Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Over the past few years, the design and synthesis of nanostructured materials has represented a cutting-edge topic that has attracted many researchers from different fields, mainly in medicine, oral medicine, and dentistry.

This Special Issue aims to cover the synthesis and functionalization of different nanomaterials, as well as their characterization and application in oral medicine, nanodentistry, and nanotechnology in dentistry.

For this Special Issue, we are interested in several classes of nanomaterials: bone grafts, dental filling, implant materials and implant coating, nanogels, polymeric materials, peptide-based materials, hybrid bionanomaterials, biocomposite materials, nanoporous materials, bioactive scaffolds, nanostructured materials, nanocrystalline materials, nanomaterials functionalized by proteins or other biomolecules to their surface, bioceramics, calcium phosphates (CaP and HA), calcium silicate-based, carbon-based (graphene, carbon nanotubes) materials, nanoparticles for bioimaging or therapy (thermal therapy, drug delivery, controlled release), magnetic materials (magnetite, maghemite), silica, zirconia, silver, titania, and nanoparticles acting as antimicrobial agent.

In particular, we are seeking papers focused on:

Smart nanomaterials designed to interact with biological tissues and fluids, and the biological aspect of nanostructures;

Nanoparticles for oral disease preventive drugs, prostheses and for teeth implantation;

Nanomaterials delivering active substances or drugs, preventing and/or curing oral diseases and maintain oral health care. 

Your participation in the present Special Issue on “Nanomaterials for Oral Medicine” will provide the readers of Nanomaterials with an overview of the latest research on nanomaterials having great potential and/or providing decisive advantages regarding their use in oral medicine and nanodentistry. nanomaterials for 3D printing, 3D printed functional nanomaterials.

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. Nanomaterials 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 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.
