TRIOS 4 Wired and wireless in one
Wired and wireless in one

Enjoy unrestricted wireless scanning. Or just plug in. Two-in-one scanning combines the freedom of wireless dentistry with the reassurance of a cord. All with the convenience of a scanner that keeps on going thanks to a leap in battery time.

A revolution in tip technology

The tip of the scanner is where most of the magic happens. It's where your impression data is captured, so it needs to be rock-solid. Revolutionizing this part of the scanner is what we focused on for our fourth generation scanner.

Scan-ready in seconds
Imagine you don’t need to wait for your scanner to be ready to use. With the use of InstantHeat technology, our fourth-generation scanner tips ensure the mirror inside the tip heats quickly, and no fog (caused by the patient’s breath) will compromise your scan accuracy.
Built-in counter
TRIOS 4 tips come with a built-in counter: it counts the number of times your scanner has been autoclaved, so you know when it’s time to buy new tips. Also, it will let you know when it’s time for a re-calibration, so that your tip is always working at its best capacity.

Even better treatment options

Detect wear and tear

The naked eye can see a lot. But it can’t remember the patient situation months or years ago. TRIOS Patient Monitoring software helps you with that: it lets you compare and track so you - and your patient - can see what’s happening on screen. Conveying potential issues and making patients understand what needs to be done will never be the same again.

Detect surface caries with
fluorescent light

For preventative care, you need preventative insights. TRIOS 4 gives you these insights by using a combination of two light sources. LED light captures color and surface, and fluorescent light illustrates bacteria. Combining those two in one scan shows you and your patient where caries is developing, so you can engage in dialogue about preventing further problems.

How patient monitoring works



We think preventative care is the best kind of dental care. To get the most out of your scanner, we recommend:

  • Scanning every patient every time, so you can visualize and monitor changes over time.
  • Using the TRIOS Patient Monitoring app each time your patient is in the chair, to help you visualize, inspect and compare.
  • Using the visuals from our software to empower your patients with a better understanding of the need for intervention.
