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.
To help solve these issues we have a T-Scan Occlusal Analysis System in our practice. The T-scan is a diagnostic device that allows us to better analyse and adjust your bite (occlusion) and prevent problems! You simply bite down on a thin sensor and the software 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 before you leave the office that day.
This state-of-the-art technology can accurately and objectively measure your occlusion/bite to elevate your pain.
