3Shape has announced a new TRIOS feature coming later this year or early 2018. TRIOS Patient Monitoring will enable TRIOS users 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, gum recession or tooth movement. Now with technology advancements, providing the capability to measuring wear over time, dentists can better plan and treat for what can be a chronic disease. 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 intraoral scanners from 3Shape.
