COLOGNE, Germany: This morning, Danish manufacturer 3Shape hosted its press event at the opening of the International Dental Show (IDS) in Cologne. One of the innovative digital products for dental practices and laboratories the company introduced was TRIOS 3, a significantly smaller, lighter and faster version of its award-winning intra-oral scanner and digital impression solution.

“TRIOS 3 is our new three-in-one digital impression solution,” said Tais Clausen, co-founder of 3Shape. The device is the third generation of 3Shape’s intra-oral colour scanner and digital impression solution. It is now available in pen grip, handle grip and chair-mounted versions. The new TRIOS 3 also features an intra-oral camera integrated with the high-speed 3-D intra-oral colour scanner, which takes up to 3,000 images per minute, as well as a smaller and rounded scan tip for enhanced patient comfort. High-definition photographs taken with the camera enable dentists to enhance significant details and accurately set the margin line. They can also use the camera to take live videos and photographs to discuss treatment options with patients.

Clausen also pointed out that the scanner, which received the “Best of Class” Technology Award in 2014 for the second consecutive year, supports a wide range of dental indications—from implant bridges to removable partials—to give patients more treatment options and dentists greater opportunity for quicker return on investment.

According to Rune Fisker, Vice-President of Product Strategy at 3Shape, the introduction of the new scanner version was also driven by the aim to reduce the price of the product in order to make it accessible to a greater number of dental professionals.

“Dentists like to work differently. That’s why we strive to provide as many options as possible: like our flexible TRIOS hardware configurations and open software solutions. It should be up to you to decide on the equipment you want to use. TRIOS and our other 3Shape dental solutions support your freedom to choose by being open and constantly evolving through software updates. And because of that, they are future-proof. With 3Shape, your solutions literally get better with age, instead of outdated,” said 3Shape President and CEO Flemming Thorup.

Attendees of IDS are invited to join TRIOS live demonstrations at 3Shape’s booth (N101/N090) in Hall 4.2.
