RESEARCH 

1989 - Present     Computer Reconstruction of CT Serial Cross-sections of Extracted Human Teeth

400 cross-sectional images of each tooth are stacked and integrated into transparent

3-D computer models allowing simultaneous viewing of internal and external root anatomy.  This is a long-term study that will include several thousand teeth to create a 3-D anatomic database.  In one application, this database will enable students to “fly” through hundreds of root canals before treating a single patient.  It will also provide researchers with accurate computer models of teeth for comparative anatomic analysis, stress analysis of restorative systems, and hydrodynamic analysis of root canal irrigants.
