Today’s technology takes much of the guess work out of traditional bite analysis methods. Conventional methods for evaluating a patient’s bite required the use of articulating paper, which only demonstrates the end results of occlusal contact. Without being able to record which teeth make first contact and measure their relative strength, these methods cannot produce a comprehensive assessment.
Dr. Wasserman uses a computerized occlusal (bite) analysis system which tracks the timing and force of a patient’s bite. This hand held device, quickly and accurately captures data that is sent to a computer for immediate analysis. The patient simply bites down on an ultra-thin sensor, which measures the time and force of the bite. From this 3-D analysis, Dr. Wasserman can determine exactly where the instability in your bite is occurring.
Without treatment, an unstable bite can be painful and lead to complex dental problems or TMJ disorders. With this hi-tech analysis, Dr. Wasserman can provide you with timely and comprehensive solutions.
