Abstract: A computer aided measurement and analysis system is put out to avoid the problem caused by Orthodontics Mould (Teeth Die) manual measurement of the possible measurement errors in this study. Orthodontics Mould’s digital image may be collected by using digital CCD camera’s information acquisition technology and achieved by means of a computer-aided measurement system of the Orthodontics Mould’s digital image. Digital image processing of the Orthodontics Mould, makes it easy to process and analyse the measurement data from the mould. The system based on the Windows platform, Visual C++ 6.0 tools and MS SQL server database technology completes Orthodontics Mould-image data measurement, processing, maintenance and management. The system based on the arch form’s measurement and analysis includes 3 subsystems, namely, Orthodontics Mould’s medical records management system, measurement systems and analysis system. The results show that the digital measurement data of Orthodontics Mould’s image can be developed for clinical doctor-assisted oral treatment options for reference, which has a strong clinical value.
