|20120236135||Intraoral Occlusion Measurement and Registration - Methods and apparatus for registration of digital images of a plurality of dental surfaces of a patient. Multiple dental surfaces are separately scanned and digitized, where each of the surfaces has at least one marked area. All marked areas are optically acquired, creating digitized images of the plurality of dental surfaces, which are then registered in a common reference frame on the basis of a specified marked areas. In some cases, a first dental surface is disposed on an upper dental arch and a second dental surface is disposed on a lower dental arch. Marked contact areas may be indicative of local occlusion pressure.||09-20-2012|
|20110019155||Method and Apparatus for Real-Time Projection onto an Object of Data Obtained from 3-D Measurement - Methods and apparatus for projecting a tangible image of data characterizing an object onto a surface of the object itself. Three-dimensional measurements of the object are obtained, the measurements are processed for projection, and a tangible image is projected onto the object, the image conveying information based on the three-dimensional measurements. The image may be projected concurrently with performance of measurements. In an exemplary dental context, information derived in part from three-dimensional measurements of a tooth or replica may be projected onto the actual tooth or replica. In interactive application, a work piece is be measured during the course of fabrication, and three-dimensional information, derived from contemporaneous non-contact measurement, is projected onto the work piece in order to direct the user with the formation of the work piece.||01-27-2011|
|20090254299||Dental Prosthesis Fabrication Based on Local Digitization of a Temporary - A system and methods for obtaining and processing data requisite for fabrication of a dental restorative prosthesis. A dental temporary is fashioned at a site of patient treatment, and fitted in the patient's mouth. The temporary is then characterized by three-dimensional digital data based on distances measured by means of three-dimensional co-ordinate measuring equipment. The three-dimensional data are transmitted to a fabrication site, where a prosthesis may be fabricated. Additionally, information based upon the three-dimensional digital data characterizing the temporary may also be provided to a dentist at the site of patient treatment. The prosthesis design may be edited prior to fabrication.||10-08-2009|
