Development of an Efficient Haptic System for Tooth Processing
This paper focuses upon the research and development of a method for modeling human teeth. By the use of virtual reality and haptics technology an application was created, that allows dentists to prepare their next procedures or students to learn dental skills by visualizing a three-dimensional virtual human tooth and feeling real tactile sensations while touching or deforming the surface of the tooth.
