TEETHAN IS AN INNOVATIVE TOOL FOR THE FUNCTIONAL ANALYSIS OF DENTAL OCCLUSION. IT ALLOWS TO EVALUATE THE ACTIVITY OF THE MAIN MASTICATORY MUSCLES, ANTERIOR TEMPORALIS AND MASSETERS.


Three simple reasons


Digital Analysis

The exam consists of two tests to measure muscle activity in maximum intercuspidation: the first one is carried out by interposing two salivary cotton rolls between the upper and lower arch; the second one, carried out in natural intercuspidation, allows to detect the parameters of the occlusal plate. Each test lasts 5 seconds, at the end of which Teethan processes the values of the muscular activity recorded.

Report

At the end of the examination, the report generated by Teethan is extremely clear and of immediate interpretation. The graphic synthesis of the collected data allows the patient to understand, in a visual way, his occlusal condition and the necessary interventions to improve it.

Scientific Validity

Teethan's functions are based on 20-years-worth of scientific evidence and research: results have demonstrated the repeatability and reliability of the method and the scientific value of the indices obtained.

Two protocols


Occlusal Test - Static

It compares two maximum intercuspation tests, lasting 5 seconds each.

Chewing Test - Dynamic

It allows to evaluate the neuromuscular coordination in dynamic conditions, i.e. during the masticatory act.

OCCLUSAL TEST

STATIC

In order to measure dental occlusion's balance, the patient has to perform two 5-seconds-long clenching tests. The first is performed using cotton rolls, the second without. Test is completed after the two clenches. Then, an easy-to-interpret report is generated. The test can be easily repeated as it takes just few minutes each time. From the examination we obtain 5 main indices useful for the analysis of the occlusal state. For each index, the relative normality band is available:


Muscular work - IMPACT

It evaluates the intensity of muscle work of analyzed muscles, returning a parameter closely related to the strength of the bite. A very high work is an indication of a clenching patient, a very low one reveals the presence of nociceptive pain. Knowing the extent of muscle work is also particularly interesting for the research of the correct vertical dimension of the patient.


Asymmetry - ASIM

It compares the activity of right-sided muscles with left-sided muscles indicating any symmetry and allows identification of the dominant side on the patient's occlusal plane.


 

CHEWING TEST

DYNAMIC

It allows to evaluate the neuromuscular coordination in dynamic condition, that is during the chewing act. The test involves two trials of 15 seconds each, performed by a chewing gum, involving first the right side and then the left side of the mouth. From the analysis of the tests, the following indices are considered:
