Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The field of restoring hard and soft tissue lost by different damages includes several aspects of basic sciences such as physiology, stem cell biology, chemistry, molecules, and physical sciences.

There has been increased interest in surgical protocols, nanobiotechnologies, and tissue-engineering-proposed three-dimensional scaffolds and cell therapies as promising approaches in oral surgery.

The stem cells and new different molecules aim to improve the healthy regeneration of damaged orofacial tissue and reduce pathological wound healing responses, prevent resorption of bone, preserve the alveolar ridge, and provide sufficient bone for oral rehabilitation.

The aim of this Special Issue is to evaluate original research papers, reviews, and technical reports, encouraging manuscripts concerning the state of art in the fields of stem cell biology and molecules for the treatment of the bone defects.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Dental pulp stem cells for bone regeneration;
  • Applications of molecules for bone regeneration;
  • Stem cells seeded on scaffolds for tissue engineering;
  • Stem cells and blood-derived growth factors for hard and soft tissue healing;
  • Antioxidant protection against oxidative stress of new generation compounds on different mesenchymal cell lines;
  • Tissue engineering;
  • Bone regeneration;
  • Dental implants, biomaterials, and surface properties;
  • Stem cells as tools to test novel biomaterials for regenerative medicine.

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
