Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The latest updates in bone regeneration and oral implant procedures are creating a new generation of active biomaterials and dental implant devices for the treatment of edentulous bone ridges and long-term fixed oral rehabilitation. Novel strategies such as biomaterials in association with graphene, advanced 3D tissue-engineered substitutes, dental materials, titanium surface treatments, and innovative macro-morphologies have been developed to obtain a better implant primary stability and to increase the new bone formation and healthy and functional peri-implant tissues.

This Special Issue " Biomechanical Behaviour and Recent Advances in Biomaterials Osseointegration and Oral Implantology" will involve the recent updates in maxillofacial research, in vivo and in vitro studies, biomechanical simulation of artificial bone of innovative dental implant geometries, surface treatment, and bone bio-complexes applied to bone regeneration and implant-supported rehabilitations.

In particular, recent research topics, original research papers, in vivo and in vitro studies, and mechanical simulation reports on artificial bone will be considered this Issue.

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. International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2300 CHF (Swiss Francs).

Acellular dermal matrix grafts (ADMG) have been used as soft tissue graft substitutes for autografts in periodontal plastic surgical procedures. They have benefits like avoiding a second surgical site and patient morbidity that have been associated with autografts, but there is limited evidence available on their tissue response and wound healing process. This histomorphometric animal model study was carried out in mini pigs and it aimed to compare the two types of ADMG materials of porcine derivative with a control group through observation of parameters like epithelial and Keratinized layer thickness, angiogenesis, cellularity, matrix resorption, and inflammatory infiltrate. The surgical technique involved punctures on the edentulous areas stripping the epithelial tissue and exposing the underlying connective tissue, placement of the ADMGs in the appropriate control and test sites. Following this, gingival biopsies were procured at three different time intervals of 15, 45, and 90 days. There were significant differences in epithelial and Keratinized layer thickness among the three groups. This study concluded that there was no clear consensus on which graft material was superior but it gave an insight into the tissue response and wound healing process associated with the graft materials.
