Abstract

Objective Reliability of intra-oral camera using teledentistry in screening of oral diseases. Methodology A trained and calibrated examiner used intra-oral camera to capture videos of oral cavity along with clinical examination to evaluate caries, plaque, calculus, tooth wear and fluorosis, stains in children. Results The mean DT and DMFT were significantly higher with use of intra-oral camera than with clinical examination (p = 0.001 and 0.001) respectively. A positive strong significant correlation was seen between intra-oral camera and clinical examination with respect to DT, MT, FT and DMFT (r = 0.721, p < 0.001; r = 0.908, p < 0.001; r = 0.869, p < 0.001; r = 0.876, p < 0.001) respectively. Reliability of intra-oral camera when compared with clinical examination varied from substantial to almost perfect agreement various oral conditions. Disclosed immature plaque was not clear while mature plaque was clearly demonstrated. Conclusion/recommendations Intra-oral camera was shown to be a reliable tool to identify common oral diseases. Further studies involving applications like sealant retention, pre-malignant lesions, recurrent apthae, gingival recession and dental malocclusion and effectiveness in regular screening are needed.
