T-Scan bite diagnostics

T-Scan bite diagnostics

Correct closing of the teeth of the two jaws is called bite, or occlusion. Any change, deformation of the occlusion leads to the fact that when chewing there is an uneven distribution of the load on the teeth. As a result – the erasure and destruction of enamel, crumbling of teeth, disabling orthopedic structures, the development of destructive processes of soft and hard tissues of the maxillofacial apparatus, temporomandibular joints.

To analyze the correctness of occlusion, the dentist uses the most accurate research method – T-SCAN. This is a type of computer diagnostics developed by Tekckan over 30 years ago. Leading dental clinics around the world use this technique in dental therapy, dental orthopedics and orthodontics. T-SCAN-diagnostics of bite in Dnipro is carried out by the dental clinic Amel Dental Clinic – the center of modern dentistry, recognized in the international community.

What is T-SCAN-diagnostics and why is it needed?

To check the quality of contact between the dentition during treatment and dental prosthetics, the dentist used carbon paper or special markers. These devices made it possible to identify problem areas (points of contact), where there is a violation of the bite. After that, the doctor solved the problem of malocclusion by grinding.

T-SCAN-diagnostics allows a deep analysis of the occlusion, helps to identify minimal deformities at the level of the general dentition. This information is relevant in cases where occlusion changes during treatment.


  • filling;
  • restoration;
  • installation of an implant (crowns, bridges);
  • installation of an artificial tooth (prosthetics).

To conduct the study, the patient clamps an individual sensor plate between the teeth. During this time, the state of occlusion, various abnormalities are displayed on the scanner monitor and then stored in digital format.

The T-SCAN apparatus is used to analyze occlusion in statics, dynamics, closure time and individual contact areas.

Thanks to digital diagnostics, the dentist can diagnose:

  • cross-bite – pathological deformity during development, differences in dentition in size and shape, which lead to problems of articulation, facial asymmetry, affect the normal functioning of the jaw apparatus;
  • deep bite – excessively protruding front incisors, which overlap the incisors of the lower row more than necessary, which adversely affects the function of chewing, speech, and leads to rapid erasure / destruction of teeth;
  • open bite – the location of the teeth in such a way that the upper and lower teeth (chewing or frontal) do not touch when the jaws are closed, as a result of which the patient experiences difficulty in chewing, in conversation, cannot fully close his lips, and has breathing problems.

All of these pathologies require long-term and serious orthodontic treatment. T-SCAN diagnostics helps the doctor to recreate a complete picture of occlusion disorders and to design an articulator for effective bite correction.

Benefits of T-SCAN diagnostics in occlusion research

Benefits of digital bite analysis for the doctor:

  • Diagnostic accuracy. The specialist sees the slightest occlusal changes in statics and dynamics – a result that cannot be obtained using other methods.
  • Informativeness and reliability. Based on the T-SCAN data, the dentist can draw up the most effective treatment program.
  • Improving work efficiency.
  • Providing the most comfortable conditions for the treatment of patients.

Benefits of T-SCAN diagnostics for patients:

  • Lack of discomfort. The study is carried out quickly and accurately reflects the state of occlusion.
  • Visibility. The diagnostic results are saved in the doctor’s computer, so he can demonstrate the results of the study to the patient and clearly explain the condition of the teeth, the plan for further treatment.
  • Eliminate the risk of traumatic occlusion. Even minor errors in the bite lead to an uneven distribution of loads between the teeth. And this provokes problems such as atrophy of gum tissue, inflammation of mucous tissues, teeth instability, reduced service life of crowns, veneers, and other implants, tooth decay, further deformation of occlusion, disturbances in the TMJ, severe headaches.

The accuracy of the diagnosis affects the quality of the doctor’s work, which, in turn, is a guarantee of the patient’s dental health.
