Dear Colleagues, Friends, Scientists,
Maxillofacial surgery is a rapidly developing domain. Traumatology and orthognathic surgery are the “parents” of this field, and thus, osteosynthesis is still the main tool in our hands. Dozens of dedicated plates for mandible condyle fixation, hundreds of plates of 1.5, 2.0, 2.4 or 2.7 systems, and multiple screws (locking, compressing) are used today—and to make it even harder to choose the right one, polymer, titanium or resorbable alloys materials are widespread. This Special Issue aims to encourage scientists to take on the challenge and help to choose the best, most effective, most promising, and most suitable strategy for treating people by publishing the results of material tests. I would also like to encourage you to test your custom implants (TMJ replacements, orthognathic plates, personalized onlay implants, etc.), which are possible to make thanks to the good availability of CAD/CAM techniques. Subtractive and additive manufacture methods of special material for maxillofacial surgery should be analyzed.
This Special Issue aims to focus the maxillofacial osteosynthesis.
It is my pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript for this Special Issue. Full papers, communications, and reviews are welcome.
Prof. Marcin Kozakiewicz
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.
