Journal of Clinical Orthodontics (JCO): “The Diagnostic Advantage of a CBCT-Derived Segmented STL Rendition of the Teeth and Jaws Using an AI Algorithm”

We are proud to share this JCO article by Chen Lewit Borohovitz DMD, Zeev Abraham BDS, MS and W. Ronald Redmond DDS, MS. 

The article focuses on the diagnostic advantage of CBCT-derived teeth and jaws segmentation using AI.
It discusses how artificial intelligence can improve treatment outcomes, patient communication and treatment plans, and why the full segmentation of the teeth,
the bones, and the mandibular nerve can contribute to detecting different types of risks and damages to the teeth.

The article demonstrates the capabilities of visualizing virtual extraction of obstructing and overlying teeth and how that has changed the perspective of orthodontics.
It discusses how advanced AI technology provides better management of impactions and why transforming CBCT DICOM file into an STL model allows for better treatment planning.

The helpful information that can be obtained from segmentation of a CBCT scan allows us to see each tooth as an individual and examine it closer.
In addition, it offers a 360-degree visualization of the patients’ teeth.
Generally, AI technology assists in performing time-consuming tasks that are impossible to accomplish manually.

(The article uses the Cephx.com web viewer to visualize the treatment planning of two case studies).

Case of impacted Canines created with Cephx AI algorithms

Dr. Yassin Messaoudi (Specialist Orthodontist).

This case illustrates the contribution of the 3D segmentation technology (segmented STL of CBCT performed by the CephX AI algorithm), to manage impacted canines.

A 15 years old patient at the first consultation

 

A CBCT was performed to clarify the anatomic situation of 23, and to search for any root resorption of 21-22.

 

 

   

Together with the surgeon it was decided to go for uncovering and autonomous eruption technic introduced by Dr. Kokich.
The Cephx AI software is very promising for quick global overview of the situation.
