Metals and alloys for medical and dental applications should satisfy the increasingly demanding manufacturing requirements and service conditions of the metal industry. In general, biomedical metals and alloys can be chosen on the basis of their corrosion resistance, yield strength, Young’s modulus, toughness, fatigue strength, and hardness or wear resistance. In some instances, the application of a metal or alloy may require a combination of two or more of these properties, with each reaching an acceptable level of clinical performance. We should first review the current status of biomedical metallic materials. With advancing technology and more challenging conditions, we also should be aware of the situation that the need has arisen for new advances in biomedical metals and alloys. Therefore, as guest editors, we cordially invite you to submit a manuscript to the upcoming Special Issue on “Advances in Metals and Alloys Used for Medical and Dental Applications”. The aim of this Special Issue is to advance the state of knowledge and expertise in the field of metallic biomaterials. This Special Issue will include original research articles, reviews, and communications. Suggested topics include but are not limited to:
- Physical and mechanical properties;
- Young’s modulus;
- Fatigue failure;
- Corrosion resistance;
- Clinical applications;
- Titanium and dental implant;
- Mechanical testing of metallic biomaterials;
- Subtractive and additive manufacturing;
- Dimensional accuracy of metal frameworks;
- Coating and surface modification;
- Sterilization and cleaning of metallic biomaterials;
- New generation metallic biomaterials.

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. Metals is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 1600 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.
