Special Issue "Surface Modifications and Coatings for Bioactive Implants"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 September 2020.
The success of implants is directly related to the bone implant interlock. Surface modifications of implants and their components are still challenging. Among the roughening techniques used to attain proper bone implant interfaces, it is convenient to remember the apposition of sintering particles, nanotechnology, and laser technology. In recent studies, bioengineering technologies and new coatings are also being studied.
Even though titanium and titanium alloys are still the material of choice for implants, they are not without their disadvantages. To overcome the associated problems, the use of ceramic materials such as zirconia and modifying the surface have been introduced in the dental filed. There are also new approaches in materials and methods to restoring these novel implants.
The proposed Special Issue will address the abovementioned advanced technologies, new implant materials, and related prosthetic materials based on both scientific experiments and authors’ direct experience.
It is my great pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript for this Special Issue. Full papers, communications, and reviews 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.
