Tekscan by BioResearch
Improve the alignment and feel of your smile with the Tekscan® by BioResearch.
At Assure A Smile, we believe in creating beautiful smiles that feel as great as they look. We are pleased to offer the new Tekscan® by BioResearch, an advanced dental technology that measures how teeth come together (occlusion) while highlighting ways in which alignment and feel can be improved. Tekscan® can be used to correct alignment issues, or it may be used to achieve near-perfect alignment after dental procedures like cavities, restorations, crowns, and other procedures.
A better, healthier, and more natural bite. With the help of the Tekscan®, dental professionals for the first time have access to specific measurements of force, bite time, points of contact, and much more. Using the Tekscan®, we measure not just how the teeth come together, but also how they move apart from one another. With these numbers, our team is able to help patients achieve a better, more natural bite that protects the long term health of the teeth, gums, and dental work.
More Information on Occlusion
The term occlusion is used to describe the way in which the upper and lower teeth come together. When someone suffers from malocclusion, they experience a fundamental misalignment of teeth. Malocclusion causes the teeth to exert uneven pressure and force on one another, which may ultimately cause the following:
- Worn teeth
- Cracked teeth
- Sensitive teeth
- Nerve damage, and eventually abscesses
- Loose teeth
- Loss of teeth
- Recession of gums
- Recession of bone
- Soreness in the facial muscles
- TMJ disorders
For these reasons, it is vital that dental professionals help patients achieve precise occlusion after any procedure is performed. Failure to achieve a natural bite after a procedure can lead to discomfort, damage, and the development of more pronounced alignment issues.
