The Erdenheim, PA dental practice of Chesheim Dental Associates incorporates the latest in innovative dental technology to enhance patient care. One such example is the Tekscan® for computerized occlusal analysis. The T-Scan is a diagnostic device that records your bite force dynamics, including occlusal force, location and timing. What does that mean for you?

The position of your bite is very important. The slightest change can throw it off. For example, if you lose or break a tooth, your bite balance changes. When we restore your tooth with a crown or tooth-colored filling, it is important that it is placed correctly within your bite. If the filling surface is too high or too low, your bite will be thrown off balance.

With the T-Scan we can precisely analyze your bite – making sure it is in an optimal position so the forces are balanced and even. No longer do we have to ask you, “Does that feel ok?” There is no more guesswork. We know where the correct bite position is.
