Trios 5 by 3Shape
Our pick for the best all-around scanner, this scanner is known for its ease of use and fast scanning speed. It also offers a wide range of features such as color capture and integration with other dental software.
Trios 5 is the latest digital intraoral scanner developed by 3Shape. It is designed with patient protection and infection control in mind, it is not only hygienic by design, but also smaller, lighter, and designed to fit perfectly in every hand. It also comes with a new ScanAssist engine for perfect scan results and TRIOS Share, for ultimate connectivity.
The ScanAssist engine is the heart of Trios 5, it's an intelligent alignment technology that builds up a 3D model resulting in precision scans, effortlessly and efficiently. This engine removes the need to follow a specific scan strategy or protocol, you can scan in any direction you want and create a scan path that works best for you. This engine also avoids stitching errors by reconstructing and building up the 3D model while scanning, and it's continuously updated with the latest information which will result in a high-quality scan, regardless of the level of experience with scanning.

Primescan by Dentsply Sirona
Primescan is a digital intraoral scanner developed by Dentsply Sirona, it's a follow-up to the OmniCam.
It offers very clear and fast scanning, a large window on the scanner itself allows for excellent visibility, and it can do a full arch in less than 90 seconds. It's also the best choice if you have an in-house CEREC milling machine.
It's also one of the most expensive options on the market, and you must buy the entire unit: scanner, computer, and cart. The wand is a bit larger than other scanners and the market, and it performs sub-optimally with copy denture digital scanning workflows. Additionally, there is no required annual fee; bumper-to-bumper optional support and labor coverage available through CEREC club.
Russellville Dental Lab is a Sirona Connect lab
- A larger scan wand than some other scanners
- Doesn't export to STL without additional $
- Wants you to be in a closed system.
Around $30,000 for the hardware to scan and send to the lab. It's another $32k or so to mill in-house.
