Do you think your bite is off ? 

How your teeth come together is called “occlusion.” Sometimes your teeth don’t fir proprerly when your teeth occlude when you bite, close, or chew. This can lead to:

  • Headache
  • Jaw Pain and stiffness
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Neck and back pain

Take the bite test

We have added T-Scan occlusal analysis system to our practice. The T-Scan helps us see what’s really happening as the forces of your teeth come together in your mouth. This allows us to better analyze and adjust your bite to 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’nt happen,your occlusion is unbalanced and problems may result. some of the problems that may result from poor occlusion include:

  • Damaged restorations (crowns, bridges)
  • Fractured teeth
  • Recending gums or 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 your bite ?

A simple occlusal exam with the T-Scan system is very easy and painless. It gives us the information we need to easily determine and restore the perfect balance of your bite. 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 wil show your bite from beginning to end and all that is happening in betwen. This will allow us to immediately visualize problem areas before you leave the office that day.
