The platform’s VideaAI provides clear and comprehensible visual representations that can be shared with parents as part of the patient education process and during treatment talks.
VideaHealth, a premier dental artificial intelligence (AI) platform, has unveiled groundbreaking advancements tailored specifically for pediatric dental clinicians nationwide. These innovations are designed to elevate the standard of care provided to young patients and their parents.
With the sole FDA-cleared pediatric dental AI capabilities in its arsenal, VideaAI boasts an impressive 80% enhancement in accurate pediatric caries identification, alongside an overall clinically beneficial detection rate, the company states.
"Dental decay is the most significant unmet health treatment need among young people. And, because our mission is to support dental clinicians with the best possible dental AI for their patients, pediatrics cannot be overlooked,” Florian Hillen, CEO of VideaHealth, says in a press release. “We're thrilled to announce this massive leap forward in driving more accurate diagnoses, thereby enabling pediatric dentists to spend extra time on comfort and patient management, knowing that their diagnosis will be validated."
The impact of dental AI extends beyond diagnosis, playing a crucial role in fostering trust. VideaAI provides clear and easily comprehensible visual representations that can be shared with parents as part of the patient education process and during treatment discussions. Notably, this marks the debut of the first and only FDA-cleared dental AI pediatric algorithm available in the market.
VideaAI encompasses AI detection capabilities for pediatric caries detection in children aged 3 and above, as well as various other AI models facilitating subtle detections across different age groups. Particularly noteworthy is its ability to identify potential diseases in mixed dentition, overcoming a significant diagnostic hurdle for pediatric dentists. Moreover, VideaAI addresses prevalent issues such as attrition/grinding, broken/chipped teeth–the most common concerns for children aged 3 and above–as well as Dens Invaginatus and Widened periodontal ligament. For pediatric patients aged 12 and above, AI detections for calculus are also included.
Recent consumer data underscores the growing enthusiasm among Americans for integrating dental AI into their care. The findings shed light on parents' priorities and behaviors concerning dental care, revealing children's dental care as their top oral health concern, surpassing even their own dental needs, the press release states. Nearly 75% of parents ensure their children visit the dentist at least twice a year. Furthermore, over 60% of parents express a greater willingness to follow dentists' recommendations after learning about the benefits of AI, VideaHealth states.
Hillen says in the press release that this technology can help build trust with patients and parents. "The benefit of dental AI doesn't stop at the point of diagnosis. Just as importantly, VideaAI helps to build trust with parents,” he adds. “Our precise and easily understood visual representation can be shared with parents as a part of the patient education process and when discussing treatment recommendations."
