AssistDent is an artificial intelligence (AI)-powered dental software that helps dental professionals in the diagnosis of proximal surface caries, which are carious lesions that are present in the enamel and have penetrated the dentin. It was launched in 2019 by Manchester Imaging Limited and is currently being used by community dentists to find signs of early tooth decay.
AssistDent uses deep learning algorithms to analyze dental radiographs and provide accurate and reliable diagnoses. It combines data from five of the country’s top dental schools to create a “Gold Standard” expert AI dental software application.
Benefits of AssistDent
AssistDent offers several benefits to dental professionals and patients, including:
– Improved accuracy in the diagnosis of proximal surface caries
– Early detection of tooth decay, which can help prevent the need for more invasive treatments later on
– More efficient and effective dental practices, leading to increased profitability
– Improved patient outcomes and satisfaction
Studies on AssistDent
Several studies have been conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of AssistDent in improving dentists’ ability to detect enamel-only proximal caries. The ADEPT study, for example, found that AssistDent significantly improves dentists’ ability to detect enamel-only proximal caries and could be considered as a useful tool in dental practices.
Another study found that dental students using AssistDent were better able to detect enamel-only proximal caries compared to those without the software.
