Dr. Drew Randall uses a powerful animated consultation program that makes it easy for patients to understand their dental issues and treatment recommendations! We have received advanced training for, and are committed to the effective treatment of the destructive effects of occlusal disease. We use a novel and very beneficial consultation presentation program called BiteFX™ that uses friendly animations to explain problems in a way that makes sense to the patient. With BiteFX, our patients quickly understand complicated concepts that were previously difficult and time consuming to explain. We can also combine photos of your teeth with the BiteFX animations to give you an even better appreciation of our treatment recommendations.
This animation allows us to show our patients a close-up of the jaw’s positioning muscles alongside a view of the opening and closing muscles under normal bite conditions. The animation colors the muscles red when they are tensing and blue when they are relaxed. This animation shows the patient how the upper and lower molars should make contact. Notice there is no contact whatsoever on any sloped surfaces and the forces are vertical along the main axis of the teeth. These animations of normal bite functions along with others showing abnormal behaviors make it much easier for our patients to understand their bite problems and how they should be treated.
