Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

It is a great pleasure to invite all authors to submit manuscripts to one of the contemporary subjects in dentistry: “Innovations in Endodontic Materials: From the Lab to the Dental Clinic”.

Innovative biomaterials with stimulating functional properties are increasingly being used for oral applications. Our understanding of this emergent knowledge has expanded greatly in the last few years, especially in terms of the future clinical translation of scientific attainments, driven by new insights in developmental biology, cell and molecular biology of native tissues and oral tissues, and new biomaterials with biological activities.

Contemporaneous endodontics strongly involves the development and clinical application of biomaterials. The evolution of these biomaterials within dentistry has been notable, as new materials, new applications, and new techniques are progressively being introduced and materials are constantly developing.

This Special Issue aims to highlight the current knowledge in contemporary basic and clinical research on applications of biomaterials in endodontics fields.

We welcome papers on subjects including, but not limited to, the following: molecular interactions; biomaterial developments and applications in endodontics; the characterization and development of biomaterials; new biomaterial applications or modifications, such as hydraulic cement and pulp regeneration scaffolds; tissue-engineering scaffolds; regenerative endodontic procedures; apexification; vital pulp therapy; root-end filling; adhesion and new adhesion materials; and biocompatibility.

Advanced original research articles, state-of-the-art reviews, and articles containing translational research are highly encouraged.

We are looking forward to receiving your submissions.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
