  • 1. INDIAN DENTAL ACADEMY Leader in continuing dental education www.indiandentalacademy.com www.indiandentalacademy.com 1
  • 2. Magnetic Resonance Imaging A type of emission imaging Essentially imaging of water in the tissue www.indiandentalacademy.com 2
  • 3. Magnetic Resonance Imaging Principle www.indiandentalacademy.com 3
  • 4. Magnetic Resonance Imaging When images are displayed; intense signals show as white and weak ones as black . Intermediate as shades of gray. Cortical bone and teeth with low presence of hydrogen are poorly imaged and appear black. www.indiandentalacademy.com 4
  • 5. Magnetic Resonance Imaging MRI can clearly differentiate the soft tissue components Preferred imaging technique when information regarding the articular disc or the presence of adhesions,or joint effusion is desired www.indiandentalacademy.com 5
  • 6. Magnetic Resonance Imaging Indications Assessing diseases of the TMJ Cleft lip and palate Tonsillitis and adenoiditis Cysts and infections Tumors www.indiandentalacademy.com 6
  • 7. Magnetic Resonance Imaging Contraindications  Patients with cardiac pacemakers.  Patients with cerebral metallic aneurysm clips. Slight movement of the clip could produce bleeding  Stainless steel and other metals produce artifacts ; obliterate image details of the facial area. www.indiandentalacademy.com 7
  • 8. Magnetic Resonance Imaging Shortcomings Inability to identify ligament tears or perforations Dynamics of tissue joint not possible Cannot be used in patients suffering from claustrophobia. www.indiandentalacademy.com 8
  • 9. 3D Imaging Historical perspective www.indiandentalacademy.com 9
  • 10. 3D Imaging Necessity - Our pts. are 3D therefore we need to record their morphology in 3D - Drawbacks of cephalometrics 2 dimensional representation of a 3 dimensional object www.indiandentalacademy.com 10
  • 11. 3D Imaging With dimensionally accurate records, not only can t/t be planned and simulated,but implemented through methods such as computerized wire bending & fabrication of appliances by CAD/CAM Development of future technologies and approaches to Orthodontics www.indiandentalacademy.com 11
  • 12. Basic principles of 3D imaging Two main geometrical strategies 1. Orthogonal measurement 2. Measurement by triangulation 1. Orthogonal – Location of 3rd dimension(z) by a technique separate from that used to measure the other two dimensions.(x & y) - Object sliced in layers – physically or optically www.indiandentalacademy.com 12
  • 13. Basic principles of 3D imaging 2. Triangulation Images captured from two positions www.indiandentalacademy.com 13
  • 14. Methods of 3D Facial Imaging LASER (Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation) Structured light Laser scanner - Scanner record distortion of projected laser pattern on the face to provide a’ surface map’ www.indiandentalacademy.com 14
  • 15. Methods of 3D Facial Imaging - Simultaneously image is recorded by a digital - camera This image is layered over the surface map www.indiandentalacademy.com 15
  • 16. Methods of 3D Facial Imaging Structured Light - Projection of a structure of lines or grids onto the face - As the projected pattern is distorted by the contours of face, this distorted pattern is recorded by a digital camera www.indiandentalacademy.com 16
  • 17. Obtaining 3D Dental Models Destructive scanning Non destructive scanning Destructive scanning - Variant of orthogonal slicing method - Study cast is invested in a solid matrix of contrasting colour -Surface of the block is then sliced parallel to the occlusal plane - Laser scan of the 2D surface is made - An additional 0.003” layer of the block is ground www.indiandentalacademy.com 17 away and another scan is made
  • 18. Obtaining 3D Dental Models Non destructive scanning - Laser stripe is projected on the surface of plaster cast and distortion pattern is recorded by a digital camera www.indiandentalacademy.com 18
  • 19. 3D Craniofacial Skeletal Imaging Anatomic Reconstructions Computed Tomography Scans Cone Beam Computed Tomography www.indiandentalacademy.com 19
  • 20. 3D Craniofacial Skeletal Imaging Anatomic Reconstructions (CRIL Method) - Integrated 3D model of the craniofacial structures is formed using lat.&fro. ceph; photographs & 3D models of dental casts. - Equipments – i. Calibrated stereo x ray device ii. Calibrated stereo camera iii. 3D models of study casts from Align Technology www.indiandentalacademy.com 20
  • 21. • Step 1 – generating 3D dental models of upp & low teeth and creating Tiepoint bearing aligners - Tie points are reference points (like implants of Bjork) which facilitates merging of images www.indiandentalacademy.com 21
  • 22. • Step 2 – placing facial Tie points • Step 3 – generating a 3D photographic model of the face www.indiandentalacademy.com 22
  • 23. • Step 4 – generating a 3D x ray model of the craniofacial skeleton www.indiandentalacademy.com 23
  • 24. • Step 5 - Merging the several 3D models - The CRIL software is used to merge the data in a single frame of reference - At least 3 common tie-points are required in each overlapping www.indiandentalacademy.com 24
  • 25. • Step 6 – Viewing the integrated 3 Dimensional model The resulting 3D craniofacial model is viewed interactively using Align’s TREAT software www.indiandentalacademy.com 25
  • 26. 3D Craniofacial Skeletal Imaging Computed Tomography Scans - Post processing software allows for reconstruction of transverse slices in any plane www.indiandentalacademy.com 26
  • 27. 3D Craniofacial Skeletal Imaging Cone Beam Computed Tomography - Like conventional CT but various modifications are done to optimize them for craniofacial imaging - Reduced chamber volume just enough for head and neck - Real time feed back betn sensor and X ray source - Cone beam projection of x rays - Radiation exposure – 20%of conventional CT - Precision of 0.28mm which 5-10 times more www.indiandentalacademy.com 27
  • 28. Softwares for Orthodontics • Many companies have developed softwares to help the Orthodontist in diagnosis and treatment planning - Dentofacial planner - Vistadent - Sure smile - Dr.Ceph - Digiceph - eModels - OrthoCAD www.indiandentalacademy.com 28
  • 29. OrthoCAD Diagnosis Space analysis Treatment simulations- tooth movement,extn,occlusal contacts www.indiandentalacademy.com 29
  • 30. Invisalign • What is invisalign? - Invisible alignment of the teeth - An invisible way to align the teeth • Uses a series of clear removable aligners to straighten teeth without metal wires or brackets. • Developed by Align Technology,CA www.indiandentalacademy.com 30
  • 31. Impressions are made using Polyvinyl Siloxane After wearing all of the aligners in the series, Impression and bite send along with a detailed treatment plan. advanced imaging technology transforms plaster models into a highly accurate 3-D digital image. A computerized movie called ClinCheck® depicting the movement of teeth from the beginning to the final position is created. Procedure customized set of aligners are made from From the approved file, these models, sent to the laser scanning to build a doctor, and given to the set Invisalign® uses of patient. Pt to wear each actual models that reflect aligner for about two each stage of the weeks. www.indiandentalacademy.com treatment plan. Using the Internet, the doctor reviews the ClinCheck file - if necessary, adjustments to the depicted plan are 31 made.
  • 32. Invisalign www.indiandentalacademy.com 32
  • 33. Invisalign Patient gets the first aligner 6 weeks after the 1st visit Most treatments require 20 – 60 aligners  Worn for 2 weeks each Should be taken off only for eating and brushing www.indiandentalacademy.com 33
  • 34. Invisalign • Limitations Patients with severe malocclusions cannot be treated Children,mixed dentition – growing jaws and erupting teeth too complicated for the computer to model No precise control over root movements www.indiandentalacademy.com 34
