Graphical Tooth Chart

In the upper left corner of the Chart Module is the graphical tooth chart. This chart visually shows the patient's teeth, as well as treatment that has been performed, is planned, or has been referred out.

To select a tooth, click on it. Click a tooth again to deselect. Click and drag to quickly select multiple teeth. Drag the slider bar under the chart to show procedure changes to the tooth chart over time.

Tooth Numbering: The default numbering system is set in Chart Module Preferences, Tooth Nomenclature.

Show Big: To view a full screen version of the chart, click the Tooth Chart drop down in the toolbar, then Show Big. See Big Graphical Tooth Chart.

Save the Tooth Chart: To save a snapshot of the chart, click the Tooth Chart drop down in the toolbar, then Save to Images. The image will be saved in the Images module under Tooth Charts, named with the save date. Snapshots are especially important for pediatric offices to see history of tooth eruption.
