Special Issue "New Ways to Disinfect and Fill Dental Hard Tissues"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (29 February 2020).
We live in exciting times. New concepts deriving from basic science are about to enter the dental clinics. However, whether these new approaches will improve our treatment outcomes is debatable Moreover, currently obtaining market certificates for medical devices is a challenging situation, which may create legal impasses for novel concepts. It may thus be wise to also explore alternative ways to use existing materials, or challenge current clinical concepts with new approaches within the legal framework. Scientists, clinicians, and industry representatives need to get together to identify what is not only new but actually useful.
The main goal of the dentist remains to prevent micro-organisms from establishing biofilms in the wrong niches. If that has already happened, treatments aim to alter or remove these microbial communities, thus, arresting or healing the concurrent hard and soft tissue lesions. This Special Issue will gather studies, thoughts, and knowledge by experts in the field on new ways to disinfect and/or fill dental hard tissues. Contributions may be original scientific studies as well as critical narrative or systematic reviews.
