The objective of this study was to analyze occlusal contact pattern of 33 young adult males with normal occlusion during lateral excursion using T-scan III system which can measure the dynamic occlusion. Occlusal contact patterns were examined and categorized in non-working side disclusion point(more functionally acceptable position) not canine-to-canine position. Disclusion time, occlusal force, and occlusal force distribution ratio of upper canine at disclusion point during lateral excursion movement was also measured and compared among the groups divided according to contact patterns. The results showed that group function was clearly more dominant than canine guidance and other occlusal contact patterns different with existing patterns were found. There were significantly difference between groups in variables of T-scan measurement. T-scan III system is effective tools to analyze and evaluate occlusal contact patterns, disclusion time, occlusal force, and occlusal force distribution ratio of upper canine at disclusion point.
