What is TEKSCAN?

Nearly EVERY dental procedure performed impacts occlusion (simply put, the contact between your teeth). Poor occlusion affects the quality of life. Tekscan, or T-Scan, is a tool used by dentists to restore this quality of life. We use dynamic occlusal measurement – revealing the level and timing of force on individual teeth and the occlusal stability of the overall bite.

Do you remember visiting a dentist who had you bite down on bite paper? Our TEKSCAN process replaces that traditional process because old-school bite paper does not measure the intensity or side-favor of your bite.

We use TEKSCAN to:

  • Measure imbalances in your bite
  • Protect crowns, bridges, and veneers from high forces
  • Ensure implants aren’t loading early
  • Screen new patients for baseline occlusion and monitor throughout treatment
  • Improve efficiency by reducing repeat visits: no more endless bite adjustments!
  • Provide the best possible digital radiography (no old school x-rays) for our patients
  • Solving origins of ‘mystery’ dental pain that no one can find by addressing the imbalance of your bite
