3Shape has announced a new TRIOS feature coming later this year. TRIOS patient monitoring will enable TRIOS customers to scan any patient’s teeth and do a comparative analysis over time. For instance, a scan today and a second scan two years from now. The dentist will easily be able to overlay the two scans and measure tooth wear or gum recession. As you know, tooth wear is either pathologic or physiologic. Currently tooth wear is difficult to treat as it can not be measured. Now with technology advancements, measuring wear over time dentists can better treat this sometimes chronic problem. First determining if the problem is caused from attrition, abrasion or erosion, patients may undergo splint therapy or even full mouth reconstructions. At last, a viable ROI on intra oral scanners from 3Shape.
