This Special Issue invites submissions with a focus on orthodontics and advances in oral hygiene and biofilms.
Orthodontic fixed appliances interfere with tooth brushing and facilitate accumulation of dental biofilm (plaque). Failure to maintain good oral hygiene during orthodontic treatment can result in adverse effects such as enamel demineralization, gingivitis, and halitosis. Biofilm control in patients wearing orthodontic fixed appliances is therefore of paramount importance. Moreover, the type and the surface proprieties of orthodontic materials can play a significant role in bacterial adhesion and dental biofilm accumulation.
In order to capture the diverse knowledge and experience in this field, we encourage submissions across a range of dental research disciplines. We seek a mix of quality manuscripts: these may include original dental research and review manuscripts on key topics of interest.
