Introduction to T-Scan
Occlusion is a complex neurologic science that involves the interplay between the teeth, the muscles and the temporomandibular joints. Occlusion however, is taught biomechanically, absent of true interocclusal functional measurements of the occlusal force and timing of the contacts that affects patient’s neurologic health and comfort every time they use their teeth. The T-Scan™ system makes it possible to precisely control the occlusal forces and timing with natural teeth, dental implants, and prosthodontic restorations. The T-Scan offers patients predictably improved outcomes, while minimizing the common fallout of a dentist’s lack of occlusal measurement; and the repeated post-prosthetic insertion occlusal adjustments that don’t resolve the patient’s comfort issues, despite the dentist’s best efforts.
This course will illustrate how employing occlusal measurement technology, and an evidence-based digital approach to occlusion, helps dentists provide lasting, comfortable and successful treatments for patients in everyday clinical practice.
- How T-Scan, by measuring occlusal contact forces and timing, has revolutionized day-to-day occlusal dentistry, offering both dentists and patients occlusal outcome predictability.
- Discover the real limitations of using articulating papers, and why intraoral scanner occlusion does not replace using T-Scan at prosthetic insertions.
- How to record good T-Scan data and how to use that data to make targeted occlusal corrections.
- A review of important scientific studies and evidence to support the routine use of digital occlusion technology, and what the research means to your patients.
- Common complications in restorative, cosmetic, and implant dentistry – a review of many clinical cases and how to digitally diagnose and treat common occlusal problems.
- Learn how T-Scan-guided “Disclusion Time Reduction (DTR)” treatment helps patients with headaches and TMD problems.
