  • Publication number: 20240065807
    Abstract: The present disclosure is directed to capturing a 3-dimensional representation of a patient's face from multiple angles to be integrated with (fused) with at least a 3-dimensional intra-oral mesh of the patient's teeth for purposes of visualizing a dental treatment plan. In one aspect, a method includes capturing media of a patient's face from multiple angles, using at least one device; transforming the media into a 3-dimensional representation of the patient's face; and transmitting, the 3-dimensional representation of the patient's face to one or more processing components to be integrated with a 3-dimensional representation of the patient's intra-oral scan to visualize a dental treatment plan for the patient.

  • Publication number: 20230141733
    Abstract: A system comprises an image capture device, an augmented reality (AR) display to display, and a processing device. The processing deice receives image data of a dental arch from the image capture device and processes the image data using a plurality of detection rules, where each detection rule detects one or more dental conditions. The processing device determines a dental condition for the dental arch based on the processing, determines a position of an area of interest on the dental arch, wherein the area of interest is associated with the dental condition, generates a visual overlay comprising an indication of the dental condition at the position of the area of interest, and outputs the visual overlay to the AR display, wherein the visual overlay is superimposed over a view of the dental arch on the AR display at the position of the area of interest.

  • Patent number: 11559377
    Abstract: An image of a dental arch comprising a preparation tooth is generated by an image capture device associated with an augmented reality (AR) display. The image of the dental arch is registered to previous image data associated with the dental arch. A visual overlay associated with a dental prosthetic to be placed on the preparation tooth is generated based on the registering of the image of the dental arch to the previous image data associated with the dental arch. The visual overlay is output to the AR display, wherein the visual overlay is superimposed over a view of the preparation tooth on the AR display.

  • Patent number: 11413165
    Abstract: Systems including a provisional tibial prosthesis system are disclosed. The provisional system can include a tibial component, a base component, and a shim component. The tibial component can have a proximal surface and a distal surface, the distal surface can be configured to seat on a resected proximal surface of a tibia. The base component can have a proximal surface and can be configured to couple with the tibial component when disposed on the proximal surface thereof. The shim component can have a proximal surface and a distal surface. The proximal surface can be configured as an articulating surface sized and shaped to articulate with a femoral prosthesis and the distal surface can be configured to couple with the base component at the proximal surface thereof.

  • Patent number: 11368432
    Abstract: A computing device can install and execute a kernel-level security agent that interacts with a remote security system as part of a detection loop aimed at defeating malware attacks. The kernel-level security agent can be installed with a firewall policy that can be remotely enabled by the remote security system in order to “contain” the computing device. Accordingly, when the computing device is being used, and a malware attack is detected on the computing device, the remote security system can send an instruction to contain the computing device, which causes the implementation, by an operating system (e.g., a Mac™ operating system) of the computing device, of the firewall policy accessible to the kernel-level security agent. Upon implementation and enforcement of the firewall policy, outgoing data packets from, and incoming data packets to, the computing device that would have been allowed prior to the implementation of the firewall policy are denied.

  • Patent number: 11317999
    Abstract: A processing device receives, from an image capture device associated with an augmented reality (AR) display, a plurality of images of a face of a patient. The processing device selects a subset of the plurality of images that meet one or more image selection criteria. The selection comprises determining, from the plurality of images, a first image that represents a first position extreme for the face; determining, from the plurality of images, a second image that represents a second position extreme of the face; selecting the first image; and selecting the second image. The processing device further generates a model of a jaw of the patient based at least in part on the subset of the plurality of images that have been selected.

  • Patent number: 11051914
    Abstract: A method of using AR for dentistry and orthodontics is provided. An image of a dental arch is received, the image having been generated by an image capture device associated with an augmented reality (AR) display. A processing device registers the image to previous image data associated with the dental arch, compares one or more areas of the dental arch from the image to one or more corresponding areas of the dental arch from the previous image data, determines a position of an area of interest on the dental arch based on the comparing, generates a visual overlay comprising an indication of the area of interest, and outputs the visual overlay to the AR display, wherein the visual overlay is superimposed over a view of the dental arch on the AR display at the position of the area of interest.

  • Patent number: 10888399
    Abstract: A system comprises a scanner, an augmented reality (AR) display and a computing device. The scanner generates intraoral images of a dental arch and the AR display generates additional image data representative of a view from a wearer of the AR display. The computing device receives the intraoral images from the intraoral scanner, generates a virtual three-dimensional model of at least a portion of the dental arch from the intraoral images, receives the additional image data from the AR display, determines, from the additional image data, a region of the view that is outside of the dental arch, generates a visual overlay comprising the virtual three-dimensional model, and sends the visual overlay to the AR display. The AR display displays the visual overlay such that the virtual three-dimensional model is shown in the region of the view that is outside of the dental arch.
