Recently it has become a subject of great interest in virtual surgical planning. The technology has a particular resonance with dentistry. It has become of great importance with advancement in 3D imaging and modelling technologies such as CBCT, intraoral scanning and CAD CAM in dentistry. Uses of 3D printing include the production of drill guides for dental implants, the production of physical models for prosthodontics, orthodontics and surgery, the manufacture of dental, craniomaxillofacial and orthopedic implants and the fabrication of copings and frameworks for implant and dental restorations.
