3Shape, a global leader in 3-D scanning technologies and CAD/CAM software for dental applications, declares “all systems go” for nationwide sales of its TRIOS solution in the United States and Canada. The official announcement was at the American Dental Association’s Annual Session in San Francisco.

Now, TRIOS resellers are busily taking orders for delivery of new systems to clinics in the United States and Canada.

Strong network of reselling partners and supporters

3Shape has signed up a wide network of prominent national and local resellers to distribute TRIOS throughout North America to dentists, dental specialists, dental schools and more. 3Shape’s strong distribution foundation has been carefully constructed to ensure optimal geographical coverage and fulfillment of 3Shape’s high standards for customer service and support of its products. TRIOS resellers are all experienced dental supplier professionals and amply trained by 3Shape to install and support TRIOS for their customers in local clinics.

Certification and full regulatory compliance in place

The TRIOS system, as a medical device, is continuously developed under the strict regulations of the FDA and ISO 13485 requirements. 3Shape has passed all final safety tests and production inspections required for authorized sales and marketing of the TRIOS system in the USA.

Closing in on complete digital workflows between clinic and lab

TRIOS enables dentists to rapidly capture the complete intraoral situation and send the 3-D model directly to the lab. It does not require pre-spraying of the teeth. The system clinically validates the impression, and includes flexible tools allowing dentists to edit their scans. Labs and dentists can communicate about the case using 3-D design visualizations, annotations and messages. The unique full-digital workflow is designed to enhance close collaboration with the lab and allow the dentist to focus more on treating patients. By utilizing the lab’s CAD/CAM expertise, along with its wide range of indications, and materials possibilities, dentists can provide their patients with more treatment options and restorations of the best possible quality and fit.

A market ripe for TRIOS unique impression technologies

In recent months, 3Shape has been touring the United States, demonstrating TRIOS for dental professionals, and the success of these live events affirms the great interest in this new digital impression solution throughout the U.S. dental market.

“We are very excited to bring state-of-the-art intraoral scanner technology to the largest dental market in the world,” said Flemming Thorup, 3Shape’s president and CEO. “The many North American labs that are using 3Shape Dental System, or those who order our TRIOS InBox separately, will be able to connect with clinics using TRIOS.

“We believe that 3Shape will soon become a strong brand in clinics — just as it has in labs,” Thorup concluded.

In order to further strengthen support and services and closely backup its partners, 3Shape recently established a new office near Los Angeles, ensuring business-hour coverage throughout the country.
