Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Different types of dental biomaterials have been introduced into the market to meet the expectations of both dentists and patients. The aim of basic and developmental research is to continuously improve their clinical properties (such as life span), biocompatibility, antimicrobial properties, mechanical properties, tribological characteristics, and toxicity. Many studies explore the development of new materials, while others focus on the investigation of commercially available products in the context of their role in the oral environment or the use of modern technologies used for processing. Considering that dental biomaterial products should be compatible with biological systems, knowledge of biomechanical engineering also plays an extremely important role in their design. Interdisciplinary research which combines the principles of materials science and mechanical engineering with medical sciences must be carried out to improve our understanding. For this purpose, we invite you to submit a manuscript for this Special Issue. Original research articles and reviews related to any of the topics mentioned above are welcome.

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. Materials 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). 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.
