On December 11, 2019, élan, a dental practice in Tulsa, acquired a new piece of dental technology – the brand new Trios 3 Shape 4 Digital Scanner. They are the first dental practice in the state of Oklahoma to offer this revolutionary piece of technology.
The new technology offers caries detection aid to identify any possible interproximal or surface caries without radiation. It has a 30% higher battery life than past versions, allowing the dentist to examine 2 to 3 more patients without charging. The Trios 3 Shape 4 Digital Scanner uses fluorescent technology to identify possible surface caries without the need for any other scanning device. It also features a transillumination smart tip that aids with identifying interproximal caries that are normally undetectable to the eye.
“The Trios 3 Shape 4 Digital Scanner is helping us detect problems earlier and saving our patients from painful cavities down the line,” says Dr. Hodges, owner of élan.
élan can also use the technology with several different excitement apps for patients to monitor a patient’s smile over time, design new photorealistic results possible with different treatments in addition to a treatment simulator that shows the expected results from treatments. The technology also offers other apps to design and plan treatments for patients.
élan is very excited to offer this new technology to their patients. If you would like to learn more about the Trios 3 Shape 4 Digital Scanner, you can contact Dr. Hodges at élan by calling (918) 528-3330 or visiting their contact page.
