IGI Global's Free Content Book Chapter for the Month of July

The Evolution of the T-Scan I System From 1984 to the Present Day T-Scan 10 System

By Anne Long on Aug 5, 2019
Building upon the previous best-selling publication, the Handbook of Research on Computerized Occlusal Analysis Technology Applications in Dental Medicine (2 Volumes), edited by Dr. Robert B. Kerstein, from Tufts University and Private Dental Practice Limited to Prosthodontics, USA, his new publication, the Handbook of Research on Clinical Applications of Computerized Occlusal Analysis in Dental Medicine (3 Volumes), is revolutionizing dental medicine and clinical practice through its innovative, applied research. Through Dr. Kerstein’s experience and insight, IGI Global partnered with Tekscan®, a manufacturer of tactile pressure sensing technologies and systems, and the creators of the T-Scan™ digital occlusal analysis system, to integrate this research and these publications into their dental programs and professional development initiatives. You can learn more about the publication and this partnership here.

As IGI Global is committed to ensuring that forward-thinking knowledge is easily accessible to the global research community, and due to the critical nature of the research within this publication, this month's complimentary book chapter through IGI Global's Free Content Program is:

“The Evolution of the T-Scan I System From 1984 to the Present Day T-Scan 10 System”

Edited by Robert B. Kerstein, DMD (Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, USA & Private Dental Practice Limited to Prosthodontics, USA)

Chapter Abstract: Since its inception in 1984, Computerized Occlusal Analysis technology has revolutionized both dental Occlusal Science and daily clinical practice, by bringing objective precision measurement to the largely subjectively analyzed Dental Medicine discipline of Occlusion. The development of this technology has required much iteration over the past 30 years beginning with T-Scan I, then T-Scan II for Windows®, then T-Scan III with Turbo recording, to a simplified desktop version introduced in T-Scan 8, to the present-day, state-of-the-art occlusal analysis version known as T-Scan 10. Numerous authors since the mid-1980s have studied the various T-Scan versions, which inspired the manufacturer to improve the hardware and its recording sensors to be more accurate, repeatable, and precise. The present day Novus recording handle represents a major ergonomic and functional upgrade over the Evolution handle that was used up to T-Scan 8, while the T-Scan 9 software has evolved into T-Scan software Version 10, which includes many new high-tech measurement tools like the Digital Impression Overlay (DIO), the Sensitivity Wizard, the Implant Warning feature, and the Force Eraser tool. All of these new system modifications improve the clinician's ability to diagnose and treat a wide range of occlusal abnormalities. Chapter One's Specific Aims are to detail the evolution of the differing T-Scan system versions, while describing the many scientific studies that inspired important system improvements to the T-Scan's accuracy and repeatability, from version to version.

By Robert B. Kerstein, DMD (Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, USA & Private Dental Practice Limited to Prosthodontics and Computerized Occlusal Analysis, USA)

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. With over 800+ full-color figures/charts and research that has been contributed by over 20 industry-leading dentistry experts, the book will chronicle its evolution and improvements, detail 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 describe the TScan’s many clinical applications within the differing practice disciplines of dental medicine. While highlighting topics including orthodontics, this book is ideally designed for clinicians, dentists, dental educators, practitioners, researchers, students, and academics working in prosthodontics, occlusion, esthetics, temporomandibular disorders, dental implant prosthodontics, periodontics, orthodontics, and posture and balance.
