Three-dimensional (3D) printing is a fast evolving technology and is being increasingly used in dentistry. Compared to the older and traditional (lost-wax technique) methods, 3D printing has an upper hand. A wider variety of raw materials can be utilized with 3D printing. Even though this technology has been known for over 30 years, but its assimilation into practice was slow as it relied on the availability of the right materials, which give accurate prints and have optimal biocompatibity. 3D printing technology can use Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) data for fabrication of guides used in surgical and non-surgical endodontics. This article assesses applications of 3D printing in endodontics.
