Special Issue "Applied Simulation and Experiment Research in Dentistry"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 10 July 2021.
Interests: Biomaterials and manufacturing technology; efficacy of dental solutions; load distribution in dentures; reinforcement; dental composites; implant and abutment screw failure; friction forces; lubrication and wear of materials; teeth and mucous membrane; soft tissue pressure pain threshold; oral appliances; hard and soft tissue behavior; mandible and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) biomechanics; bruxism and occlusion dysfunction treatment; TMJ replacement; maxillofacial surgery virtual planning; bone fixation and prosthesis design; simulation in orthognathic surgery; bone and teeth fracture and sport mouthguards.
• The behavior of soft mucous membrane, periodontal ligaments, and temporomandibular joint discs.
• Mandible and maxillae biomechanics in the correct conditions and during dysfunctions, deformities and defect replacement.
• Friction and wear of appliances and tissues.
• Bone and teeth fracture analysis and treatment.
• Optical investigations in esthetics evaluation.
Simulation and experimental research in dentistry assess clinical solutions in unequivocal and comparable conditions.
In dentistry we ask the following questions:
- Is it safe?
- Is it better than others?
- Is it worth trying out?
Comparable conditions can be created in a computer simulation (finite element analysis – FEA), a physical in vitro experiment, but also in the oral cavity. Areas of interest for this Special Issue include the following:
- The influence of given manufacturing technologies, installation techniques, and exploitation in bulk and surface properties of materials and efficacy of dental solutions.
- Mechanical and thermal load distribution in dentures, implants, fillings, and orthodontic appliances, as well as the answer of bone tissue, dentine, and enamel.
- The behavior of soft mucous membrane, periodontal ligaments, and temporomandibular joint discs.
- Mandible and maxillae biomechanics in the correct conditions and during dysfunctions, deformities and defect replacement.
- Friction and wear of appliances and tissues.
- Bone and teeth fracture analysis and treatment.
- Optical investigations in esthetics evaluation.

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.
