How can Artificial Intelligence, applied to Dental images/X-Rays, help minimize errors in dentistry? – Oral Health Group

AI is the technology that enables machines to interpret human language, gain knowledge through experience, and make predictions. Most of us have probably been astonished by a computers’ capacity to identify certain human faces, even being blurry, partially veiled, or facing in the opposite direction. Dental AI similarly develops the ability to recognize anomalies that are partially visible or evident from specific angles by comparing enormous numbers of previously taken  2D or 3D dental images to what your patient presented today.

In the early identification and treatment of oral problems, dentists seek to combine their skills, training with technology and the support mechanism surrounding them to present  a proper treatment plan to their patient.  Time pressures, office and personal distractions or a human’s ability to only distinguish between 30-50 shades of grey compared to 250 shades of grey by Artificial Intelligence make the establishment of this treatment plan, complex at best; and, the patient still has to accept the plan.  Why not utilize the benefit of a virtual assistant? Let Diagnocat be your virtual assistant.

Radiography, intraoral scanning, and facial images frequently give dental professionals an overwhelming amount of raw data.AI-driven software can assist in effectively making sense of this data, which can be used for:

AI algorithms are used to systematically detect dental problems, such as caries, failures of endodontic treatments, periodontitis, and even “Rare Pathologies”. This can help to reduce the number of missed diagnoses, as well as improve the accuracy of the overall diagnosis. AI solutions such as Diagnocat are playing a crucial role in minimizing potential detection errors and translating complex dental matters to a clear picture the patient may comprehend.


Diagnocat’s dental AI imaging technology identifies over 65 common dental conditions on Intraoral X-Rays, Panoramic images and CBCT’s, including caries, calculus, periapical lesions and identifying rare pathologies on the Panoramic and CBCT images. Competitors struggle to reach double digits.  Diagnocat offers the only 2D and 3D artificial intelligence solutions in the dental market!

What solutions does Diagnocat AI offer dentists? 

Radiological reports

An oral radiology expert typically spends at least 30 minutes reviewing a CBCT before returning the report to the dental practice, which can take several days/weeks and carries a cost with it. Within 10 seconds, for 2D images and 4-6 minutes for CBCT scans, Diagnocat generates radiological findings of disorders; these reports serve as a rapid screening tool for common dental pathologies. Artificial intelligence aids in the dentist’s analysis and identifies any issues that are found, allowing dental practitioners to work more efficiently.

STL/3D segmentation and IOS integration

Completely automatic segmentation and creation of 3D STL models from the CBCT DICOM files (with simultaneous segmentation of the individual structures). Fully automated merging of the CBCT roots with the IOS crowns and superimposition creates the first of its kind.  Creating these 3D models utilizing the Diagnocat software is the first step before further in-depth planning, modeling in specialized software, or printing the model with a 3D printer. Segmentation makes it possible for a doctor to see anatomical details, enhance the clinical presentation, and—most importantly—demonstrate these things to the patient.

Collaboration Tool

The Diagnocat Collaboration Tool enables simultaneous participation of several professionals in a clinical case discussion. They don’t need to be in the clinic to do this because they can connect remotely via a computer or mobile device. The tool assists in sharing and viewing large files effectively without expensive software.

In a world where patient safety is always the number one priority, low cost products like Diagnocat are invaluable. So if you’re looking for a way to improve the care you’re giving, the case acceptance within your practice and the safety of your patients, AI is a great place to start. It probably wouldn’t be a bad idea for every dentist to get a second, trusted opinion from an AI virtual assistant.
