3D Digital Impressions
How many times have you dreaded or avoided going to the dentist because of goopy, messy, gag-inducing impressions? Well, say goodbye to the goop! 3D Digital Impressions are here and are changing the game in dentistry!
No matter how necessary the impressions are, whether they are for crowns, bridges, mouthguards, Lumineer® Veneers, or Clearline Aligners, there are few who look forward to this part of their dental appointment. Dr. Brent Corlazzoli and his team are changing the way you are describing your dental experience.
We Are The Future!
Landmark Dental happens to be one of the first dental practices to introduce the TRIOS scanner into the dentistry industry. Dr. Brent Corlazzoli has paved the way for other dentists alike who are interested in the TRIOS scanner technique. He happens to be a clinical trainer and consultant for the TRIOS brand; he is often flown across the country to train other dentists and teams on how to use TRIOS. The comprehensive understanding of TRIOS that Dr. Brent Corlazzoli has allows him to communicate correctly amazing tips and tricks about TRIOS to his whole dental team (and all of his patients).
We are happy to say that many of our current patients who have received a TRIOS scan report back with positive feedback about the entire process. It’s found to be much easier and more thrilling than your average, gunky dental impressions.
Giving You The Best Of The Best
At Landmark Dental Centre, we believe that a large part of giving our patients a comfortable dental experience while providing them with the best aesthetic and functional results are utilizing the latest and most highly acclaimed dental equipment and services. Introducing digital technologies into our practice has brought about many exciting changes. We wanted a digital impression system that would create better restorative fits, improved clinical results and reduced appointment time. Some of the most groundbreaking and highly successful digital impression technology worldwide has come from TRIOS®.
What Is TRIOS?
TRIOS is a digital scanner that scans the inside of your mouth, taking almost 3000 pictures a second (as if it were shooting a video). It accurately and very precisely examines your mouth, providing an instant 3D, full-colour image on a touchscreen for your dentist to see. You, the patient, can now see the shapes, colours, and conditions of your teeth in real time. Once the digital scan is complete, it becomes a permanent record in your digital dental file! These scans can be used to create virtual mock-ups of your teeth that can be used for planning future work, such as veneers or crowns. The scans can also be used for Clearline Aligners.
What To Expect During Your Scan
We have fantastic news! The TRIOS scanner process is incredibly quick, non-invasive, and easy to do. Say goodbye to discomfort, gagging and lengthy dental impressions thanks to TRIOS. All we do is get you to open wide while we hold your cheeks and tongue out of the way so that we can perform a proper scan. Some patients even enjoy the treatment since you can watch the scan process take place right in front of your eyes; it’s like having a new form of entertainment at the dental office.
Are You An Ideal Candidate?
We are proud to say that the TRIOS scanner is for everyone. No longer is it just an option for patients that have trouble with general impressions, but it is offered to a wide range of folk. Kids, adults and elderly can all benefit from TRIOS’s profound technology. In fact, in Dr. Corlazzoli’s experience, we’ve seen that it’s the kids who enjoy the scanner the most. The children get to sit and watch a scan being done in real time, and some even find a wow factor in the fact that our scanner and screen has a similar look to a video game! TRIOS is definitely an original and exciting technology that can make any dental appointment enjoyable.
While all dental patients can benefit from the ease of digital dental impressions, this is especially good news for patients who experience negative reactions to having traditional impressions taken. Nobody likes goopy, messy sticky impression material in their mouth. Some patients experience more severe reactions, such as gagging, with bulky impression trays. In addition, digital impressions are more accurate and precise. Traditional materials are at risk of shrinkage, breakage, and inaccuracies which can prolong dental restorations and produce a less than perfect fit. With 3D Digital Impressions and virtual models, these problems can be avoided altogether.
