Bone regeneration is nowadays bounded to the use of biomaterials that are able to promote tissue regeneration and to degrade after their function has been performed. These biomaterials need to be designed to attract a sufficient number of cells to the site of defect, to regulate the inflammatory response, to induce blood vessel formation, and to finally allow bone cell maturation. It is an orchestrated process that involves a series of events, which are initiated by cell–material interactions followed by cell–molecule interactions that will ultimately dictate the success of the implanted biomaterial. Once implanted, cells need to adapt to the surface of the biomaterial to stimulate the different biological processes, which are tuned by the intrinsic properties of the substrate. After the initial cell–material interaction, cells undergo a series of events in which their phenotype changes into bone tissue lineages. Furthermore, cells are continuously provided with signaling molecules that guide the final tissue regeneration.
This Special Issue focuses on the development of bone regenerative strategies based on the design of materials that provide a bioactive surface. Furthermore, the Special Issue also includes coatings that may tune the properties of the biomaterial and provide, thus, signaling molecules that are required to stimulate bone tissue regeneration.
In particular, the topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Nano- and mesoporous based materials;
- Surface functionalization strategies;
- Molecule and/or ion releasing coatings;
- Surface modification techniques, including etching or plasma treatment, among others;
- Bioactive ceramic coatings on polymers and substrates.

Abstract: Biodentine is a bioactive dentin coating widely used for dental restoration; however, its adhesion to the substrate could limit its clinical exit. The aim of this study was to evaluate the shear bond strength (SBS) between Biodentine® and a composite resin, using different types of adhesive systems. A hundred and twenty acrylic blocks with a central hole were prepared. Those were fully filled with Biodentine®. Blocks were divided in two time groups: 12 minutes (n=60) and 24 hours (n=60), and each group was subdivided in four groups according to the adhesive: 3-steps etch- and-rinse (n=15) (Optibond FL), 2- steps etch-and-rinse (n=15) (Solobond M), and a universal adhesive subdivided in two groups, 2-steps etch-and-rinse (n=15) and 1-step self-etch adhesive system (n=15) (Scotchbond Universal). After the application of adhesive, composite was applied and stored at 100% humidity, at 37oC, for 24 hours, before SBS test. Data were analyzed with one-way ANOVA, Fisher post-hoc test, and Kolmogorov-Smirnov test. Twelve minutes group showed statistically significant differences (p=0.009), with the highest values of adhesion for Optibond FL. No statistically significant differences were observed at 24 hours group (p=0.813) and between adhesive systems (p=0.071) regardless of adhesion time. The higher adhesion values were found at 24 hours. It is essential to consider the longest setting time for Biodentine®. 3-steps etch and rinse adhesive has the highest adhesion values.
