T-Scan Occlusal Analysis

One of our newest and most exciting technologies is the T-Scan Computerized Occlusal Analysis System. This powerful diagnostic tool allows Dr. Hollar to accurately measure occlusal timing and force.

For years, dental occlusion has been largely a matter of guesswork for dentists. Articulations paper, waxes, pressure indicator paste, etc., were all the dentist had to assess and balance the forces of occlusion. Most of these methods are not sensitive enough to detect simultaneous contact, and none measure both biting time and force. The T-Scan occlusal analyzer has met this challenge, and we are now able to effectively reduce the risk of:

  • Implant failure
  • Traumatized teeth
  • Severe gum recession
  • Tooth notching
  • TMJ discomfort
  • Unstable splints
  • Porcelain failure
  • Fractured teeth

The heart of T-Scan technology is a disposable, extremely thin, flexible sensor. By biting and chewing against the sensor, a three dimensional view of your bite is displayed on our computer screen. We can then easily adjust the bite and check our work with the sensor. The process is repeated until the biting forces are equalized.
