Dental ArtIficial intelligence
Artificial Intelligence, or AI, is increasingly used in healthcare to provide superior results in diagnosing and treating a wide range of conditions. Robotic surgery, a form of dental AI, enhances the accuracy of many types of oral surgery.
Britannica.com defines Artificial intelligence as “the ability of a computer or robot controlled by a computer to do tasks that are usually done by humans.”
Artificial Intelligence in Oral Surgery
Several forms of AI are used in oral surgery, each offering specific tools to improve outcomes and patient satisfaction. At Aligned Oral and Facial Surgery, using artificial intelligenc allows us to more accurately diagnose our patients, create treatment plans, and devote more time to providing excellent care. The precision of AI also guides oral surgeons in determining and using the optimal approach to each procedure and eliminating human error.
The Future of Dentistry
AI is developed by “teaching” a computer system to read and interpret x-rays, use software to outline and illustrate treatment plans, and guide surgeons during procedures.
The diagnostic potential of AI is virtually unlimited because it is based on the combined knowledge of thousands of human diagnosticians and oral surgeons. Their skills and talents sharpen the understanding of dental AI diagnostic programs, creating a diagnostic performance that surpasses any individual. At Aligned Oral and Facial Surgery, we use diagnostic AI to confirm diagnoses and ensure nothing is missed. It is an adjunct to our experience and knowledge, acting as a “second opinion” for every patient.
AI in oral surgery encourages patient/surgeon collaboration and patient confidence in their surgeon. Our AI software systems can display digital images to patients during their visits so they can see their teeth, jawbone, and soft tissues. AI imaging illustrates the severity and location of detected issues in real-time, allowing Dr. Caloss to review the diagnosis and treatment plan with patients. Patient understanding is increased, helping them make informed decisions about their oral health care.
Robotics is one of the most exciting forms of dental AI. Surgical tools are guided by robotics and AI software to ensure the precision placement of dental implants, improve the accuracy of treatments, and diminish the chance of error.
