Dental artificial intelligence (AI) company Overjet has announced the launch of its latest innovation–-Overjet for Kids. This United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-cleared technology has been specifically designed to detect, outline, and quantify tooth decay for pediatric patients, according to a press release from the company. This technology is now suitable for pediatric patients ages 4 and up.

Overjet for Kids will enable clinicians to see tooth decay in x-rays before it becomes an ongoing or painful issue for pediatric patients, per the press release.

“Every parent wants to be confident that their child is getting the world’s best dental care,” Chief Dental Officer of Overjet, Dr Teresa Dolan said in the press release. “But prior to this technology, there was no way for parents to see what a dentist sees in their child’s x-ray, which can lead some parents to not understand the problem or even decline necessary treatment. Overjet for Kids empowers them to make truly informed decisions, setting kids up for a lifetime of good oral health.”

The artificial intelligence is designed to analyze both primary and permanent teeth, making it a boon for pediatric patients who may have a mix of both. It then highlights its findings in vivid color to ensure clarity and understanding for younger patients, according to the press release.

“My favorite thing about Overjet for Kids is the early detection,” Overjet customer Dr Matt Hicks said in the press release. “If we catch it early, kids can change their habits at home first, before we have to go in and do any irreversible work. And, at the same time, our case acceptance has gone up, because parents can just see so much more.”

Charting Assist from Overjet, also enables the AI to detect the enamel, pulp, crowns, and fillings inside the patient’s mouth to give a more robust look at the entire oral environment. To learn more about Overjet for Kids, visit the website here.
