RELEASE: More precise and human dentistry: this is how artificial intelligence revolutionizes the dental sector

(Information sent by the signatory company)

Barcelona, ​​March 5, 2024.- In a context of accelerated technological progress, artificial intelligence has emerged as one of the technologies with the greatest potential to transform our society. Consequently, there are many sectors that are already incorporating it into their activity, and dentistry is one of them. The industry, in fact, has been betting for years on new technologies such as the intraoral scanner or the 3D dental CT.

From computer programs to robots to perform dental surgeries, the artificial intelligence solutions on the market are varied and will increase as the technology matures. “We are following the same steps as general medicine,” says Dr. Baptiste Chailan, medical director of Dental Institutes, who points out that in almost half of his clinics he is carrying out a pilot test with a computer program that explains their x-rays to patients. dental in a more understandable and sophisticated way.

The patient experience is precisely one of the areas that seeks to be improved with technological advances, as well as greater precision in diagnosis, the development of ultra-personalized treatments and an optimization of clinic workflows. Remote dentistry is also on the horizon, although some experts consulted, for the moment, see it as difficult beyond initial emergency and follow-up consultations.

A better patient experience

Less invasive techniques, improved diagnostic capabilities and more efficient treatments are some of the advantages for patients of the technological modernization that dental clinics are experiencing. Dentists are also seeing how their work is simplified, such as having to explain a panoramic x-ray.

Sometimes it can be a challenge to know how to convey complex information to the patient in an understandable way. “In the old days, we would draw pictures or use markers on the monitor; Now, we have artificial intelligence that highlights, in a visual and didactic way, the relevant elements of an orthopantomography, such as an infection zone,” says Dr. Chailan about the computer program that they have implemented in some of their clinics. dental procedures, although he points out that "it is not a diagnostic tool, but rather an element that helps our doctors to carry it out, reducing the small margin of human error and making it easier for them to make the patient aware of the pathologies they have."

AI solutions are also helping professionals in the sector to identify their patients' implants, obtaining their reference and connection through image processing. Also to determine the length of the root in the bone to design endodontic treatments, plan surgeries, automate administrative tasks and even place implants.

The impact of artificial intelligence in dentistry will continue to evolve as new applications emerge. “I see the near future with technology that makes it easier for us to work in the mouth without human error, as some robotic systems already allow in general surgery interventions, especially gastric and cardiovascular,” says Dr. Chailan.
