Avinent Implant System committed to the transmission of knowledge around the technological sector of health, dentistry, innovation, scientific studies, clinical cases and in general all information relevant to the dental community.

Avinent Glass - The first implant dentistry application of Google Glass in the world

On July 9th we presented AVINENT Glass at the Mobile World Centre of Barcelona. We were accompanied by Droiders, responsible for developing the application, and Dr. Jesús López Vilagran, specialized in digital dentistry and a beta tester of AVINENT Glass. This application allows users to follow all the steps in a surgical intervention using the new Google device. With this new tool, we are taking another step forward in digital dentistry and affirming that the world of wearables has extraordinary potential in surgery. A few months ago, we published our vision of the possibilities of this device, which can be handled without using our hands. We developed the product by relying on the expertise of Dr. Jesús López Vilagran, who is experienced with testing the device with Avinent Glass and studying its behavior in a real surgical intervention. We heard his opinion at the presentation and confirm the substantial possibilities it offers for training, knowledge transfer, and patient safety. Droiders developed Avinent Glass and with their experience we have been able to design an intuitive and functional system that builds confidence in these types of applications and while obtaining a usable and consistent user interface.


Medical applications are a reality, which highlight their advantages in terms of efficiency, management, and safety in clinical practice. They are a clear bet on the future possibilities of improving the patient experience and enhancing confidence in the operating room.

Avinent Glass works by analyzing the QR codes of the implant to be placed. Once analyzed and verified, the device uses a variety of information classified by its functionality; it is noteworthy that the application is controlled by voice instructions so that doctors can dedicate full attention to their patients and maintain the field they work in sterile. These instructions are based on four simple voice commands: OK, NEXT, BACK, and CLOSE.

– Technical Specifications: displays the description of the implant selected. Diameter, length, reference, batch and expiry.

– Warnings: this is a list of the critical aspects of the surgery that must be taken into account.

– Pre-operative checklist: a list of everything needed before starting surgery.

– Instructions: depending on the type of surgery (standard or guided), the application shows the step to be followed while performing the process correctly using the Avinent Implant System. It tells you which instrument you should take from the respective surgical box, the accessory you need (if you need it), the milling speed and depth, and the recommended torque for the implant.

– Gallery: During surgery, the doctor can take pictures of the case, which are stored automatically by the application in the Google Glass gallery. This action is executed with the “PHOTO” voice command.


This tool facilitates the professional’s work and increases patient safety, minimizing the small risks involved in interventions of this kind. There are many advantages for training and knowledge transfer, which we will examine and publish in the coming months. Remember, for now, that Google Glass is only available in the USA and UK. In Spain, we will have to wait a while for this application.

Next comes the video of the operation in which Dr. Jesús López Vilagran used this tool to perform a real surgery.
