Robotic surgery is no longer a fiction and its clinical applications are rapidly developing. Robotic surgery is increasingly used because of its minimal invasiveness. This article provides an overview of robotic surgery and its current applications in oral and maxillofacial surgery and implant dentistry. Robotic surgery is constantly evolving, and its applications are continuously expanding. Recently, robot-assisted surgery has been used for dental implant placement. In the United States, the first robotic dental surgery system was cleared by the Food and Drug Administration for dental implant procedures in 2017. At the end of 2017, the world's first autonomous dental implant placement system was developed by Zhao and colleagues in China. This so-called intelligent robot has a high degree of autonomy, can automatically adjust during intraoperative procedures, and can execute surgical tasks directly on patients without any apparent control by a surgeon.
