Finally - A High Tech Approach to Bite Relief and TMJ Disorder
Do you suffer from migraines? Maybe there is discomfort in your mouth or jaw you can't quite explain. When a bite is unstable it can cause pain, broken restorations, gum disease, tooth loss, headaches and TMJ disorder. This bite instability is known as dental occlusal disease.
For years, dental occlusion had been largely a matter of controversy for dentists, and many of the methods used were not sensitive enough to detect simultaneous contact, and none measured both biting time and force.
At Henderson Mill Dental Care, we can use the T-Scan III system: a valuable tool that aids in an accurate diagnostic analysis of a patient's bite to show what is and what is not functioning properly.
This procedure is painless, requiring only that the patient bite down on an ultra-thin sensor, shaped to fit the dental arch, which feeds the points of contact to a computer that analyzes and displays timing and force data in full-color graphics.
