Dr. Simon Kold, from Herning Implant Center, has worked with the 3Shape TRIOS scanner since 2011, and for him, there can be no going back to traditional impression taking. Dr. Kold believes that his preparations and final results have improved significantly since he started working with TRIOS. The technology has taken his business to new heights. “Intraoral scanning helps me give patients better dental treatment.” says Dr. Kold dental instruments.
What made you move from traditional impression taking to digital impressioning?
Our clinic has been working with guided implant surgery since 2005. With the emergence of new technologies, we saw potential combining digital impressions with CBCT scans to ensure accurate and esthetic implant treatment implant machine.
What made TRIOS stand out for you?
With other intraoral scanners, I needed to keep my hand completely steady while scanning. TRIOS lets you move more naturally. You can stop and start scanning again, and even rescan selected areas and merge them into the complete impression picture.
What about digital impressions in terms of accuracy dental file?
Using the TRIOS system, I successfully completed an upper-jaw reconstruction using 14 new teeth – all based on digital impressions. Scanning and the workflow with the laboratory functioned smoothly, and during seating, all 14 teeth slid in without any adjustments.
Was it easy for your clinic to adapt to the new technology?
One thing that surprised me was how excited everybody was about working with the new technology. Installing and using the digital impression system has made us better and is still moving our business and careers in new directions. The technology catches the attention of patients, as well. I think they like the idea of being treated in a top-notch, modern facility
with the best equipment.
