  Abstract This paper presents an efficient and economic virtual teeth setup system. The virtual teeth set-up procedure follows the traditional method of using aligners to assist the dentist in solving orthodontic problems. Unlike the traditional method, our virtual set- up procedure first digitizes a plaster model using a 3D scanner. Next, crown segmentation algorithm is used to separate the virtual model into the teeth and gum. The virtual teeth can be adjusted by a force feedback device. During the chewing motion, the continuous detection algorithm is used to prevent the teeth from intersecting. In addition, in order to avoid defects while the teeth are moving, the morphing algorithm is used to deform the virtual gum during teeth movement. After orthodontic planning is finished in our system, a new orthodontic treatment method, called clear aligner, will be added to our system. First, each step of set-up model can be milled using a 5-axis machine. Then the clear aligner can be manufactured by vacuum forming technology. Finally, a clinical experiment is conducted to validate our virtual teeth set-up system. The contribution of this paper is to propose an innovative procedure designed for orthodontic alignment. It is believed that our system can greatly reduce the cost of orthodontic treatment and facilitate the conduct of orthodontic study. © 2010 CAD Solutions, LLC.
