METAVERSE: Dentistry and Dental Education

By Staff Reporters



The use of artificial intelligence (AI) is now a reality in dentistry. A significant advancement is the use of haptic gloves that would let dental students feel virtual objects while practicing suturing or giving a nerve block – this can significantly improve the students’ technique over time and give them, for example, immediate feedback with respect to needle point insertion.

While initial costs for such systems might seem high now, the hardware is proven to be cost-effective in the long term.
