T Scan Bite Analysis
Do you think your bite is off?
If your bite is unbalanced or misaligned, you could suffer from:
- Jaw soreness
- Inability to open widely or move your jaw to both sides
- Lack of comfortable biting pressure
- Neck or back pain, sensitive teeth
- Gum recession
- Tooth wear
- Fractures or teeth
- Chipping of fillings and crowns
- Notches forming at the base of teeth
The T-Scan Occlusal Analysis System (T-Scan) is an advanced diagnostic device that allows us to better analyze your bite and prevent problems. You simply bite down on a thin sensor and the computer software displays the timing of contact and levels of force you generate in a small movie. It will show you and Dr. Duke your bite from beginning to end and all that is happening in between. This will allow us to visualize problem areas before you leave the office that day.
If you bite needs balancing (equilibration), the T-Scan maps exact location needing adjustment with pinpoint accuracy. By checking your bite throughout the equilibration, Dr. Duke knows exactly where and how much to balance.
