Dental occlusion refers to the way your teeth meet when you bite together. All teeth should come in contact with one another simultaneously with minimal force. When this does not happen, your occlusion is unbalanced and problems may result.
Our team is dedicated to help you make the most informed decisions about your dental care. Since we want you to feel at ease during all dental procedures, we'll make sure to answer all of your questions before, during, and after your visit.
"With Tekscan, I can see how much relative force is applied to each tooth as you bite and go side to side. With that information, I can adjust the tooth or restoration to remove the risk of trauma to the bite and prevent overworking muscles of mastication. "
How it Works...
The ultra-thin, reusable sensor, shaped to fit the dental arch, inserts into the sensor handle, which connects into the USB port of your existing PC, making it easy to move from one operatory to another. Evaluating occlusal forces is as simple as having a patient bite down on the sensor while the computer analyzes and displays timing and force data in 3-D or 2-D.
