Background and Aims: In recent years, the dentistry workflow has developed considerably. By the introduction of computers and their various applications, the effectiveness and efficiency of treatment has increased enormously. Considering engineering concepts in the workflow, it is necessary for participants to assess different steps and data transferring between various software and hardware devices. This research investigated the interaction between dentists, laboratories and production centers through the required steps for accomplishing treatment by different applications of software and digital hardware devices.
Materials and Methods: Review in this article was based on searching Google scholar database considering key words: digital dentistry, workflow, computer aided design and manufacturing, dental CAD/CAM. This search was limited to the English articles published after the year 2000.
Conclusion: It is necessary in dentistry to use digital technologies to improve the efficiency of treatments. Thus, the participants in this field must have appropriate knowledge to choose and apply these tools. Moreover, the participant should help providers of digital solutions for better development of software packages and related hardwares.a

Background and Aims: One of the important fields of dentistry is surgery for dental implants. In this field, dentistry has developed considerably in recent years amongst other fields of medicine from the perspective of digital device and software application. Surgical guides help dental surgeon for more precise, confident, easier and shorter surgery. Process of producing these tools are full digital and to somehow complex due to the application of many technical devices, software and protocols. To achieve efficiency, all participants in the workflow must be aware of all steps and data requirements for production of guides. This paper investigates the production process of surgical guide comprehensively, and also, encompass all the steps in process with details.
Materials and Methods: This review article was based on searching Google scholar and PupMed databases considering key words: Surgical Guide, Guided surgery, digital dentistry, dental CAD/CAM, Additive manufacturing. More than 90% of the references were in English language and published after year 2010.
Conclusion: Today dentistry uses many digital solutions for dairy workflow and most of these solutions are developed by engineers in various fields of knowledge. Thus, this information is essential for dentists, surgeon, clinician and laboratory technician, etc. for better collaboration and participation. Amongst, advances in surgery of dental implant have been highly significant and patients benefit from better treatment and less inconvenience. In addition, dentists do surgery more precise and easier because of considering all conditions before of surgery. Thus, it is substantial inform of all steps of production process.
