Students in Japan are practicing dentistry on a robot.

Dentistry students In Japan are now able to practice their skills on a robot, ahead of actually treating human patients, it has been revealed.

According to News Centre, 88 students at Japan’s Showa University have been able to carry out treatments on a robot that mimics the human mouth. It enables the students to hone their skills safe in the knowledge that they cannot cause any harm.

“Medical skill and ability is first built upon failures. One’s skills only improve once they have failed once,” said vice-director of Showa University Dental Hospital Koutaro Maki.

As a result, the institute has developed a robotic surrogate on which students can practice their skills without harming anyone in the process.

Elsewhere, Dr James McAnally, director of the Healthy Heart Dental Program, recently revealed that having good oral health is key in the fight against gum disease.

He noted taking the time to get regular check-ups from the dentist could dramatically improve a person’s health and increase their lifespan in the process.
