About the collection

BMC Oral Health has published this Collection on New biomaterials for modern dentistry. 

The use of biomaterials in restorative and regenerative dentistry is of increasing research interest, with novel biomaterials demonstrating utility for restoring dental tissues, providing structural scaffolds for tissue regeneration, and providing alternative treatment options for oral diseases including periodontal disease and oral cancer. 

The development of new biomaterials for medical applications requires a multidisciplinary approach, requiring collaboration between experts in material science, physics, chemistry, molecular cell biology, oral health, clinical practice, and surgery. In this Collection, BMC Oral Health collated multidisciplinary research across these fields in order to promote future collaborations that directly improve patient outcomes.

Furthermore, with the World Health Organization recognizing that the burden that poor oral health has on health care services worldwide is ever-increasing, notably in low- and middle-income countries, there is a clear need for more research into safe, effective, and affordable dental biomaterials with clinical utility in support of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) 3: Good-Health and Wellbeing and SDG 10: Reduced Inequalities.

For this purpose, BMC Oral Health welcomed submissions on a broad range of topics related to the development of new biomaterials for modern dentistry, including but not limited to:

  • New methods for manufacturing dental biomaterials
  • Studies assessing the biocompatibility, stability and mechanical properties of new biomaterials
  • Clinical models demonstrating the utility of new biomaterials for dental applications
  • Nanomaterials for oral applications, including the use of bio- and nano-coatings
  • The development and use of biomaterials for drug delivery in the treatment of oral health
