Have you had fillings or crowns done in other offices and the bite hasn't "felt quite right" or "felt a little high"? If so, we have a computerized bite analysis instrument that takes the guesswork out of adjusting a new crown or filling. It is called a T-Scan, by a company called Tekscan. It takes a 100 year old technique and adds a computerized, technological approach to it. This technology allows the dental professional to evaluate your bite in 1/100 second increments, to ensure you bite is balanced and healthy.

"For years, dental occlusal analysis had been largely a matter of guesswork for dentists. Articulation paper, waxes, pressure indicator paste, etc. were all dentists had to assess and balance the occlusal forces. Most of these methods are not sensitive enough to detect simultaneous contact, and none measure both biting time and force. Tekscan met the challenge by developing the T-Scan system. T-Scan's grid-based sensor technology proved so successful that Tekscan has applied the same technology to hundreds of other applications, forming Tekscan's Medical and Industrial divisions." --Quoted from T-Scan website
