Three-dimensional reconstruction (3D) in computer vision, is the process of three-dimensional view information from single or multiple views. In medicine, 3D reconstruction techniques are mainly based on MSCT, magnetic resonance imagin and other output medical digital image communication protocol (DICOM) format files. As a new digital medical technology, 3D reconstruction technology has been widely used in the field of stomatology, using 3D software, we can freely rotate, segment and view the CT scan results from many different angles, so that we can get more clear skull contrast and more information, data in CT scan results can also be processed so that reference markers can be clearly displayed for better diagnosis and treatment [1]. It has the unique preoperation design advantage, reduces the operation time, enhances the operation accuracy.
