Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Regenerative approaches in dentistry provide a potential treatment for oral disease and reconstruction of the tissues that are otherwise lost or cannot be replaced by biological tissues. Tissue regeneration requires the triad of tissue engineering (growth factors, scaffold, and stem cells) to induce tissue healing in the sterile environment, while it also requires bacterial and inflammatory control during the treatment of infectious disease in the oral cavity. Although regenerative treatment approaches have good clinical outcomes in most case reports, outcomes are still unpredictable. For this reason, innovative and novel biomaterials, anti-microbial, and anti-inflammatory protocols are required to improve tissue regeneration for dental applications.

We would like to invite you to submit your research regarding potential and novel biomaterials and treatment protocols for dental tissue regeneration in the oral cavity to contribute to this unique and compelling area where tissue regeneration needs to be achieved in a balance with inflammatory and microbial control. Please refer to the following keywords below to submit to this Special Issue.

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.
