Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

It is our pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript to the Special Issue “Advanced Biomaterials, Coatings and Techniques: Applications in Medicine and Dentistry”.

The field of biomaterials is a very extensive one, encompassing both the materials themselves and their manufacturing methods, which are constantly developing.

The use of biomaterials for medical and oral applications is associated with specific issues concerning their biocompatibility, bio-integration, antimicrobial properties, corrosion resistance and long-term performance, as a consequence of their close contact with human tissues. In the field of regenerative medicine, biomaterials are of great importance when used as scaffolds to promote cell growth and differentiation, resulting in the healing of tissue lesions.

Coatings play an important role in achieving the most crucial properties of biomaterials through surface modification, making them suitable for medical and oral applications.

The aim of this Special Issue is to provide an updated outlook on the applications of biomaterials and coatings in medicine and dentistry, as well as presenting innovative manufacturing technologies. It represents a good opportunity for researchers and scholars worldwide to disseminate different aspects of their work and reporting the results related to this topic. Research articles, reviews, and communications are equally invited for this Special Issue.

Instability of the dentine-resin interface is owed to the partial/incomplete penetration of the resin adhesives in the collagen fibrils. However, interfacial hydrolysis of the resin-matrix hybrid layer complex activates the collagenolytic and esterase enzymes that cause the degradation of the hybrid layer. Adequate hybridization is often prevented due to the water trapped between the interfibrillar spaces of the collagen network. Cyclic fatigue rupture and denaturation of the exposed collagen fibrils have been observed on repeated application of masticatory forces. To prevent interfacial microstructure, various approaches have been explored. Techniques that stabilize the resin–dentine bond have utilized endogenous proteases inhibitors, cross linking agents’ incorporation in the exposed collagen fibrils, an adhesive system free of water, and methods to increase the monomer penetration into the adhesives interface. Therefore, it is important to discover and analyze the causes of interfacial degradation and discover methods to stabilize the hybrid layer to execute new technique and materials. To achieve a predictable and durable adhesive resin, restoration is a solution to the many clinical problems arising due to microleakage, loss of integrity of the restoration, secondary caries, and postoperative sensitivity. To enhance the longevity of the resin-dentine bond strength, several experimental strategies have been carried out to improve the resistance to enzymatic degradation by inhibiting intrinsic collagenolytic activity. In addition, biomimetic remineralization research has advanced considerably to contemporary approaches of both intrafibrillar and extrafibrillar remineralization of dental hard tissues. Thus, in the presence of biomimetic analog complete remineralization of collagen, fibers are identified. Full article
