The success of the work conducted by NPL and TaiCaan will enable researchers to gain a better understanding of the causes, the consequences and the process of tooth decay. With enhanced knowledge on the topic, TaiCaan is looking to publish academic papers, and to work with the University of Southampton and King's College London to secure grant funding for future research into the area. The work will form the basis for the design of new dental wear measurement machines for research institutions, helping to accelerate the development of products for tooth wear prevention and treatment, including the next-generation of toothpastes and toothbrushes.
The success of the NPL and TaiCaan collaboration may be applied to other areas of medical research that involve complex surfaces. Similar metrology and data techniques have the potential to be used to measure other free-form surfaces, such as knee or hip joints.
The work has also opened up new commercial opportunities for TaiCaan, paving the way to larger customer base through the development of new software methods and new instruments for use in dental schools.
