Artificial intelligence (AI) is the ability of a digital computer or computer-controlled robot to perform tasks commonly associated with intelligent beings. There is marked increase in evolution of AI from the last decade, which has been showing tremendous improvement and dentistry is no exception. AI has its importance in dentistry, especially in oral medicine and radiology, which includes patient diagnosis, storage of patient data, and the assessment of genetic information which will provide improved healthcare for patients. Regardless of many improvements and advances, AI is still in its teething stage, but its potential is boundless. This article reviews on how this technology is tremendously utilized for easy and early diagnosis, proper treatment of lesions of oral cavity, advanced breakthroughs in image recognition techniques, screening of suspicious premalignant, and malignant changes of oral cavity with satisfying outcome. A thorough knowledge regarding the adaptation of technology will not only help in better and precise patient care but also reducing the work burden of the clinician.
