The robot dentist was able to accurately cure the patient.
In China completed the first successful surgery of this kind. The robot without any help from man could supply the patient new teeth, reports the South China Morning Post. In the future these robots will help with the shortage of qualified doctors.
During the operation was attended by medical staff acting as observers. The first fully robotic implantation took an hour and passed the Chinese city of Xian. According to the experts observed, the implants were installed with an error of 0.2-0.3 mm is the norm for this kind of operation, so the operation could be called successful.
The developers say they created the technology to avoid human error and get rid of the shortage of qualified personnel in hospitals. Robot and software has developed the last four years, the joint efforts of local universities and hospitals, it combines all the experience of Chinese dentists and the latest technology in robotics.
The robot operated completely autonomously. Teeth that used to implant printed on 3D-printer. In China, according to the latest data, about 400 million people in need of new teeth. The demand here is much greater than supply. Often the operations are well enough, patients are forced to seek help.
Engineers and physicians say that the robot can do the job even more efficiently than professional dentists.
