Abstract

Full automation of the designing process of an occlusal splint requires an algorithm to determine the boundary of the splint. For this purpose, the idea of tooth equator is frequently used. The task is to find the approximate level where the teeth are widest, and then cut off the shape of the splint there. The article presents methods for automatic estimation of the tooth equator, used to determine the splint boundary.
