3D DIGITAL IMAGING


A large part of giving our patients a comfortable dental experience while providing them the best aesthetic and functional results, is 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?

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 touch screen 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” tooth alignment system. (a Canadian-made brand made at a lab in Vancouver, BC). 

WHAT IS THE PROCESS LIKE?

What is the process like?

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. 

WHO IS THE IDEAL CANDIDATE?

Who is the 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.

WHY WOULD I NEED A TRIOS SCAN?

Why would I need a TRIOS scan?

Those who might need a TRIOS scan could be in the process of considering dental implants, crowns, ClearLine, and more… TRIOS becomes a helpful tool in treatment planning and offering the patient a faster treatment time; since the scan is digital and can be sent to labs across the world, the wait time for a visual mock-up or wax up decreases immensely. 

However, if you are not in need of any dental or orthodontic treatments, a TRIOS scan is also valuable for monitoring/watching a potential dental problem. It makes it easier for us to see what is going on in your mouth and identify what we might want to keep an eye on in the future.

ANYTHING ELSE I SHOULD KNOW?

Is there anything else I need to know?

Landmark Dental happens to be one of the first dental centres 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. But since we already know how our current patients feel, we now would like to know how you feel…

NO MORE GOOP!

Landmark Dental Centre was one of the first offices in Kelowna to use 3D Digital Impressions for higher quality and more comfortable dental treatments.

TRIOS® is spray-and-powder-free for optimal accuracy and patient comfort. The scanner provides complete motion and positioning freedom and the large touch screen shows live visualization as you scan. The dentist can edit scans and easily rescan specific areas instead of starting over when initial results show unwanted details. This system creates a highly accurate and aesthetic product with reduced time in a very comfortable environment for our patients. For more information please contact us.
