The aim of this Special Issue is to provide theoretical and practical knowledge on the application of innovative nanotechnologies and nanomaterials that cross through a translational approach, bringing together all the various specialties involved in the study of dentistry and applied to the biomedical research.
The approach for studying oral diseases (inflammatory, degenerative, metabolic, and neoplastic) has changed dramatically in recent years with the advent of new methods of analysis (from anatomy to clinical–instrumental pathophysiological interpretation, from molecular biology to proteomics, from functional and morphological analysis, structural and ultrastructural, to the studies in vitro and in a single cell). There is also increasing evidence of the importance of the involvement of stem compartments and their use, as in the case of human-derived mesenchymal cells taken from dental pulp and cells of the microenvironment in the pathogenesis of these diseases. Finally, it seems important to underline the growing development of experimental medicine and medical/surgical biotechnology as the evaluation and the use of new biomaterials–biomimetics combined with sophisticated and minimally invasive surgical techniques.

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 2200 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.
