Hello everyone. I am just starting with OpenCV and still a bit lost.

Is OpenCV helpful to detect the position of a missing object (tooth for example)?

I would like to build a code to analyze an image of an equipment and detect which tooth is missing and its position.

For example in the image attached below of an equipment that has 9 teeth normally: the code should show a message that the 2nd tooth is missing.

Is this possible with OpenCV? If yes, where do I start?

Attached you will find the figure. missing tooth.PNG

Thanks a lot :)
