INITIAL COMPREHENSIVE EXAM
Incorporating T-Scan® into the initial comprehensive exam provides a digital evaluation of a new patient’s occlusion. This allows you to identify and document signs of pre-existing malocclusion and track changes in the bite over time.
Hygienists use T-Scan as a diagnostic tool during hygiene recare exams to verify a healthy occlusion. It is also useful for identifying excessive occlusal forces that can lead to periodontal issues if left untreated.
T-Scan® provides clinicians with digital bite force and contact time sequencing data that reveals occlusal instabilities in patients undergoing splint therapy. T-Scan helps identify areas where the splint needs adjustment to ensure that the orthotic device is fitted properly.
T-Scan is the only dental product that gives you digital timing and force data relative to the patient’s occlusion, making you more precise in diagnosing and treating patients with TMD.
Use T-Scan to identify and remove occlusal interferences that can negatively impact jaw joints and muscle function cuasing chronic issues such as: condyle displacement, bruxism, clicking, popping, headaches, neck pain, and more.
An advanced treatment for TMD patients known as Disclusion Time Reduction Therapy (DTR) was developed using T-Scan technology and is making waves in modern dentistry.
Proper occlusal management is critical to the success of orthodontic treatments. Not only should patients feel comfortable with the way their smile looks after ortho, they deserve a healthy, functional bite as well.
Evaluate the patient with T-Scan prior to treatment and track changes in the occlusion as their teeth move into place. During treatment, use T-Scan to help balance bite forces and reduce the patient’s risk of developing chronic issues such as Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD) or Apical Root Resorption (ARR).
Six months to a year post-treatment, use T-Scan again to ensure the occlusion is stable and functional.
OCCLUSAL ANALYSIS AND ADJUSTMENT
When used to analyze and adjust dental occlusion, T-Scan® puts paper marks into context by providing real-time digital data that both you and your patients can see.
With T-Scan, you can feel confident that you are adjusting the occlusion accurately, quickly, and in one appointment.
T-Scan allows dentists to visually see bite force dynamics and understand how it correlates to esthetic treatment. By providing digital timing and force distribution data across the dentition, computerized occlusal analysis aids the clinician in addressing anterior pitch issues and extreme forces to preserve the longevity of veneers.
Whether working with porcelain or composite resin, T-Scan shows occlusal forces surrounding the veneer to determine whether adjustments are necessary at delivery. This is your ultimate insurance policy to protect your cosmetic work.
FULL MOUTH RECONSTRUCTION
Among some of the most complex procedures in cosmetic dentistry, full mouth restorations require precision and artistry to ensure optimal esthetic and functional bites.
T-Scan used throughout a restoration procedure allows dentists to see and evaluate the occlusal scheme, determine where to adjust, and ultimately help extend the life of prosthetics.
T-Scan is an asset to dentists who are concerned about denture stability. Seeing the digital bite timing and force data allows you to efficiently evaluate occlusal problems such as premature contacts, left and right balance issues, and rocking in denture patients.
T-Scan’s real-time occlusal contact sequencing, relative force percentage per tooth data, and implant loading alerts allows you to install an implant prosthesis with control over potentially damaging occlusal forces.
With digital occlusion data, you can protect dental implants by causing the surrounding natural teeth with the absorptive periodontal ligament to take most of the force — resulting in restorations that last a lifetime.
