Aesthetic Dental Studio has added two new devices to improve diagnosis and patient comfort. Calgary dentist Dr. Gordon Chee and his team now offer T-Scan technology for computerized bite analysis, as well as a Mind Alive device to help relax anxious patients.
T-Scan is a portable sensor that analyses your bite for areas of high pressure, as well as the order in which your upper and lower teeth make contact. Both of these factors can help Dr. Chee assess the alignment of your bite.
A misaligned bite can lead to a multitude of dental and other health issues, including:
- Worn, broken or crooked teeth
- Difficulty or discomfort when chewing or speaking
- Jaw pain
By using T-Scan, our Calgary dentist can diagnose issues and recommend treatment options such as:
- Orthodontics approaches to straightening the teeth and aligning your bite
- Gum disease prevention
- Appliances to treat symptoms of TMJ/TMD, a malfunctioning of the joint that connects the upper and lower jaw
Meanwhile, Mind Alive technology provides patients who are afraid of the dentist a way to relax without the use of pharmaceuticals. Some patients can experience anxiety during a visit due to unpleasant memories from earlier dental procedures, especially from childhood. With Mind Alive, Dr. Chee and his team can help you remain calm for a variety of procedures.
Instead of sedatives or anesthetic, Mind Alive uses flashes of light and audio tones to refocus brain waves in a way that increases relaxation while offsetting negative emotions like:
- Recurrence of traumatic memories
