Current and future biomaterials for dental application

Edited by: Prof Hyeong-Cheol Yang

A variety of dental biomaterials have been developed as clinical needs of dental patient increase. Newly developed dental biomaterials should be physically stable and biocompatible for their own purposes in oral environment. Currently, the most frequently used dental materials include resin composites, titanium alloys, zirconia and etc. Materials for tissue engineering are also attracting interests for hard and soft oral tissue regeneration. This special issue titled 'Current and future biomaterials for dental application', which is published in Biomaterials Research, covers preparation, modification, biocompatibility and physical property of current and future dental biomaterials.
