Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Oral and maxillo-facial deformities, trauma, and various diseases can lead to impaired function and facial aesthetics. Long-lasting and functional reconstructions of facial structures often require a multidisciplinary approach and, sometimes, various operations with a focus on both bone and soft tissue reconstruction. Virtual surgical planning and medical modeling assistance through collaborations among all specialties in the field of dentistry represent everyday practice in most offices. Additionally, the development of bone and soft tissue substitutes and alloplastic materials, as well as surgical techniques, are rendering the reconstruction toolkit more and more versatile. However, a proper understanding of the basics of tissue reconstruction, deformity surgery, and a combination of surgical, periodontal, and prosthodontic techniques is essential and should be based on scientific background knowledge.

We welcome submissions of papers addressing the topics listed above for this Special Issue, including in vitro and animal models, clinical studies, epidemiological surveys, clinical trials, reviews, and meta-analyses. The Special Issue will focus on novel technigues such as additive manufacturing. It will also feature reports on novel materials and novel imaging and modeling techniques.
