The use of Google glasses in dentistry

The use of Google glasses in dentistry

Are we awaiting a new technological revolution in the field of education and the medical field? This question I had while writing this interesting article, however
Let us first get to know the principle of glasses.

What is Google glasses ?

For those who do not know Google glasses is a new project launched by Google, which is glasses that the user sets as an alternative to the screen
Film where he sees whoever puts it a 25-inch screen 8 feet away and shows what you choose from multimedia movies – photos – articles –
Games – and connected to the Internet – and you can record what you see in front of you video or pictures – and they are very similar to what we saw in science fiction movies
Old. Very few beta versions were produced on the market in glasses in January 2014 under the name Google Glass 2.0 Explorer
Edition. Some will say: Thanks for the information, but what has this got to do with dentistry or human medicine ?! This is what we will talk about in this article.

The use of Google glasses in dentistry and human medicine

Google glasses have been trying for many hours in training exercises on dead bodies by human doctors and dentists, for a good understanding of this new device and system
His program and capabilities. After using glasses on the bodies, the doctors found the enormous capabilities of this device and its potential that could make a quantum leap
In the world of surgery, operations and educational technology.

I will give an example of this:

When studying anatomy of the maxillofacial muscles and how to perform anesthesia of the inferior alveolar nerve, not only
Knowing which part we should put the anesthetic in, but rather we must know the anatomical structure that will be anesthetized, the course of the nerves, and the part that will be anesthetized.

When the student uses the Google glasses, the glasses can identify the part he chooses and show him the muscle in three dimensions on a side screen
In front of him with a reference to the nerve pathway and this is shown by video, text and images from the atlas, as appropriate to what the student determines his knowledge
Or that a line of illustration appears on the muscle itself of the injection site and the nerve pathway, or any comment on what you see in your field of vision.

Another example in the practical field:

The use of Google glasses in practical applications and surgery

Google is working to develop glasses to become a basic tool for use in surgeries, as one of the doctors says in the video below that
Google glasses will become like a side mirror in the car do not use it mainly, but it is important that you can not drive without it.

But lend a little more to your imagination and let us consider this future idea in dentistry: You are in the midst of preparing for the removal of an exclusive tooth
Impacted tooth and want to make a surgical incision in the gums, but you are a beginner and need help finding out the best way to make the incision and its pathway or you
You do it rarely because of the scarcity of the condition. She wears magic glasses and chooses the desired implant surgery program of work
Work on it and the way you want it to work. The patient’s gum is drawn on the surgical line, which you must walk on with a scalpel in order to perform ideal surgery.
Of course, this option is not currently available, but it is an idea that is not far away due to the principle that underpins the new Google glasses.

Google glasses are in the midst of working on them and developing them so that you can read the barcode or the so-called QR codes, and then link this information
With online contents. Anatomical points on the bodies can be marked with a special barcode tag anatomical parts with QR codes
Hence the use of this feature in multiple functions.
The use of Google glasses in the field of education:

We can tag a member or part of an educational model with a specific number because it is difficult to tag small members with their full name, and you cannot write
Educational information on a small section you want to introduce students to). The tag is exactly the same when you tag a friend in a Facebook profile
Facebook) After tagging members or parts on the educational model, the super-capabilities of Google glasses begin here, as this tag can be linked or
Figure out what you want from a video tutorial – texts – notes – audio files and this opens the door for a lot of things that can be done. where can
That a comment appears over the part the student chooses to put the member’s name, job, nerves, arteries, and veins, and all the pictures you want to know
And a video related to it. There are also developments that Google conducts on its products, as the glasses can learn more about the anatomical parts
Intelligent about what we mentioned previously without any tag, such as how to recognize faces in Facebook, but for every part of the body.
