Trios by 3Shape is new technology allowing us to 3D image and scan patients teeth, without the mess of traditional impressions, aligners can be custom fabricated providing a reduced cost to the patient. The Trios scans the teeth and is uploaded to 3Shape software program where the Doctor can design the aligners to correct the bite and straighten the patients teeth. That information will be sent to our 3D printer, Form 2 SLA 3D printer, which will print out the models used to make the aligners in our lab. They are very comfortable and easy to use.
Invisalign is a new system of straightening teeth without the use of conventional braces. A series of clear plastic aligners are utilized to create tooth movement. Moving teeth with removable aligners is not new. However, the computer program, which can generate a series of aligners with small changes is the new part. Invisalign is recommended for orthodontic situations with mild to moderate spacing or crowding. They are virtually undetectable, easy to use and comfortable to wear.
