Embedded systems are growing vast in medical devices. In this paper, we segment tooth images based on feature contour algorithm in which the images are captured through dental intraoral USB camera. The dental intraoral system supports the capturing of dental images and image tooth segmentation. This device helps dentists in diagnosis with the help of dental images captured by dental camera. In this system, we propose advanced characteristics for the dental intraoral system including touch screen with graphic user interface (GUI), dental image processing, patient records, and dentist’s diagnosis note. Especially, the segmentation of tooth is important for examining and extracting tooth characteristics from segmented images. On Feature contour without edge algorithm has been proposed in this paper for the segmentation of the tooth. Moreover, our system is portable, economic and ready to be applied at dental clinics. It also helps dentists examine at patient’s home and voyages, apart from clinics.
