Instant Dentist revolutionises remote dental check-ups

Worried about your next visit to the dentist? Don’t worry - the future of dental care, could be in your pocket! Instant Dentist is set to revolutionise remote dental check-ups. Earlier this year, Instant Dentist helped adults across the nation by providing free digital emergency assessments for those affected by the COVID-19 out- break. Now, the leading teledentistry platform is revolutionising remote den- tal care with the launch of their inno- vative Smart Dental Scope: a clinical grade, high-resolution, wireless intra- oral camera enabling advanced dental assessments at home.

Instant Dentist is now the UK’s first teledentistry platform to launch a per- sonal intraoral camera device, provid- ing users with a new level of bespoke dental care from the comfort of home. The new clinical-grade Smart Dental Scope and Smart Dental Scope As- sistant app (available for iOS) were designed specifically to help users inspect and track hard- to-reach areas of their mouth without the need to physically visit their dentist. Once paired with the smartphone app, the intraoral Smart Dental Scope captures high resolution pho- tos and videos of the least visible teeth and gum areas, which can then be reviewed by a digital dentist for profes- sional assessment and advice. The Instant Dentist Smart Dental Scope integrates a high resolution camera tip with bright LED lighting and eas- ily connects to smartphones thanks to the accompanying Smart Dental Scope Assistant app. This integration and the full-screen display are some of the many features that distinguish this device and its use from other at-home solutions. The practical, hand-held design al- lows for easy and detailed inspection of teeth and gums. For the first time ever, users can detect problems in their earliest stage with clinical ac-


curacy from the comfort of home, ac- cessing hard-to-reach areas to detect and reverse oral disease symptoms without repeated trips to the dentist’s office. Photos and videos captured with the help of the smartphone app can then be quickly uploaded to the Instant Dentist platform and submit- ted for expert review to receive imme- diate access to emergency advice and reassurance from a trusted dentist. Together with the app plugged solu- tion, the personal, clinical-grade intra- oral camera presents a unique com- plementary measure alongside regular dentist appointments, as it allows op- timised monitoring and the prevention of potential issues at an early stage. As a result, it is ideal for additional care next to in-clinic treatments, sav- ing time and money between appoint- ments. Whether due to a busy work schedule, accessibility issues, or bal- ancing parenting and work life: the

“The most serious dental conditions often happen at the back of the mouth, such as gum disease, tooth decay, peri-implantitis and even oral cancer. With the dental scope, these problems can be detected at their earliest stage and prevented from worsening,” ex- plained Dr. Aalok Y. Shukla, CEO and co-founder of Instant Dentist.

50% of adults suffer from gum disease and many of these find it difficult to pay the cost of a professional den- tist or make the time for an appointment.

With conditions such as these being preventable and able to be improved from home, there is a growing need for accessible, empowering self-care that puts users in control rather than solely relying on physical practices. Instant Dentist allows users to receive their expertise quickly and from the comfort of their own home.
