Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Mechanical and Biological Properties of Advanced Dental Materials have been widely investigated and improved, to meet the main clinical requirements. Typically, dental materials have wide use in several fields of dental sciences, such as conservative dentistry, endodontics, orthodontics, surgery, and periodontics. In recent years, novel and bioactive materials have been used as scaffolds in reconstructive oral surgery, or as filling materials in order to repair/restore damaged tooth tissues. The scientific community is fully committed to developing and characterizing novel dental materials, to better understand their behavior and their potential applications in clinical and surgical cases.

Today, the dental material market includes resin composite, polymers, glass ionomers, ceramics, titanium, zirconia, and silicate cement. Novel biocompatible and bioactive materials are daily reported in the scientific literature, with a specific commitment towards pulp repairing/regeneration, dental/oral tissue engineering, and bone repairing. Additive technologies have produced strong conditions to create novel customized and personalized biomaterials, thus, combining excellent mechanical and biological properties in the same product.

Better knowledge of biological, chemical, physical, and mechanical proprieties of dental materials requires a continuous sharing of the latest research and discoveries.

The aim of this Special Issue is to welcome the most promising and innovative results on biomaterials used in dental applications.

Original research articles, well-designed review articles, and significant preliminary communication are invited and warmly 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.
