Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) February 21, 2008
Customers may have noticed that a trip to their dentist office has changed remarkably over the last few years. With many offices offering spa-like environments and flat-screen televisions, going to the dentist is not what it used to be. Unlike the relaxed façade that many practices present, Dr. Hugh Flax's Atlanta Aesthetic and Laser Dentistry office offers much more indluding the latest and coolest technology in restorative and cosmetic dentistry. Six years ago, Dr. Flax added to his Atlanta practice the T-Scan (Tekscan, Inc.) and is now working to improve the software and educate others on this outstanding technology.
The T-scan is a dental occlusion analysis system which measures the exact force and timing of a patient's bite. Unlike the traditional paper, wax, or paste tests, this system creates a computerized imaging that takes the guess work out of analyzing. This allows dentists like Dr. Flax to spend more time fixing the problem than investigating it with inaccurate procedures of measurement.
When Tekscan, Inc. asked for a testimonial from Dr. Flax, he was pleased to state, "With T-Scan, our patients are able to be ecstatic about their smiles for the long-term. We can zero in on better results. Recently a patient came in thinking he needed a root canal. We found there was excess pressure being applied to the tooth because of a bite imbalance. We corrected it without needing to resort to a root canal or any other invasive procedure. Now he feels great!"
Spending hundreds, or even thousands, of dollars on beautiful dentistry is pointless if it isn't going to properly function. When choosing cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Flax feels it is imperative that a patient not only receive a beautiful smile, but also one that will last comfortably. That is why he performs the T-Scan bite analysis on all of his patients - proving that a healthy smile is more than just beautiful.
Dr. Flax is an accredited dentist by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD). He is a well-known author and lecturer in the field, and hosts teaching seminars through his Success by Design Seminars.
