ADA ANNOUNCES DENTAL SYMPTOM CHECKER:
To start the New Year off, the ADA is revealing its newest resource for the public, ADA® Dental Symptom Checker™, which helps people make better-informed decisions about their oral health. With an intuitive interface, the application allows people to select:
Their gender and age
What part of their face or mouth symptoms are occurring
What type of symptoms they are experiencing
Any degree of pain that may be caused by their symptoms
After the various categories have been selected, the ADA Dental Symptom Checker provides a list of possible oral-health conditions. The Symptom Checker is not meant to diagnose or replace the role of the dentist. In fact, many of the conditions emphasize the importance of seeing a dentist or physician.
The ADA Dental Symptom Checker can be accessed via MouthHealthy.org, or by downloading it for iPhone® and iPad® on the App StoreSM, or Android™ devices on Google Play™.
