TekScan – TMJ Disorder Treatment
Tekscan is a valuable tool that aids in diagnosing problems with a person’s bite. The T-Scan system can show how hard you bite on individual teeth when you close your jaw. When a bite is unstable it can cause pain, broken restorations, gum disease, tooth loss, headaches, and TMJ disorder.
The T-Scan device uses a very thin digital sensor that the patient bites into. The computer then analyzes and displays the data. Because the sensor technology is so advanced, the T-Scan can detect both biting time and force. This will allow use to correct any bite issues without the guesswork previously needed and reduce the number of office visits you will need to have your occlusion (bite) corrected.
