Periodontal applications of three dimensional(3D) printing included education models, scaffolds, socket preservation, and sinus and bone augmentation and guided implant placement. 3D scaffolds have been recently investigated in the field of dentistry and periodontics as a bone graft substitutes which could overcome the drawbacks of routinely employed grafting materials. In this review, we highlight different biomaterials suitable for 3D scaffold fabrication, with a focus on “3D-printed” ones as bone graft substitutes that might be convenient for various applications related to periodontal regeneration and implant therapy.
