Special Issue in Materials: Orthodontic Materials and Adhesive Interfaces
Dentistry is one of the medical sciences most related to materials. The efficacy of treatments like bleaching, direct and indirect restorations, endodontics, as well as the application of mobile and fixed prostheses, dental implants, or orthodontic appliances is strictly determined by the properties of the used materials. Despite the fact that many of these treaments, although historical, still maintain validity, an increasing number of new proposals have been introduced in recent years. This development was favoured by the introduction of advanced techniques in dentistry, such as nanotechnologies or CAD/CAM.
However, clinicians should consider the specific properties of these new materials to make the best choice for their patients. In particular, biocompatibility is a key point because each material must be tolerated by the human organism. Furthermore, the discussion of the possible bacterial colonisation of their surface is equally important, considering its aetiopathogenetic role in decay, periodontitis, and peri-implantitis.
Finally, physical and chemical properties must also be taken into account to ensure high-resistant treatments, as well as the maintenance of the initial characteristics of the products, preventing alteration of their original validity.
The aim of this Special Issue is to present the latest developments in the field of dental materials. It is our pleasure to invite you to contribute to this Special Issue. Research articles, review articles, and communications are all 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 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. 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 2000 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.
