Robot Performs Dental Surgery On First Patient

A woman in China recently became the first person to have oral surgery performed solely by a robot. While human doctors were in the room for the procedure, the robot autonomously implanted two teeth into the patient’s mouth using preprogrammed directions, according to the South China Morning Post.

The technology was invented by Wuhan University Stomatological Hospital and Beihang University’s robotics institute to deal with a shortage of dentists in the country and frequent surgical errors. Cool idea?
