Abstract

A computer-based image analysis system was used to measure, from photographs, the percentage area of upper and lower incisors and canines covered by disclosed plaque. This measurement gave high correlation with total plaque weight, viable plaque microbial count and Podshadley's patient hygiene performance index.
