The T-Scan Occlusal Analysis System is a diagnostic device that helps us analyze and adjust your bite to help solve and prevent future issues.
What is dental Occlusion?
Dental Occlusion is the technical term for how your teeth fit together when you bite. Normally when you bite down all your teeth should contact each other at the same time with the same amount of force. If this does not happen your bite may be unbalanced and this can cause problems. If your occlusion is off you may experience:
- Damaged restorations (crowns, bridges)
- Fractured teeth
- Receding gums or loose teeth
- Pain in teeth, muscles, and jaw joint
- Nighttime teeth grinding
- Increased headache and neck pain
- Greater tooth wear and sensitivity
How can we help?
With a simple occlusal exam using T-Scan we can easily and painlessly determine and restore the balance of your bite. By simply biting on the thin sensor the device will show exactly how your bite is working. With this technology we can quickly find problem areas before you even leave the office.
If you feel that your bite may be off, contact your dentist.
