Visual fracture monitoring for dental implant systems

As part of his bachelor's thesis, Adrien Eberhart developed a program that detects damage to dental implants at an early stage.

Mechatronik Straumann

Straumann is one of the world's  leading suppliers in the field of dental implantology. In collaboration with leading clinics, research institutes and universities, Straumann researches, develops and produces implants, instruments and prosthetic components as well as tissue regeneration products for dental prosthetics and tooth preservation.

The images or measurements  required for in-depth analysis of damage or fractures to implants are often not available. The cause of the damage is usually a matter for conjecture. What is more,  it is often unclear how the damage occurred.

Adrien Eberhart developed a program that can detect damage to implants at an early stage using a variety of data. The program relies on image and video analysis to do this.
