about the benefits of AssistDent AI technology for dentistry

But now, with AssistDent, dentists can increase detection rates of the condition considerably – and at the same time identify its presence earlier, when preventive treatment can reverse the disease and improve overall patient oral health.

AssistDent is the first product from Manchester Imaging, a spin-out from The University of Manchester School of Dentistry and the Faculty of Imaging Science.

What does AssistDent do?

AssistDent Setup and Purchase

Dentists everywhere are putting more emphasis on preventive treatment and minimum intervention. But in the case of enamel-only proximal caries, early-stage identification is not proving easy.

If 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 and incorporating advanced machine learning algorithms, 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 AssistDent.

Dentistry expertise teams up with
Imaging Sciences

Based on a collaboration between The University of Manchester School of Dentistry and the Faculty of Imaging Sciences, Manchester Imaging was established in 2014 to focus on preventive dentistry.

AssistDent, the company’s first commercial product, was launched in 2019. It is being used by community dentists to help find signs of tooth decay earlier and by university dental schools to train dental students.

The company has a proven track record of the design, development and deployment of artificial intelligence systems for dental image analysis.
