Abstract: The analysis of the condyle position in temporomandibular joint is crucial issue in differential diagnosis of bruxism and centric relation/maximal intercuspidation discrepancy or other temporomandibular joint disorders. The matter of importance are both static position of condyles during maximal intercuspidation and dynamics of mandible movement. The paper presents the method of evaluation of the dynamics of temporomandibular joint using the multiregistration of multimodal images: CBCT scans, virtual dental models and dynamic 3D photos of patient during the function. The mandible movements acquired with the optic 3D scanner are applied to the images gathered from CBCT, yielding the movement tracking of condyles in temporomandibular joint. Therefore low invasive 3D photo sequences registered with single high invasive CBCT yields the simulation of the high invasive imaging repetition. The anatomical evaluation of both the condyle position and occlusion condition during the movement may lead to the broaden TMJ diagnostics.
