Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Adhesive restorative dentistry has taken on a key role in modern dentistry, shifting the boundary between conservative and prosthetic dentistry.

In fact, direct composite restorations are not only indicated for small and medium-sized cavities, but also represent a valid and durable solution in more complex clinical situations requiring partial or complete cuspal coverage.

In recent years, various moulding techniques have been described in the literature; however, the clinical difficulties in managing the anatomy and the problems associated with the polymerisation of composite materials lead many clinicians to prefer indirect approaches in large cavities.

Therefore, the aim of this Special Issue is to focus on minimally invasive treatment options to effectively restore more or less compromised tooth elements and on the correct management of the treatment plan and the systematic application of protocols by the clinician, which remain the key factors for the predictability of successful restorations over time.

Clinical trials, reviews, and case reports will be welcome, highlighting the use of new materials and new technologies, the use of minimally invasive techniques in restorative and endodontics, and the criteria contributing to the choice of treatment plan.
