Best Dental Hungary: Professional bite analysis with Arcus Digma II procedure


An ultrasound bite analysing procedure, the Arcus Digma II is used in the diagnosis and treatment of certain mandibular joint diseases and for the accurate integration of dental prostheses.


Why might this ultrasound bit analysis device be important to you?


An individual's bite, or occlusion, has a unique pattern similar to a fingerprint. The Arcus Digma II can be used for proper diagnosis in the case of a disorder of the mandibular joint and problems caused by improper occlusion, and it makes the correct and safe use of dental splint therapy remarkably easy.


In the case of dental prostheses, determining the individual pattern of the occlusion ensures more precisely and comfortably integrated dental surfaces, so the prosthesis will not cause an uncomfortable feeling.


What problems may be caused by a disorder of the mandibular joint or an improper bite pattern?


If you experience one or more of the following unpleasant complaints regularly, see our specialists.


  • joint pain, especially in the neck, back, and head
  • fracturing or chipping of a tooth
  • grinding of the teeth
  • fracturing or uncomfortable feeling in dental prostheses
  • chewing difficulties
  • periodontal problems
  • cracking or clicking of the mandibular joint (the latter may be a completely harmless symptom)

What does the Arcus Digma II procedure involve?


A special device designed specifically for this procedure is placed on the head. A bite fork filled with a soft material is placed in the mouth and you will be asked to bite on it and move your jaw a little as instructed by the specialist.


Meanwhile the Arcus Digma II prepares images of the teeth and their articulation as well as the movements of the jaw. The latest version of the device has 4 sensors and 8 ultrasonic receivers (microphones) which create an incredibly precise image of the individual's bite pattern.


A computer program analyses the acquired data and prepares the patient’s “bite map" or the relationship of the head of the mandibular joint with the occlusal plane.


How long does this procedure last?


The patient has to wear this special device for approximately 10 to 15 minutes.


When should you request this procedure?


It is always your attending physician who decides whether you need a professional dental bite analysis or not. It is definitely recommended in the case of problems of the mandibular joint, since the success of treatments for this depends on an accurate diagnosis. An analysis that is as precise as possible is recommended for dental prostheses as well, since an accurately articulating dental prosthesis is not only more comfortable but has a longer lifespan too.
