Part what makes Dr. Bowyer one of the premier dentists top in the Vancouver, Washington area is the office’s commitment to investing in the patient experience. The newest addition Dr. Bowyer and his office have made is the purchase of the 3Shape TRIOS 4 IntraOral Scanner, a new digital dentistry tool that allows impressions and scans to be taken in a more accurate and more comfortable manner.
3Shape TRIOS 4 IntraOral Scanner
This new scanner is ready to be used by Dr. Bowyer and his team to provide you the best dental care possible. Expect to see the scanner available when discussing reconstructive and/or restorative dental procedures, as well as to be used in your preventative care.
The TRIOS scanner allows Dr. Bowyer and his team to take impressions of your mouth without the messy and uncomfortable process of taking a physical impression. Not only does this make the process of impressions more comfortable for patients, but the scanners produces an impression that is also more reliable than the traditional process of using bad-tasting putty to create the mold. Once the impression is completed, followup appointments can be more quickly scheduled as the mold does not need to be sent away for custom work to be completed. Instead, the impressions and data from the scanner is immediately available for digital delivery. This means that procedures take less overall time, and patients won’t have to wait as long for the healthier and happier smile that they are seeking.
Digital Preventative Dentistry:
The TRIOS 4 scanner has state-of-the-art technology that allows Dr. Bowyer to use the scanner as a diagnostic tool. The TRIOS is able to store and compare images of patient’s teeth overtime so Dr. Bowyer can identify potential issues sooner. The scanner is also able to produce images to clearly show potential red flags that need to be addressed, so patients can be better in charge of their own dental health and understand the work that is being recommended to them. With the addition of this scanner to Dr. Bowyer’s office, both patient and dentist will be better informed, and will be able to preventatively address dental issues.
