Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Dental enamel is the hardest substance in the human body. It acts as a barrier to protect the teeth from physical, thermal, and chemical forces. Dental erosion is a chemical condition characterized by the loss of mineralized tooth substance caused by acids of intrinsic or extrinsic origin, not derived from oral bacteria, while dental caries is a disease characterized by the demineralization of tooth tissues due to acids produced by oral bacteria in the biofilm in the presence of fermentable carbohydrates.

This Special Issue aims to discuss the symptoms and clinical presentation of dental erosion and caries and provide guidance on important strategies that can be used to prevent acid challenges and the loss or repair of tooth enamel.

Therefore, studies focusing on the prevention and control of erosion and caries are of particular interest. We are inviting relevant original research, systematic reviews, meta-analyses, and short communications covering these topics.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page.

This review discusses both preventive measures and clinically implemented therapy procedures that have been developed recently for the prevention and treatment of tooth erosion. Methods: The databases PubMed, Scopus, and Web of Science were used for a thorough search. Studies on the prevention and treatment of dental erosion that were conducted in English and used in vitro were among the inclusion criteria. Results: The search turned up 391 papers in total, with 34 of those publications matching the requirements for inclusion. Varnishes, toothpastes, and solutions containing fluoride and other substances were used as preventive measures. Conclusions: Dental erosion is a significant issue, and taking preventative steps is crucial to lessening the disease’s spread and its effects. Interventions based on fluoride seem to be successful at halting erosion and encouraging remineralization. To effectively address severe tooth erosion, therapeutic methods, including composite restorations, prosthetic crowns, and veneers, are available. Dental erosion causes aesthetic and functional issues that are best addressed with less invasive treatments like direct composite restorations. To improve and broaden the range of available treatments for this common dental issue, additional research and development are required. Full article
