Drs. Ann Haggard and Marcus Haggard introduce new technology for bite alignment analysis

Ann Haggard, DDS, and Marcus Haggard, DDS, have introduced the T-Scan in an effort to improve the accuracy of dental occlusion evaluations.

Developed by Tekscan, T-Scan uses a sensor on which patients bite down to have their dental occlusion measured. The machine will show which teeth come together first in the patient, as well as where the teeth touch, how long certain teeth remain in contact and how much force is applied to particular areas.

"When the patient bites down on the sensor," explained Dr. Ann Haggard, "analytic data is transmitted instantaneously to a chairside monitor. There, the information can be viewed by both the patient and myself in real time."
