Abstract

Cost pressure, increasing quality requirements of dental products and the effects on the development and manufacturing of dental products demand efficient computer-aided methods and tools. The utilization of mediated reality solutions in dental technology opens up huge potentials for cost savings, automation of dental workflows and improvement of interoperability. The structural integration of electronics, sensors and actuators in the dental work area, digitalization of dental workflows and virtualization of dental products pave the way for a paradigm shift in dental technology and how dental technicians interact with dental products. In this paper, a concept for the integration of mediated reality in dental technology is introduced. Based on the digital dental workflow, improvements for the context of use of dental technicians are proposed. The concept focuses on the utilization of visual and haptic feedback in the dental product design and manufacturing process. Elements of dental technicians’ future work places are analyzed and validated, resulting in a 3D dental Computer-Aided Vision and Design (CAVD) system with haptic feedback and visual motion tracking.
