CHINA - Tooth Implant without Human Intervention

Arno Froese

A robot dentist has carried out the first successful autonomous implant surgery by fitting two new teeth into a woman’s mouth, mainland media has reported.

The one-hour procedure took place in Xi’an, Shaanxi, according to Science and Technology Daily.

According to Dr. Zhao Yimin, the mainland’s leading oral rehabilitation specialist who works at the hospital, the robot combines dentists’ expertise and the benefits of technology.

It conducts the surgery by itself so it can avoid faults caused by human error.

The artificial teeth it implanted were created by 3D printing, he added.

China’s epidemic survey has found there were about 400 million patients needing new teeth, but the number of qualified dentists was lagging behind demand.

Around one million implants are carried out across the country each year and the delays patients face can often cause further problems after surgery has been conducted.

Arno's commentary

Decades ago, it was unthinkable for communist China to be a leader in the high-tech industry. Now, a robot is performing implant surgery.

What does this mean? More technology is being placed in the hands of man; in this case, a robot. This and many other developments we hear and read about almost daily, is part of the process to make man more dependent upon his own inventions; subsequently, less dependent on God.
