Digital Dentistry: New Materials and Techniques

Description

The world of dentistry is experiencing the effects of the digital revolution: computers and digital devices are making what were previously manual tasks easier, faster, cheaper, and more predictable.

Digital dentistry refers to any dental technology or device that incorporates digital or computer-controlled components. Digital technologies are rapidly advancing in dentistry: new materials (zirconia, lithium disilicate, and others) and new devices such as intra-/extraoral/face scanners and cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) scanners have been introduced; computer aided design/computer aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) softwares and innovative fabrication procedures such as 3D printing and layered manufacturing are changing the way we treat our patients.

In the coming months and years there will be a further, huge flood of new improvements and newly introduced materials and devices. However, the digital technologies have already begun to dramatically change the world of dentistry, changing patients’ expectations towards dental treatments. Accordingly, dental professionals need to change the way they think, communicate, and work to adapt to a new challenging scenario that is increasingly driven by the abstract world of digital bits: waiting to adopt or integrate these new technologies would leave them decades behind.

We solicit high quality original research articles, clinical studies, and review articles focused on the topic of digital dentistry.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Intraoral, laboratory, and face scanners
  • Cone beam computed tomography
  • New imaging techniques in dentomaxillofacial radiology
  • CAD/CAM softwares in digital dentistry
  • Digital prosthodontics
  • New materials (zirconia, lithium disilicate, and others) in digital dentistry
  • Milling and rapid prototyping in dentistry
  • Guided implant surgery
  • Guided bone regeneration
  • Additive manufacturing implants
  • “Custom-made” implants
  • Lasers
  • Digital orthodontics
