It is our pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript to the Special Issue “Advanced Biomaterials, Coatings and Techniques: Applications in Medicine and Dentistry”.
The field of biomaterials is a very extensive one, encompassing both the materials themselves and their manufacturing methods, which are constantly developing.
The use of biomaterials for medical and oral applications is associated with specific issues concerning their biocompatibility, bio-integration, antimicrobial properties, corrosion resistance and long-term performance, as a consequence of their close contact with human tissues. In the field of regenerative medicine, biomaterials are of great importance when used as scaffolds to promote cell growth and differentiation, resulting in the healing of tissue lesions.
Coatings play an important role in achieving the most crucial properties of biomaterials through surface modification, making them suitable for medical and oral applications.
The aim of this Special Issue is to provide an updated outlook on the applications of biomaterials and coatings in medicine and dentistry, as well as presenting innovative manufacturing technologies. It represents a good opportunity for researchers and scholars worldwide to disseminate different aspects of their work and reporting the results related to this topic. Research articles, reviews, and communications are equally invited for this Special Issue.

Title: Polydopamine surface modification of bioabsorbable Mg-Sc-Sr scaffold prepared by laser micro hole drilling for bone regeneration
Authors: Pedram Sotoudeh Bagha, Cameron Vo, Kayley Romero, Xiaoming Yu, Mehdi RazaviAbstract: To enhance bone regeneration associated with bone loss and defects, metallic absorbable scaffolds have already been developed with different methods, such as additive manufacturing. However, partial melting of the metal particles and void formation in the structure decreases the structural integrity and reliability of the scaffold. This study used laser micro hole drilling to prepare 70% porous absorbable Mg-Sc-Sr disks with 250 µm pore sizes. First, Mg-0.5Sc-0.1Sr (wt.%) disks were prepared by casting under protective argon gas in a metal mold and heat treated at 400 °C for 6 h. Then, disks of 10 mm diameter and 2 mm thickness were drilled via laser micromachining with a 6-W femtosecond laser beam focused by a convex lens. Finally, scaffolds were coated with a polydopamine film after immersing in a solution of polydopamine in methanol for 24 h to control their biodegradation and improve biocompatibility. The microstructure of the polydopamine-coated disks was examined with optical and secondary electron microscopy equipped with energy dispersive spectroscopy (SEM/EDS). The corrosion behavior was studied with electrochemical and static immersion tests in Hanks solution after 3 days. Finally, a cell viability test was performed to analyze the cytocompatibility of the scaffolds. The effect of the polydopamine coating on corrosion control and cell viability of the scaffolds was discussed.
