Bioluminescence has successfully created benefits for in vitro research as well as for bioimaging in diagnosis, guidance, and monitoring of treatment goal achievement. Different light sources and a great selection of endogenous and exogenous fluorophores prove to be a highly valuable addition.
Fluorescence currently finds its application in clinical dentistry in resin curing, caries diagnosis, activity monitoring, diseased tissue removal guidance, plaque and calculus identification and removal, mucosal and tumor diagnosis, and fluorescence-guided surgery. Photoactivated disinfection and photobiomodulation round up the spectrum of use.
This Special Issue welcomes submissions covering fluorescence-guided surgery and enhanced theragnosis (diagnosis and treatment guidance) in all the clinical specialties as well as for photoactivated disinfection and photobiomodulation.

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.
