The Charting Menu can be accessed by right clicking on a tooth within the patients chart. Notice that the tooth will be highlighted to confirm that the correct selection was made. The charting menu will act as the platform for entering any procedures or annotations to the patient's record. Before using the charting menu, select the correct view within the dental tab. Procedures that were completed outside of the office should be recorded in the Patient Chart. Procedures completed in the office should be charted within the Completed Procedures. Items that are planned for the future should be recorded under the treatment plan chart.
The Supernumerary option in the Charting Options Menu creates a graphical supernumerary tooth in addition to the regular tooth. Right click on the permanent tooth and select the Supernumerary option to create the extra tooth graphic.
A Supernumerary tooth will appear directly above the selected tooth on the patient's chart. This graphic can not be changed or moved like the other teeth in the MacPractice system. Supernumerary teeth will appear in Charting with a tooth image above each tooth number. The supernumerary tooth will be assigned the designated tooth number based on the Tooth Number Reference.
If a Supernumerary was accidentally added to a tooth, it can easily be deleted by selecting the code in the Clinical Note Table and pressing the delete key on the keyboard. View the Extraction section of the charting menu if the supernumerary needs to be extracted. To complete any other procedures on a supernumerary tooth, please go to the ledger to enter the charge.
