Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
With the advancement of technology, great progress has been made in the periodontology field. The prevalence of periodontal disease is relatively high and has been reported from 20–45% or higher. Various treatments and biomaterials have been applied to increase the effectiveness of periodontal treatment. The long-term effects of periodontal treatment have been published. Despite advances in periodontal treatment, tooth extraction and further implant placement are being made. A protocol to increase the success rate of implants has been proposed. Various methods have been proposed that can be used in areas where the placement of dental implants is difficult. Stem cells and growth factors have been used as various biomaterials.
This scope of this Special Issue will serve as a forum for papers addressing the following concepts:
- Understanding and mechanisms of periodontal disease;
- Treatment of periodontal disease;
- Short- and long-term effects of periodontal treatment;
- Various soft and hard tissue regeneration methods;
- Clinical outcome of dental implants;
- Enhancement of efficacy with application of growth factors;
- Cell therapy in periodontal and implant treatment.
