Trios Digital Impressions

TRIOS - Crow River Orthodontics in Hutchinson MN

Crow River Orthodontics is proud to offer 3Shape TRIOS® digital impressions to our patients. Unpleasant putty impressions are a thing of the past with the this digital system!

For patients who are candidates for Invisalign or Clarity aligners, an accurate impression is essential for effective treatment planning and care. The accuracy and detail of the TRIOS scan vs a putty impression is comparable to a modern-day smartphone camera versus a grainy version from a decade ago.

This scanner captures the contours of the tooth and gingival structures, producing an accurate digital orthodontic scan in minutes. This non-invasive procedure is ideal for patient comfort. No unpleasant putty material traditionally associated with taking impressions.

How TRIOS Works

The TRIOS handheld wand takes a digital, 3D image of your prepared teeth, stopping as needed. The wand is non-invasive and you can breathe and swallow as needed during the procedure. If you need to move or adjust, you can do so – the accuracy of the handheld wand is first-rate. Needing to “re-do” impressions is rare. Plus, you can look at the 3D image on the screen in real-time as the orthodontist moves the wand!
