While at the recent California Dental Association meeting in San Francisco, we had the chance to stop by the Microcopy booth and see the company’s new Bite-Chek articulation film.

According to the manufacturer, the new Bite-Chek articulation film simplifies occlusal adjustments, accurately marking points of contact and minimizing the possibility of “too high” an occlusion causing post-operative tooth sensitivity. Complete with an easy-grip handle which keeps the film from curling, Bite-Chek requires no forceps removing the risk of patients biting down on them. And, since no forceps are required for placement due to the easy-grip handle, there’s no marking on gloves or surrounding equipment.

“We are extremely excited to introduce our new articulation film,” said Paul Tucker, director of marketing for Microcopy. “Its easy-grip handle makes it so much simpler for dentists to use during articulation procedures. And, the handle removes additional markings on gloves or equipment causing less mess. No more pain, no more mess, no more forceps. It’s that simple. And, with hygienists checking occlusion more often after routine procedures, the simplicity that Bite-Chek provides becomes even more important.”

Bite-Chek’s thin profile helps patients close their bite completely, eliminating mandibular reflexes that can skew the occlusion. The result is a small, precise mark that makes adjustment easy to interpret.
