A New Fully Automated System Design For Evaluation Of Standardized And Reproducible Data In Intraoral Photography Of Gingiva
In spite of advanced and high technology, there is still some problems for positioning head and chin of dental patients during photographic recording. Furthermore, it is very important to get reproduciable photographic data for the evaluation of the dental treatment. In this study, a new designed system method is being introduced for the collection of standardized intraoral photographs and computer-assisted measurement of reproducible data. However, PLC based fully automated a photograpic device for fully automated intraoral photography and standart protocol for the mucogingival complex is also presented. However, the proposed fully automated system is consisted of camera equipment with two directions and head supporting linear sliding mechanism with two directions of Z axes and X axes.
