Sensei Cloud enables you to chart the presence and conditions of Supernumerary, or "extra" teeth outside of the normally-occurring series of primary and permanent teeth (hyperdontia).
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.
To chart the presence of supernumerary teeth:
Select Patient > Clinical > Hard Tissue Chart > Current mode.
Click on the applicable tooth number and then select Supernumerary Tooth Present. The hard tissue chart is updated to display the added tooth, and a Supernumerary / Mixed Dentition Present indicator is placed in the tooth grid above the tooth.
Click the icon to access the tooth-selection popover, which displays the list of teeth currently available for charting at the arch location.
- Click on a tooth option to update the hard tissue chart, swapping the currently displayed tooth for the selected one, making it available for review and charting.
Note: Only the currently-selected tooth is displayed and available for charting; however, each tooth’s charting history is available via the patient’s clinical history (clinical event notes).
Clinical Event Notes Entry
When you chart supernumerary teeth, a Supernumerary Tooth Present event is automatically added to the patient’s clinical history (clinical event notes). These notes are visible regardless of which tooth is selected or displayed.
