Abstract

While CT imaging is excellent for demonstrating bone structures, it is unable to display an accurate rendition of the teeth. To address this problem, a method of incorporating accurate teeth into the CT scan was developed. This method combined a 3D CT bone model with digital dental models creating a “precise skull model”. An experiment was completed to test the accuracy with which the digital dental models were incorporated into the CT bone models.
