The odontogram is an indispensable tool for dental professionals. Its use is essential so that health professionals can carry out their activities with greater precision.
The odontogram is also known by other names, among them are dental chart, dental diagram, and periodontal. The odontogram works as the patient's oral quality document, and it contains all actions performed by the health professional. Therefore, it becomes an essential tool not only for clinical practice but also for the professional's legal protection.
After all, what is the importance of the odontogram?
The use of an odontogram is extremely important, as it will contain information such as:
- Which teeth need treatment;
- What are the possible treatments for certain cases;
- What previous treatments and procedures have already been performed on the patient.
The health professional will also be able to monitor the evolution of the patient's condition more precisely, which helps to more easily identify each patient seen at the clinic or office.
Another important point about the odontogram is that it can protect the health professional from possible lawsuits. Let's say a patient is not satisfied with the treatment and decides to file a lawsuit against the health professional or clinic. In this case, the odontogram will serve as proof of everything that was done before and during the treatment.
Paper odontogram X Digital odontogram
Although odontograms on paper sheets are the best known, they are not the most suitable, for several reasons, with the issue of security being the main reason. 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.
There are even softwares for clinics where the odontogram is part of its functionalities, such as the medical software Ninsaúde Apolo, which now also has this new feature. The advantage of using a digital odontogram that is linked to the software used in the clinic is that the health professional can insert all the patient's information, preventing information from being dispersed or being lost.
If you still don't know the clinical software Ninsaúde Apolo, take advantage of this opportunity and also check out the features available in it, especially the new odontogram tool.
