Dr. Alavi does not diagnos by merely looking into your mouth as you may have experienced elsewhere. A simple visual exam does not give a clear view of your entire mouth in action in three dimensions! Instead, Dr. Alavi takes molds (impressions) of your teeth, takes measurements of your jaw joint positions and jaw angulation, and records a precise relationship of your upper teeth to lower teeth. He transfers your jaw relationships to an articulator which duplicates your bite and jaw movements. Dr. Alavi then evaluates your mouth with the aid of this articulator that now moves like your mouth.
