3Shape TRIOS 4 combines our superior scanning technology with groundbreaking caries detection aid technology for both surface and interproximal caries. Trios 4 can be operated with a cable or wirelessly. The versions available are the pod version using a laptop or a cart version using the Move + trio.

3Shape TRIOS 4 is the most powerful 3Shape intraoral scanner to date and the world’s first intraoral scanner that aids the detection of both possible surface* and interproximal* caries without the need for an additional scanning device. TRIOS 4 comes with a new generation of tips with instant-heat technology so they are scan-ready in seconds, enabling 30% additional battery life.

Two types of TRIOS 4 smart extensions:

  • Smart attachments for 3D color scanning and surface caries detection (fluorescence scanning)
  • Smart IR (infrared) transillumination imaging for interproximal caries.



The most powerful 3Shape intraoral scanner to date is here with a powerful 8D imaging system. The TRIOS 4 now has the power to detect surface caries with fluorescent scans and interproximal caries with infrared scans – with no radiation. What’s more instant heat smart tips ensure you always scan ready in less than 40 seconds, giving an additional 30% battery life and the ability to scan 2/3 times as many patients per battery.

The 3Shape TRIOS 4 is a top-tier intraoral scanner designed to provide dental professionals with high precision, speed, and a range of advanced features. Here’s a comprehensive overview of why dentists should consider using the TRIOS 4, along with its pros and cons.

Take your dentistry beyond treatment

Our intraoral scanning solutions allow you to take your dentistry beyond. The new 3Shape TRIOS 4 combines our established superior scanning technology with groundbreaking caries diagnostic aid technology* for both surface and interproximal caries. No additional scanning device needed.




TRIOS 4 has built-in fluorescent technology that aids in the identification of possible caries. Using TRIOS 4, dental professionals can now be aided in the early detection of surface caries, without the need for an additional scanning device.


TRIOS 4 will also feature a dedicated transillumination smart tip later this year. The smart tip will aid in the identification of possible interproximal caries undetectable to the eye, without emitting radiation, and is the first launch within 3Shape’s new smart tip platform


The new generation of TRIOS smart tips features instant-heat technology for optimized scanning.

  • Be scan-ready in seconds with instant-heat technology.
  • Scan 2-3 times as many patients with instant-heat in combination with 30% more battery life.
  • Optimal scanning due to automatic use counter and tip-change alert.
  • The wireless model of the scanner can be plugged in and used if the battery runs out, which is a smart design choice.
  • The TRIOS MOVE has also seen a minor improvement in that the screen size is now larger.


TRIOS is the only scanner with a completely wireless option. Although we have heard many times from other reps that this can cause connectivity issues and problems with scanning, this was never the case. The wireless scanner works without any effect at all, and it is a great option to have.

Improvements to the Dental Desktop user interface and overall optimization of the software. The whole workflow is more intuitive and flows a lot better. The navigation of all aspects of the software using only the scanner ‘wand navigation’ is also a great feature.

The TRIOS software has also seen significant improvements to its scope, including Clear Aligners, Dentures, Sleep appliances, and splints. The software works well for the most part but is still having some issues with stability, causing the occasional crash or file corruption. Trios 4 comes in Pod, Move and Move + variants.
