Challenging the Dental Industry Standards

Hershey, PA—July 1, 2019- IGI Global, an international academic publisher, recently released the highly-anticipated title, Handbook of Research on Clinical Applications of Computerized Occlusal Analysis in Dental Medicine, edited by Dr. Robert B. Kerstein, DMD, from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine & Private Dental Practice Limited to Prosthodontics, USA.

Building upon the previous best-selling publication,Handbook of Research on Computerized Occlusal Analysis Technology Applications in Dental Medicine (2 Volumes), edited by Dr. Kerstein, this commanding three-volume publication has been contributed by 20 industry-leading researchers and dentistry experts from the United States, Germany, Canada, Poland and more. It contains over 800+ full-color figures and 19 comprehensive chapters covering the latest research in occlusal analysis technology, dental arch digitalization, digital occlusion, temporomandibular disorders, hypersensitive dentition, temporomandibular joint vibration analysis, orthodontic monitoring, orthodontics, periodontal treatment, implant and conventional prosthodontics, and related topics.

“My research is innovative and quite different from others in the same field because most researchers in these areas of study have chosen, over the past 35 years, to not utilize T-Scan™ data sets in their research,” stated Dr. Kerstein. “Alternatively, all of my research published since the late 1980’s has utilized T-Scan measurements and (in many studies) Electromyography measurements together…[providing] numbers, percentages, and technologically-derived data sets, which then were subjected to appropriate statistical analyses.”

Through this unique approach to Dr. Kerstein’s research and IGI Global’s dedication to publishing this advanced knowledge, 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.

“Over the last several decades, Dr. Kerstein has championed the message on the importance of including digital occlusal analysis technology as a critical part of a dentist’s treatment toolkit,” stated Ms. Jen Cullen, Business Development Manager for Tekscan’s Dental Division. “While occlusion remains a largely overlooked concept in dental schools and continuing education programs, Dr. Kerstein has made it his life’s work to teach dentists how to accurately assess and manage occlusion by using T-Scan technology, and the innumerable benefits it can provide to a patient’s well-being.

We are thrilled to partner with IGI Global in our support of Dr. Kerstein’s teachings and experiences,” continues Cullen. Through this partnership, IGI Global and Tekscan are ensuring that this publication is not only available to institutions worldwide, but the technology and research outlined in the publication is fully understood and made available to help transform dental practice and advance the methods of patient treatment.
Hear What the Experts are Saying About the Handbook of Research on Clinical Applications of Computerized Occlusal Analysis in Dental Medicine:

“The importance of peer-reviewed publications cannot be overstated. The advancement of sciences and dental medicine depends on the availability and dissemination of information. IGI Global has been dedicated for over three decades in providing a platform for scholars and clinicians to share their experiences, discoveries, and knowledge,” — Dr. Patrick Girouard, B.Sc., D.M.D., M.S., from Nova Scotia, Canada and the contributing author of the chapter “Understanding Posturo-Occlusal Interrelationships by Combining Digital Occlusal and Posture Diagnostic Technologies.”

“IGI Global has been an exceptional partner in the publishing of our book. They so well organized the whole process and the reviewers where competent creating a smooth transition. IGI Global was willing to handle very complex topics that other publishers shy away from, and did not dismiss our project simply because they had published a similar publication on the topic.”— Dr. John Radke from MS. Wisconsin, USA and contributing author of the chapter “Adding Technology to Diagnostic Methods.”
