Our team at Chetan Parikh, DMD, MDS, DABDSM is committed to providing you with accurate and convenient dental care with the latest in dental technology. With T-Scan™, Dr. Chetan Parikh can take digital images of your bite to diagnose any potential issues that may arise from high bite pressure or misalignment. T-Scan™ can also assist our dentist in creating implants and dentures that correctly fit your bite. For more information about T-Scan™ in Rockville, Maryland, or to schedule a consultation, please contact our office at 301.235.9450.
T-Scan™ is the only clinically recognized occlusion analysis system in dentistry. With this hand-held device, our dentist will insert a dental tray into your mouth similar to the trays used when creating a mold of your teeth. The mold that T-Scan™ uses, however, is not full of sticky and goopy putty. Instead, it is a soft pad that fits snuggly inside the mold. Patients will simply bite down on the mold, and the T-Scan™ will create 2D and 3D images of your bite, showing both your alignment and bite forces. With the T-Scan™, our dentist can identify a series of current or future dental problems such as premature contact between the upper and lower teeth, high pressure points in your bite, and misalignments among your occlusal surfaces (the surface of your teeth where the upper and lower jaws meet). From these diagnoses, our dentist can provide you with an accurate and comprehensive treatment plan that will help correct or prevent any issues with minimal adjustments.
Because T-Scan™ is a digital analysis system, our dentist can save your records and monitor any changes in your occlusion over time. This advanced, convenient, and comfortable treatment is great for helping our dentist to prevent tooth fractures and provide you with more accurate, fitted implants and dentures. We invite you to call or visit our office to learn more about how our T-Scan™ occlusion analysis system can help you receive the distinguished and advanced dental care you deserve.
