Abstract

Oral stereognosis (form or shape recognition in the oral cavity) can be utilized to assess oral perceptual abilities. This assessment can be beneficial in planning as well as predicting the future outcome of any treatment modality in the orodental region. This article provides a meta analysis of different studies conducted in the last fifty years to quantify magnitude of oral sensory capacity using oral stereognostic ability tests and their implication in clinical dental sciences.
