Abstract


The field of dentistry is constantly evolving to best suit the patient needs and integrate dentistry with technology. Latest
technological innovations like three dimensional (3D) printing and cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) have
made treatment planning and its execution a whole lot easier and has thus been gaining much popularity. The process of
3D printing entails the creation of an object from the raw material, layer by layer. 3D printing has diverse applicability in
the various specialities of dentistry such as endodontics, orthodontics, periodontology, maxillofacial surgery,
prosthodontics and restorative dentistry. This article briefly describes 3D printing technology and its applications in
periodontology.
