Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are honored to announce a Special Issue of the Materials journal (IF 3.057) on “Nano Particles and Fiber Reinforced Materials in Dentistry.”

The reinforcement of composite dental materials with nanoparticles or fibers has been described in order to enhance mechanical properties and clinical performance of composites.

Nanoscience offers new possibilities for dental materials. Nanofillers with different size and shape are commonly used as dental restoratives.

Fiber reinforced materials based on carbon, polyaramid, polyethylene, and glass have been largely studied and, more recently, glass fibers of various compositions are more commonly applied as restorative and prosthetic materials.

These materials have been investigated with a particular focus on fracture strength, fatigue resistance, load-bearing capacity, flexural strength, compressive strength, bonding adhesion, layer thickness, bacterial adhesion, and clinical reliability.

With the introduction of new technologies, adhesion protocols, resin matrices, fibers, nanofillers, and application techniques, the reinforced-material field need further understanding.

In the light of the above, any progress in design, manufacturing, testing and clinical application is of great importance for further expansion of micro- and nano- filled polymers and fiber-reinforced composites for dental purposes.

Materials is preparing a Special Issue focused on reinforced materials for dental use.

Possible research topics include but are not limited to the keywords mentioned below. We kindly invite researchers, investigators, and clinicians to contribute with research studies, in vitro tests, case reports, clinical trials, and reviews that could improve the understanding of filled and reinforced dental materials.

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. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2000 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.

Fiber-reinforced composites are used as restorative materials for prosthetic oral rehabilitation. Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is an accustomed affection with various oral manifestations. This study aimed to evaluate the behavior of two high-performance CAD/CAM milled reinforced composites (Trinia™, TriLor) in artificial saliva at different pH levels through immersion tests, and to determine if changes in mass or surface morphology at variable pH, specific for patients affected by GERD, appear. After investigating the elemental composition and surface morphology, the specimens were immersed in Carter Brugirard artificial saliva for 21 days at different pH values (5.7, 7.6, and varying the pH from 5.7 to 3). The values of the weighed masses during the immersion tests were statistically processed in terms of mean and standard deviation. Results suggested that irrespective of the medium pH, the two composites presented a similar mass variation in the range of −0.18 (±0.01)–1.82 (±0.02) mg after immersion, suggesting their stability when in contact with artificial saliva, an aspect which was also highlighted by scanning electron microscope (SEM) analysis performed on the immersed surfaces. Novel composite biomaterials can be a proper alternative for metal alloys used for prosthetic frameworks in patients suffering from GERD. Full article
