Nanomaterials with exciting functional properties are increasingly being used for oral applications. This emerging technology has gained a vast expansion of knowledge in the last few years, especially in terms of the future clinical translation of scientific attainments, driven by new insights in developmental biology, cell and molecular biology of native tissues and oral tissues, and new nanomaterials with biological activities.
Oral research studies have shown that the properties which make nanomaterials useful for prevention, diagnosis, and therapeutic applications may also give rise to potential hazardous outcomes. This recent technology has generated a wave of new developments in the field of dental materials. Nanomaterial-based designs are able to mimic some of the mechanical and structural properties of native tissue and can promote better biointegration. Moreover, nanomaterials may be effective to control oral biofilm formation due to their biocidal, anti-adhesive, and drug delivery capabilities in an attempt to reduce microbial adhesion to oral devices.
Various compositions of nanomaterials have been employed as restorative materials. They have been employed to develop a new generation of restorative composites for treatment but also to prevent new caries, in a minimally invasive way, in the remineralization process.
This Special Issue aims to highlight the current knowledge in contemporary basic and clinical research on applications of nanomaterials in oral science.
These papers especially focus on new nanomaterial approaches in oral sciences, including the synthesis and incorporation of nanomaterials for oral tissue repair, biocompatibility, dental infection, early diagnosis, prevention, and the regeneration of oral tissue, pulp, and periodontal tissue. Other topics include nanobiomaterials as natural bioactive molecules, in vitro and in vivo applications, and the side effects of nanomaterial-coated implants.
On behalf of Nanomaterials, you are cordially invited to contribute an article to the Special Issue “Nanomaterials in Oral Science”. Research articles, reviews, and mini reviews are welcome.

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. Nanomaterials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2900 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
