Clinical and Experimental Research in Dentistry and Bioactive Materials
We invite researchers with an expertise in dentistry to contribute to this Special Issue entitled “Clinical and Experimental Research in Dentistry”, with an emphasis on bioactive materials. Innovations in both dental materials and techniques are dynamic in nature, partly driven by various challenges over the last 30 years—for example, environmental issues impacting the clinical use of amalgam restoration, consumer demand for improved aesthetics, and the need for improvements in the materials to prevent marginal leakage, secondary caries and wear in the composite resin restorations, as well as enabling these materials to be bioactive in nature. The development of these products as well as varnishes, glass ionomer cements, fluoride-containing glasses, ACP-CCP, functional tricalcium phosphate, silver diamine fluoride (SDF), resin infiltration and self-assembling proteins, etc., for the treatment of early carious lesions and tooth sensitivity has been a challenge both for manufactures and researchers, and there is a requirement to perform well-designed clinical trials to evaluate these products once they have been successfully evaluated in the laboratory to establish their effectiveness in terms of durability and fluoride release at sustainable levels. The aim of this Special Issue is to review the innovations (including laboratory techniques) for the evaluation and treatment of early carious lesions (remineralization and/or resin infiltration), secondary caries and tooth sensitivity in general as well, as well as including papers that evaluate the bioactivity of these products in both the laboratory and clinical environments.
