Several universities have been given a share of a six million pound funding pot for robot dentistry research. The project is led by Glasgow University and will explore the idea of robots performing complex dental surgeries.
The research centers on the use of ultrasonic technology. This type of method is often already used in dental surgeries, however, certainly not to its full potential. This research will look at developing more advanced ultrasonic technology. As a result of this advancement, coupled with robot technology, surgeries will become less invasive, highly precise, and preserve the tissue much more effectively. This is partly because there will be less room for human error, amongst other things.
Professor Warmsley of Birmingham University expressed his excitement about the new research. “This is a true interdisciplinary project bringing engineers, dentists, surgeons, robotics, cell biologists and solid mechanics together from five UK universities. Therefore, using our knowledge of cell and tissue responses, our expertise will be crucial in the development of revolutionary new ultrasonic tools for the cutting of bone”.
