Maintenance and longevity

Digital Smile Design (DSD) is a multipurpose conceptual protocol which provides a systematic approach for diagnosis, communication, treatment planning, execution, and case maintenance. T-Scan™ digital occlusal analysis technology is a key part of DSD's treatment protocol sequence. With T-Scan, DSD practitioners can reveal bite force and timing data in a visually engaging way, and then use this information to ensure a patient's bite is balanced and functioning harmoniously.

Providing a beautifully formed and flawlessly functional smile is the combined goal of Tekscan and Digital Smile Design.

  • DSDApp incorporated T-Scan into the App for the full purpose of improving patient communication and documentation.
  • Dentists can save and visualize the T-Scan bite recordings all within the DSDApp, bringing a whole new level of documentation that allows dentists to educate and motivate patients to accept treatment.
