What is a T-scan?
Occlusion is the way your teeth and jaws come together. Ideally they should meet at the same time with proper distribution of force.
If teeth are out of alignment you may experience symptoms including:
- Pain in your Temporomandibular joint
- Pain in the neck and shoulders
- Broken teeth or dental restorations
- Trouble eating or speaking
- Possible implant failures
The T-Scan is our state of the art digital software which helps us to identify premature contacts, high forces, and interrelationship of occlusal surfaces. The T-Scan helps us balance our patients’ occlusions with precision and accuracy.
My Name is Sara and I am a patient and employee of Dr. Gandhi. I had battled severe and frequent headaches for longer than I can remember. Shortly after I started working for Dr. Gandhi he noticed how frequently I was experiencing headaches. He asked to do the T-Scan to check my occlusion and sure enough he was right on the money with how off my bite truly was. He recommended braces followed by occlusal adjustment. I was very hesitant going into braces for a second time but on the strong recommendation and trust in Dr. Gandhi I moved forward with addressing my bite. Fast forward to almost 2 years later and not only do I have a more appealing smile but I am practically headache free. I am so grateful to Dr. Gandhi for not only saving my teeth from further damage but improving my quality of life.
