XO-Dontia: Invisible tooth markings for increasing tooth-accuracy in dental procedures
​ ​ (Left) Teeth marked with XO-Dontia under normal light exposure. (Right) The same, marked teeth when exposed to black, UV light. Invention Summary: Dentists use tooth numbering systems in order to mark, on referral forms and patient records, the exact teeth that must be removed via dental extractions. However, tooth numbering systems differ...
