Abstract

Although measurement of maximum voluntary biting force is an important indicator of health of the masticatory system, few commercially available transducers have been validated for routine clinical use. The T-Scan III system records distribution of relative forces around the tooth row during clenching, but not absolute forces. This study assesses the reliability of T-Scan sensors with and without protection materials and develops calibration curves that allow measurement of absolute forces with the T-Scan III.
