Digital Bite Force Measurement
TruDenta uses digital force measurement technology, powered by Tekscan®, for evaluating the amount of bite force that is present during closure, at closure, and while chewing. The technology is so advanced that it actually calculates the bite force and motion on a tooth-by-tooth basis. Bite balance is also calculated to identify potential issues within the overall chewing system.
Bite force imbalance is another “red flag” which assists doctors in accurately diagnosing DMSD.
This digital exam literally shows a movie of the bite force in action, revealing abnormal forces or imbalances in the nerves, muscles and ligaments that could be the cause of symptoms.
- Instantly view a graphic and numeric presentation of bite forces
- Quickly grasp how painful symptoms may be caused by dental forces
- Educates patients to assist in treatment acceptance
- Monitor progress during rehabilitation
The digital, objective examination and assessment results are combined with the doctor’s TruDenta-specific exam, producing consistent diagnosis leading to predictable outcomes. This data enhances medical insurance collections and the collaboration with referring MDs.
