Revolutionising Dental Impressions: A Closer Look at City Smiles’ TRIOS® Digital Impression System

City Smiles is dedicated to providing patients with the latest advancements in dental technology to ensure a comfortable and efficient dental experience. One such innovation is the TRIOS® Digital Impression System, a state-of-the-art intraoral scanner that is revolutionising the way dental impressions are taken. Let’s explore how this cutting-edge technology is transforming the dental experience at City Smiles.

The Evolution of Dental Impressions

Traditional dental impressions involve the use of messy and often uncomfortable impression materials. Patients would have to bite down on a tray filled with putty-like substances, which could be a challenging experience for many. These impressions were then sent to a dental laboratory for the fabrication of crowns, bridges, or other dental restorations. However, with the advent of digital technology, this process has been streamlined and significantly improved.

How Does the TRIOS® Digital Impression System Work?

The TRIOS® Digital Impression System is an intraoral scanner that uses high-resolution cameras to capture detailed images of the teeth and gums. The scanner is connected to a computer, allowing the dentist to view the images in real time. The scanner uses LED lights and optical scanning technology to capture precise 3D images of the patient’s oral structures. These images are then used to create digital impressions that can be sent electronically to a dental laboratory for the fabrication of restorations.

Benefits of the TRIOS® Digital Impression System

The TRIOS® Digital Impression System offers numerous benefits over traditional impression methods. One of the most significant advantages is the elimination of messy and uncomfortable impression materials. Patients no longer have to endure the unpleasant taste and sensation of traditional impressions, making the dental experience more comfortable and enjoyable. Additionally, digital impressions are more accurate than traditional impressions, leading to better-fitting restorations and improved treatment outcomes.

Improved Patient Experience

The use of the TRIOS® Digital Impression System has greatly improved the patient experience at City Smiles. Patients no longer have to deal with the discomfort and inconvenience of traditional impressions, and the digital scanning process is quick, easy, and painless. Patients can also see the digital impressions in real time, allowing them to better understand their treatment plan and the results they can expect.

Enhanced Treatment Planning

The high-resolution images captured by the TRIOS® Digital Impression System allow dentists at City Smiles to plan treatments with unprecedented precision. Dentists can manipulate the digital impressions to simulate the results of various treatments, allowing patients to see the potential outcomes before treatment begins. This helps patients make informed decisions about their dental care and ensures that treatments are tailored to their individual needs.

The TRIOS® Digital Impression System is revolutionising the way dental impressions are taken, leading to a more comfortable and efficient dental experience for patients at City Smiles. By embracing this cutting-edge technology, City Smiles can provide patients with superior care and achieve exceptional treatment outcomes. As technology continues to advance, City Smiles remains committed to staying at the forefront of dental innovation to ensure that patients receive the best possible care.
