TEETHAN IS AN INNOVATIVE INSTRUMENT FOR THE FUNCTIONAL ANALYSIS OF THE DENTAL OCCLUSION THAT ALLOWS THE ASSESSMENT OF THE ACTIVITY OF THE MAIN MASTICATORY MUSCLES: THE FRONT TEMPORAL AND THE MASSETER.
To measure the balance of the dental occlusion, the patient must do two clenches of 5 seconds each, the first with the salivary rollers, the second without. The test ends after the two clenches and the easy-to-read report is generated. the test can be repeated in a few minutes every time. The exam provides 5 main indices useful for the analysis of the occlusal condition and the related normal range is available for each index:
Percentage overlap coefficient - POC
Torsion - TORS
Muscular work - IMPACT
Asymmetry - ASIM
The exam allows an evaluation of the neuromuscular coordination in a dynamic condition, i.e. during the chewing act. The test involves two tests of 15 seconds each, performed by chewing a chewing-gum, involving first the right side and then the left side of the mouth.
The following indices are considered from the analysis of the tests:
