New Frontiers and Boundaries in the Use of Biomaterials in Dentistry
It is a pleasure to invite you to submit manuscripts to the forthcoming Topic “New Frontiers and Boundaries in the Use of Biomaterials in Dentistry”.
Biomaterials play an important role in modern dentistry and, among them, implantology has led to a paradigm shift that has decisively influenced dental therapy and broadened the fields of dental research. However, the placement of implants requires the presence of a sufficient amount of alveolar bone. When the bone volume is not adequate, regenerative procedures are needed, which are performed using different techniques and mostly include the use of biomaterials. Among them, autogenous or heterologous bone and a large variety of synthetic or animal-derived biomaterials have been used. These biomaterials have been proposed in different conformations, such as granules, gel, blocks, membrane, novel structures, and 3D printing devices.
Unfortunately, the clinical results are not always optimal, and the research behind them is often inadequate for guiding the clinician in the correct use of the biomaterial.
This Topic aims to serve as a platform for the publication of papers detailing strong evidence in reporting on the characteristics of various biomaterials and their clinical use in dentistry.
In vitro, experimental, and clinical studies on the use of biomaterials of any type, including oral implants, may be suitable.
We look forward to receiving your submissions.
