In the area of dentistry, there is an essential tool so that health professionals can carry out their activities with greater precision. Many professionals know it by the name dental chart, others by a dental diagram or periodontal. However, all of these names are synonymous with the odontogram.
Although odontograms on paper sheets are the best known, they are not the most suitable, for several reasons, with security being the main issue. One of the rules imposed by the Federal Council of Dentistry (FCD), is that the health professional has the patient's historical record. As it is a document that has extremely valuable information, the odontogram when made on a paper can run physical risks such as wetting, burning, tearing, among others.
With the digital odontogram, none of this will happen, since it will be integrated into a system. Ninsaúde Apolo, for example, is an online system, that is, you do not need to install anything to use it. Therefore, no matter how much your computer is damaged or needs to be formatted, none of the information in the odontogram will be lost, because you can access it on any other computer, simply by entering your access data.
At Ninsaúde Apolo, cloud platform services always encrypt stored content without any action from the client, using one or more encryption mechanisms. These same policies and management are adopted by Google and Gmail.
The fact that the system has a password also counts in terms of security. Generally, each user has a login and password, as is the case with Ninsaúde Apolo, where several users can be registered, and with this only you can change the data that you entered in the system yourself.
Still talking about paper vs. software, another point to highlight is that with digital odontogram management software, it will no longer be necessary to store hundreds of papers that take up space in your office or clinic. Many health professionals who use paper odontograms need extra space to archive all these documents, but with the use of software, they will all be safely stored in the system, not to mention the practicality of accessing them.
As in dermatological treatments, plastic surgery, or any other aesthetic procedure, in dentistry, it is also very common for health professionals to take pictures of before and after treatment, so that they can make a comparison and show the result to the patient. With the electronic medical record of Ninsaúde Apolo, it is possible to store files such as photos and videos, and in this way, these files are attached to the patient's record in a more organized and practical way, in addition to not being necessary to print on paper.
And to complete, with the digital odontogram it is also possible for the dentist to follow up on all procedures performed on the patient throughout the consultations. The advantage is in the fact that it can insert new information keeping the entire history aligned and without scribbles, unlike the paper odontogram.
If the professional uses the Ninsaúde Apolo odontogram, he can also:
- Modify the treatment status according to its progress;
- Make markings in different areas of the face of the teeth;
- Insert observations about a given treatment individually, according to the tooth;
- Select the type of illustration that will appear in the history during a given treatment (orthodontic treatment, with a brace, missing tooth or implant);
- Generate budget.
