Special Issue "Tissue Regeneration in Dentistry: From Biomaterials to Stem Cell Therapy"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2020.
Interests: oral surgery; regenerative dentistry; oral implantology; dental radiography; implant dentistry; biomaterials
The evolution of medical research in the field of regenerative medicine has led, in recent years, to the use of regenerative techniques also in the dental field. Clinical applications of tissue regeneration are clinically used especially in the case of bone deficiencies to allow implant-supported rehabilitations. Biomaterials, membranes, growth factors, and use of stem cells represent the present and future of tissue regeneration in dentistry. As the guest editor of the Special Issue on these topics, which will be published in the Materials journal (Publisher MDPI, St Alban-Anlage 66, Basel, Switzerland; IF 2018: 2.972), I would like to invite colleagues who have experience in both the dental and biological fields and experts in biomaterials to participate.
This Special Issue aims to be a report on the state-of-the-art of clinical applications and research in the regenerative field that can provide dentists of various specialties with information on regenerative techniques.
The Special Issue will cover but not be limited to the following topics:
Bases of bone physiology;
Biomaterials in use in dentistry;
Growth factors for dental use;
Implant surface treatment;
Surgical techniques of bone regeneration;
Regeneration aspects in conservative dentistry;
Regeneration aspects in periodontal therapy;
Regeneration aspects in implantology;
Mesenchymal stem cells;
State-of-the-art of clinical applications of stem cells in bone regeneration.
It is my pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript for this Special Issue. Full papers, communications, and reviews are 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.
