Sun Prairie, WI (PRWEB) August 20, 2015
People living with jaw pain in Sun Prairie, WI have new hope for relief, as Dr. Chris Stevens now offers the modern T-Scan Occlusal Analysis System™ for occlusion adjustment at his office. Maladjustment of the bite can cause a host of problems, including teeth grinding, which can lead to serious damage to the teeth. Teeth must align comfortably and correctly or they will cause bruxism that can damage teeth over time.
For his patients who have lived with jaw pain in Sun Prairie, WI, Dr. Stevens starts with an analysis of the jaw and teeth. Looking at the structures reveals a great deal about how the patient uses their teeth and how they align. Next he surveys the structures of the patient's mouth with the T-Scan. The simple bite test uses computer assisted devices that allow Dr. Stevens to monitor the force of the bite, as well as the timing and location of the teeth coming together.
Occlusal maladjustment, or misalignment of the teeth, is likely to lead to a host of oral health concerns including:
- Teeth grinding, which can lead to structural damage to the teeth
- TMJ pain
- Neck aches
- Tooth pain
When Dr. Stevens has thoroughly assessed the causes of the interferences with proper bite alignment, he is able to carefully sculpt the biting surfaces of the teeth so that they align properly. He removes just a slight bit of the tooth so that the top and bottom teeth meet together properly for optimal jaw functioning.
