Digital bite adjustment
T-Scan® from TekScan is the only clinical recognized and research validated digital bite analysis and equilibration system. Using the T-scan, we can find and evaluate both the force and timing of your bite. Regular bite paper can only determine location. This helps us balance your occlusion with precision and accuracy.
Normal bite paper only shows where you are biting. It does not show how hard you are biting or where you bite first. A proper adjustment can help decrease the stress you put on a single tooth or implant by equally distributing the pressure and force.

Frequently asked questions
Do you use the T-scan on all patients?
We only use the T-scan if deemed necessary. This means we can use it on patients that have a full mouth reconstruction, implants and nightguard if deemed necessary.
Is it uncomfortable?
No. There is no pain associated with it. The wafers you bite on are very thin and comfortable.
