Special Issue "Dental Materials: Latest Advances and Prospects"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 23 December 2021.
Interests: restorative dentistry; adhesive dentistry; implant dentistry; periodontology
Almost all fields of dentistry are closely related to newly developed materials, and all clinical improvements often follow or, in any case, always go hand in hand with the creation and the development of innovative and higher performing materials, instruments, and equipment. Thanks to contemporary dental materials application, the effectiveness of clinical dentistry has gained remarkable advances.
In recent years, thanks to digital technology and to the frenetic development of the dental industry, new materials have been developed and proposed in each field of dentistry: prosthesis, restorative dentistry, endodontics, implantology, and orthodontics. Unfortunately, as often happens, this productive challenge is not always accompanied by valid scientific research, and consequently the clinician finds at his disposal materials that are not necessarily better than the previous ones. Further studies are needed to gain relevant evidence for all recently introduced dental materials.
This Special Issue calls for high-quality research articles, clinical studies, review articles, and case reports focused on the latest advances and prospects of dental materials concerning all fields of dentistry.
