Artificial intelligence (AI) has arrived at the dental clinic. Dental AI can now identify anatomy and disease with incredible levels of precision and present findings with compelling visuals for patient communication. The technology is poised to redefine how dental clinicians are trained, practices operate, and insurers reimburse. In this course, clinicians and scientists working at the vanguard of this technology will share the current capabilities of the technology and how clinical providers are using dental AI today in their operations.
There is a huge opportunity for dental offices to use AI for the diagnosis and treatment of periodontitis. AI not only provides more objective data for disease diagnosis, but it also provides visuals to help patients understand the disease process. And clearly we need help with diagnosis and case acceptance. While 47% of American adults over the age of 30 have chronic periodontitis, only 8% of patients get treatment planned for initial periodontal therapy (D4341 and D4342). Of that 8%, only half accept the treatment. With AI’s done-for-you data collection, treatment planning in the post-antibiotic age is the next step.
Learn how to treat your patients with long-term success using prescription tray delivery of hydrogen peroxide gel deep into periodontal pockets. We review the science behind Rx tray delivery of peroxide as well as easy case presentation strategies to improve patient health.
