As the world has continued to grow, evolve, and adopt new technology, society as a whole has undergone a substantial transformation. The way we interact, communicate, and even think has been changed by the technological advances of the 21st century. These advancements in technology have led to new and innovative ways of approaching various tasks and industries – including dentistry.
Many studies recently published in The Journal of the American Dental Association (JADA) have suggested that AI technology is becoming increasingly popular in the field, with many dental professionals finding it to be helpful in a number of ways. Some of the most common applications for AI in dentistry include disease detection, treatment planning, and even hygienic habit tracking.
At Palm Tree Dentistry in Pearl Harbor, FL, we have been keeping up with the latest advancements in dental technology—including AI. Our team is committed to providing our patients with the best possible care, and we believe that incorporating new and innovative technologies is one way to help us achieve this goal. One of the innovative technologies we have adopted in our office is Pearl. We encourage you to learn more about Pearl below! If you have any questions about our AI, contact our team today!
What is Pearl AI?
Pearl AI is a multi-use artificial intelligence software that can be used in various realms of the dental field; from dental offices to prosthetic labs, and even clinical insurance providers, Pearl has made groundbreaking contributions in each area in which it has been implemented.
In the realm of dental offices, Pearl AI functions as a digital assistant to dentists. It can be used to detect abnormalities, diagnose diseases, and even make suggestions for treatment. Pearl AI can also be used to streamline the abilities of the dentist and confirm findings in real time.
Currently, Pearl’s in-office applications are provided in two separate software packages; this is Second Opinion and Practice Intelligence.
Pearl’s second opinion software is able to detect a number of different conditions, including tooth decay, gum disease, and even oral cancer. In addition to its ability to detect diseases, Pearl works as the ultimate assistant for dental professionals by providing immediate detailed analysis—pinpointing areas of bone loss, enamel erosion, and tartar accumulation. The software is constantly learning and updating its knowledge base, meaning that it is always able to provide the most up-to-date information to dental professionals. This makes Pearl Second Opinion an invaluable tool in the fight against oral disease.
Practice Intelligence is a software application designed to identify the presence of irregularities in patients’ x-ray imaging and use these findings to diagnose potential conditions. From there, the software enters patient data into a central database where the patient is flagged for treatment needs. In addition to this, Practice Intelligence also offers a number of other features aimed at streamlining practice processes, such as ensuring appointments are scheduled for any detected conditions and keeping these records up-to-date.
With Pearl taking the lead in performing these operations, this gives our team more time to connect with patients, answer questions, and deliver quality care.
