3D Printing In Dentistry: A Paradigm Shift from Fiction to Reality

Author(s): Shriya Singi*, Akash Sibal and Aditya Patel


Three-dimensional printing (3D Printing) has been recognized as the pioneer in today’s digital dentistry. Due to the
requirement for customization and personalization of dental products, 3D printing technologies are widely recognised to
enhance dentistry. This review is expected to look into why 3D printing is significant in dentistry, as well as why dentistry
drives research in 3D printing applications. Traditional manufacturing has struggled to make complicated and precise
anatomic models, which 3D printers can now do with ease. The focus of this article is to present a current review of the
various printing techniques, including stereo lithography, selective laser sintering, photopolymer jetting, and powder binder
printers and fused deposition modelling. Furthermore, the implementation of this technology in various fields of dentistry is
given special attention. Dental technology has enhanced diagnostic accuracy, made treatment delivery easier, and
minimized chair time, allowing practitioners to provide more effective treatment. The dentist can use 3D printing to
visualise, record, and create hard and soft tissue models with extreme precision. In a variety of therapy approaches, 3D
printing can be beneficial. It uses the fast developing 3D printing technique to cover research and innovation, therapeutic
methods, teaching, and training. It's a potential clinical tool because it visualises therapy outcomes and offers immense
potential to enhance oral health care. Educational programmes that use 3D-printed models encourage students and
trainees to learn dentistry skills. This study discusses the several 3D printing technologies and its applications in dentistry
