Now with AssistDent® dentists can significantly increase detection rates of this condition and at the same time identify its presence earlier, when preventive treatment can reverse the disease and improve overall patient oral health.
AssistDent® was the first product to be launched from Manchester Imaging Ltd., a spin-out company from The University of Manchester School of Dentistry and the Faculty of Imaging Science.

How AssistDent benefits Dentists, Patients and Dental Practices
What does AssistDent do?
Dentists everywhere are putting more emphasis on preventive treatment and minimum intervention. Yet in the case of enamel-only proximal caries, early-stage identification is not proving to be an easy task.
When detected early, the disease can be reversed by non-invasive means, but the subtle patterns on bitewing radiographs that represent demineralisation are hard to spot and all too often are missed.
AssistDent® launched in 2019 incorporating advanced machine learning algorithms. It has been developed to tackle the bitewing challenge head-on and has subsequently been proven to do its job extremely effectively.
A recent study of practicing dentists assessing bitewings for enamel-only proximal caries showed they achieved a 76% detection rate when prompted by AssistDent® compared to 44% without the use of AssistDent.
