When a bite is unbalanced problems may result such as damaged restorations, loose teeth, joint pain and excessive sensitivity.
Dental Occlusion refers to the way your teeth meet when you bite together. All teeth should come in contact with one another simultaneously with minimal force.
When this does not happen your occlusion is unbalanced and problems may result, such as damaged restorations, loose teeth, joint pain and excessive sensitivity.
What is T-Scan?
Your bite can be examined and balanced using the T-scan. This computerised sensor allows you and the dentist to visualise the problem areas and have them corrected the same day.
