Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In the beginning, restorative dentistry was uncertain and short. Over time, the restorative dentist was able to predict, by watching the fate of her restorations, whether they were able to withstand long-term oral function. With time, different restorative dentists put their individual experiences to collective use. If certain treatment alternatives and modalities became more predictable, others modified their treatment approach and the probability of success of the entire dental community increased. Being part of a successful group of practitioners offered professional protection and contributed significantly to practice growth. With years, professional organizations arose and the need for predictability became even more complex. People joined these organizations to make their practice more predictable. Leaders of global organizations have focused on increasing predictability for their members. This gave rise to the vast number of professional journals we have today, and is the foundation of present-day evidence-based dentistry. The present Issue will focus on techniques, materials, technology, and multidisciplinary approaches that allow is to increase the predictability of restorative dentistry. Ultimately, long-term stable results are the main goal of restorative dentistry today. We hope that the present Issue will help to increase the longevity of dental restorations.

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.

The Influence of Resin Infiltration Pretreatment on Orthodontic Bonding to Demineralized Human Enamel

Prior research reveal that low-viscosity resin is able to significantly penetrate initial caries lesions, which leads to their stabilization. The objective of the present report is to assess the shear bond strength (SBS) of orthodontic brackets bonded with different adhesives to demineralized enamel treated with a low-viscosity resin infiltrant. It also aims to compare the achieved bond strengths to those achieved in relation to sound enamel (SE). A total of 48 newly extracted third molars were collected, distributed in four groups (n=12), covered with a nail varnish, with 4 x 4 mm of uncoated area, immersed in Buskes demineralizing solution (14 days, 37 °C) or remained untreated. Group I: SE + Transbond XT; Group II: demineralized enamel (DE) + ICON + Transbond XT; Group III: DE + ICON + Scotchbond Universal; Group IV: DE + ICON + Assure PLUS. SBS was quantified in megapascals (MPa) and statistically analyzed (ANOVA, p ≤ 0.05). The mode of failure was assessed microscopically (10 x magnification). The highest SBS detected was in Group IV, and the difference was statistically significant (F = 14.37; p = 0.000). Treatment with a resin infiltrant on DE does not impair the shear bond strength when compared to SE, although it does produce a significantly higher strength when combined with Assure PLUS.
