Fix your bite with Dental Implants

dental-implantsHere at Oak Brook Smiles, using our state-of-the-art and latest dental technologies, we can fix any problem you might experience. With our Dental Implants, we can fix your underbite and overbite issues. We start with taking an impression using what is called a “digital wafer”. This wafer is placed in your mouth and inspects your bite for any obstruction, not only when you bite straight down, but also when you bite side to side and forward and backward. In viewing these bite patterns, we can determine any anomalies and make the needed adjustments. Sometimes, if the bite is significantly off, we suggest a more aggressive therapy approach. Some cases may require crown or bridge work, wisdom teeth removal, and occlusal equilibration, which is a process that takes more than one visit.

What is Occlusal Equilibration?

Using a digital wafer, also known as a “T-Scan” – a no-radiation pressure sensor that has more than 100,000 little sensors that look like a flexible computer grid, we place it inside your mouth to measure the extremity of the bite issue. This technology was invented by the people at MIT. Using this technology, we can also measure not just the extremity of the bite issue, but the timing of the bite and accurate percentage of pressure exerted by each tooth as well.
