Product Description

This is the scanner that sets a new standard in patient protection and infection control. It is not only hygienic by design, but also smaller, lighter, and designed to fit perfectly in every hand. On top of that, it comes with our new ScanAssist engine for perfect scan results, and TRIOS® Share, for ultimate connectivity. Simply hygienic. Simply ergonomic. Simply effortless. Simply TRIOS® 5!



Balanced Scanning – TRIOS® 5 is our smallest and lightest scanner to date. Even better, this sleek, pen-grip scanner is perfectly balanced and made to fit comfortably in every hand. Including yours. It’s the scanner that feels just right.



Intelligent Scanning ScanAssist Engine – TRIOS® 5 intelligent alignment technology for building up a 3D model results in precision scans, effortlessly and efficiently. Every time. So you can concentrate on providing the excellent care that makes your patients smile.

  • Calibration free – The scanner is calibration free, meaning you don’t need to calibrate after a certain number of scans. It’s always ready to use!
  • Smart haptic feedback – Switching focus between patient and screen can be distracting. That’s why the scanner uses haptics – a subtle vibration – to give you feedback.
  • LED to indicate readiness – A LED ring on the scanner indicates the status of the scanner: it tells you when it’s connected, low on battery, or the tip is ready, for example. You’ll know if you’re scan-ready with just a glance.
  • Remote control button – Use your scanner as a remote control. Point to the screen and use the button to select your next step or rotate the 3D model. There’s no longer the need to touch (and clean) the mouse.
  • Smart power management – When you don’t use the scanner, it goes into sleep mode to save battery. It then reactivates when you pick it up again. Simply powerful.



Hygienic Scanning – TRIOS® 5 sets a new standard for patient protection and infection control. We like to call it ‘hygienic by design’. It’s easy to clean because it hardly has any openings or crevices. But you don’t need to take our word for it: TRIOS 5 is FDA cleared, too. Let’s take a look at what we did.

  • Sleeve for optimal cleanness – The ultra-thin, snug and near-invisible sleeve minimizes the risk of cross-contamination. It’s one-time use – you put it on, scan and take it off when you’re done scanning. It’s that simple.
  • Scratch-free sapphire glass – The window inside the tip is made of sapphire glass. What makes this material great? It’s scratch-free and heats up super-fast – ensuring your tip is scan-ready in seconds.
  • Sealed mirror – Inside the scanner, you’ll find a sealed mirror. Because the mirror is enclosed, no dust or dirt can enter and affect the optics performance of the scanner.
  • Closed autoclavable tip – We’ve developed a closed, autoclavable tip. This means that the risk of cross-contamination between patient visits is minimized.


New TRIOS® 5 Innovations Include:

  • 30% smaller and 20% lighter compared to TRIOS 4. Made to fit perfectly in your hand.
  • Introducing ScanAssist, providing you with easier scanning independent of scan strategy.
  • Improved battery technology, requiring only one battery per day.
  • Truly effortless: calibration free scanner.
  • LED ring and haptic feedback for better user guidance.
  • Two-button design for improved software navigation and scan analysis.
  • Autoclavable scan tips providing a microbial barrier on the scan tip.
  • Body sleeves to significantly reduce risk of cross contamination.
  • Closed tip design to avoid cross contamination.
  • Scanner body has been designed for cleaning and disinfection.
