Oral diseases have a significant impact on human health, often going unnoticed in their early stages. Deep learning, a promising field in artificial intelligence, has shown remarkable success in various domains, especially dentistry. This paper aims to provide an overview of recent research on deep learning applications in dentistry, with a focus on dental imaging. Deep learning algorithms perform well in difficult tasks such as image segmentation and recognition, enabling accurate identification of oral conditions and abnormalities. Integration of deep learning with other oral health data offers a holistic understanding of the relationship between oral and systemic health. However, there are still many challenges that need to be addressed.
