The purpose of this preliminary report was to describe the operating procedure of T-scan system and to identify the location, timing and force of occlusal contact in patient with normal occlusion using computerized T-scan system. From the preliminary observation , the author obtained the following results. 1. T-scan system displayed 2 dimensional and 3 dimensional description of occlusion: contact locations, timing (sequence) and forces of occlusal contacts. 2. The T-scan sensor was the most important part of the T-scan system. 3. The data of T-scan system cannot be stored in computer diskett. 4. The T-scan system is thought to be the most effective system to detect occlusal contacts and can be applied to the followings : occlusal diagnosis, occlusal equilibration, crown and bridge restorative procedures, denture adjustment, implant procedures, splint adjustment, laboratory procedures, periodontal treatment, orthodontics, TMJ treatment and patient education etc.
