Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

It is a great pleasure for me to be Guest Editor for this Special Issue entitled: "New Developments in Endodontics Treatments". Endodontic treatments, in each of their phases, from year-to-year show novelties and the introduction of new materials and new techniques. In light of these recent developments, I expect to receive update articles on Radiographic and Radiation-free Diagnosis, NiTi Rotary Instruments, Irrigants and Root Canal Obturation Materials. The diagnosis of the complex 3D anatomy of the canal system has been deeply studied in recent years in vivo and in vitro with 3D acquisition radiographic systems, which have allowed us to establish interesting results from many aspects.
With increasing attention to the dose of ionizing radiation absorbed by the patient, in the light of the various tests that are repeated every year, more and more attention has been paid to the study of radiation-free imaging examinations. To achieve an adequate level of canal shaping, to allow adequate disinfection and complete obturation of the root canal, NiTi instruments are constantly updated, with the introduction of new alloys and new rotating systems. More and more weight is given to irrigation to the detriment of root canal shaping, with an evident saving of dentin and improvement of the long-term dental prognosis.
I expect to receive articles evaluating different types of irrigants with different activation protocols. In recent years, a great revolution and an important paradigm shift has been represented by the introduction of bioceramic cements, with respect to which scientific research is extremely careful. In light of this information, I expect to receive Original Research papers, Case Reports and Reviews from clinicians or researchers are accepted, with the aim of updating the knowledge of new materials and new techniques in Endodontics.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Clinics and Practice 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 1000 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.
