Do you feel like your bite is uneven every time you eat? Does your jaw ache on a daily basis? You may be experiencing the uncomfortable symptoms of poor tooth alignment, also known as a “bad bite.” Fortunately, Dr. Patrick J. Broome's dentist's office in Charlotte is equipped with the latest, cutting-edge technology to provide the perfect solution to your unique dental health needs. Dr. Broome is proud to incorporate the T-Scan Digital Bite Analysis System into his patients' dental visits when necessary to reach the most precise diagnosis and treatment plan possible.
How does the T-Scan Digital Bite Analysis System Work?
U.S. Company Tekscan developed a revolutionary compact sensor that can be used to measure, record, and create a model of numerous aspects of a patient's bite. The T-Scan Digital Bite Analysis System uses Ultra-thin Mylar grid-based sensors within a very thin, flexible material that a patient can easily bite, allowing the sensors to quickly and accurately measure the exact location, force, intensity, and timing of the patient's bite. The information is automatically displayed in full-color, three-dimensional images on Dr. Broome's computer screen, allowing him to examine the data right away.
Previously, dentist's would have to rely on waxes, articulated paper, and pressure indicator pastes to perform a bite check; however, not only would it take time for the dentist to gather and analyze the results, the information was limited and far from reliable.
What Issues Can the T-Scan Identify?
T-Scan has many advantages, the T-Scan can measure a wide range of details about your bite and mouth, which will allow Dr. Broome to diagnose dental issues including, but not limited to, the following:
Excessively forceful bite
Limited chewing ability
Impaired or slurred speech
Symptoms of temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ)
With an accurate assessment of your bite, Dr. Broome can develop the appropriate plan for treating and correcting issues that may be causing pain, reducing functionality, or negatively impacting the appearance of your teeth and/or face. The T-Scan will allow you to get started on a customized treatment plan, such as:
Such a great vibe with a supportive environment including but not limited to a wealth of knowledge, expert customer service and compassion for the service provided. I was treated like a great friend of the family while visiting the office for consultation.

Dr. Broome and his staff are amazing at what they do! I had four of my teeth replaced with implants after I was in an accident, and they look amazing! I could not be happier with the work and service I received!
I needed a ton of “help” because of how long I let dental problems slide. They came up with a plan that took finances and my own comfort into account. Now, I smile in public.
