T-Scan Occlusion

Dental occlusion refers to the way your teeth meet when you bite together. Your teeth should come in contact with one another at the same time and with equal force.

Dental occlusion refers to the way your teeth meet when you bite together. Your teeth should come in contact with one another at the same time and with equal force.

When this doesn’t occur your occlusion is unbalanced and problems result which include:

• Damaged restorations (crowns, bridges)
• Fractured teeth
• Receding gums or loose teeth
• Pain in the teeth, muscles, and jaw joint
• Nighttime teeth grinding
• Increased headache and neck pain
• Greater tooth wear and sensitivity

How can we help to balance your bite?

A simple Occlusal exam with the T-Scan system is very easy and painless. It gives us the information we need to easily determine and restore the perfect balance of your bite. You simply bite down on a thin sensor and the software displays the timing of contacts and
levels of force in a dynamic movie. It will show your bite from beginning to end and all that is happening in between. This will allow us to immediately visualize problem areas before you leave the office that day.

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.  The technology was invented by Dr. William Maness in 1987 at Tufts University and M.I.T.

The office visit experience was professional when I was with the Hygienist, Rhonda, and when I was with the dentist, Steven. They are doing everything right for the patient. The visit included wait time and form completion and the friendly bantering was relaxing and friendly.

The only thing I would change is to somehow have found this place years and years ago. Not only is the dental care first class but so is the atmosphere, created by the entire staff. You walk in the door and friendly people greet you by name. Everyone is helpful and energetic.

The staff at Jeff Rosenberg's office are always authentic, real, and committed to their work on the team. Jeff thinks outside the box and works outside the box to do whatever he can to help us with our teeth and our smiles. They are more like family, really.... and it's always nice to have a dentist in the family, right?
