T-SCAN Occlusal Scanner
A T-SCAN occlusal scanner is a device used in dentistry to assess and analyze the bite and occlusion (the way the upper and lower teeth fit together) of dental patients. It provides a detailed digital representation of the patient’s occlusal surfaces, capturing the contact points and forces exerted during various jaw movements.
By using specialized sensors and software, the T-SCAN occlusal scanner records the timing, intensity, and location of occlusal contacts when the patient bites or moves their jaws. This information helps dentists diagnose and evaluate occlusal abnormalities, malocclusions, and bite-related issues.
With the help of the T-SCAN occlusal scanner, dentists can identify uneven forces on individual teeth, pinpoint high-pressure areas, and detect imbalances in the bite. This data assists in planning and adjusting dental treatments such as orthodontics, prosthodontics, and occlusal adjustments, ensuring that the patient’s bite is properly aligned, reducing the risk of dental problems, and improving overall oral health.
