From the introduction of the first commercially available in-office CAD/CAM (Computer-Aided Design/Computer-Aided Manufacturing) system in the late 80s, digital dentistry has experienced a dramatic growth and is now a reality in most research and clinical settings. The digital workflow has been a game changer in many aspects involving CAD/CAM technology, digital imaging systems, and patients and practice management software. The integration of different digital tools greatly increased the extent of what is possible in almost every branch of dentistry. In orthodontics, the digital workflow can be applied at every stage from diagnosis to treatment planning, appliance design, and manufacturing, as well as in treatment distance monitoring. Integration of CBCT (Cone Beam Computed Tomography) with CAD/CAM technology allowed static and dynamic guided implant surgery protocols, as well as guided endodontic protocols. In conservative dentistry and prosthodontics, the integration of DSD (Digital Smile Design) and CAD/CAM technology has open countless options for aesthetic, minimally invasive in lab or chairside solutions, designed and manufactured in a virtual environment. All these different digital solutions offer important research opportunities since the validation of the latest digital applications, tools, and devices is usually slower than the technological progress. In order to validate with scientific evidence of the digital workflow, researchers and experts in digital dentistry are invited to contribute to this Special Issue.
