Introduction: Aim of study was to evaluate and compare the chewing efficiency of newly rehabilitated edentulous patient with balanced dentures. Objectives; 1) to record bite force marks on 'T' scan sensor sheet and compare it, immediately after denture insertion, 3 weeks after denture insertion and 6 weeks after denture insertion. 2) To evaluate chewing efficiency by scanning the 'T' scan sensor sheet with the help of Pressure Distribution Mapping Scanner, and pressure distribution mapping system software.

Methodology: The study involved a total number of twenty (20) edentulous subjects between 50-70 years of age group. Armamentarium is T-Scan II film used for Bite Scan, NUPAI brand, T-Scan Holders, Pressure Distribution Mapping Scanner and software (FPD-8010E), Stop watch. The changes in chewing efficiency after denture insertion were evaluated by recording masticatory force with the help of T –Scan sensor sheets. First T-Scan was recorded at the time of denture insertion; and subsequently second and third T- scans reading which were recorded after three and six weeks follow up period in the lab, result was analyzed for all samples on pressure distribution mapping scanner and software FPD-8010E.

Result: The bite scan score in left and right side increases slowly after adaptation of balanced denture at different follow-up. The increment of bite scan score is highly statistically significant (For left bite scan F=7.10, p=0.0018, and for right bite scan F=7.53, p=0.0012)

Conclusion: This study showed that there was significant improvement in masticatory efficiency in 2nd and 3rd follow up compare to the first follow up in both sides.
