In order to be resolved key issues many new technological approaches were developed. Methods: Key publications in English from past two decades are surveyed. Results: The additive processes allow layered fabrication of complex objects. Technologies such as: Vat polymerization, Powder bed fusion, Material extrusion, Binder jetting, Material jetting can be used in dentistry for fabrication of custom implants, apnea appliances, occlusal splints, surgical guides, complete dentures, crowns, bridges, RPD frameworks, or their prototypes. Other types as Direct energy deposition and Sheet lamination are not directed to the medical or dental branches at present. Conclusion: The additive manufacturing is developing incredibly fast and today it is used in almost every stage of the production process in dentistry, often than ever.
