Six Degree-of Freedom Haptic Rendering for Dental Implantology Simulation
Abstract. Dental implantology procedures are among the most complex surgical procedures executed by dentists. During the critical part of the procedure, the jawbone is drilled at the location of the missing tooth (or the missing group of teeth). This asks for specic skills from the dentists, who need to be well trained. In this paper we present a virtual reality based training system for implantology and we mainly focus on the simulation of drilling. We have two main contributions: The rst one is a method for precise haptic rendering of contacts between the drilling tool and the jawbone model issued from a CT-scan. The second one is the real-time simulation of the jawbone erosion during drilling which is compatible with the haptic rendering of contacts. Key words: medical simulation, training, haptic feedback, contact response, drilling simulation
