Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Due to the recent introduction of the “minimal-invasive dentistry” concept, the development of new materials and technologies in restorative dentistry and endodontics is becoming more and more important. The aim of this Special Issue is to summarize and to focus the future of endodontic and post-endodontic restoration with a special attention to new opportunities offered by digital technologies. Materials properties analysis is an important step for computer-assisted-design/computer-assisted-manufacturing (CAD/CAM) and fabrication procedures like milling and 3D printing. Accuracy in post-endodontic procedures can be obtained only through the knowledge of the type and limitations of materials, criteria of materials selection, preparation concepts, protocols of adhesion to tooth structure, and cementation procedures. In endodontics, the Special Issue will focus on the new Ni–Ti alloys in the manufacturing of shaping instruments, new irrigants in cleaning, and new materials in obturation, like bioceramic sealers derived from bioactive glass-based. At present, the properties of these sealers require investigations which shall provide evidence about their biocompatibility, sealing mechanism, sealing ability, and removability. It would be good to create a platform for all researchers and clinicians to share their experiences and studies in these fields. It is my pleasure to invite researchers and university groups to submit original, clinical, and review studies, on these subjects.

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.
