Simulators, Training, Dental
Definition : Simulators designed for dental procedure training. These simulators usually include a life-size model of the human head with a full set of teeth and a tongue. Some of these models are made with plastic to look and feel like human flesh, others are made of metal structures. Most of these anatomic models include radio-opaque metal teeth and flexible jaws with life-like articulation. The anatomic models can be used to practice dental procedures using the same tools and techniques used on a real patient. Most of these head models can be clamped to dental chairs and many can be also used to take x-rays which facilitate the learning and/or improving practical skills needed for proper x-ray procedures before taking radiographies of an actual patient. Anatomic models used in the simulators are often available in different sizes (e.g., child, adult).
