摘要：Three-dimensional reconstruction of teeth plays an important role in the operation of living dental implants. However, the tissue around teeth and the noise generated in the process of image acquisition bring a serious impact on the reconstruction results, which must be reduced or eliminated. Combined with the advantages of wavelet transform and bilateral filtering, this paper proposes an image denoising method based on the above methods. The method proposed in this paper not only removes the noise but also preserves the image edge details. The noise in high frequency subbands is denoised using a locally adaptive thresholding and the noise in low frequency subbands is filtered by the bilateral filtering. Peak signal-to-noise ratio (PSNR), structural similarity index measure (SSIM) and 3D reconstruction using the iso-surface extraction method are used to evaluate the denoising effect. The experimental results show that the proposed method is better than the wavelet denoising and bilateral filtering, and the reconstruction results meet the requirements of clinical diagnosis.
