Dental treatment in Sweden for dental crowns costs taxpayers millions of SEK each year.
That’s why researchers at Chalmers University of Technology want to prevent that from happening in the future. As a result, the researchers are developing methods to project the exact amount it will cost to create a tooth and then place a crown on it. The final result will be cheaper costs and quicker treatment.
Now, however, these researchers are working on a computer program that will be capable of taking away much of the leg work necessary for dentists to complete the entire crown procedure.
