Occlusal Problems

Simplified occlusal is the way we “close” our teeth when we eat, swallow or just do nothing.

The occusal – the contacts of the upper and lower teeth at the various jaw positions – is an integral part of what we call dental stomach. The orthogonal system is anatomically formed by the two joints (right and left) of the lower jaw bone with the scalp (temporomandibular structures), the neuromuscular system (the muscles and nerves that guide the jaw movements) and finally the teeth and the how they come into contact. These anatomical elements are interdependent and interdependent and have a direct effect on the functions of the stomagnathic system, which is chewing, swallowing, speech and breathing. Thus, the great significance of closure is evident as any problem or disharmony that may exist in the closure of the teeth will have direct consequence in the functions we have mentioned.

If your teeth do not fit in one another in an ideal way, they can get damaged, break, get moving, sensitive, and lose a support bone. You may also feel pain in the masseter muscles, with possible noises through the temporomandibular joint. It is important that the diagnosis and therapeutic approach is done in advance. This can be kinesiotherapy, administration of anti-inflammatory drugs and use nocturnal stabilizers

T-Scan

T-Scan is the only digital occlusal analysis system. It offers a two-dimensional and three-dimensional representation of the occlusal’s forces relative to the time that happens when we bring our teeth in contact.

Contrary to the “traditional” control of occlusal, the dental carbon, where we can not know which contact was first and with as much power, T-Scan informs us when a contact was made, with how much power and how much time the second, third contact, etc.

So by counting the occlusal we restore the balance of the stomatognathic system and ensures the longevity of teeth and our restoratives.
