Title: GINGIVAL INDEXING DEVICE AND METHOD FOR INDEXING THE GINGIVA
Abstract:
The invention relates to a gingival indexing device comprising different, defined red colour regions (red tones) which are assigned a grey colour chart or grey chart, and to a method for recording the gingival situation, in particular for producing a gingival restoration, involving an analysis at least of a region of the gingival situation with regard to the red colour tones thereof, the position of the red colour tones, the colour gradient of the red colour tones, the geometry thereof and/or the morphology thereof, wherein the analysis may take place manually and/or digitally, and gingival information is obtained, in particular in the form of gingival mapping, and optionally producing a virtual or real model of a gingival restoration simulation of the missing gum portion or gingiva portion.
