At Oregon City Dentistry, Dr. Johnson and the rest of our staff remain committed to providing our patients with the latest, most advanced dental care possible. Dr. Johnson’s commitment to using state-of-the-art technology in our Oregon City dental office continues with the addition of the Trios 3D Intraoral Scanner.
Since the introduction of scanning technology in dentistry in the early 90s, intraoral scanner technology has continued to make remarkable advances. Scanning technology today offers dentists a quick, convenient, and highly accurate means of determining a patient’s current oral health, and the information needed to develop an optimal treatment plan.
Better results, healthier smiles. That’s the Oregon City Dentistry difference!
How the Trios 3D Scanner Works?
The Trios 3D Scanner utilizes high-tech imaging software that enables Dr. Johnson to map out a patient’s teeth and gums. The Trios’ computer then using the data collected during a scan to create a 3D image of a patient’s mouth, providing an incredible level of detail that Dr. Johnson can then use to create a custom treatment plan designed to immediately address any oral health issues.
Just take a look at the video below to see just how quickly and conveniently the Trios 3D scanner can create a detailed copy of a patient’s smile.
Improved Comfort and Better Results
Before the use of intraoral scanners, getting an impression of a patient’s teeth was often an uncomfortable and messy process. The previous molding technique commonly required patients to bite down on a large rubber mold that was filled with a foul tasting silicone putty. Many patients would gag on the putty and experience unwanted discomfort as they waited for the mold to harden.
With the Trios Scanner, those days are now in the past. The digital wand offers improved comfort when scanning a patient’s smile, and the entire process takes only a few minutes to complete. Even more impressive, the technique even allows Dr. Johnson to immediately show a patient an impression of their teeth on a chair-side monitor. This allows Dr. Johnson to walk a patient through the current state of their oral health, what treatment options are available to correct any issues, and what they can expect their new smile to look and function like.
Improving Your Smile
The Trios 3D scanner can improve the way Dr. Johnson treats patients for a number of different restorations. The placement of dental implants, dentures, bridges, and crowns all benefit from the 3D images created by an intraoral scanner.
Instead of having to mail a package containing a mold of a patient’s teeth off to the lab, digital images can be shared with a few clicks. This means shorter wait times for patients needing a restoration, so you can get back to smiling the way you want quicker and more conveniently.
