Dental materials represent a fundamental aspect of clinical dentistry, which uniquely employs almost all classes of materials in the restoration or replacement of diseased oral tissue. Recent advances in nanotechnology have aided in the development of a variety of nanomaterials for dental applications, and this technology is being embraced for its relevance in both tooth restoration and craniofacial tissue engineering. Nanomaterials such as nanoparticles, nanotubes, nano-fibres and nanosheets are driving the development of innovative material, and the possible enhancement of the properties of restorative materials is currently being explored, including antimicrobial properties, remineralising activity, caries inhibition, use as disinfectants in root canals, surface modification of implants and tissue engineering.
This Special Issue aims to provide an overview of research in nanomaterials for different applications in dentistry as well as the translation of these technologies. The topics of interest include dental restoratives, antimicrobials, adhesive systems, caries prevention and remineralisation, root canal disinfectants, tissue regeneration strategies and safety aspects.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 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 2400 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.
