"The T-Scan® is a diagnostic device that measures relative biting forces, including occlusal force, timing and location and is an ideal complementor to articulating paper".
Dr. Martin N. Gorman, Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 22, 2013
Many problems can arise from an unbalanced bite and can cause a great deal of pain for a patient if left untreated. Patients suffer for a long time without realizing that their pain could be easily fixed through occlusal adjustment. A patient experiencing headaches, stiffness in the jaw, sensitive teeth, or neck and back pain should have their dentist check their bite for any problems. Restorations and crowns can change the bite and can lead to problems if the bite is not equilibrated correctly. Using the T-Scan technology gives Dr. Gorman a closer look at the bite along with an analysis of the problem areas causing a patient pain.
Dr. Gorman has adopted a new technology, the T-Scan® into his/her practice to help with diagnosis and treatment of dental occlusion. Occlusion is the way the upper and lower teeth meet when you bite. Ideally all teeth would come into contact with one another at about the same time with equal force on each tooth. An unbalanced occlusion is when the teeth come together at different times and different force is placed on each tooth. The T-Scan is a diagnostic device that measures your bite dynamics and allows Dr. Gorman to easily see each tooth contact and the force applied by that contact.
The T-Scan is a small hand held device which quickly analyzes the bite and displays the information on a computer. Dr. Gorman has been able to reduce the exam time for patients as well as accurately diagnose problem areas with complete confidence. T-Scan not only helps to diagnose where problem areas of a patients bite are but the T-Scan also helps patients to clearly understand what is causing their pain and how it can be fixed.
