Oral implantology, periodontology, oral surgery, prosthesis, and materials science are strongly interconnected research fields. The study of medical devices requires knowledge of synthetic and biological materials which, of course, are characterized by significantly different physical, chemical and mechanical properties. The devices are made by selecting materials that have appropriate chemical, mechanical, thermal, electrical, optical characteristics, etc.; they are naturally related to the chemical nature of the material and its structure. It is common practice to identify the properties of materials with the results of tests carried out in order to measure these properties.The Special Issue “Biomaterials, Nanomaterials and microbiota biofilm control in Dentistry” invites worldwide investigators as well as clinicians who are confident in applied biosciences research to submit their most interesting overviews, reviews, and original articles that may provide novel insights regarding multidisciplinary research in the field of biomedicine and biological engineering applications.We invite authors to submit original research articles about biomaterials used in fields of oral implantology, periodontology, oral surgery, prosthesis, and materials science. Systematic reviews and meta-analyses are also welcome if they provide new sound scientific evidence in these fields.Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:New biomaterials and/or grafting techniques for bone regeneration;· New biomaterials and/or techniques for peri-implant soft tissue management;· New dental implant macro and microdesigns for the improvement of osseointegration;· New technologies to avoid implant corrosion or degradation;· New concepts on microbiota biofilm control around to teeth or dental implants.We hope that new ideas will promote a fast development of these exciting topics, and we invite you to submit to this Special Issue the best of your research activities.

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 2000 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.
