In China robot dentist spent implantation teeth
• In China, the robot had a dentist teeth implantation
China was able to once again surprise developments. Engineers managed to create a dental robot, which conducted the first successful operation of these days. This unique case may soon become quite commonplace, because in China a severe shortage of dentists, and people who need to embed the teeth for about 400 million.
The software for the robot and of the "dentist" did four years: the development took place exclusively in China Dental Clinic forces of the Fourth Military Medical University and the Institute of Robotics.
The robot for the first time successfully held two teeth implantation, printed the 3D-printer. Hour operation performed under local anesthesia. The first patient robot became a resident of the city of Xi'an.
Of course, do exactly this operation is not possible without human: prior to the start of experts programmed the angle and depth of movements that arose implants in the jaw as accurately as possible. In this machine will adjust its work when the patient is moved.
The operation was carried out with an accuracy of 0, 2-0, 3 mm, which is consistent with the standards. Engineers and medical experts say that the robot can do the job even better quality than professional dentists. Robot novelty to avoid human error during operations: dentists sometimes difficult to see what is in some areas of the mouth.
The idea of creating such a robot is connected with the shortage of qualified dentists in China. Today in dental implants require about 400 million citizens of the country, with each year in China held nearly a million operations, some of which lead to complications due to the human factor.
