Dr. Cobb uses T-Scan® for diagnosing bite disorders in his patients, enabling him to make more accurate diagnoses of imbalances in the bite.
Recently recommended by the Dawson Academy as the preferred malocclusion diagnostic tool, T-Scan has been proven to be more effective than the traditional methods such as marking paper. Dr. Cobb, a Dawson trained dentist, has incorporated this technology into his Washington DC dental office as part of a dental exam to ensure that his patients receive the dental care they need for optimal oral health: an imbalanced bite or malocclusion, can lead to a variety of dental health problems down the road if not diagnosed and treated effectively.
The T-Scan device is a thin sensor that provides Dr. Cobb with an accurate reading of the forces of a patient’s bite when they bite down on it. The computer generated analysis can aid in treatment planning, often enabling Dr. Cobb to spot potential future problems and correct them before they fully develop and cause damage to the teeth or gums.
Dr. Cobb understands that a balanced bite is the foundation for a healthy smile. Dental technology, such as the T-Scan® offers many benefits to dental patients and can help keep the natural teeth strong for the long run.
