Dr Dental – Mathematics and Dental Care
Mathematics is helping to provide better attachment for dental crowns.
Researchers at the Chalmers University of Technology are developing a new method for determining exactly how to prepare a tooth to place a crown on it optimally. The technique will improve the quality and reliability of crown replacements and result in significantly cheaper and faster dental treatment. Dentists will soon benefit from a computer program produced by a group of researchers at Chalmers. The researchers are now planning to run clinical tests. The software is based on advanced mathematical models and state-of-the-art visualization technology.
