Artificial Intelligence in Dentistry


  • Neil Wood


acquisition, prognostication


The development and progression in artificial intelligence has been rapid over the past decade. The expansion of artificial intelligence applications into areas that were previously thought exclusive to human control and expertise is now a measurable phenomenon. This is largely facilitated by rapid advances in data acquisition and consumption, machine learning, and computing infrastructure improvements. The intention to introduce artificial intelligence applications into medicine and dentistry currently centers around
patient care improvement, specifically to diagnostic capacity and prognostication, and to assist by providing tools for advanced decision making and even for treating patients remotely. This is an extremely complex field with close working relationships between various clinicians, researchers, and engineers.
