Accurate registration and feasible fusion of a three-dimensional (3D) photorealistic surface images (captured using the FaceSCAN3D® Scientific Photo Lab) from multislice spiral computed tomography (MSCT) images is important to achieve optimal craniomaxillofacial surgery outcomes; thus, the aim of this work was to optimize this process. MSCT and 3D facial(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the value of cone-beam CT (CBCT) in the diagnosis and orientation of supernumerary teeth in the anterior maxilla. METHODS 195 supernumerary teeth in the anterior maxilla of 146 patients were included, which were examined by CBCT. The number, shape, size, 3-dimensional position, growth direction of the supernumeraries and their(More)
