Having defined all your wishes, our doctor receives a series of photos of the patient according to a certain protocol, then on the computer processes the received pictures in graphic programs.
Protocol of photos.
The photos of the patient should be made with a good digital reflex camera (it is possible to use a semi-professional), the main thing — at good lighting.
The reliable position for taking a picture of the head of the patient — the so-called esthetic plane, that is a ratio of the perpendicular (frontal) plane to the plane in the center of the angle formed by the Frankfurt horizontal and the Kamperov line (pic.5). The same position has to be projected upright on 45 ° and 90 ° because pictures in a profile are also extremely important as they give the chance to analyse the face and teeth from the esthetic point of view: to record the occlusion class, the position of lips, esthetic angles — all moments important for the orthodontist, maxillofacial surgeon and plastic surgeon.
