13 July 2009Occlusal overload investigations by noninvasive technology: fluorescence microscopy and en-face optical coherence tomography
The aim of this study is the early detection and monitoring of occlusal overload in bruxing patients. En-Face Optical
coherence tomography (eF-OCT) and fluorescence microscopy (FM) were used for the imaging of several anterior teeth
extracted from patients with light active bruxism. We found a characteristic pattern of enamel cracks, that reached the
tooth surface. We concluded that the combination of the en-Face OCT and FM is a promising non-invasive alternative
technique for reliable monitoring of occlusal overload.
