IntraOral Scanner

Introducing the 3Shape Trios 3 IntraOral Scanner

3Shape Trios 3 IntraOral Scanner

We know that having impressions taken of your teeth with the traditional moulds can be an uncomfortable experience for patients. Impressions are needed to provide us with accurate measurements of your teeth if you are having cosmetic dental treatments such as crowns, veneers, inlays and dental implants. At Stella Maris Dental, an award-winning dental practice near Birmingham, we have said goodbye to patient discomfort and have welcomed a state-of-the-art IntraOral Scanner.

What Is An IntraOral Scanner?

The 3Shape Trios 3 IntraOral Scanner is the latest development in digital dentistry. This digital scanner uses cutting-edge technology for 3D dental impressions to be taken quickly, easily and comfortably. Your dentist will be able to design your new smile on screen, right in front of your eyes. Transform your smile with confidence, knowing exactly what your finished results will be.

Advantages of the IntraOral Scanner

Patient Comfort

The biggest advantage of digital scanners is the improvement in patient comfort. The cordless scanner means for quick, easy and comfortable impression taking, for both patient and dentist. Say goodbye to the uncomfortable experience of having traditional impressions taken.

Saves Time

Digital scanners save time. Taking traditional impressions takes a significant amount of time as the material used has to be moulded in your mouth, and then it has to stay in your mouth for several minutes for it to set. The digital scanner is quick, and you don’t have to wait for the impression to set.

High accuracy

The IntraOral Scanner provides exceptionally high accuracy with the digital impressions it creates. The dentist will scan your upper jaw, lower jaw and even your bite. With traditional impressions, there are several opportunities for your moulds to be slightly inaccurate - this is avoided with digital scanning technologies.

View Results Instantly

Using an IntraOral scanner gives you the opportunity to view your smile digitally on screen in the same appointment. Your dentist can then use the technology to build a digital representation of what your smile will look like after the treatment process.

Frequently Asked Questions
