The evaluation of occlusion using digital methods is easier and simpler in terms of recording, comparison, analysis, and objectivity compared to existing methods such as articulating paper and occlusion foil. The purpose of this case report was utilizing the digital method for evaluating occlusion. The occlusion of patient requiring full veneer crown restoration was evaluated using an intraoral scanner (i500, Medit, Seoul, Korea) at every visit. The occlusion was also assessed using conventional articulating paper and a digital occlusal analysis system (Dental prescale II, GC corp., Tokyo, Japan) for comparison. Throughout the treatment process, the intraoral scanner and the conventional articulating paper method showed similar outcomes. The results suggest that the use of digital evaluation system is highly probable in the near future.
