What is Occlusion and T-Scan™?

T-Scan™ is dentistry’s only clinically recognized and research 
validated digital occlusion analysis system.


T-Scan™ is a dynamic occlusal measurement system that reveals the level and timing of force on individual teeth and the occlusal stability of the overall bite—T-Scan™ brings articulating paper marks to life. 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.


T-Scan uses an ultra-thin intra-oral sensor to capture your 
patient’s bite.
The T-Scan sensor connects to the T-Scan hand-piece.


Next, the sensor is inserted into the mouth. Click the record button, have the patient bite, and the scan is instantly ready to review.

The Tscan provides 3 primary pieces of information:

·      FORCE

The T-Scanuses colors to represent the forcefulness of tooth contacts,, from low forces, blue, to high forces, red. Forces are also represented as a percentage of force on individual teeth.


·      TIMING

Timing and sequence of tooth contacts can be seen by playing back a scan in slow motion. You can easily identify which forceful contact hits first, second and third. Notice that number four hits earliest and with high force. This tooth may be a candidate for treatment.



The T-Scan™ has a customizable model of the patient’s upper and lower arch for more accurate mapping and locating of contacts. As an example, this arch has been customized to show missing teeth, and implants on all posterior teeth. It is now easier to identify the high force location on the implant on tooth number three.


The T-Scan system is a valuable tool that aids in the diagnostic 
process of analyzing a patient's bite, showing what is, and what is 
not functioning properly.

The T-Scan Occlusal Analysis system can be incorporated into your office in the following ways:

  • Hygiene
  • Initial Patient Exam
  • Identify Premature Contacts
  • Anytime you use Articulation Paper
  • Increase Implant Longevity
  • Case Finishing
  • Patient Education/Documentation
