Table 3 Error and timing

From: Current state of the art in the use of augmented reality in dentistry: a systematic review of the literature

  Field of interest Error Timing
Jiang W. OMS <  1.5-mm mean linear deviation and < 5.5-degree angular deviation  
Murugesan YP Dental cavity new algorithm improves the video accuracy by 0.30–0.40 mm. processing rate to 10–13 frames/s compared to 7–10 frames/s in existing systems  
Schreurs R. OMS translation error of 1.12–1.15 mm rotational < 3°.  
Liu WP OMS 5 mm (mean) tool tracking error  
Qu M. OMS difference between the vertical distances from the coronoid to the plane CP1 (AA′) and CP2 (AA′′) was (1.43 ± 0.13) mm in the exp. group and (2.53 ± 0.39) mm in the ctrl. Group. The average angle between the two planes was 9.39°° ± 0.75° in the exp. group  
Wang J. OMS The mean overall error of the 3-D image overlay was 0.71 mm  
Zinser MJ OMS Clinically acceptable precision for the surgical planning transfer of the maxilla (< 0.35 mm) was seen in the anteroposterior and mediolateral angles, and in relation to the skull base (< 0.35°), 60 min longer than a conventional operation.
Lin YK OMS 0.50 ± 0.33 mm, 0.96 ± 0.36 mm, 2.70 ± 1.55°, 0.33 ± 0.27 mm, and 0.86 ± 0.34 mm, respectively, for the fully edentulous mandible, and 0.46 ± 0.20 mm, 1.23 ± 0.42 mm, 3.33 ± 1.42°, 0.48 ± 0.37 mm, and 1.1 ± 0.39 mm  
Suenaga H. OMS The positional error and angular error calculated in this study were 0.77 mm and 0.686, respectively, which is almost negligible. time required for preparing the 3D models within Mimics and/or Slicer was 5–10 min.
Aichert A. Orthodontics correct alignment is recovered in about 75% of the cases  
Bruellmann DD Endodontics The overall sensitivity was about 94%. Classification accuracy for molars ranged from 65.0 to 81.2% and from 85.7 to 96.7% for premolars.  
Zhu M. OMS   additional time required for manufacture of the splints. 2 to 5 min to check the result of navigation registration process cost approximately 1 h before operation. With the increasing experience, this significant extra time related to technical issues may be reduced.
Mischkowski RA OMS mean value of 0.97 cm for average deviation between real and virtual objects using the headset as referencing method surgery time was prolonged by approximately 1 h
Ewers R. OMS 48 of 60 UMTS transmissions were finished without any interruptions in constant quality, slight interruptions were observed in 8 tests, and a complete breakdown was observed during 4 streamings that required a restart of the transmission. Resolution was sufficient to diagnose even tiny anatomic structures inside the temporomandibular joint, but orientation was hardly recognizable.  
Wierinck E. Dental cavity   students realised 50—100% more preparations in artificial teeth (depending on the type of preparation) per hour
Ewers R OMS   reduces time
