Purpose - It is not an easy and simple task to manufacture a complete denture with high quality. Traditionally, it often needs a medical expert with experience and hand-on skill, due to the manual way of denture manufacturing. The purpose of this paper is to implement the multi-manipulator tooth-arrangement robot system that can fully automate the denture manufacturing process.
Design/methodology/approach - A novel complete denture manufacturing mechanism is designed, which is based on the multi-manipulator and dental arch generator. The visual tooth-arrangement and robot control software is developed in VC++6.0. Preliminary experiments on tooth-arrangement have been conducted using the proposed multi-manipulator tooth-arrangement robot prototype system.
Findings - The multi-manipulator tooth-arrangement robot prototype system can automatically design and manufacture a set of complete denture that fit a patient by visual tooth-arrangement and robot control software according to the patient′s jaw arch parameters.
Research limitations/implications - The implication of research is that it is feasible that the manufacture strategy of complete denture fulfilled by multi-manipulator tooth-arrangement robot. The limitation of research is that it is difficult to realize coordinate control.
Originality/value - The traditional manual method which makes complete denture by medical personal experience will be changed after the multi-manipulator tooth-arrangement robot system is manufactured, and adjustment to each tooth position and orientation will be realized by this system.
