3D Digital Dental Impressions
Montgomery County, PA
Investing in the latest technology in dentistry is an important aspect of providing you with the absolute best dental care at Skippack Village Dentistry. Among the most innovative technologies available at Dr. Hunter’s practice is the 3Shape TRIOS® intraoral scanner, which is used to create high-quality and accurate 3D dental impressions. For you, this means less time in the dentist chair, among other benefits. For us at Skippack Village Dentistry, it means the ability formulate a personalized treatment plan with more precision and accuracy than ever before.
What to Expect with the 3Shape TRIOS® Scanner
Physical impressions require biting down on a putty-like material that often leaves a bad taste in the mouth. TRIOS completely eliminates the need for messy, uncomfortable physical impressions, a huge plus for patients with a gag reflex.
The TRIOS® scanner creates enlarged, high-quality images of your teeth and mouth within seconds.
TRIOS® captures the unique specifications of your teeth and mouth from every angle, including surface grooves, indentations and the exact shades of individual teeth thanks to color scanning.
The three-dimensional images captured by the TRIOS® scanner can be used for digital planning of treatment, from surgical guides for implant surgery to customizing the fit of dental crowns. In addition, the digital images and visual treatment plan can easily be shared with other dental professionals and dental laboratories involved in your treatment.
Enhanced dentist-patient communication
The digital images captured by the 3Shape TRIOS® scanner will instantly be available and displayed on Dr. Hunter’s computer screen. He can visually explain any dental issues present as well as treatment details.
