Digital 3D Scanner

At Encompass Dental Studios, we utilize the 3Shape TRIOS digital scanner. This digital scanning technology can be used for many things, including getting impressions for crowns, bridges, partials and dentures; creating smile designs; and doing patient monitoring.

Our main use for the digital scanner at Encompass Dental Studios is for crown and bridge services. With an intraoral scan, there is no radiation or exposure; it is just high-speed video. A wand easily scans over your teeth to produce a 3D image of your mouth. The digital impression is sent to a lab to print models and fabricate the appliance.

We also utilize the scanner for patient monitoring by creating a digital study model that can be overlapped with later scans. This comparison over time allows Dr. Alexander to monitor, visualize or measure changes, making the scanner an asset in our documentation and charting.

These scanned images can also assist when communicating with specialists, if applicable. Having scan data as a baseline is technology that can help if there is a need to compare your current dental condition to where you were.

I didn't know it was possible to feel comfortable during a dental appointment. The staff are great and friendly. The doctor is very gentle and knowledgeable. They explain everything to you and that's a plus, specially in a Dental Office. I definitely recommend it!
