Paper Abstract

Many attempts to introduce computer technology into the field of dentistry have been actively developed. Process prosthetics demands precise qualitative and quantitative estimations of information in dental topography. Procedures of laser holography and coherent optics permit us to carry out noncontactive topographical recording of the surface form of a subject under investigation. In the present study the precise 3D shape measurement of the abutment and other teeth was attempted by using a He-Ne laser displacement meter and a computer controlled scanning system of model teeth.
