Digital Impressions: TRIOS Handheld 3-D Scanner
The new color wireless TRIOS handheld 3D scanner allows for more efficient, clean, and precise digital impressions. This state-of-the art scanner safely takes thousands of images per minute. There, allowing Dr. Govani to best acquire important imaging and information needed to provide the highest standard of care possible.
Digital impressions use safe picture technology to capture a detailed 3D color image of a patient’s entire smile in as little as 30 seconds without the traditional impression material. Therefore, reducing saliva flow, risk of coughing and much less aerosols. Once the ‘scan’ is complete, it allows Dr. Govani and her lab team to be provided with an accurate 3D representation of the patient’s mouth.
The TRIOS handheld 3D scanner is beneficial for patients who may be anxious or experience nervousness or discomfort with the taste and texture of traditional impression material. Most importantly, it takes less time than ever before. The digital impression experience allows for less gagging and discomfort, allowing a more pleasant dental experience. With the rapid image quality visits are shorter and less frequent due to the accuracy.

All of the operatories at Govani Dental are equipped with state-of-the-art intra-oral cameras. An intra-oral camera allows us to give our patients a ‘tour’ of their mouth in real time. You’ll be able to see what we see.
The intra-oral camera is a great tool for Dr. Govani and her team to educate patient about their mouth. The pictures can show patients tooth decay, cracked teeth and provide education to all our patients. The camera takes pictures, which can be brought up on the monitor to show our patients any discrepancies in their teeth or gums. In addition, the images taken can be used to strengthen and offer full transparency with insurance claims.
Dental x-rays are an essential preventative and diagnostic tool that provides valuable information not visible during a regular dental exam. We use digital technology for single films, Panorex and Cone Beam (CBCT) imaging, which allows us to offer the best image quality. In addition, this allows with the least radiation possible and no chemicals utilized. We pride ourselves in providing the highest standard of care possible.
Benefits of digital x ray are the reduction of exposure time, less radiation and less aerosols, thereby reducing patient risk. Having a digital experience provides our patients a more time efficient visit. Because images are instant, instead of having to wait for developing. Patients appreciate they can see their images chair side and be engaged in findings and treatment recommendations.
