Teledentistry, Clinical data, telecommunications


In order to provide dental consultations and treatment planning, teledentistry combines the fields of telecommunications and dentistry. Clinical data and images are exchanged over long distances. Teledentistry has the potential to enhance oral healthcare delivery, increase accessibility, and reduce costs. Additionally, it might end the differences in oral health care that exist between urban and rural areas. The present evidence that is available in the literature is reviewed in this article, together with the history, justification, scope, foundation, and prerequisites of teledentistry. The future of this cutting-edge and alternative approach to providing dental treatment is also covered in this article, along with the ethical and legal concerns surrounding the practice of teledentistry.
