Successful Orthodontic Treatment Starts with Digital Occlusion
Orthodontic treatment is now more accessible than ever with Invisalign, Six Month Smiles and braces for adults. While most patients seek ortho for cosmetic reasons, it is important for you to maintain a healthy occlusion so these patients will remain satisfied with the results of orthodontia for years to come. T-Scan™ gives you accurate, digital data related to the patients occlusion so you can balance bite forces properly throughout orthodontic treatment. This means, possibly preventing chronic side-effects such as:
- Idiopathic Condylar Resorption (ICR)
- Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD)
- Chronic Myofascial Pain (CMP)
- Apical Root Resorption (ARR)
Tekscan offers dentists training opportunities and courses to learn more about balancing occlusion during orthodontia with T-Scan.
