Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

It is my pleasure to welcome you as a Guest Editor to this Special Edition with the exciting topic "3D Printing in Dentistry and Cranio-Maxillo-Facial Surgery". Additive manufacturing (AM) or "3D printing" has experienced an enormous boom in recent years, especially in dentistry and cranio-maxillofacial surgery as well as other known disciplines for technological innovations in medicine. Even though this technology has already been around for more than 35 years old, today, the real innovation is not necessarily technical developments, but the replacement of traditional manufacturing and treatment methods combined with the firm integration of CAD/CAM, creating a full digital workflow in everyday practice.

The possibilities offered by CAD/CAM procedures, and especially 3D printing, allow us to respond to the individual needs of our patients and open up new treatment options—not least when we think of bioprinting in regenerative medicine, which enables us to fabricate different human tissues into three-dimensional living "spare parts" for our patients.

In this Special Issue, we focus on digital procedures in dentistry and cranio-maxillofacial surgery with a spotlight on "3D printing"—and I kindly invite you all to submit a paper on this fascinating topic.

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 papers will be 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. Dentistry Journal is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 1400 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.
