The 3Shape TRIOS® is an intra-oral 3D scanner that enables the orthodontist to take a 3D digital scan of the patient’s teeth and bite, make adjustments in real time, and transmit the file for processing.
Before, with traditional impressions and plaster models, this process was impossible.
Now, with a 3D model of a patient’s teeth and bite, the orthodontist can manipulate the teeth in computer software and apply gradual changes to the model.
This helps guide treatment and makes the treatment information easy to understand for the patient or parent.
This scan can easily be converted into an STL which are used for the manufacture of braces such as WIN lingual braces and Invisalign clear aligners.
