3D Intraoral Scans in Ottawa, ON
Not long ago, the only way to get dental impressions was through manual and outdated techniques that included messy dental impression material. While manual dental impressions serve their purpose, the dental impression material can feel uncomfortable and unpleasant to some patients. What’s more, it’s not always possible to take accurate and precise impressions, resulting in ill-fitting restorations. Thanks to advancements in dental technology, the process of obtaining dental impressions has changed.
In particular, the 3Shape TRIOS® intraoral scanner has changed the way we deliver our dental care services. Here at Albert Street Dentistry, we love to invest in technology that supports our dentist’s extensive expertise. We have adopted digital dental imaging to improve our patients’ experience and enhance the treatment planning process.

How the 3Shape TRIOS Works
The 3Shape TRIOS is a handheld scanner that fits comfortably in all mouths, including the small-sized ones. Our dentist in Ottawa, ON, will start by evaluating your oral health via visual inspection and other techniques. Next, the dentist uses the 3Shape TRIOS scanner to obtain in-depth insights into your dental health and take digital dental impressions. The process is comfortable and straightforward, and usually over within minutes.
We use these highly accurate dental impressions to inform the creation of various dental restorations, including dentures, dental crowns, dental bridges, and implants.
During the scanning process, you get to view your oral cavity and the impressions on a computer screen or monitor. This way, you also get a clear, unobstructed view of your oral health.
