Revista clínica de periodoncia, implantología y rehabilitación oral

On-line version ISSN 0719-0107


ABARZA ARELLANO, Liliann; SANDOVAL VIDAL, Paulo  and  FLORES VELASQUEZ, Marco. Digital interocclusal registration in oral rehabilitation using the "T-Scan® III System": A literature review. Rev. Clin. Periodoncia Implantol. Rehabil. Oral [online]. 2016, vol.9, n.2, pp.95-101. ISSN 0719-0107.

The aim of this review is to describe and understand how the occlusal forces are measured and recorded using an intraoral transducer system, T-Scan® III. An analysis was made of the accuracy and reliability of the device, using the results of recent studies found in the PubMed database using the digital method of recording occlusal indications and clinical application in the analysis of the relationships of the teeth in occlusions before and after oral rehabilitation treatments, where the balance of occlusal forces is essential for long-term success. The method used consisted of a non-systematic review in PubMed. Ten articles were found that met the inclusion criteria. After reviewing the literature, it can be concluded that the method of occlusal analysis with T-Scan® III is suitable as a diagnostic device for measuring relative occlusal forces in both static and dynamic jaw positions. There is only one study that indicates that it is more accurate than paper recordings. However, more clinical and/or experimental studied are required for greater certainty of its incorporation into routine clinical practice in oral rehabilitation.
