The TSCAN Occlusal Analysis System is a diagnostic device that allows us to better analyze and adjust your bite and prevent problems.
What is Dental Occlusion?
Dental occlusion refers to the way your teeth meet when you bite together. Optimally, all your teeth should come in contact with one another at about the same time and with equal force. When this does not happen, your occlusion is unbalanced and problems may result. Some of the problems that may result from poor occlusion include:
Broken teeth, restorations and crowns
Receding gums and loose teeth
Pain in the teeth, muscles, and jaw joint
Nighttime teeth grinding
Increased headache and neck pain
Greater tooth wear and sensitivity
How can we help to balance you bite?
A simple occlusal exam with the TSCAN system gives us the information we to need to determine and restore perfect balance to your bite. You simply bite down on a thin sensor and the computer displays the timing of contacts and levels of force in a dynamic movie. It will show your bite from beginning to end and all that is happening in between. This will allow us to immediately visualize problem areas while you are in the chair.
