Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In the rapidly evolving landscape of dental medicine, the integration of digital technologies into implant dentistry represents a transformative leap forward. This Special Issue aims to explore the comprehensive spectrum of digital workflows in implant dentistry, encompassing planning, insertion, restoration, and long-term monitoring. Our focus is on showcasing cutting-edge advancements that enhance predictability, personalization, and patient acceptance while addressing the challenges and opportunities presented by digitalization. We invite contributions that delve into the utilization of digital imaging, computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) systems, digital impressions, and virtual reality simulations. Special emphasis will be placed on the role of artificial intelligence in optimizing treatment outcomes, streamlining procedures, and facilitating personalized treatment plans that cater to individual patient needs and budgets. Submissions exploring the incorporation of digital workflows in implant surgery and prosthetics, with comparisons to hybrid and traditional methods while analyzing the results, are encouraged. Through this Special Issue, we aim to illuminate the ways in which digital workflows can not only improve the efficiency and effectiveness of implant dentistry but also significantly enhance patient experience and satisfaction. Contributions may include original research, reviews, case studies, and perspectives that highlight innovation, address technical challenges, and propose future directions for digital workflows in implant dentistry.
