Special Issue "Dental Biomaterials 2017"
A special issue of Materials (ISSN 1996-1944).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2017).
Interests: antibiotic use, biofilm biology, antimicrobial biomaterials, prebiotics
There is growing interest in the use of alkaline dental materials, which are able to improve clinical outcomes in dentistry and which go beyond the concept of a simple dental material, which fills a space in a tooth or lines a cavity. These biologically-active materials are in the form of alkaline fluids, pastes and dental cements. This Special Issue on biomaterials used in dentistry focuses on alkaline materials used in endodontics and restorative dentistry, which can induce hard tissue formation and exert antimicrobial actions.
