Root tips as a condition

We want to be able to add root tips as a condition for charting purposes. Also need a graphic for it. This would enable us to have a more complete picture of the patients mouth.

    I would love to see retained root tip added as it would make our charting more correct and that is very important in treatment and treatment planning

    This NEEDS to be an option--I am a RDH at a Periodontist's office, and we rely on accurate dental charting for treatment plans. PLEASE modify your charting ability, Dentrix, for this to be a possibility! (broken off/lost tooth crowns with retained root tips--PLEASE!)

    it says that our feedback is appreciated and yet it has been over 3 years since this was requested and nothing has been done about it. Apparently Dentrix does not understand the GRAVE importance of how a chart needs to ACCURATELY reflect the situation in the mouth. Root tips are neither a whole tooth or a missing tooth as has been previously pointed out. It is ESSENTIAL to be able to show that there is no crown of the tooth, that there are just root tips where there used to be a tooth. THIS CANNOT BE A DIFFICULT THING TO CHANGE..

    I teach at a hygiene school, and this would be incredibly helpful.

    WE need to be able to chart exiting residual root tips or grossly carious root tips. What about findings on CBCT , remaining root tips from a previous EXT, or pathology?  Dentrix we are waiting for this update, other powerful dental software programs are already doing this and with the GP now utilizing CBCT more we need to be able to incorporate these findings.

    This has been a suggested change, it's listed under root tips as conditions, please add your vote to the suggestion already in place.

    Would like graphic in chart to show as actual retained root not missing or as a whole tooth. Thanks!

    Easy to program - just remove the crown from the root in the graphic!

    Desperate need, we see it a lot in our clinic and have no way to chart correctly.

    I agree with all of the posters...this is one of the MOST common conditions and it seems as it there would be an easy way to do it. Make the graphic remove the top of the tooth with a black jagged line at the gumline. It is a pain not having this condition charted correctly.

    Wow these posts are from 2010 and we are in 2015 and still no retained root code or graphic....So simple to do and Dentrix is still ignoring our request. I thought choosing the big dental software company meant these issues could be dealt with??
