing denture


  • Existing denture used to create impression tray. 3D printed copy of existing denture used as special impression tray and to record the bite.

  • Chair-time saved. Chair-time is saved due to the precise fit of the ‘special tray’ with little or no adjustments required.

  • Using printed models. The precise fit of the 3D-printed model of the opposite teeth is verified and confirms the precision of the scanned and printed model.

  • Creating a precise copy denture. Using the digital workflow developed by Dr. Faber, a 1:1 digital copy of the existing denture is created at the beginning of the workflow to simplify the procedure.
