PerioSim: Haptics-Based Periodontal Simulator
This program provides a visual overview of the haptics-based virtual reality periodontal training simulator application. A realistic 3-dimensional model of the human mouth is explored in real-time; the interface allows a user to adjust the model position, viewpoint, and transparency level, while using a haptics device providing force-feedback to realistically interact with the ‘virtual’ mouth. Various periodontal procedures are explored for the purpose of training - such as examining calculi on the tooth root, measuring pocket depth, detecting calculus, applying treatment through post-surgical evaluation by a dentist.
