Abstract

Occlusion analysis is important to analyze any disharmony in occlusion. It constituted a great difficulty to analyze the problems arising from occlusal origins due to the complex nature of the human occlusal system. The search for the most atraumatic dental occlusion is growing demand and it lead to development of T-scan. It provides both qualitative and quantitative assessment of occlusion. Instead of the former messy qualitative carbon marks and it is presented in a video (movie) format. The system makes it simple to operate, dynamic viewing of occlusion, timed analysis of force during various positions of teeth contact and the possibility of permanent documentation and monitoring of the occlusal condition after carrying on the various treatment protocols. The T-Scan presents a valuable method for clinical evaluation and understanding of the occlusal problems. The purpose of this review paper is to provide an overview of system over its utility in advance treatment modalities.
