Special Issue "Clinical Research of Endodontic Dentistry"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2020.
Interests: development of new bioceramic materials for bone regeneration; bacteria contamination of root canal; histology of periapical bone; scanning electron microscopy and EDX of dentin; mechanical properties of endodontic instruments; ultrasounds in endodontics; systemic disease and endodontology
It is a pleasure to invite you to contribute to this Special Issue on Clinical Research of Endodontic Dentistry. Over the last years, a great number of innovative instruments and biomaterials have been introduced for application in endodontic clinical practice. New techniques for root canal shaping, improved rotary and reciprocating NiTi instruments and novel biomaterials for root canals fillings have been developed as demonstrated by several dedicated research investigations. These new techniques may result in significant changes in endodontic clinical practice.
This Special Issue will cover several classes of new biomaterials developed for endodontic application: bioceramic materials, polymeric materials, biocomposites, carbon post, fiber-glass, nano-apatites, ceramic and zirconia, silicates, graphene, etc. and their impact on clinical results. All these novel and innovative biomaterials may change endodontic practice and improve clinical results. Pulp capping, root reimplantation, specification, and epigenesis can be positively affected by new materials for tissue regeneration. Pulpal stem cells and mesenchymal cells represent a promising research area with future clinical applications in the endodontic area.
This Special Issue will publish papers on how to manage endodontic practices in patients affected by systemic disease and explore whether clinical research can guide endodontic to new positive results. Special attention is dedicated to the relationship between endodontic and cardiovascular, neurological, rheumatological diseases, and their related clinical problems. For example, determining whether arteriosclerosis affected or induced by endodontic disease.
Contributions addressing the role of bacteria and viruses in endodontic disease and how they can influence the clinical practice are also of particular interest. Recent and dramatic improvements in microbiology, genetic, and proteomic fields have made it possible to observe endodontic practice with different angulation. Methods of removing bacteria and other pathogens are other future challenges.

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. Journal of Clinical Medicine 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 2200 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.
