Real time simulation for restorative dentistry procedure

Faisal Mohamed, N.F., Shiratuddin, M.F. and Luke, D.A. (2002) Real time simulation for restorative dentistry procedure. In: International Conference on Artificial Intelligence in Engineering & Technology ICAIET 2002, 17 - 18 June, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia



Virtual reality (VR) is the human experience of perceiving and interacting with a synthetic environment containing simulated objects as if it were real. VR technology can be applied to many tasks that would be more difficult to do by other methods. This paper discusses the potential use of VR to producing an interactive-simulation for the Class I procedures for the cavity preparations of restorative dentistry. Analysis showed that Class I cavity preparations necessitate a range of motor, perceptual and cognitive skills. The objective is to produce a highly reliable training material that imitates the actual procedures of the cavity preparations. This project is seen as having the potential to add new dimensions and offers vast possibilities to improve not only the teaching methods but also diagnosis and the treatment planning processes.
