COURSE TITLE

Comprehensive Dentistry Using the T-Scan

 

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Occlusion is a complex neurologic science that involves the interplay between the teeth, the muscles and the temporomandibular joints. Occlusion, however, is taught biomechanically, absent of true interocclusal functional measurements of the occlusal force and timing of the contacts that affects patient’s neurologic health and comfort every time they use their teeth. The T-Scan™ system makes it possible to precisely control the occlusal forces and timing with natural teeth, dental implants, and prosthodontic restorations. The T-Scan offers patients predictably improved outcomes, while minimizing the common fallout of a dentist’s lack of occlusal measurement; and the repeated post-prosthetic insertion occlusal adjustments that don’t resolve the patient’s comfort issues, despite the dentist’s best efforts. This course will illustrate how employing occlusal measurement technology, and an evidence-based digital approach to occlusion, helps dentists provide lasting, comfortable and successful treatments for patients in everyday clinical practice.

 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

How T-Scan, by measuring occlusal contact forces and timing, has revolutionized day-to-day occlusal dentistry, offering both dentists and patients occlusal outcome predictability.

  • Discover the real limitations of using articulating papers, and why intraoral scanner occlusion does not replace using T-Scan at prosthetic insertions.
  • How to record good T-Scan data and how to use that data to make targeted occlusal corrections.
  • A review of important scientific studies and evidence to support the routine use of digital occlusion technology, and what the research means to your patients.
  • Common complications in restorative, cosmetic, and implant dentistry – a review of many clinical cases and how to digitally diagnose and treat common occlusal problems.

Dr. Ben A. Sutter has been studying and treating TMJ dysfunction since graduating from Rutgers School of Dental Medicine in 2005. He completed a General Practice Residency at Overlook Hospital in Summit, NJ in 2006 and currently practices general dentistry as a solo, private practice owner in Eugene, OR.

He has sought advanced education and training in treating neuromuscular issues as well as occlusion. His studies have taken him to the Las Vegas Institute, the Piper Education and Research Center, Perfect Bite Doctor, TruDenta, and Equilibration Seminars. He has earned Fellowship status in the Academy of General Dentistry, Las Vegas Institute, and the Center for Neural Occlusion. He is a Diplomate of the American Board of Laser Surgery and was awarded Mastership in the International College of Craniomandibular Orthopedics.

Dr Sutter has been actively using T-Scan clinically in his office since 2009. He is the author and co-author of over 30 peer reviewed articles and abstracts on Digital Occlusion and Disclusion Time Reduction (DTR). Most notable is a book chapter he published in the Handbook of Research on Clinical Applications of Computerized Occlusal Analysis in Dental Medicine titled “Complex Medical Diagnoses with An Underlying Dental Etiology.” He has clinical, research, and teaching experience and brings a wealth of knowledge to any discussion on Physiologic Occlusion.
