Special Issue "Predictable Restorative Dentistry"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2020.
Interests: fixed prosthodontics; implant dentistry; aesthetic dentistry
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.
