3Shape designed its TRIOS 3 Mono as an entry-level version of its TRIOS 3 intraoral scanner. It provides the same accuracy, speed, and ease of use as all other TRIOS intraoral scanners, but it takes digital impressions without color, according to the company. It also costs nearly 40% less than TRIOS 3 color models.
Additionally, 3Shape states that the TRIOS 3 Mono supports the widest range of indications while delivering texture and stone model scans plus HD photos. Doctors can use it to offer same-day dentistry using the optional 3Shape practice lab.
The TRIOS 3 Mono is upgradable to a color model at any time as well. The cost of the upgrade is the price difference between the 2 scanners and a service fee. The upgrade includes 3Shape’s RealColor scanning, digital shade measurement, and an integrated intraoral camera.
“Doctors are definitely looking to go digital with their dentistry. There are just too many documented advantages to ignore. To make the jump easier, we created an intraoral scanner they can start and keep growing with, one that doesn’t compromise speed and accuracy or use powder,” said Flemming Thorup, president and CEO of 3Shape.
