Sensei Cloud Release 0.1.6913 (Part 1)

Sensei Cloud

Weekly Release

Build 0.1.6913  |  October 10th, 2021

This week’s Sensei Cloud updates continue to expand core application functionality and deliver on recent customer requests.

Charting Mixed Dentition

In response to customer feedback, Sensei Cloud now supports the charting of ‘mixed dentition’ - the concurrent presence of erupted primary and permanent dentition at the same arch location. This charting enhancement provides you with the ability to have the odontogram more accurately reflect the status of the patient’s anatomy resulting from over-retention of primary teeth or early eruption of permanent teeth. You can now indicate the simultaneous presence of a primary and permanent tooth pairing, as well as independently chart against each tooth.

To chart the presence of ‘mixed dentition’ in the patient’s chart, first click on the applicable tooth number and then select the new ‘Mixed Dentition Present’ charting option [Patient Tab > Clinical > Hard Tissue Chart]. The odontogram is automatically updated to display the added tooth in place of the selected tooth and adds ‘Mixed Dentition Present’ events to the patient’s clinical history (e.g., clinical event notes). This new tooth is now available for charting, as with all other dentition in the chart. NOTE: You must be in ‘Current’ charting mode and have selected a tooth that has a naturally-occurring successor (or predecessor). IMPORTANT: This option is different from the existing ‘Change to {Primary / Permanent} {#}’ charting option, which is used to update the chart to make developmental corrections to the anatomy present, removing the existing tooth, and adding the alternate tooth.

Whenever ‘mixed dentition’ is charted, a new ‘Supernumerary / Mixed Dentition Present’ indicator is also placed in the ‘tooth grid’ area above the tooth. This icon is used to indicate the presence of multiple teeth at the same arch location, whether it be a concurrently-erupted predecessor or successor or a supernumerary tooth. Left click on the icon to access the ‘Tooth Selection’ popover, which displays the list of teeth currently available for charting at the arch location. Clicking on another tooth option updates the hard tissue chart, swapping out the currently displayed tooth for the selected one, making it available for direct review and charting. NOTE: Only the currently selected tooth is graphically displayed in the odontogram and available for charting. However, all of each tooth’s charting history is always available via the patient’s clinical history (e.g., clinical event notes). To visually display an alternate tooth, simply click the indicator and select the desired option.

We hope that these charting enhancements provide support for additional charting contexts that you may encounter in your patient population. Please let us know what works well and what additional enhancements can be made to improve your clinical documentation workflows.

Charting Supernumerary Teeth

This week’s release also includes updates that enable the charting of supernumerary teeth - the presence of ‘extra’ teeth outside of the normally-occurring series of primary and permanent teeth. This charting enhancement provides you with the ability to document the presence of and chart against hyperdontia.

To chart the presence of supernumerary teeth in the patient’s chart, first click on the applicable tooth number and then select the new ‘Supernumerary Tooth Present’ charting option [Patient Tab > Clinical > Hard Tissue Chart]. The hard tissue chart is automatically updated to display the added tooth in place of the selected tooth and adds ‘Supernumerary Tooth Present’ events to the patient’s clinical history (e.g., clinical event notes). This tooth is now available for charting, enabling you to document diagnoses or plan treatment. NOTE: You must be in ‘Current’ charting mode. When charting against a primary tooth, a primary supernumerary tooth is added to the chart. When charting against a permanent tooth, a secondary supernumerary tooth is added. You can add up to a single supernumerary tooth against each primary and permanent tooth.

As with ‘mixed dentition’ events, the ‘Supernumerary / Mixed Dentition Present’ indicator is added above the selected tooth. Click on the icon to display the current set of teeth present and available for charting at the arch location. Click on the desired tooth to update the odontogram, display the selected tooth, and make it available for review and charting. NOTE: The same icon is used to indicate the presence of mixed dentition and/or supernumerary teeth. Again, only the currently selected tooth is visually displayed in the odontogram at any given time, making it available for direct charting. As previously mentioned, each tooth’s charting history is contained within the clinical event notes (in the side panel of the Hard Tissue Chart), even when the tooth is temporarily hidden from the chart.

We hope that these updates improve the ease and efficiency with which you can document, treat, and bill for services related to supernumerary teeth. We look forward to your feedback on what additional enhancements can be made to support your charting workflows.
