In dentistry, the term adhesion is often used to define the process that establishes the micromechanical union between the materials and dental substrates. A large number of clinical dental procedures are intermediated by adhesive systems. The practioner must be able, not only to use materials available on the market, but also understand the mechanism of action of each of them, so that this knowledge is able to guide the choice of the adhesive system for each particular clinical case.
Effective and lasting adhesive interfaces are fully related to the interruption of the repetitive restorative cycle, in which restorations are periodically replaced by more complex and larger ones. Thus, the choice of the adhesive system must be based in deep knowledge of the material, as well as the characteristics of the dental tissues and their interaction with adhesive systems.
This Special Issue is interested in all aspects of adhesive systems, understanding their mechanisms of action and their interactions with the dental substrate. In addition, strategies to reduce degradation of the adhesive interface are very welcome with the objective of increasing the durability of adhesive interfaces.Dr. Michelle Alexandra Chinelatti
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 quarterly journal published by MDPI.
