Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues, 

We are delighted to invite you to submit a manuscript to our Special Issue on “Advanced Technologies and Materials in Dentistry”. This issue is designed to reflect the latest technologies in digital dentistry, latest developments in dental ceramics, mostly zirconia, and the utilization of additive manufacturing or 3D printing in dentistry. 

Digital dentistry is becoming the key element in our daily practice of dentistry. As the technology evolves in this field, more creative and accurate ways of designing and manufacturing appear and provide more options to dental practitioners for more efficiency and accuracy. Sharing the newest technologies, innovations, and creative ideas and techniques is a great way to improve this exciting new field of dentistry. 

Dental ceramics are great materials and provide ultimate aesthetics and biocompatibility. The appearance of zirconia, with its unique mechanical properties, opens up a new era for using ceramics in dentistry. The constant change in its optical, mechanical, and bonding properties need to be shared with dentists around the word to help them to stay updated regarding this exciting material.

Although subtractive technology or milling is still the main manufacturing technique, additive manufacturing or 3D printing offers many advantages over subtractive technology and is becoming more popular in dentistry. Additive manufacturing is relatively new in dentistry with many indications. It can be used to manufacture metals, resins, and ceramics. Any publications to review this technology or elaborate its indication, application, limitation, and accuracy in dentistry would be very helpful to scientifically introduce this new technology to the dental community.

For this special Issue, all systematic reviews, review particles, research articles, clinical articles, case reports, and techniques on advanced technologies and materials including digital dentistry, CAD/CAM systems, new ceramics, zirconia, additive manufacturing, and 3D printing in dentistry will be considered.
