Since their introduction by Prof. Branemark in the 1960s, dental implants have become a reliable treatment option for the replacement of missing teeth in both partial and complete edentulous patients. Survival and success rates of implant-supported protheses depend on several factors, including physical and chemical properties of implant materials, such as microstructure, its surface composition and characteristics, as well as design factors. In recent years, the digital revolution has been changing the world, and dentistry is no exception. The introduction of new aesthetic materials, together with a whole range of digital devices (intraoral, extraoral, face scanners and cone beam computed tomography scans), processing software, and powerful manufacturing and prototyping tools (milling machines and 3D printers) are radically transforming the dental profession. In this vision, modern digital dentistry is changing workflows and, consequently, operating procedures. Although there is no doubt about their accuracy, there is still no evidence that new materials and digital procedures are superior to conventional workflows. The aim of this Special Issue is to provide strong evidence for modern patient-centered care.
