Occlusion diagnostics and treatment

T-Scan - Digital Occlusal Analysis - T-Scan™ provides dynamic occlusal measurement - revealing the level and timing of force on individual teeth and the occlusal stability of the overall bite.

T-Scan - Digital Occlusal Analysis - T-Scan™ provides dynamic occlusal measurement - revealing the level and timing of force on individual teeth and the occlusal stability of the overall bite.

Using T-Scan we can:

  • Protect crowns, bridges, and veneers from high forces
  • Ensure implants aren't loading early
  • Check anterior contacts during active clear aligner therapy
  • Screen new patients for baseline occlusion and monitor throughout treatment
  • Complement the use of intraoral scanner technologies. (T-Scan provides different but essential data.)

Kois Deprogrammer Appliance - a removable, plastic appliance that covers the hard palate and creates a single point of contact between the lower central incisor and the anterior bite plane. Used for evaluating the stability of a patient’s bite, the Kois Deprogrammer is of invaluable assistance to dentists trying to locate a patient’s optimal jaw position or distinguish between the three types of abnormal occlusal attrition – Constricted Path of Closure (PCP), Occlusal Dysfunction and Parafunction (bruxism).

Having a bite incompatible with the jaw joint and muscles can present serious issues for individuals as they attempt tasks considered mindless by many. These individuals may have difficulty chewing “harder” foods (i.e. carrots, bagels, nuts, gum), may have difficulty finding his or her bite, may experience facial pain and may incur increased wear to teeth resulting in the need for frequent dental treatment. Improving a patient’s bite can resolve many, if not all, of these issues but can be challenging for the dentist if the patient’s bite is difficult to manage. The Kois Deprogrammer, developed by Dr. John C. Kois, D.M.D., M.S.D, is a useful tool for dentists looking to provide such treatment.
