In the past, individuals in the dentistry field have struggled to diagnose and treat a variety of dental diseases due to the lack of digital methods involved in the field. Modern technology offers solutions to the many commonly observed and frequently encountered occlusal problems that practicing dental clinicians regularly attempt to manage.

The Handbook of Research on Clinical Applications of Computerized Occlusal Analysis in Dental Medicine aims to provide a research-based clinical resource for computerized occlusal analysis technology while also serving as a complete clinical treatment guide to support clinicians in achieving significantly better treatment outcomes than what often presently result from non-digital occlusal indicators. This three-volume compilation has been contributed to by over 20 industry-leading dentistry experts, containing over 800+ full-color figures/charts in addition to many modern-day digital occlusion research studies. This book chronicles computerized occlusal analysis' evolution and improvements, details its evidence-based rationale for employing this technology in place of traditional, non-digital occlusal indicators that rely solely on imprecise operator subjective interpretation, and describes the T-Scan’s many clinical applications within the differing practice disciplines of dental medicine. While highlighting topics that include T-Scan use in orthodontics and dental implants, this book is ideally designed for clinicians, dentists, dental educators, practitioners, researchers, dental students, and academics working in prosthodontics, occlusion, esthetics, temporomandibular disorders, dental implant prosthodontics, periodontics, orthodontics, and posture and balance.

Topics Covered

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Arch-Half Occlusal Force Balance
  • Dental Implants and T-Scan
  • Digitally Measured Occlusion
  • Disclusion Time Reduction
  • Force and Timing Occlusal Analysis Technology
  • Hypersensitive Dentition
  • Orthodontic Monitoring With T-Scan
  • Prosthodontic Insertion Using T-Scan
  • Temporomandibular Disorders
  • Wear, Periodontal Recession, and Occlusal Forces

"Second Edition Dental Research Handbook Validates the Use of T-Scan™ Technology for Assessing and Measuring Occlusion", Cision PR Newswire

"The release of the Handbook of Research on Clinical Applications of Computerized Occlusal Analysis in Dental Medicine (3 volumes), edited by Dr. Robert B. Kerstein, DMD, with contributions from 20 industry-leading research and dentistry experts from around the world, is undeniable evidence that measuring occlusion with T-Scan digital occlusal analysis system is becoming the standard of care for dental practitioners worldwide."

Hear From the Experts of the Publication

"Some dentists are afraid of using computer technology or other modern technologies that they are not familiar with, or may feel that the old clinical methods of hands-on diagnosis are good enough. Clinical methods are sufficient for routine cases, but not for those patients with complex dysfunctional conditions. Every dentist that accepts the challenge of treating complex cases can benefit from the extra diagnostic and treatment planning information that modern technology can bring to the case, [which is found in this book]."

"The chapter, Understanding Posturo-Occlusal Interrelationships by Combining Digital Occlusal and Posture Diagnostic Technologies, in the Handbook of Research on Clinical Applications of Computerized Occlusal Analysis in Dental Medicine, introduces the concept of posture from the perspective of dental occlusion through clinical case examples documented objectively with Biometrics. It brings to light the existing relationship of dental occlusion and posture with undeniable evidences and measures. The digital technologies bring attestations that cannot be ignored or refuted by opinions. The facts speak loud and clear about the existence of a posture-occlusal interrelationship!"

Book Reviews

"Although the peer-reviewed Handbook of Research on Clinical Applications of Computerized Occlusal Analysis in Dental Medicine is not intended specifically for researchers in the field of tooth occlusion, the authors make it ideal for documenting the occlusal function in the learning environment, which is the main advantage of the handbook. I was very interested in the materials in Section 3, “Digital Technologies That Complement the T-Scan System." The chapters of this section are the most interesting and are aimed at the future of stomatology. As an engineering specialist, I was very interested in everything that was aimed at using digital technologies. At the same time, I was convinced that stomatology was still lagging behind other areas in terms of digitalization as most stomatologists still work using the old methods...Therefore, I believe that the companion book will be in demand among specialists who are looking forward and not backward."
