Course Objectives:

  • Learn the benefits of using T-Scan in both fixed bracket and Clear Aligner cases
  • See how clinicians can guide occlusal adjustments to the ideal orthodontic outcome using digital occlusal analysis
  • Understand how using T-Scan can precisely target occlusal changes that occur both during active treatment, and during “Settling”
  • Find out why T-Scan is important during case-finishing
  • See Dr Kerstein’s real-life cases and more!

Course Overview:

  • Ideal occlusal contacts do not result from tooth movement alone. Often, despite there being a visually ‘perfect’ Class I relationship post-orthodontic treatment (whether Clear Aligners or fixed bracket treatment was rendered) the patient commonly experiences problems soon after finishing their treatment course
  • Creating simultaneous and equal force on the occlusal contacts following tooth movement can readily be accomplished using the T-Scan 10 technology (Tekscan Inc., Norwood, MA, USA) to optimize the end-result occlusal contact pattern.
  • Using T-Scan can precisely target changes in the occlusion that occur during active treatment and during “Settling” (when teeth move freely within the periodontium trying to find equilibrium)
  • The T-Scan clearly isolates the degree of right to left side occlusal force imbalance.
  • It can also detect teeth that are under excessive occlusal contact force which cannot be detected visually, nor with articulating paper markings.
  • The clinician can then use the digital occlusal data to guide the necessary occlusal adjustments that can optimize the orthodontic outcome. 
  • This lecture reviews T-Scan 10 use in Orthodontics, with clinical examples that highlight T-Scan implementation following tooth movement.
