Value of the global dental practice management software market in 2016
Once the exclusive domain of early adopters, in-office fabrication of indirect restorations and supplementary appliances has become increasingly common in recent years as milling and 3D printing technology have become more robust, easier to use, and more affordable. Permanent restorations ranging from single copings to implant abutments and bars can be milled in the office, and 3D printers can be used for models, temporaries, surgical guides, night guards, and more. The technology is evolving rapidly, and the possibility of 3D printed permanent restorations may not be a matter of "if" but rather "when."
