In this study, a new method of dental plaque scoring is proposed by adopting new criteria to divide the tooth surface with utilizing the geometrical features of a tooth color image. For the possible clinical usage of our new plaque scoring system, GUI(Graphic User Interface) system is also implemented to estimate the numerical plaque index for a specific tooth by designing the supplementary database management module that handles dental plaque scores.
