The T-Scan machine takes a direct occlusal reading of the bite, from the commencement to the conclusion of treatment. With the assistance of this tool, Dr. Solomon can see exactly where and which teeth are touching, and whether the bite is even or if it is too heavy on one side or the other. Once the bite is registered, the T-Scan software then builds a map, showing the highest points of contact, and where the possible unevenness lies.
Once the T-Scan recordings are complete, Dr. Solomon utilizes Posture Pro software which features and highlights the body’s postural issues. Unbeknownst to many, posture plays a huge role in TMJ Disorder: if you would like to read more about it,HERE is a previous blog about the direct correlation between posture and TMD.

With this information, which also shows stress points and the probable future digression of the body if it remains untreated, Dr. Solomon can diagnose even further and more accurately, as well as incorporate posture correction into the ideal TMJ treatment plan.
