Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The use of metallic dental materials in dentistry has continued since primordial times, with even the most advanced contemporary dental treatments using them due to their excellent mechanical and biological properties. In addition, the ductility and wide range of different properties with the available biomedical alloys make metallic dental materials one of the most versatile groups of synthetic structures that can be applied in oral rehabilitation. It is possible to observe the presence of metallic dental materials in endodontics, operative dentistry, preventive dentistry, pediatrics, prosthodontics, implantology, and many other dental specialties. However, although metallic dental materials are extremely important to dentistry, allowing us to promote adequate oral health in patients, they are not failure-free. Nevertheless, their mechanical and biological properties in general are related to their durability, long-term behavior, and tissue response and should be evaluated with well-developed and relevant scientific reports.

Therefore, this Special Issue aims to cover the most recent topics regarding the development of metallic dental materials, as well as their processing for oral applications, mechanical responses, biological issues, and any property that can positively or negatively modify the health of patients.

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. Metals is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
