By gradually adding material layer by layer, 3D printing, sometimes referred to as additive manufacturing, is the method of creating a solid three-dimensional object from a computer-aided design (CAD) model. The development of personalized medical devices and implants, as well as the creation of models for pre-operative planning, medical education, training, simulation, and research, are all made possible by the widespread use of 3D printing in research and clinical settings, particularly in the healthcare industry. Building high-quality, precise, and functional patient-specific models using 3D printing is related to and dependent upon medical imaging techniques because these imaging techniques are in charge of gathering the necessary data. An overview of 3D printing in dentistry is included in this article.
