Paper Abstract

This paper summarizes three recent applications of computer vision techniques in dentistry developed at the Czech Technical University. The first one uses a special optical instrument to capture the image of the tooth arc directly in the patient's mouth. The captured images are used for visualization of teeth position changes during treatment. The second application allows the use of images for checking teeth occlusal contacts and their abrasion. The third application uses photometric measurements to study the resistance of the dental material against microbial growth.
