Experimental: Dental imaging
4 incisors and 4 canine teeth of subjects were imaged with the experimental and the commercial device.
Diagnostic Test: Dental imaging
The target teeth positions for imaging included 4 incisors and all 4 canines. Only the vestibular and interproximal regions were of interest. Images were taken of these target teeth positions regardless of whether or not they exhibited plaque, consisted of full or partial restorations, contained major cracks/fractures, chips, or were missing. Other captured images included any abnormality of the tooth or gum exhibiting red fluorescence physically accessible by the devices.
- In focus images of all 4 incisors and all 4 canines using devices [ Time Frame: 5 minutes for each imaging device used in the study. ]Images of target teeth with imaging devices.
