Odontologie spatiale et missions interplanétaires : apport des technologies numériques

Abstract : Meanwhile dentistry is already undergoing drastic changes through the digitalization of most of its processes, it appears that digital technologies also play a bigger role than ever in aerospace dentistry. Indeed, mankind’s insatiable desir of expansion is leading us to discovering (and conquering ?) new lands. 50 years after Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin’s “giant leap for mankind” on the Moon’s surface, it is now time to take a step on a real planete: Mars. These longlasting missions (more than two years) in microgravity combined with the impossibility of going back to Earth in case of emergency, led scientific expert to question the use of new technologies. The paradigm of aerospace dentistry must now evolve following the change in the nature of missions: a meticulous pre-flight screening of astronauts, using diagnostic tools such as intra-oral cameras equipped with fluorescence laser seem, more than ever, crucial. Further technologies will also need to be onboarded to allow a much complete care: intra-oral cameras for digital impressions, portative x-ray machines, 3D printers, and telemedicine installations.
