Dr. Nimmi Holstein of Charlottenlund, Denmark, made imaging history as the first dentist to use the 3Shape TRIOS intraoral scanner as part of the Invisalign case submission process. Earlier this year, 3Shape announced that TRIOS could be used for Invisalign case submissions upon completion of the final validation process with Align Technology, makers of the Invisalign system. Holstein’s work completed the validation process.
“Having worked with the Invisalign system for a long time, it was important to me that I could continue working with Invisalign products, even after switching from polyvinyl siloxane (PVS) to a TRIOS intraoral scanner,” said Holstein. “There are many doctors out there that will be very glad to know the connection is up and running.”
To use their TRIOS scanner to send scans for Invisalign case submission, doctors must first complete 3Shape’s mandatory online training program, which is open to all Invisalign providers using TRIOS Standard, TRIOS Color, and TRIOS 3 and TRIOS 3 Mono models. Upon completion of the program, TRIOS users can send scans for Invisalign case submission free of charge.
Participants in the training program are being on-boarded in groups based on when they register on a first-come, first-served basis. Registered doctors can expect a personal invite to the program within the next 6 weeks. For more information about TRIOS and Invisalign case submissions, go to 3shape.com/invisalign.
