Many people are reluctant to visit the dentist for personal reasons. Imagine how difficult it can be for persons with disabilities, the elderly and people with special needs. This is where teledentistry can come in handy. The ability to offer certain dental services over the internet can provide much-needed services to individuals who do not have regular access to a dentist. This type of technology can also be useful for people who live in rural areas where no dental offices are located. The service can allow dentists to capture images, take clinical notes and send that information to other dentists. The consultation with the dentist is conducted live through video chatting software. If the dentist sees an issue, they will suggest an in-person visit to a local dentist for further evaluation.
Go ahead and book a televisit if you have any dental related concerns.
