Our dentist and team are here to improve the health and appearance of your smile, but how your jaws function when eating and speaking is extremely important as well. To examine your jaw for mobility issues and to track the effectiveness of your treatment, Dr. Humam Alathari can use M-Scan™ technology in Woodbridge, Virginia.

The M-Scan records the movements of the four muscles of your jaw used during eating and speaking. It records those movements when those muscles are active or at rest to give Dr. Alathari a clearer picture of how your smile works. It also allows Dr. Alathari the ability to compare both sides of your jaw. Using this technology, our team can create your optimal treatment plan, monitor your progress and make any needed changes. It can affect how we use clear aligners in your treatment or the show us the effects of dental implants or crowns on the mechanics of your smile.

The M-Scan can be used as part of many of the treatments we offer at Potomac Dental Care and is part of the comprehensive dental care offered by our team. If you would like more information about how this technology can improve your care and your smile, or if you just want to schedule an appointment with our dentist, call our office at 703-490-4666.
