Artificial Intelligence: Overjet Wins FDA Clearance For Its AI-Powered Software That Detects Dental Caries

Overjet’s Caries Assist software is an AI-powered dental caries detection and outlining software for chairside aid and patient communication.

Overjet analyzed more than 7,000 tooth surfaces with the aid of Overjet Caries Assist. It was observed that dentists were able to detect 32% more tooth surfaces containing caries. Accurate detection of caries reduces the rate of missed lesions.

The significance of gum disease has been highlighted in a new Delta Dental study that showed gum disease has a close link to heart disease, diabetes, lung illness, and dementia, among other serious health issues.

Furthermore, according to the CDC, periodontal disease and dental caries (bone loss and cavities) are two of the biggest threats to dental health.

Overjet makes it mark on AI-powered dental investigations

Dental Assist and Dental Caries together give Overjet the distinction of becoming the first and only dental AI company with FDA-cleared technology able to address both bone level measurement with periodontal disease and dental caries detection, as well as quantification for bone level and outline with caries.

Overjet’s technology is commercially available and presents dental practices with accurate findings, identifying anatomical structures and common pathologies, and providing instant visualizations while improving patient-dentist communication.

“We’ve been impressed with Overjet’s ability to help our patients understand and visualize what’s going on in their mouth,” said Dr. Eric Tobler, National Clinical Director of Mortenson Dental Partners, one of the largest dental groups in the US.
