The TekScan Digital Occlusion Analysis System
Whether you’re new to the practice or a patient of record, you know our mantra, we have to get your bite right. We follow this truism for even the simplest of treatments. If you’re a patient, you know the bite check, where you tap, tap, tap on two different types of articulating paper so we can see how your teeth are coming together.
Enter Tekscan, a unique system giving us a digital analysis of your bite. By lightly biting on the T-Scan sensors pad — data is transferred to the software interface, creating a high resolution scan of your bite sequence. If you have discomfort, the scan will show us the forces on your bite and where you’re hitting hardest. As an occlusion centric practice, we love the accuracy, and you’ll love visuals.
