07 Mar Benefits of the 3Shape Trios Scanner
We invested in a 3Shape Trios scanner last year to assist in making crowns, bridges and other appliances for our patients. The Trios is a digital intraoral scanner that allows us to send detailed images directly to a local dental lab to fabricate crowns and bridges for our patients.
By utilizing the scanner to take digital images, we can get the lab the information they need with patients not having a mouth full of the messy, uncomfortable impression material.
When asked why he prefers to utilize a dental lab to make his crowns and bridges, Dr. Johnson says that the dental lab makes them by hand and the material is stronger than what is available for other options such as in-office “same-day” crowns.
