Digital technologies have been rapidly introduced in dental practices, with many of them based around the capture of images. Digital imaging technologies offer the ability to record, archive, and remotely assess dental conditions and utilize a skill mix in the delivery of field work. Images may be white light or use alternative light sources to help the automation of the detection and quantification of dental lesions. In clinical trials, the use of technologies and basic science innovations enable the increased independence of examiners, multiple examiner scoring, and an archive and audit of activity for regulators and others. The use of more sophisticated statistical techniques using continuous, rather than the more common ordinal, data reduces the subject numbers and duration of such trials. Image archives can also be revisited for secondary outcome assessment with ease, ensuring that the maximum data yield can be achieved from a single study.
Efforts have been made over the last few decades to produce reliable and predictable methods to stimulate tissue regeneration. Tissue engineering/regenerative medicine provides new avenues to enhance tissue regeneration by introducing bioactive models or constructing patient-specific substitutes. This Special Issue will be focused on updating the current knowledge on therapies and biomaterials used in dentistry, with emphasis on the most recent findings and future directions.
We especially welcome interventional and observational studies aimed at improving the knowledge of the effects of new technologies in clinical and basic research trials. Review studies, including those that use conceptual frameworks, for any of the aforementioned topics will also be welcomed.

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.
