The development of new biocompatible materials and/or existing material composition and progressing techniques is expected to broaden the diversity of applications of biomaterials in the dentistry field in the coming years. The progress in materials research clearly requires an improved understanding in multiple disciplines, as well as the development of new design methodologies in order to obtain better properties in biologic performance and better biocompatibility. The objectives of all these biomaterials and technologies are not only to replace missing or damaged tooth tissues but now also to promote tissue regeneration and protect healthy tooth tissue.
Comprehension of recent advances in biomaterials of dentistry would lead to appropriate applications of these biomaterials in clinical cases and successful strategies to improve dental treatment outcomes to better serve patients. It is important to choose the most appropriate material for the regeneration of tooth structures via biomimetic processes. In other words, choosing the appropriate dental materials and their successful clinical use directly affect treatment outcome and long-term results.
Biomaterials and technologies are not only replacing missing or damaged tissues but also promoting tissue regeneration. In this Special Issue, research related to application techniques in dentistry will be analyzed and updated.
Specific areas of current research activity are discussed and some of the required technical advances highlighted.
We especially welcome interventional studies aiming at improving the knowledge of the imaging functional biomaterials and technologies in dentistry. Review studies including those that use conceptual frameworks on any of the aforementioned topics will also be welcomed.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
