The use of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning systems is escalating in all frontiers. AI is defined as a field of science and engineering concerned with the computational understanding of what is commonly called intelligent behaviour and with the creation of artifacts that exhibit such behaviour. Over the years, AI has changed how dentistry is practiced with computer-based diagnosis and radiological applications gaining enormous momentum.

In pediatric dentistry AI has many potential applications which would change the face of behavioural pediatric practice in future. Also, with the help of larger datasets, machine learning algorithms will only become more sophisticated over time. AI is also gaining pace in the early orthodontic tooth movement with customized AI driven appliances which would have better acceptability by the new generation. AI enabled restorative dentistry with computer-aided design computer-aided manufacturing technology is already established in adult dental practice and would emerge a boon to pediatric restorations in terms of time and aesthetics. Pain control with AI enabled devices is the new, smarter way towards injection-free pedodontic practice. Also, AI can be used to enhance the teaching and learning process for students as well as patients. The various 4D goggles, movies, animations and virtual reality-based games can be used as a behaviour modification aid effectively for pediatric patients.

Thus, a dramatic improvisation of AI based pediatric dentistry would change the way we practice as well as teach. Dentistry and oral healthcare, promisingly, is a very natural customer for artificial intelligence applications in the near future.
