About This Topic

In recent years, the interest in new materials for applications in dentistry has increased significantly. However, the progress made so far in this area is often not satisfactory for both patients and clinicians. The properties of these materials are not always (or rather not in all respects) as good as their biological counterparts. The fact that the world's population lives longer is also important, increasing expectations as to the durability of biomaterials and the reliability of structures used in the oral cavity. The above is a significant incentive to look for new solutions in terms of the structure, properties and technology of dental biomaterials. One example is the work on active materials that have a significant role to play in relation to regenerative processes. The materials that are currently being intensively worked on include: resin composite, polymers, glassio-nomers, ceramics, endodontics materials, graft materials, bioactive glasses, graphen, titanium, zirconium and silicate cement. New possibilities of dental treatment are also brought about by additive techniques, nanomaterial technologies; and also biomimetic coatings.

Potential topics include but are not limited to following materials:

• Resin-based dental materials
• Dental alloys
• Dental composite
• Nanomaterials
• Metamaterials
• Hydroxyapatites
• Orthodontic alloys
• Dental adhesives
• Materials for orthopedic dentistry
• Endodontic materials
• Impression materials
• Zirconia
• Bioceramics
• Silicate cements
• Titanium

Work on the properties of tissues in terms of their contact with the biomaterials used will also be considered.

Quantum Chemistry Estimation of Adhesion Strength of Hydroxyapatite with Titanium Substrate

Received: 12 May 2021;  Published: 27 October 2021;  doi: 10.21926/rpm.2104043


One of the ways to improve the fusion of an implant with bone tissue is through the use of biocompatible coatings, in particular, hydroxyapatite (HAp). It is important to assess the strength of the HAp adhesion to the implant. The measure of the strength of the bond of the coating with t [...]

Pilot Study of Tooth Structure Removed in Primary Molar Zirconia Crown Preparations of Typodont Teeth

Received: 10 February 2021;  Published: 28 May 2021;  doi: 10.21926/rpm.2102020


Prefabricated zirconia crowns (ZRCs) require a passive fit and more reduction than stainless steel crowns (SSC). To determine the mean and maximum reduction depths in the mesial-buccal and occlusal areas for three ZRC brands and one SSC in posterior primary typodont molars and to compare [...]
