Special Issue "Digital Dentures"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 28 February 2022.
Interests: digital dentures; complete denture materials; occlusal splints; occlusion; mechanical properties of dental materials; jaw tracking devices; temporomandibular joint
Interests: dental practice; prosthodontics; orofacial pain; oral health
Digital technology is changing our practice every day, especially in prosthodontics, with 3D printers and scanners becoming an integral part of the routine workflow. Fixed dental prostheses are hard to imagine without CAD/CAM technology, both additive and subtractive, and the approach to removable complete and partial dentures has also evolved. The most recent literature describes many new protocols, materials, suggestions, and applications of digital technology in the fabrication of removable complete dentures.
Today’s rapid technological evolution makes it hard for both researchers and clinicians to keep up with the latest developments, and a lack of research poses potential challenges to integrating novel technologies in the custom workflow. The research process, which ends with manuscript publication, takes considerable time. Due to this unavoidable delay, the publication of independent studies will always somewhat lag behind the appearance of novel technologies and materials.
The upcoming Special Issue focuses on novel technologies and materials for removable complete denture fabrication and aims to provide a clinical and scientific update. We cordially invite all contributors to present new studies, systematic reviews, and narrative reviews focused on digital dentures.
Possible topics for this Special Issue include but are not limited to:
- Milled dentures;
- 3D-printed dentures;
- Virtual articulator;
- Digital impression;
- CAD/CAM denture materials;
- Acrylic resin;
- Polyamide resin;
- Denture teeth materials;
- Mechanical properties of digital denture materials;
- Occlusal splint;
- Digital denture fabrication protocol;
- Systematic reviews and meta-analysis.

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 papers will be 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. Dentistry Journal is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 1400 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.
