Lynn Dental Care Team Attends and Hosts Tekscan Seminar
I am Dr. Brock Lynn of Lynn Dental Care and as a family, cosmetic, restorative, and periodontal dentist, I am always looking for new ways to enhance the care I give my patients. Recently, my team and I attended a Tekscan course. I was honored to host the hands-on portion of the course right here in the Lynn Dental Care office.
Tekscan, often called T-Scan, is a system that analyzes a patient’s bite for functional discrepancies. A person’s bite can have an incredible impact on the overall look and function of their mouth. An unstable bite can cause pain, broken restorations, gum disease, tooth loss, headaches, and TMJ disorder. Dental occlusal analysis has always been a tricky area for most dentists. While we had tools to help in diagnosing malocclussion, a large part of the evaluation process was left to guesswork.
The T-scan system is an incredible technology that is sensitive enough to detect simultaneous contact, as well as measure both biting time and force. Guesswork is now a thing of the past. The T-Scan plugs right into my computer so I can easily see my patients’ balance of bite in a clear, vivid graphic. These pictures and other information are printable and valuable for documentation, patient education, and insurance claims, if needed.
I am excited to incorporate the T-Scan system into the services already available to my patients at Lynn Dental Care. For more information or to schedule a consultation, please contact my Dallas office.
