Manufacturing Technologies İn Digital Workflow

The digital age is developing very fast today and we feel it in every aspect of our lives. Also this digital process develops in recent years in the field of dentistry and now it is a part of our routine clinical practice.
Digital technology, especially in the process of restorative and prosthetic treatment; intraoral scans and digital impressions, restoration design on the obtained digital data and the production of this design data in various ways, achieve is to have a digital process. The final stage of this digital workflow is manufacturing. And these manufacturing steps welcome us with an innovation every day. Milling from prefabricated blocks is still the majority of the manufacturing phase, but we have discussed many different possibilities in production technologies due to developing 3D printers and layered manufacturing methods. The fact that the digital revolution has coming with new technologies and in the manufacturing stage has led to the fact that in the near future we will have to move away from the conventional production methodologies in our minds. Be prepared for change, because they will be routinely in our lives in the very near future.
