New England Dental Group announced it’s partnered with Overjet to add AI-powered X-ray analysis and clinical insights to its 10 practices.
The FDA-cleared AI technology outlines decay, quantifies bone levels, detects calculus and draws the eye to areas that require a closer look.
It’s a powerful tool for dentists as they diagnose and provides a compelling visual aid for patients.
“We truly believe that technology is a partner in healthcare,” said GT Thiagarajah, director of operations at New England Dental Group. “It’s a no-brainer to add Overjet’s AI to help our doctors provide even better care.”
“New England Dental Group’s mission is to provide an unmatched patient experience with exceptional compassion and state-of-the-art technology,” said Teresa Dolan, DDS, chief dental officer at Overjet. “We’re proud to help them achieve that goal by providing a solution that helps doctors with their clinical decision-making and patient education.”
When people see the AI analysis of their dental X-rays, they better understand where they have cavities and indications of periodontal (gum) disease. Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss, according to the American Dental Association. Almost half of Americans aged 30 and older have some form of periodontal disease, and the percentage jumps to 70% of people aged 65 and older, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
In addition to analyzing and annotating X-rays in seconds, Overjet also reviews radiographs from prior visits and integrates with the practice management system to provide additional insights to assist in patient care.
