A Brief Look at Teledentistry
Teledentistry enables healthcare professionals to screen patients, saving office visits for those who truly require them while simultaneously offering recommendations for dental hygiene, medications, or other treatments virtually as needed.
For some populations in particular, the advantages are extremely noticeable.
For instance, more than 56 million Americans reside in regions where there is a scarcity of dentists.
Some people are constrained by their mobility, their jobs’ rigid schedules, or their emotions, like their fear of the dentist.
In addition, teledentistry reduces costs.
In times of emergency, as as the COVID-19 epidemic, remote visits provide a secure alternative. However, due to their many benefits, they are also evolving into a permanent component of the oral health system.
A dentist can talk back and forth with a patient, the patient’s caretaker, or another dentist in real time.
A secure electronic system can be used to send photos, videos, X-rays, and other kinds of recorded information to a provider.
The doctor or nurse will then look at the information and may change the treatment plan for the patient.
Remote Patient Monitoring
A provider can receive photos, videos, X-rays, and other kinds of recorded information through a safe electronic system. The doctor or nurse will then look at the information and may change the patient’s treatment plan.
There are many ways to use smartphones and other mobile devices. People can, for example, test the pH of their saliva, which affects how likely it is that they will get cavities.
