For years, dental occlusal analysis had been largely a matter of guesswork for dentists. Articulation paper, waxes, pressure indicator paste, etc. were all dentists had to assess and balance the occlusal forces. Most of these methods are not sensitive enough to detect simultaneous contact, and none measure both biting time and force. T-Scan’s grid-based sensor technology successfully measures the pressure on each other when they come under contact in each microsecond.
T-Scan III is a reliable and easy-to-use clinical diagnostic device that senses and analyzes occlusal contact forces using paper-thin, disposable sensors. The T-Scan III system comes with a full-featured Patient File Management system, which makes storing patient records and tracking occlusal recordings simple, and makes the system an integral component of the clinical workstation for occlusal diagnosis and treatment.
The T-Scan system is a valuable tool that aids in the diagnostic process of analyzing a patient’s bite and showing what is and what is not functioning properly. When a bite is unstable it can cause pain, teeth and dental restorations to crack and break, gum disease, tooth loss, headaches, and TMJ Disorder.
