Abstract

a measurement setup is proposed that, for the first time, is capable of capturing the combination of high forces and subtle movements exerted during tooth removal procedures in high detail and in a reproducible manner by using robot technology. The outcomes of a design process from a collaboration between clinicians, mechanical and software engineers together with first results are presented in this proof of concept.Clinical relevance - by measuring all aspects of tooth removal in a single setup a strong database can be build that will deliver the data needed to gain scientific understanding of what makes (un)successful tooth removal. It gives a unique opportunity to model the procedure, evaluate techniques, understand and predict adverse events as well as to create new evidence-based teaching methods.
