Dr. Andres Sanchez, a board-certified periodontist in Eden Prairie, MN, now incorporates the TRIOS® 3Shape digital impression scanning technology into his treatment planning for dental implants solutions. An esteemed periodontist in the Twin Cities area, Dr. Sanchez welcomes patients in and around Eden Prairie, MN who are missing one or more teeth to receive dental implants and restore their quality of life. Dr. Sanchez leverages the TRIOS scanner to capture precise digital impressions of the mouth without the need for traditional paste impressions, increasing patient comfort and the accuracy of treatment planning and placement.

Traditionally, taking impressions of the mouth and teeth required the use of a goopy material and impression trays. Held in the mouth until the material set, these impressions were uncomfortable for patients, especially those with sensitive taste or a strong gag reflex. By introducing digital impression-taking, Dr. Sanchez eliminates many of the discomforts of the process and improves the precision and accuracy of his dental implants treatments.

The TRIOS digital impression scanner is a hand-held device used to capture high-quality digital images of the interior of the mouth, including the teeth and gum tissue. Scanning of the treatment site, or even the entire mouth, takes only a few minutes. The resulting digital images are transferred into specialized software that Dr. Sanchez uses to create a surgical guide for each patient’s unique implant surgery. By using this advanced imaging technology and implant-planning software, patients can expect:

  • Less chair time and fewer appointments
  • Precise and less-invasive dental implant placement
  • Highly accurate and long-lasting results

Dr. Sanchez and his team welcome new and existing patients to experience the benefits of this digital impression scanning technology, especially those in need of single or full arch dental implants.
