Dental hand piece scope

Project Overview

During crown implant procedures, dentists are often confronted with difficulties viewing the teeth of interest. They may observe the location of the operation site and the hand piece with a mirror, but depending on the size of the patientís mouth and the location of the teeth, viewing can be nearly impossible, forcing the dentist to rely on intuition to complete the procedure. A camera capable of showing a live video feed of the operation site could remove this difficulty, allowing dentists to operate without the risks associated with blind handpiece use.
