Clinical Consensus Issues in the Era of Artificial Intelligence: A Message from the Editors

The value of clinical science based on its continued and permanent development, correction or revision of views on postulates that were previously interpreted as constant, while also on considering changes or, contrary, even deeper rooting of classical paradigms, their additions and framing over time and progress.

Considering this "Ukrainian Dental Journal" continues its publishing activity, introducing domestic and international readers with new achievements in the dental field, new evidences regarding effectiveness of specific clinical approaches, and new views on the changes that await us in the future. The future that has already come, the future that will be waiting for us tomorrow.

The second issue of our periodical journal is devoted to the issue of comprehensive dental treatment of patients with various forms of developmental dentoalveolar disorders. In particular, this issue represents first time available objective data on the prevalence and main causes of delayed eruption of permanent teeth among Ukrainian children, who need targeted orthodontic interventions. In addition, the second issue of the journal includes the results of systematization of data regarding possibilities of dental rehabilitation of the pediatric patients with a diagnosis of ectodermal dysplasia, who are the youngest patients with need of dental implantation. The pages of the journal also highlight the peculiarities of orthodontic camouflage treatment based on a detailed analysis of a specific clinical case and an extensive literature review. All these topics reflect not only the need to find consensus clinical solutions for the treatment of patients with various forms of dentoalveolar disorders, but also emphasize the existing dilemma of differentiating such between the categories of adaptive "norm" and actual "pathology". In addition, dental interventions in patients with various forms of dentoalveolar anomalies are also a tool for patients socialization and improvement of their quality of life. That is why these scientific works are always relevant, and the achieved results are of unique importance!

Clinically useful for readers will also be a publication that presents an improved oral hygiene algorithm adapted to the needs of orthodontic patients with fixed types of orthodontic devices.

And final article dedicated to the modern trends of using artificial intelligence in endodontic practice: how clinically appropriate and promising are modern machine learning protocols in the dental field?

Information about all of this in the smallest details and in the format of international cooperation’s results can be found on the pages of the second issue of the "Ukrainian Dental Journal".

Nothing can stop an idea whose time has come!
