Recent advances in dentistry have led to improvements in diagnostic capabilities, as well as the rehabilitation of dental and oral tissues and the overall management and improvement of oral functioning. Dental biomaterials have played critical roles in these advances in rehabilitation and in the recovery of form and function.
Many improvements have been made in the biomaterials used for dental amalgams and dental composites, as well as biomaterials for dental and maxillofacial grafting and tissue regeneration. The current revolution in nanotechnology and nanobiology has allowed for more innovation in the fields of bioactive glasses, resins, and polymers, with the potential for future applications in medicine and dentistry.
This Special Issue calls for recent studies from a range of fields in science and engineering that are poised to guide investigations on tissue-contacting biomaterials to control healing and advances in dental materials and their application using novel and interdisciplinary methods. and understand mechanisms, clinical perspectives, etc., which, overall, will be beneficial to healthcare.
