What Is T-Scan Occlusal Analysis?
When you bite down, your jaw joint enters a specific position. If you have a bad bite, or if you grind or clench your teeth, you change the position of your jaw joints. This can cause strain in your jaw muscles and may eventually lead to TMJ disorders, discomfort and other problems. Our dentists and team use the T-Scan digital occlusal analysis system to evaluate your jaw joints and determine the position of your teeth and jaws when you bite.
The T-Scan device is a revolutionary diagnostic tool used to diagnose and treat a wide range of occlusal issues. The system uses state-of-the-art technology to provide accurate and reliable data on your bite, showing how, when and with how much force the teeth come together. This helps our dentists identify any areas of high pressure or uneven forces that could be causing discomfort or damage to your teeth.
How Does T-Scan work?
The T-Scan system consists of a handheld sensor that is connected to a computer, allowing our dentists to easily capture and analyze bite data. The sensor is placed in your mouth and records the distribution of forces across the teeth as you bite down. This data is then displayed on a computer screen in real-time, allowing our dentists to see exactly how the patient’s teeth are coming together and identify any issues that may be present.
What Can the T-Scan System Help With?
One of the key benefits of the T-Scan system is its ability to provide a comprehensive analysis of a patient’s bite. By capturing and analyzing data on the distribution of forces across all of the patient’s teeth, our dentists can identify even the smallest areas of high pressure or uneven forces that may be contributing to discomfort or damage. We can then create a more precise and effective treatment plan that addresses the root cause of the issue and helps ensure the long-term health of your teeth and bite.
T-Scan is especially helpful for:
- Dental implants
- TMJ disorders
- Orthodontic treatment
- Restorative treatments, including full-mouth restorations
- Performing initial examinations
We also use M-Scan™ technology, which is a smaller version of T-Scan, to check the bite force against your teeth and provide you with even more precise results from your evaluation. Our dentists can then ensure that your treatment plan meets your exact needs and will improve your oral health, function and quality of life.
