Bite Analysis – TScan
Dr. Kimberley Daxon uses state-of-the-art technology in their facility to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of their patients, such as the T-Scan. This technology allows for more accurate diagnosis and successful treatment planning. Traditional analysis methods for evaluating a patient’s bite required them the use of articulating paper which could only show the end result of occlusal contact. Unable to record which contact hit first or measure their relative strength, these methods could not produce a comprehensive assessment.
Dr. Kim Daxon and Dr. Ken Grunset use the T-Scan, a computerized occlusal (bite) analysis system. This hand-held device allows the dentists to quickly and accurately determine how well balanced your bite is. Patients simply bite down on an ultra-thin sensor, and the device measures the time and force of the bite, sending the information to a computer which analyzes and displays the data in minutes.
With this 3-D analysis, Dr. Daxon can quickly and accurately determine where the problems are with your bite.
Benefits of T-Scan:
- Quick and easy to use
- Allows for more accurate diagnosis and treatment planning
- Digital results can be used to monitor treatment progression and outcome
- Digital results can also be easily archived with patient’s other digital dental records
