Dr. Roger Solow on Presenting T-Scan Data to Patients

T-Scan occlusal analysis provides several unique and critically important advantages for the restorative dentist. During codiagnosis patients can visualize the 2D and 3D graphic force distributions showing problems that the patient felt but a dentist could not identify. They immediately understand what the occlusal problem is.

After splint delivery, equilibration, or restoration the T-Scan can objectively confirm a therapeutic occlusion.  The patient doesn’t have to tell the dentist where to adjust or what is wrong, which may be inaccurate information. An endpoint in treatment can be visualized and used as documentation in the report to the referring dentist. Patients and referring dentists see that my scientific understanding of the importance of occlusion is different from other offices.
