Research indicates that the 'black box' software packages often used to analyse tooth wear may produce erroneous results. A custom software package, called WearCompare, has been developed to allow researchers to select the unchanged aspects of a digital scan, and selectively align scan data to these areas. Work developed in collaboration with Saoirse O'Toole at Kings College London.

Relevant publications:
Investigation into the accuracy and measurement methods of sequential 3D dental scan alignment
Investigation into the validity of WearCompare, a purpose-built software to quantify erosive tooth wear progression
The sensitivity of digital intraoral scanners at measuring early erosive wear
