At Tuttle Crossing Dental Group, the health of your mouth is our top priority. For this reason, we stay up to date with the latest dental technologies. Not only do they help us, but they also help you. With these technologies, we can provide you with the best possible oral care. One of our advanced dental tools is the 3Shape TRIOS® intraoral scanner.
What is an intraoral scanner?
The 3Shape TRIOS® intraoral scanner is an electronic device that is used to take images of the interior of your mouth during your regular visits. It utilizes optical and laser scanning to take 3-dimensional pictures. With these images, the 3Shape TRIOS® allows us to provide you the best care possible.
Building Trust Through Patient Education
Not that long ago, when you would sit down in the dentist's chair, you would have no idea what is going on during your visit. You may have been talked to, or you may have sat in silence. However, you had to trust that what you were told was accurate, and that suggested treatments were the best options for you.
The Trios 3 Shape intraoral camera allows us to gain your trust through patient education. With an intraoral camera, you can see exactly what we see, projected right onto a monitor. We can capture real-time images, or we can take stills, and zoom in on certain areas. This way, we can show you what we are talking about and help you better understand why we are suggesting any special treatment plans.
Benefits of the 3Shape TRIOS®
Helping to build your trust is a huge benefit of an intraoral camera, but it is not the only one:
Monitor Progress at Home
If your condition needs to be closely monitored, we can provide you with a set of images taken with the 3Shape TRIOS® intraoral scanner to take home. These images allow you to keep an eye on suspect areas on your own. You can examine your mouth in the mirror and compare it to the image, and check for changes. With the ability to note changes as soon as they occur, you can take action right away and call us as soon as it happens. This then allows us to take immediate action, which helps to keep your oral health in the best condition possible.
With the 3Shape TRIOS® intraoral scanner, we can get you involved in your treatment, and provide you with a better understanding of your specific treatment plans. For more information on the 3Shape TRIOS® and how it can benefit you, call Tuttle Crossing Dental Group at (614) 798-0083 today.
