Training in the application of dental anesthesia has traditionally been overseen by experienced teachers and requires the use of students to undergo this procedure. Against this we have developed a simulator that allows the procedure referred to and which has conditions similar to the real, also part of the project as a digital file (3D) of the elements of the simulator was obtained. The system consists dental simulator comprises a dummy that includes sensors for detecting anesthesia and electronic cards that perform processing and reproduce the desired sounds.
