Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The "International Conference on Dentistry and Oral Health" (ICD 2018) is scheduled for September 20–22, 2018 in Rome, Italy, and will provide a dedicated platform for early career clinicians and researchers, clinicians from private and general dental practice, established academics and scientists from university and industry to meet, discuss and share the knowledge relevant to the field of dentistry and oral health. There will be a series of talks, poster presentations, workshops, discussions and networking events which will enable participants to engage in updating their understanding on relevant dental topics, as well as establishing new contacts for possible future collaboration.

The Organizer of the conference (dental-conferences.magnusgroup.org), together with MDPI, have agreed to produce a joint publication (Selected Papers from 2nd International Conference on Dentistry and Oral Health ICD 2018) based on submitted presentations at the conference.

Dr. David Gillam

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.

This systematic review appraises studies conducted with layered double hydroxides (LDHs) for fluoride release in dentistry. LDH has been used as antacids, water purification in removing excess fluoride in drinking water and drug delivery. It has great potential for controlled fluoride release in dentistry, e.g., varnishes, fissure sealants and muco-adhesive strips, etc. The Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) Statement was followed with two reviewers performing a literature search using four databases: PubMed, Web of Science, Science Direct and Ovid Medline with no date restrictions. Studies including any LDH for ion/drug release in dentistry were included, while assessing the application of LDH and the value of the methodology, e.g., ion release protocol and the LDH production process. Results: A total of 258 articles were identified and four met the inclusion criteria. Based on two in vitro studies and one clinical study, LDH was previously studied in dental materials, such as dental composites and buccal muco-adhesive strips for fluoride release, with the latter studied in a clinical environment. The fourth study analysed LDH powder alone (without being incorporated into dental materials). It demonstrated fluoride release and the uptake of volatile sulphur compounds (VSC), which may reduce halitosis (malodour). Conclusion: LDHs incorporated in dental materials have been previously evaluated for fluoride release and proven to be clinically safe. LDHs have the potential to sustain a controlled release of fluoride (or other cariostatic ions) in the oral environment to prevent caries. However, further analyses of LDH compositions, and clinical research investigating any other cariostatic effects, are required. Full article

Motivational Interviewing has been demonstrated to be effective for a wide range of health behaviors. It is an effective behavior change method, which can be utilized in the dental practice setting. It can be used as a brief intervention to increase motivation to improve patients’ oral hygiene behaviors as well as providing a framework for delivering diet, smoking cessation, oral health changes, and alcohol advice. It involves four processes: engaging, focusing, evoking, and planning, guiding, which supports the patient towards a positive behavior change. Motivational Interviewing is a collaborative, patient-centered approach evoking the patient’s own motivation to change, thereby enhancing the relationship between the clinician and patient and improving patient outcomes. This review will provide an overview on the topic for dental professionals as well as helpful suggestions for supporting a positive behavior change in their dental practices. Full article
