Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Dentistry in general, and especially oral implantology, have developed tremendously in recent decades. For many years, extensive research articles have been published about the importance and the influence of biomaterials used in dental medicine and dental implantology in order to increase the success rate of the treatments, but there are still many aspects that need to be clarified. For this reason, we are launching this Special Issue as a excellent opportunity to publish your valuable work on this topic, and to present your contribution in order to improve the clinical standards of quality through biomaterials research.
Biomaterials play a key role in dentistry and oral implantology. but we should not ignore the common side effects that they may induce both systemically and locally. Thus, extensive basic research in the field of biomaterials can generate great contributions to the further evolution of dentistry and implantology.

Some proposed topics for this Special Issue include (not a limited list):

  • The influence of biomaterials on periodontal disease;
  • Novel biomaterials used in implantology;
  • Composite resins and bacteria retention;
  • SEM microscopy evaluation of different biomaterials;
  • EDX analysis of biomaterials used in dentistry;
  • Toxicological effects of biomaterials used in oral environment.
