Special Issue "Bioactive Coatings on Elements Used in the Oral Cavity Environment"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 20 December 2023 | Viewed by 7893
Interests: dentistry material characterization; mechanical testing of dentistry material; orthodontic archwire testing and modification; skeletal anchorage; orthodontic biomechanics
The cooperation between medical sciences, including dentistry, and materials engineering, is a space for solutions capable of changing everyday clinical work to be born. The modification of a dental element’s surface through the use of bioactive coatings is a promising method for improving their biocompatibility and coping with complications resulting from the influence of pathogens. With the belief that research in this field could change the face of modern dentistry in all its specialties being at the heart of this new Special Issue of Coatings, original research and review articles will be featured. Contributions will focus on the basics and applications of bioactive coatings on elements used in the oral environment, with an aim to emphasize the impact of this method on increasing biocompatibility and reducing complications.
