3Shape_TRIOS3Basic3Shape, Copenhagen, Denmark, announced the release of an entry-level version of the 3Shape TRIOS intraoral scanner: TRIOS 3 Basic.

TRIOS 3 Basic features the same core scanning technology as in all TRIOS models, and comes with unique-to-TRIOS features like AI Scan, real colors and shade measurement; however, it does not include TRIOS excitement apps like TRIOS Patient Monitoring, TRIOS Treatment Simulator and Smile Design or restorative and orthodontic software. These apps are intended to help professionals go beyond scanning and do much more with their digital impressions, according to the company.

TRIOS 3 Basic can be upgraded to a TRIOS 3 model that includes the TRIOS excitement apps. Additional restorative and orthodontic software is purchased separately.

Like all TRIOS models, TRIOS 3 Basic features a lightweight scanner handle, ultrafast speed scanning and documented accuracy for indications from fully edentulous and implant scanning to orthodontics, according to the company.

TRIOS 3 Basic is available as a wired, pen-grip model. 3Shape recommended the introduction price for the 3Shape TRIOS 3 Basic is $23,500.

All 3Shape TRIOS intraoral scanners and software, including 3Shape Studio apps, are open solutions.
