Ortho.i® Advances Orthodontic Care with Innovative AI Multimodal Technology




Ortho.i® Advances Orthodontic Care with Innovative AI Multimodal Technology


AI multimodal technology in orthodontics refers to the integration of various types of data inputs, such as images, textual data, and numerical values, into a cohesive AI system that enhances diagnostic, planning, and treatment processes in orthodontics.


With a 25-year history of advancing orthodontic care, impacting thousands of patients, and gaining vast experience through research, community building, product development, and educational programs, Ortho.i® ventured into a new domain in 2019 under the leadership of Dr. Adriano Araujo. The launch of Ortho.i Robotics marked the company's introduction into artificial intelligence, aimed at augmenting orthodontists' skills and improving practice management. The initial AI tools, built using Natural Language Processing (NLP), were designed to enhance the efficiency of orthodontic tasks. With the advent of Large Language Models, these tools have evolved to integrate specific orthodontic knowledge, enabling them to communicate, generate content, and interact with users. The progression continued with the application of Machine Learning and Computer Vision technologies to analyze extensive databases of clinical images, enabling the AI to assess the quality of the images, classify malocclusions, identify issues such as crowding, midline deviations, etc, and provide treatment recommendations based on scientific research and clinical protocols. This initiative promises more productive treatments and improved life quality for both patients and the professional team, while also focusing on sustainability and social community support.


Key Aspects of AI Multimodal Technology in Orthodontics:


Image Analysis: AI systems can analyze dental images, including X-rays, CBCT scans, and photographs, to assist in diagnosing malocclusions and planning treatments. This includes the automated detection of anatomical landmarks, assessment of tooth alignment, and prediction of treatment outcomes.


Treatment Simulation: AI can simulate treatment outcomes using 3D models generated from patient scans. This helps both patients and orthodontists visualize potential results of different treatment options, making it easier to make informed decisions.


Customization of Appliances: AI algorithms can help in designing customized orthodontic devices such as clear aligners and braces. This customization can improve the fit and effectiveness of these devices.


Data Integration: By combining patient demographic data, clinical notes, and diagnostic tests, AI systems provide a more holistic view of a patient's condition, improving the overall treatment plan.


Patient Monitoring: AI can also be used for monitoring of treatment progress, analyzing changes over time and adjusting treatment plans accordingly.


This advancement not only transforms orthodontic treatment planning but also underscores Ortho.i®'s ongoing commitment to innovation in the field.
