Special Issue "Sensors in Dentistry"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 February 2020).
Dentistry is evolving with the advancement of sensing technologies. Advanced technologies have a range of clinical applications including imaging and sensing tools for the diagnosis and monitoring of health and disease in oral hard and soft tissues as well as digital workflow for treatment planning and fabrication in preventive dentistry, restorative dentistry, endodontics, periodontics, oral surgery, and orthodontics. The recent advances in optical sources and detectors have unique applications for dental research, particularly when it comes to non-destructive testing.
I would like to invite my colleagues from across the world to contribute their expertise, insights, and findings in the form of original research articles and reviews for this Special Issue, entitled “Sensors in Dentistry”. This Special Issue will cover all aspects of clinical and research applications of sensing technologies operating in any region of the electromagnetic spectrum in the field of dentistry. Special attention will be given to 3D and tomographic imaging techniques in the dental field, including but not limited to Optical Coherence Tomography, Micro-Computed Tomography, and Intraoral Scanners. Articles focusing on the development of other cutting-edge sensors and detectors for intraoral use, particularly early detection, are also welcome.

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. Sensors 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 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.
