ANDOVER, Mass. (PRWEB) January 24, 2018
Thanks to a global distribution agreement between Straumann and 3Shape, dental professionals across the United States and Canada can now purchase TRIOS 3 intraoral scanning solutions directly from Straumann.
Intraoral scanning is a convenient modern alternative to unpleasant conventional methods of taking impressions of the patient’s teeth. 3Shape’s TRIOS® 3 range of intraoral scanners is widely recognized as industry-leading technology, offering accurate, ultra-fast, powderless scanning. In addition to the full-color package, which includes digital shade measurement and an integrated intraoral camera, an upgradable lower-priced monochrome version is also available.
The combination of 3Shape TRIOS 3 and Straumann’s compact C series chairside mill enables the Straumann Group to offer a top quality chairside solution for producing dental prosthetics in the practice. In addition, the combination of the TRIOS 3 intraoral scanner and the integration with ClearCorrect orthodontic solutions, amplify the complete range of Digital Solutions that Straumann offers to dental professionals.
Guillaume Daniellot, Executive Vice President of Straumann North America, commented: “TRIOS 3 is a fantastic addition to our portfolio of integrated solutions, which include leading chairside and lab-based scanning and milling technology, 3D printing, central milling, and ClearCorrect orthodontic solutions – all with interconnected software platforms, validated workflows, and materials, including our own new glass ceramic ‘n!ce’. All of this together with service support, implants and biomaterials is now conveniently available from a single source."
3Shape TRIOS 3 complements Straumann’s current range of CARES lab and intraoral scanners and software solutions, which are developed, and co-marketed by the Group’s Dental Wings brand. They offer dental professionals an open platform with connectivity and a seamless, validated workflow – from planning the surgery to producing the final restoration.
