Optimal Oral Health: Measure It to Manage It with Teledentistry
Dental caries is a reversible infection that is not resolved with restorative dentistry. Head, neck and oral cancer rates continue to rise. Periodontal disease starts with a biofilm-based infection that creates a wound that, in turn, induces the inflammatory cascade responsible for the disease. Teledenistry is a disruptive innovation and a rising trend. It expands the traditional dental practice. It furnishes an opportunity to provide more than prophy’s and fluoride treatments outside the traditional practice setting. With increasing research pointing to the connection between oral disease and medical conditions, our goal must change to optimal health. Early recognition ensures earlier intervention and disease prevention. Metrics can give us the power to quickly arrive at data-driven decisions to measure the impact of our work toward optimal patient health.
