As dentists, we have always faced unique challenges in understanding timing and forces of occlusal factors.
Boston, MA (PRWEB) February 28, 2012
Dentistry is a science that is largely affected by its materials and equipment. Lost and damaged teeth require replacement or rehabilitation. Thanks to the development of differing dental materials and bite analysis technologies like the T-Scan® (Tekscan Inc. S. Boston, MA USA), we are now able to successfully treat clinical conditions and perform precision bite adjustment. See how a bite test can improve your clinical results.
“Computerized Occlusion”, a newly-published eBook by Dr. J.H. Kim, DDS, details several cases that utilize the T-Scan to measure the balance of a patient's bite. Bite testing allows a clinician to evaluate occlusal contacts prior to making a bite adjustment and successfully treat clinical conditions. A simple bite test can be used to plan restorative cases, resolve jaw pain issues, manage and adjust implants, and locate traumatic occlusal contacts. Dr. Kim states in his eBook that, “As dentists, we have always faced unique challenges in understanding timing and forces of occlusal factors.”
During maxillomandibular intercuspation, time and force are the main occlusal factors the T-Scan can measurably isolate. It readily identifies the very first contact point that precedes numerous other contact points and that transitorily occur during maxilla-mandibular functional movements. The T-Scan determines the contact time-sequencing, the percentage of relative occlusal force between numerous occlusal contacts, and the dynamic display of these occurrences. This enables the clinician to better identify many interfering contacts. With the development of precision technologies, dentists can now treat many occlusal problems successfully and provide patients with predictable high quality results.
