Artificial Intelligence and Digital Detail X-rays

Artificial intelligence (AI) and its importance:

AI (Artificial Intelligence) is a branch of computer science. It is a process of mimicking human intelligence based on a dynamic computer program consisting of a series of algorithms.


Artificial intelligence (AI) in dental radiology:

With the help of artificial intelligence (AI), a safe and automated analysis of dental digital X-ray images can be enabled. Unfortunately, this process is not possible with analogue X-ray images.

In just a few seconds, the program analyzes the x-ray image. It detects possible dental diseases (caries) and highlights the finding(s) on the X-ray by displaying them graphically. The software can already detect caries (tooth decay) in the early stages. As a result, the risk of caries, e.g. in the area between the teeth, which often goes undetected, unnecessarily increasing and developing into large caries decreases.


Will the dentist become redundant in the future?

No! Although artificial intelligence (AI) is slowly finding its way into dentistry and will continue to progress, the years of experience of a practicing dentist cannot be replaced by any computer program. The software is only a practical support for caries diagnostics.
