Multidisciplinary integration is necessary to achieve effective and predictable outcomes in every field of medicine. Oral implantology, periodontology, oral surgery, prosthesis, and materials science are strongly interconnected research fields. These disciplines have significantly evolved in recent years: improvements in implant macro- and microdesign, and new bone substitute characteristics have been proposed to meet specific functional and biological requirements.
We invite authors to submit original research articles about new biomaterials and techniques applied to the interconnected fields of oral implantology, periodontology, oral surgery, prosthesis, and materials science. Systematic reviews and meta-analyses are also welcome if they provide new sound scientific evidence in these fields.
Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:
- New biomaterials and/or grafting techniques for bone regeneration;
- New biomaterials and/or techniques for peri-implant soft tissue management;
- New dental implant macro- and microdesigns for the improvement of osseointegration;
- New technologies to avoid implant corrosion or degradation;
- New concepts on microbiota biofilm control around dental implants.
We hope that new ideas will promote a fast development of these exciting topics, and we invite you to submit to this Special Issue the best of your research activities.

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.
