Recently, numerous types of biomaterials, such as natural and artificial polymers, ceramics, metals, dental implants, prosthodontics components, radiological devices surgical tools, and orthodontic devices have been developed for use in daily dental clinical practice.
I am honored to invite contributors and researchers to submit original research articles, as well as review manuscripts, to investigate and research topics dealing with engineering and functional biomaterial related to all dental disciplines, as well as periodontal surgery, prosthodontics, conservative and endodontic devices, or orthodontic tools. The discoveries regarding bioengineering function, material stress, safety and long-term predictability of dental applied devices, will be accepted for submission.
The topic is widely present in the recent international literature and, for this reason, this Special Issue is directed at dental researchers, as well as bioengineering researchers, in order to have a complete understanding of the state-of-the-art of dental biomaterials and their mechanical, chemical, and engineering features.

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. Journal of Functional Biomaterials is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 850 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.
