Helping dentists keep track of implants and share knowledge
Teeth implants need to be carried out with utmost surgical precision, and until now the knowledge and expertise has only been passed on internally. Consequently we get disparities in dental procedures, which relies heavily on the expertise of some few key individuals. Osstell wants to enable easy knowledge sharing among practicians, and even simplify and standardize the dental procedures. Boid loves simplicity and Boid loves standardization, so we couldn’t wait to dig our teeth into this project.
Complexity made simple
Osstell has developed their own measurement scale (ISQ) and tool to measure integrity between implant and bone, and it has come to be an industry standard. What the tool lacked though was a digital interface to utilize the data and keep track of implants.
The greatest caveat of being number one is that you have a lot to live up to, so the digital product has to feel just as simple as it is complex. A natural extension of an already ground breaking innovation.
Data is beautiful
Throughout the project we utilized the expertise of Osstell and conducted field research at local dental practitioners. We identified the needs and requests from the clients and concluded that there is not only a huge demand for aggregated knowledge, but also a need for practitioners to showcase their own success rates. With this in mind we set out to make the tool not only practical, but also beautiful.
The final product consists of a tile-based interface that can be customized to the user’s liking. Every tile has a context menu where you can choose how your data should be presented as well as compare it to worldwide statistics through Osstell Insights, the big data knowledge base. The practitioner can easily connect their ISQ equipment and keep track of all dental records through the app and export data at the click of a button. Over time the data gathered from ISQ measurements will map out worldwide tooth decay and bone structure integrity, making it a vital resource for health. This is just the beginning for Osstell’s quest for innovation in dental care.
