Telehealth Q & A

What is telehealth?

Telehealth, also known as telemedicine, is a type of health care utilizing electronic technologies, such as smartphones, web cameras, computers, and tablets to conduct medical consultations and appointments over the internet. 

Telehealth first came onto the scene more than 40 years ago and used telephones to conduct appointments. It’s become increasingly popular over the course of the last decade, thanks to advances in communications technology, like the internet. 

In addition to being convenient, telehealth allows you to access the expert opinion of doctors and specialists who you might not have the opportunity to meet with otherwise. 

What is telehealth used for?

The team at Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery Associates and Advanced Dental Implants uses telehealth for several purposes, including:

  • Initial consultations
  • Diagnosis of specific oral and maxillofacial problems
  • Diagnostic imaging (X-ray and CT scan) review
  • Patient monitoring
  • Post-surgical follow-ups
  • Coordinating care between providers

The team also uses telehealth services to educate their patients on various treatment options and to provide support. Telehealth appointments also present an opportunity for you to ask questions and discuss any concerns or unusual symptoms you’re experiencing. 

What are the advantages of telehealth?

The most obvious advantage of telehealth is that it provides you one-on-one access to your oral and maxillofacial surgeon. This saves you the hassle of leaving a message with the office staff and waiting around for a call. 

Additionally, telehealth is quick and convenient. There’s no traffic to deal with on your commute, and you don’t have to sit in a waiting room before your appointment. 

Because telehealth appointments use a secure network, you can also feel confident knowing your medical and personal information are safe and protected. Last, but not least, telehealth is usually covered by insurance, so you don’t have to worry about exorbitant out-of-pocket costs.

What type of equipment do I need to participate in telehealth?

To participate in a telehealth appointment, you need access to a smartphone or an internet connection and a web camera. Once connected, you and your provider can talk about any concerns you have. 

Your virtual appointment is just like an in-person visit. Your surgeon Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery Associates and Advanced Dental Implants can see your mouth, teeth, and jaw, and determine the appropriate treatment options.
