What is the T-Scan Digital Bite Analysis System?
The T-Scan Digital Bite Analysis System is one of the most state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment tools available to dentists today.
The T-Scan system is also known as the T-Scan Occlusal Analysis System. It is an ultra-thin sensor shaped to fit into your mouth in order to measure your bite force, timing, and location. The T-Scan sensor connects via USB to your expert dentist’s computer.
When you bite, the T-Scan system analyzes and displays the information in full-color 3D images that help your dentist see any potential problems with your bite. The T-Scan system even translates information about your bite, such as the force and timing of your bite in certain locations, into graphs to allow your dentist to balance your bite.
Do I Have a Bad Bite?
If you have a “good” bite, when you close your mouth, all of your teeth touch at the same time with about the same amount of force. If you have a “bad” bite, your bite is unbalanced, potentially causing numerous issues over time such as discomfort when chewing or biting down, night-time clenching or grinding, morning headaches, and chipped and fractured teeth.
