CAD/CAM and 3D printing technologies are not a new concept in the dentistry field but have allowed for the introduction of methods which previously would not have been reliable and attractive because of numerous limitations. This technology has changed the global development of dental cone beam CT, 3D printing technology, and CAD/CAM in dentistry, and the multiple applications resulting from the ideas have been reintroduced by several technicians and doctors, especially regarding the placement of implants, design and manufacturing of prostheses, planning of orthodontics, diagnosis before orthognathics, and even in the reconstruction of the head and neck region. After a lot of trial and error, we have now been introduced to digitally guided implant installation, facial/teeth scanning, zirconia crowns using CAD/CAM, staged orthodontic treatments using virtual planning, virtual surgery for orthognathics, and reconstruction of the head and neck with 3D printing.
To allow for further development of new applications based on these techniques, we need to consolidate knowledge—not only regarding laboratory-based findings, but clinical evidence of success is also important.
This Special Issue of the journal Applied Sciences “Application of CAD/CAM and 3D Printing Technologies in Dentistry” aims to cover recent advances in the development and application of technologies of any type that have demonstrated success through their routine application in clinics.
