Using the Digital Occlusal Analysis (T-Scan NOVUS) in Diagnosis the MFDS in Iraqi Patients During Lateral Excursion Movements
Keywords:Occlusion time, disclusion time, occlusal force, MFDS, T-scan, OT, DT, lateral excursion.
The aim of the study is to evaluate the effectiveness of digital occlusal analysis (T- scan) in diagnosis
the patients with MFDS during lateral excursion movements. Method and materials: participants with full
dentition and angle class I relation. Patients diagnosed based on DC/TMD criteria, digital occlusal analysis
including (disclusion time, occlusion time) registered by T-Scan NOVUS device during the excursion
movements in both (Right and Left) sides. Results: Non-significant differences between the age groups, a
significant differences between the gender groups and the females were more prevalent than the males, all
the means values of occlusal parameters (disclusion time, occlusion time) were higher in MPDS patients
group than healthy control group, Highly significant difference according (disclusion time, occlusion time)
are documented between MPDS patients and the healthy control in lateral excursion movements (R &
L). Conclusion: This study concluded, that the digital occlusal analysis measured by T scan Novus devise
is a more accurate and objective method in diagnosis the patients with MPDS during lateral excursion
