What is the T-Scan?
The T-Scan® system is dentistry’s only clinically recognised and research validated digital occlusion analysis system. It allows for a more confident, proactive approach to patient care and treatment.
This state-of-the-art digital software allows the dentist to assess and analyse how you use teeth in every day speaking and chewing.
How does it work?
It measures the biting surfaces that come into contact when you chew and at the same time records the pressure placed on each tooth.
This information is fed back to sophisticated software that gives us a graphic representation of the biting forces and functioning of your teeth.
Whether eliminating destructive forces on a new restoration, or performing an occlusal analysis and adjustment procedure on your existing teeth, the T-Scan helps to balance your bite with precision and accuracy.
It is routinely used in practically all dental treatments including fillings, dentures, crowns & bridges, veneers, implants and orthodontics.
Benefits of a T-Scan assessment and analysis:
- Can easily diagnose disruptive and interfering biting contacts between top and bottom teeth.
- Helps to preserve dental treatment for long term.
- Fewer postoperative complications and problems.
- A more stable bite can be achieved.
- A stable bite means a stable jaw with balanced facial muscles.
- Changes that occur over time can easily be monitored.
- Repetitive tooth adjustments and repeat visits are minimised.
- Less chances for teeth to accidentally break or fracture.
Due to its ease of use and in-depth information this has been an exciting advance in the world of dentistry and has lead to better and much more proactive dental care.
The usefulness of technology
Good quality highly specialised technology such as the T-Scan® system allows us to successfully intercept any interferences, destabilising tooth contacts and excessive forces between teeth as well as understand the anatomical foundations of the teeth, jaws and mouth.
We can then incorporate any inconsistencies we find into our treatment planning and make sure that we eradicate any harmful tendencies at the same time as treating the initial cause.
The T-Scan® system has brought dentistry forward into a completely new era of diagnosis and treatment planning for higher quality long lasting dentistry.
