You may not know but at Fresh Smiles we incorporated our first iTero 3D Scanner into our practice back in early 2012. We have now upgraded to the 3Shape TRIOS 3 intraoral scanner, we wanted a machine that could do full-arch impressions in a short amount of time without any powders or materials.
With this digital scanner we are able to visualize and take digital impressions of the teeth and soft tissue. It gives us the ability to take, high-resolution pictures of our patients that can then be sent instantly to our lab.
The main benefit for our patients is speed. There is almost no waiting time for the digital impression and we can start working with our patients once we receive the digital impressions on our computers. Another great benefit is that by using the Trios scanner there is no need for our patients to put up with the messy play dough like material to take impressions.
We have also just purchased a 3D Printer, the revolutionary Stratasys Mojo machine. Which now works in partnership with the TRIOS intraoral scanner to create 3D modelling for a range of dental appliances and models for our patients. We have created a video that shows this amazing machine in action!
