Getting good quality dental images is vital to doing a fruitful remote dental consult or more popularly known as a tele-dental consult. Since the dentist is able to identify and diagnose the dental condition based on the history and examination (in case of tele-dentistry, it is by the pictures or videos of the oral cavity) a lot relies on the quality of these. Good Quality images here are in terms of good lighting, coverage of all teeth of interest, alignment of the image, correct angle etc.
Dentists on the other side of the screen need the image output to be comprehendible enough, so they are able to give the best advice and prescribe the best suited therapies. This way, only those genuinely needing a visit to a clinic for a detailed examination, radiographs or procedures would be advised to do so.
In this scenario, Toothlens helps in two ways.
One, the dental image capturing is standardized. The image capturing is guided by the Toothlens process guidelines. So, the images captured with Toothlens are supportive to the dentists in doing a good dental examination remotely.
Secondly, the images are annotated and marked by the AI backed Toothlens check technology. The application marks the cavities and tartars as annotations on the images. This helps in a first level dental screening, enabling the dentists to take quick decisions and reach to correct diagnosis faster.
In addition to these, when a patient has undergone a procedure, with the help of Toothlens, they can monitor the progress of the therapy easily.
Toothlens also helps in behaviour modification with visual feedback of their dental health condition.
All in all, Toothlens makes life easier for tele dentists. It helps the patients in timely intervention and planning their dental health better. This way the dentists as well as the patients have a better control of care in enhancing dental health.
