The digital revolution is changing how people think, communicate, and work. Digital transformation has facilitated the application of novel approaches, not only for dental treatment but also for diagnosis and evaluation. Even in dentistry, digital devices are making previously manual tasks easier, faster, cheaper, and more predictable. Digital Dentistry is aimed at favoring scientific progress and the applicative development of rehabilitation treatment in dentistry and, more generally, in the field of oro-maxillofacial treatment with the use of digital technologies. It was created to set and improve the evidence base of these new procedures and to provide a support network for all dental health professionals as they navigate through the morass of digital technologies, with the ultimate goal of benefiting patients.
The aim of this Special Issue is to provide insight into recent advances in the field of digital dentistry. Potential topics in this Special Issue include but are not limited to in vitro and clinical research using a variety of digital equipment, such as the intraoral, face, and cone-beam computed tomography scanners; computer-aided design software; milling machines; and 3D printers. Studies incorporating a new approach or providing novel information are of higher priority. Innovative digital workflows and systematic and narrative reviews of digital technologies in the field of dentistry are also welcome.
It is our pleasure to invite you to contribute to this Special Issue.
