Bioengineering Materials in Dental Application

Description

In the last decades, multiple types of bioengineering materials, such as natural and artificial polymers, ceramics, and metals, were developed in the clinical application. In the dental and orthopedics area, different types of ceramics had been used for bone regeneration.

Bioengineering materials usually develop tissue-biomaterial interactions that suitably recapitulate a tissue or organ and integrate well with surrounding tissues which can achieve the desired results in human patients and greatly improve their care.

The dental applications of bioengineering materials have considerably broadened within the last few decades. The field of bioengineering materials needs to move towards new dental treatment concepts based on the fact of value-consciousness in the healthcare and biotechnology areas and utilizations that can create the future of this field. The design of new generations of smart dental novel materials, with architectures capable of facilitating their repair, replacement, regeneration, and so forth to meet specific functional and biological requirements which are used in dental applications is necessary.

It is a pleasure to invite investigators to contribute original research articles as well as review articles to fortify and extend the field of dentistry for bioengineering materials. The use of bioengineering materials presents difficulties, as novel biocompatible materials, becoming necessary to know their tissue-biomaterial interaction behavior in dental treatments. It is also imperative to acknowledge the material’s biodegradability, mechanical properties, architecture, and manufacturing technology needed in an attempt to promote enhancements in prevention, diagnosis, and therapies for dentistry.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • New biomaterials and techniques of dental bioengineering materials
  • New biomaterials and techniques for examination of dental bioengineering materials
  • New bioengineering devices for dental application
  • New dental technologies and strategies in bioengineering
  • New pharmaceutical technologies and strategies with bioengineering materials in dentistry
