Tekscan Digital Occlusal Analysis – Bohemia, NY

The First Step Toward a Pain-Free Life

A misaligned bite can cause a lot of problems beyond simply affecting the appearance of the smile. If the teeth don’t come together properly, this can lead to accelerated enamel wear and contribute to unconscious grinding, jaw pain, and headaches. For patients dealing with this type of issue, we can get their smile back on track using Tekscan. It allows us to evaluate the bite with extreme precision and determine its proper position in order to deliver treatment that will result in complete and lasting relief.

What is Tekscan®?

Tekscan is a sophisticated machine that provides dynamic occlusal measurement - revealing the level and timing of force on individual teeth and the occlusal stability of the overall bite.

How Does it Work?

A misaligned bite can cause a litany of problems, ranging from nighttime teeth grinding to chronic headaches and much more. When adjusting a patient’s bite, we ask our patient to bite on the bite plate of the Tekscan® and move their jaw to the right and left. It generates a colored graph of pressure being created on each tooth. It helps us find the ideal position for the teeth and jaw so that a patient feels comfortable and is able to function normally day-to-day. This takes all of the guesswork out of the process, ensuring that our patient’s final result can be trusted to last.

Why Our Patients Love It

It has helped our patients who are suffering from headaches, muscle pains and chewing on certain teeth only due to imbalance. It has helped them to restore the quality of their bite and life. Our patients love it as they can see the graph on the TV screen and relate to what they are experiencing with each side and tooth of their mouth. They understand exactly what is going on with their bite and participate in the bite tuning process!
