Use of selectively colored stereolithography for diagnosis of impacted supernumerary teeth for a patient with cleidocranial dysplasia


The objective of the present study was to develop a three-dimensional method of locating the position of impacted supernumerary teeth in a patient with cleidocranial dysplasia. Sterolithographies of the patient's teeth and maxillofacial structure were prepared, coloring the teeth red. This model established accurate tooth malposition and provided support for selection of surgical exposure for extraction and traction of the impacted teeth. Selectively colored sterolithography is expected to be useful in a number of diverse situations.
