T-Scan® provides dynamic occlusal measurement—revealing the level and timing of force on individual teeth and the occlusal stability of the overall bite—bringing articulating paper marks to life.
Historically, the field of occlusion in dentistry has been dominated by subjective analysis and “patient feel” to diagnose and treat problems related to the bite. Articulating paper is an occlusal indicator that only shows points of contact between teeth. However, paper alone cannot provide data on the level of force and timing of when the teeth come together.
With T-Scan’s digital bite force data, clinicians can pinpoint occlusal interferences, quickly remove them, and treat patients with greater accuracy than ever before. T-Scan is also a great visual aid that helps patients to better understand their occlusion and the treatments that may be necessary to balance bite forces.
