Modern Treatment for Patients with Jaw Pain in Sun Prairie, WI
Dental occlusion is the way in which your teeth come together when biting down. A normal occlusion, or bite, means that all of the teeth are making contact simultaneously and with equal force. An imbalanced occlusion means that the teeth or jaw is not in proper alignment. Without treatment from Dr. Chris Stevens, a bad bite can worsen, causing bruxism, jaw pain, and other health and dental problems in Sun Prairie, WI.
If you experience any of these symptoms, you could have poor occlusion or another dental problem. Dr. Stevens uses the T-Scan® Occlusal Analysis System, a progressive dental application used by today’s leading doctors, to accurately diagnose and treat occlusion problems caused by bruxism and other dental conditions. Call us today to arrange your consultation.
T-Scan Technoogy Improves Outcomes
The traditional method used to measure, diagnose, and evaluate occlusion is less accurate and effective compared to the newer technologies that Dr. Stevens uses. The revolutionary T-Scan® Occlusal Analysis System is a quick and painless bite test that uses computer assisted technology to more accurately diagnose the time, force, and location of your bite for a more successful adjustment. The T-Scan® is also used to improve outcomes for a variety of other dental procedures.
Common Symptoms and Consequences of Poor Occlusion include:
- Bruxism (tooth grinding)
- Neck, head, and jaw pain
- Tooth fractures
- Damage to previous dental treatment
- Gum recession
- Sensitive teeth
- Wear and tear on teeth
Get Your Bite Right
A misaligned bite is more common and serious than you might think. Bruxism is often the cause and can happen for a variety of reasons, including stress and anxiety, and the use of stimulating substances including tobacco, alcohol, and certain drugs. Bruxism is also common among young children but tends to stop as they get older.
