Comparative Study on Methods for Teeth Image Recognition

D G patil, N M patil


This article proposes a new method to find a specific tooth from the digital picture of multiple teeth. The modified methods can significantly simplify the pattern recognition process for teeth. Here we compared some of the popular recognition method like principal component analysis (PCA) and hybrid differential method (HDM). These methods are lot more simple, runs faster and the identification rate is better. These approaches will reduce the traditional reliance on X-ray image to get information and make dental decision. It can be used in the dental decision making software to do preliminary dental advising for potential patients.
