how can i find volume difference of two objects?

I’m a dentist and researcher. In my doctoral thesis, I will look at whether there is a volume difference between teeth images taken with two different intraoral cameras from the same tooth in Meshmixer. I will also look at volume loss after removing the caries. (I looked at similar topics in the forum boolean dif etc but i couldn't solve my own problem)

I know how to make the image solid and calculate volume, but I need to cut and compare images at the same border. Since the cutting line is indented (transition between tooth tissues), I try to cut the two images of same tooth by putting the raw image side by side. There are several mm3 volume differences. But this difference is important for our study. Because it will be understood as the difference between cameras.

In order to explain the problem better, I am sending stl images (1. Cerec cam, 2. itero cam and 3 make solid 1'st cam) as examples.

I would appreciate if you could spare time and help.

Strange things were happening here. Somebody or a bot deleted my answers, images and screencast to this post. You may know me and I'm sure: It was not in any conflict with any rule at this forum!

Also: I got a mail saying that the screencast is available but it is still marked as "pending".

Such actions waste my time and I consider to stop my work here.
