How does T-Scan work?
Made by medical technology company Tekscan, T-Scan is a handheld device that Dr. Fallah safely places in your mouth to quickly “scan” teeth. A digital image of your mouth can be viewed by you and the doctor on a monitor. This detailed digital “map” provides precise and thorough information about the relationship among your teeth.
Traditional diagnostics have shown where contact between teeth is made, but they have failed to measure the exact timing and amount of bite forces. In fact, Tekscan reports that 94 percent of dentists struggle with pinpointing how the upper and lower teeth come together by using conventional approaches such as articulating strips. Dentists determine how opposing teeth come together by the marks that are left after patients bite down on these papers.
T-Scan provides a complete picture of destructive imbalances. Dr. Fallah uses his extensive knowledge of how to interpret and analyze this detailed information as a means of accurately identifying problems. Accurate diagnostics are critical to developing an effective treatment plan. The team at Al A. Fallah, DDS, MICCMO, AIAOMT uses T-Scan in a variety of different ways, and for utmost patient satisfaction and optimal results from treatment:
