In this study, we propose a novel color-image segmentation algorithm to discern the teeth region utilizing RG intensity and its relevant RGB histogram features with resolving the variations of its maximum intensity in terms of peaks and valleys. Tooth candidates in a CCD image are first extracted by applying RGB color multi-threshold levels and consequently the successive morphological image operations and a Sobel-mask edge processing are performed to resolve the teeth region and its contour.
