Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In this Special Issue, we invite submissions exploring the latest advances in the field of orthodontic technology and individualized treatment. Particularly welcome are works that present current research methodologies regarding quantifiable biological parameters pertinent to orthodontic technology and case-sensitive treatment in children or adolescents. More specifically, we aim to include recent advances in genetic and biological mechanisms related to oro-dento-facial development, as well as links between dental genetics and overall health.

Additionally, we welcome manuscripts dealing with the design and application of biomaterials, as well as their interactions with the body. Contemporary “invisible” orthodontic appliances, such as clear aligners and lingual braces, are treatment options preferable to adults; however, several aspects need further investigation.
