Dragon’s tooth implant research has been on the rise, with the first results being published in the peer-reviewed medical journal Science in July 2017.
Now, researchers have found a new way to find out what your teeth look like using a computer.
The technique uses a technique called optical microscopy to create images of your teeth using a microscope lens.
This can reveal a great deal about the structure of your jaw and jawbone, as well as the way your teeth communicate with each other, according to the University of Oxford’s Dr Daniel Wessels.
“This technique will allow us to identify the structure, shape and function of the dental cartilage and cartilage of patients in the future,” Dr Wessel, lead author of the study, told TechRadars.
The research was conducted by Dr Wsels and his colleagues from the Department of Dentistry at the University’s School of Dentition and Oral Biology, as part of the Oxford Bioengineering Lab.
The project, published in Scientific Reports, used a system called ImageStabilisation.
It involves stitching together images from different cameras, such as an iPad Pro or a Samsung Galaxy S7.
The images can then be fed into a computer, which uses a computer vision algorithm to reconstruct a 3D reconstruction of your face.
The team also analysed images taken from other sites, including dental surgeons’ offices, to create the final 3D model.
Dr Wessel explained the system was developed with the goal of providing better results.
“It is very simple, it works on very small images, it can take five to 10 seconds to stitch together, and you can then stitch together with a simple colour filter,” he said.
“We are able to see more clearly what the structure is and what the shape of the cartilage is, which is something we had previously only been able to do with 3D models.”
Dr Wess said the process was still in its infancy, and that further work was needed to understand the precise role the optical microscope plays in this process.
“For the first time we have been able do this using optical microscopes,” he told Techradars.
“The first results were not as good as we hoped, but the technology is still there and we are working to develop it further.”
Dr Daniel Wess from the Oxford Biotechnology Lab says optical microscopically stitching together teeth could be a new tool for understanding their structure and function.
“As a tooth grows, it gets progressively stronger, and in the past we have used optical microscometers to look at the cartilages of animals, but in this case we have a more powerful, more powerful microscope,” he explained.
“So it’s very exciting that we are able now to create 3D images of these structures.”
If we are to identify which tooth is a weak link, or which tooth needs attention, we are going to have to look more closely at these structures, because we have not been able so far to identify what’s going on.
“He said the technology was already being used in a number of different areas, such the treatment of cancer, where researchers are looking at how to help patients who have been diagnosed with cancer.”
Our goal is to have this technique used by other people in the next five years,” he added.
