3Shape Will Reveal the Ortho System™ and TRIOS® at the AAO this Weekend in Honolulu

Posted on May 3, 2012

3Shape will present its Ortho System™ and TRIOS®, its new intra-oral digital impression solution, at the American Association of Orthodontists Annual Session held in Honolulu, Hawaii May 4-8, 2012.

3Shape Ortho System™ is a complete CAD/CAM solution for orthodontics and brings together accurate 3D scanning, intuitive treatment planning and analysis, efficient patient management, communication tools, and appliance design, all providing streamlined workflows that increase efficiency and productivity.  Some of the features are:

  • Link between orthodontic clinics and laboratories—The clinic can take a digital impression with TRIOS and immediately perform treatment planning with OrthoAnalyzer™, while the laboratory will load the case into 3Shape’s Appliance Designer™ to design the customized product. Additionally, laboratories can receive digital impressions directly from the clinic and immediately send feedback or questions.

  • OrthoAnalyzer™—Provides complete insight into patient cases by simulating treatment plans and applying familiar analyses in a highly efficient and systematic manner.

  • Appliance Designer™—Users can design modified study models or appliances for output using all types of 3D driven machines and materials. Easily create nightguards, retainers, splints, surgical bites and much more.

  • Open Formats—The Ortho System allows users to create high quality digital study models and appliances in the standard STL file format, allowing labs and practices to choose their service partners.

3Shape will also be showcasing its TRIOS digital-impression solution, including a wide range of new features. TRIOS enables dentists to rapidly capture the complete intraoral situation and send the 3D model directly to the laboratory Unlike many other scanners, 3Shape’s TRIOS does not require pre-spraying of the teeth. The system clinically validates the impression and includes flexible tools allowing dentists to edit their scans, and even delete-and-rescan’ specific areas where needed. Some Key Features are:

  • Ultra Fast Optical Sectioning™ technology for high speed

  • Spray-free for optimal accuracy and patient comfort

  • Accurate scanning with up to 1000 3D pictures, for true geometries

  • Autoclavable scanner tip with easy to flip tip for scanning upper and lower jaw
