The intended use of the Vigidental web-application is to assess and monitor the oral and dentures hygiene of patients in institutions. This approach is part of an oral health prevention program recommended by national and international health authorities in Europe. This approach is also included in the approval process for retirement homes by certain local authorities (e.g. Iriscare in the Brussels region).

For a nursing home, Vigidental represents a comprehensive oral and dental prevention program that anticipates and limits the need for care, enables teleconsultation with the dentist and facilitates the organization of necessary care. In concrete terms, Vigidental makes it possible to measure the impact of the program in an institution, because it is based on monitoring the oral health of its own residents.
