  • Detailed decription

Nissin Simodont dental trainer offers dental training in a virtual reality environment (a ‘virtual reality phantom head’). Students can train dental procedures in a 3D virtual environment. Highly realistic haptic feedback (feeling) is provided through the drill hand piece so that the student has an exact feeling of the objects and materials that are being worked on during the training. Currently the following procedures are included:

  • Manual dexterity training
  • Indirect vision training
  • Cardiology preparations
  • Endodontic access preparations
  • Crown preparations
  • Patient specific crown preparations, via an easy import of an intra-oral scan (.STL file) of your patient
  • Dental anatomy training
  • Dental implants (under development)

The Simodont contains an extensive library of tooth models, instruments and procedures, and can be further customized by teachers so that it matches the training philosophy and requirements of individual dental schools. Teachers can observe and evaluate the work of students either real time or off-line at a later point in time. Training programs can be set up and managed, and tools are provided for objective assessment of students’ work. Simodontis used and supported in over 100 dental schools around the world as a complement to traditional phantom heads. The Simodont was (and is) developed together with ACTA (the Academic Center for Dentistry in Amsterdam) and is continuously expanded with further functionalities developed in cooperation with a range of dental schools.

Simodont Courseware Student Application

Students work on the Simodont and:

  • Practice in their own time
  • Login using manual login, swipe ID card or RFID card
  • Select cases from planned courses
  • Choose their own positioning: left or right handed
  • Learn about the virtual patient
  • Write a treatment plan and make treatment plan drawings
  • Select the required instruments for the planned treatment
  • Easily switch between different virtual instruments for the preparation of the tooth
  • Can actually feel the difference between the different tissues in the tooth
  • Save 3D snapshots at different stages of the preparation
  • Repeat exercises from a certain moment in the preparation using reloading of snapshots
  • Inspect and review their preparation using virtual inspection tools not available in real practice
  • Assess their own work using self assessment rubrics
  • Compare their preparation against self made the treatment plan drawings
  • Review the teachers feedback and grading on the Simodont
