Abstract: Background: Dental implantology has emerged as treatment of choice for missing tooth replacement. Implant occlusion is a dominant factor which affects implant success. Various practices are there for occlusal consideration and its adjustment like articulating paper and T scan for regularly employed in clinics. Very less literature is available on effectiveness of better method for occlusal correction. Objectives: To assess and analyze efficacy of occlusal equilibration using computerized analysis at various time intervals to evaluate the crestal bone loss around single posterior implants. Methods: This study will be performed on 50 partially edentulous patients with single posterior missing tooth will be selected. Implant with two-stage protocol will be placed. Primary stability at first stage surgery and secondary stability at second stage surgery will be evaluated. Immediately after loading of implant CBCT will be taken to evaluate base line crestal bone level, with cement retained PFM crown. In study group T scan is used as intervention. CBCT will be taken after 12 months of placement of implant prosthesis to evaluate crestal bone level for all patients. Results: Statistical significance of the mean differences between the measurements in the interval of 12 months will be tested with Student’s paired t-test, Chi square test, and unpaired t test. Conclusion: Periodic equilibration using T scan will be an effective protocol to control the further crestal bone loss. There by this procedure will also be addressing the complication in occlusal consideration in implantology, eventually result in implant success.
