The emergence of digital technologies is unavoidable in the contemporary dental practice. The application spectrum of such digital technologies covers all dental disciplines and varies between data acquisition, treatment planning, and CAD/CAM techniques. In reconstructive dentistry, the ultimate goal of these technologies is to improve the quality and capabilities in examination, diagnosis, and treatment of the dental patient. This presentation will provide an overview of the digital workflow in reconstructive dentistry, discuss its possibilities and advantages, and provide insights about future developments. At the end, participants will be familiar with the digital workflow in reconstructive dentistry, understand the current possibilities and limitations of technologies implemented in the digital workflow, and know about upcoming future developments that will be introduced to the digital workflow.
