OraMetrix, Richardson, Tex, has certified the TRIOS® imaging system from Copenhagen, Denmark-based 3Shape for use with suresmile digital orthodontics. As suresmile is designed to enable orthodontists to visualize and simulate multiple diagnostic set-ups and design archwires accurate to .1 mm, the accuracy of the patient scans plays a critical role in maximizing the effectiveness of the system.

“The TRIOS provides an excellent option for scan data acquisition in conjunction with suresmile custom treatment,” said Phil Getto, chief technology officer for OraMetrix. “suresmile is committed to an open architecture for imaging technologies to provide our customers with choices to best suit their needs.”

“3Shape is always seeking new ways to increase the value of TRIOS for our customers,” says Allan Junge Hyldal, director for the 3Shape Orthodontics Business Unit. “We are very happy that this collaboration between suresmile and 3Shape makes it possible for doctors to benefit from the unique strengths of our respective products and companies.”
