Abstract

Students in a dental course have to pay a large amount of money for their training to become a dentist because they have to use expensive dentures in the dental treatment training that are discarded after the training. If we can provide virtual objects realized by 3D CG instead of the physical dentures, dental students can reduce their training costs drastically because such virtual objects can be used repeatedly and there are not any physical loss. Then, this paper treats a dental treatment training system. The research group of the authors have already proposed a dental treatment training system using a haptic device called Phantom. In this system, the treatment accuracy was not enough. So, the group tried to improve the system by adopting polygonal mesh subdivision. However, there still remain several problems. Therefore, the authors solved these problems and improved the treatment accuracy. This paper describes how the authors improved the system and also shows simple evaluation result to justify the improvement.
