The ADEPT Study: A Peer Reviewed Research Publication

AssistDent Enamel-only Proximal caries assessmenT Study 

The ADEPT Study is a comparative study of Dentists’ ability to detect enamel-only proximal caries in bitewing radiographs with and without the use of AssistDent Artificial Intelligence software. Br Dent J 231, 481–485 (2021).

Trust AssistDent® for Professional Peace of Mind  

Peer-reviewed research in the British Dental Journal[1] shows that dentists demonstrated using AssistDent detected 71% more caries than those using radiographs alone.  In a randomised clinical trial, Dentists using AssistDent found 75.8% enamel only caries compared to 44.3% detection rate when AssistDent was not used.

Diagnosing previously unidentified disease allows you to offer an improved oral health patient pathway; demonstrable, reliable and ethical. 

AssistDent® provides proven clinical benefits in 8 seconds.  Detection with early intervention gives way to higher levels of success in reversing and remedying oral decay.

Making a Difference in the World of Dentistry

Peer Reviewed Research: Dental Evidence

Detection Today Versus Drillings and Fillings Tomorrow

No contest.  Although as witnessed every day, it’s not so simple, with a high number of cases going undetected because the signs of decay are subtle and therefore easily overlooked, assessment and analysis is challenging enough as it is and of course there is the additional factor of keeping on time and the pressure this imposes on the Dental Clinicians. 

How AssistDent® Overcomes These Common Industry Problems

By utilising artificial intelligence and advanced algorithms, AssistDent analyses a bitewing radiograph in approximately 8 to 10 seconds on average.  The software  highlights ‘Regions of Interest’ for further scrutiny.  This helpful prompt, has a very high success rate: 76% detection rate with AssistDent compared to 44% without using the AI software.

ESSENTIAL VIEWING: AssistDent® Adept Study: An Overview with Professor Hugh Devlin and Professor Keith Horner

AssistDent®: Statistically Improves the Detection of Early Enamel-Only Proximal Caries, Reducing the Need for Dental Intervention.  Giving Preventive Dentistry a BIG Boost.

This important study of practicing dentists assessing radiograph bitewings for enamel-only proximal caries, showed they achieved a 76% detection rate when prompted by AssistDent compared to 44% without AssistDent.

AssistDent helps dentists identify early enamel-only proximal caries, which can be reversed. The software is easy to integrate with normal workflows.

With AssistDent, dentists can help their patients with oral healthcare and ultimately, keep healthy teeth for longer.
