Material sciences are major fields of research in the current era of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine strategies, and these new developments define the new frontier in many medical disciplines. Biomaterials play a significant role in the expansion of regenerative treatments of the maxilla, to allow more sophisticated oral rehabilitation of edentulous patients. Periodontology, orthodontics, oral surgery, esthetic and implant dentistry are significant beneficiaries of these recent promising developments and these interconnected clinical domains are themselves major sources of research in implantable materials, particularly bone materials or surgical adjuvants.
During recent decades, a plethora of different types of digital technology, dental biomaterials, bone graft, adjuvants and/or bone substitutes, growth and differentiation factors, enamel matrix proteins or various combinations thereof, have been employed to achieve bone and periodontal regeneration. Despite positive observations in animal models and successful outcomes reported for many of the available regenerative techniques and materials in patients, robust information on the degree to which reported clinical improvements reflect true bone and periodontal regeneration does not exist.
The aim of this Special Issue is to provide insight into the recent advances in the field of dentistry. Studies incorporating a new approach or providing novel information are of high priority. Innovative studies and systematic and narrative reviews of dental technologies in the field of dentistry are also welcome.
It is our pleasure to invite you to contribute to this Special Issue.

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.
