Abstract: Digital technology provides an ideal auxiliary method for the diagnosis and treatment of dento-maxillofacial deformities. However, due to technical limitations, current digital orthognathic surgery has problems such as semi-automated image processing and insufficient utilization of 3D images. The urgent need for clinicians to improve efficiency and optimize the diagnosis and treatment has prompted a series of researches on deep learning-assisted diagnosis and treatment of dento-maxillofacial deformities, which demonstrated the great potential of applying deep learning in this field. Therefore, this paper reviewed the development history of interdisciplinary researches between deep learning and medicine at first, and then focused on the application and research advance of deep learning in the diagnosis and treatment of dento-maxillofacial deformities, and furthermore exploring the intelligent diagnosis and treatment.

Key words: Deep learning, Dento-maxillofacial deformity, Artificial intelligence, Surgical design, Three dimensional measurement
