The Digital Revolution’s Impact on Prosthodontics

Virtually all of our current clinical and technical prosthodontic procedures can be supported or realized by new digital technologies. As the majority of clinicians and technologists move to digital processes and procedures, communication among the dental team (dentist, dental technician, dental hygienist, and patient) and the prosthodontic procedures themselves will drastically change, becoming faster and more efficient.1 More people will then be able to request treatment, more patient-adequate solutions and patient-centered care will be available, and more personalized dentistry will happen.2 These predictions may sound exaggerated, but technical developments at the sharp end suggest that we are already there. This editorial addresses some challenges at the levels of clinical and personal patient management, dental technology, and education.
