Special Issue "Soft Tissue Integration and Osseointegration around Dental Implants"
A special issue of Dentistry Journal (ISSN 2304-6767).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (20 February 2021).
Interests: periodontal tissue regeneration; bone grafting and dental implants; tissue engineering; craniofacial biology; neuroectodermal-derived cells
We live in exciting times for dental implant research. A paradigm shift is occurring in the implant research domain, effectively bringing into focus soft tissue integration around dental implants and placing this subject on equal footing to osseointegration. Over the years, osseointegration has been and continues to be the focus of countless studies, both in terms of novel surface technologies but also as the defining parameter of dental implant success. Recent opinion suggests the peri-implant soft tissue is an equally important criterion of health and long-term success and is therefore worthy of more concerted research approaches for novel surfaces, abutment connection design, and clinical treatment/workflow investigations.
We would like to invite you to submit your in vitro, in vivo, and clinical research studies, letters, critical/narrative reviews, and reviews. If you are interested in evidence-based dentistry and would like to contribute to this topic, please refer to the keywords below and submit to this Special Issue.

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).
