Through innovation, technology and research, we prepare dental care for the digital future

Boneprox – Research and development (A.I)

Boneprox invests heavily in research and development (R&D). Our goal is to increase the quality of health and dental services through the development of better collaboration platforms and use of advanced image analysis and Artificial Intelligence (AI).
We give you access to leading dental experts and knowledge on a secure and user friendly platform. In tight collaboration with healthcare providers, we make sure all needs are covered, for patients, clinics and specialists.

Our Caries detection model is based on North Europe’s largest data collection of dental x-rays which have been annotated by 6 different specialists. The model classifies caries into seven different categories. The first five categories correspond to the Espelid and Tveit grading criteria for caries:

    • Grade 1 (1): radiolucency (x-ray shadow due to the lack of material) into the outer half of the enamel.
    • Grade 2 (2): radiolucency into the inner half of the enamel, not spreading into the dentine.
    • Grade 3 (3): radiolucency into the outer third of the dentine, i.e., within a third (1/3) of the dentine
    • Grade 4 (4): radiolucency into two thirds of the dentine thickness.
    • Grade 5 (5): radiolucency into the inner third of the dentine.

Whereas the remaining two categories refer to: secondary lesions (SL), lesions related to fillings and other procedures; and other radiolucent areas which the user cannot identify as any of the previous categories (unknown grade (UNK)).
Upload any intra-oral x-ray and you will instantaneously receive an output which shows the localization and identification of proximal caries in your provided image classified as either Enamel [grade 1 & 2], Dentine [grade 3-5] or Secondary lesion [grade 6 & 7].

Boneprox’s cephalometric model can instantaneously provide landmark- and angle detection to help professionals evaluate and assist patients. The model currently maps out the 21 most common landmarks[1] and generates the angle planes based on input from the user. The model can currently generate planes in accordance with the 12 most used analysis method[2]. The output of the model is interactive which means that the user can change the landmark- and angle placements after the model has completed its analysis.

Boneprox have developed an algorithm for counting and labeling the number of teeth, on a panoramic x-ray, according to the FDI World Dental Federation notation (“FDI notation” or “ISO 3950”). Counting teeth in an effective and precise manner with the help of computer vision streamlines an otherwise simple but time consuming task for Dental Professionals, this model is also used in combination with our other models to navigate on x-rays and provide the user with easy to read reports and visualization that can enhance patient communication.
