3Shape and Ormco Announce TRIOS® Integration with Insignia™ Advanced Smile Design™

TRIOS®, 3Shape’s digital colour impression solution, is now integrated with Insignia™ Advanced Smile Design ™, a sophisticated computer-designed treatment planning and custom-fabricated appliance software system by Ormco, a manufacturer and provider of advanced orthodontic technology and services. The integration will take effect from June 20, 2016.

The time-saving workflow integration enables orthodontists to send TRIOS intraoral scans with just a click to Ormco for the planning and delivery of its Insignia bracket treatment system.

For orthodontists using TRIOS, the integration eliminates the steps of having to either take an analogue PVS impression or manually upload a large and bulky intraoral scan file to a server.

Now, they can just choose Insignia from their 3Shape Communicate™ account to submit the case and send the TRIOS digital colour impression file to Ormco, who then uses the intraoral scan to create its customised digital orthodontic treatments. With a keen focus on the orthodontist and their clinical needs, Insignia has been recently updated to include enhanced custom TIB tubes with reduced profiles and increased bond strength. To offer orthodontists better, more accurate tracking and planning information, Insignia also offers dynamic case tracking.

“3Shape constantly seeks new ways to increase TRIOS value for our customers,” says Mr. Allan Junge Hyldal, Vice President 3Shape Orthodontics. “The collaboration with Ormco makes it possible for doctors to take advantage of the unique strengths of our respective products, as well as offer their patients more choices for orthodontic treatments.”

“At Ormco, we’re always looking for ways to strengthen our industry relationships and partner with established, respected players in the field of orthodontics,” said Mr. Spence Miller, general manager, digital business unit at Ormco. “By integrating with 3Shape, we’re pleased to be able to offer clinicians working with TRIOS impression files the opportunity to take advantage of the clinical excellence, precision, and efficiency that Insignia can provide.”
