Modern medicine is changing drastically as new technologies emerge to transform the way in which patients are diagnosed, treated, and monitored. In particular, dental medicine is experiencing a tremendous shift as new digital innovations are integrated into dental practice.
The Handbook of Research on Computerized Occlusal Analysis Technology Applications in Dental Medicine explores the use of digital tools in dentistry, including their evolution as well as evidence-based research on the benefits of technological tools versus non-digital occlusal indicators. Comprised of current research on clinical applications and technologies, this publication is ideal for use by clinicians, educators, and upper-level students in dentistry.
This book discusses the application of computerized occlusal analysis technology as a solution to many commonly observed and frequently encountered occlusal problems that practicing clinicians regularly attempt and struggle to manage. This is one of the first books on the use of digital evaluation of occlusion and it will serve as a measure for future books in this area. --

About the Author
Robert B. Kerstein received his DMD degree in 1983 and his Prosthodontic certificate in 1985, both from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. From 1985 - 1998, he maintained an active appointment at Tufts as a Clinical Professor teaching Fixed and Removable Prosthodontics in the Department of Restorative Dentistry. In 1984, Dr. Kerstein began studying the original T Scan I technology, and has since that time, also studied the T-Scan II, the T-Scan III with Turbo Recording, and presently the T-Scan 8 technology. Dr. Kerstein has conducted original research regarding the role that occlusion and lengthy Disclusion Time plays in the etiology of Chronic Myofascial Pain Dysfunction Syndrome. His now 30 years of work with the T Scan III Occlusal Analysis System has led to his becoming a leading author and researcher in the field of Computerized Occlusal Analysis. Dr. Kerstein has published 45 peer-reviewed publications that have appeared in the
Journal of Prosthetic Dentistry, the
Journal of Craniomandibular and Sleep Practice,
Practical Periodontics and Aesthetic Dentistry, the
Journal of Computerized Dentistry, the
Compendium of Continuing Education, the
Journal of Implant Advanced Clinical Dentistry,
Cosmetic Dentistry, and the
Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Implants. Additionally, Dr. Kerstein has authored 4 textbook chapters that highlighted the T-Scan Computerized Occlusal Analysis technology. Dr. Kerstein has lectured both nationally and internationally regarding Computerized Occlusal Analysis, Prosthetic Dentistry, Anterior Guidance, and the relationship between Long Disclusion Time, Excursive Muscle Hyperactivity, and Myofascial Pain Dysfunction Syndrome. He also maintains a successful private practice in Boston, Massachusetts, that is limited to Prosthodontics, Computerized Occlusal Analysis, and Myofascial Pain Dysfunction.
