About This Topic

Dear Colleagues

Prosthodontics plays a pivotal role in restoring oro-dental health, function, and aesthetics for our patients with dental and cranio-maxillo-facial issues. The field continually evolves, driven by innovative progress in dental materials, bio-ceramics and polymer-based biomaterials, to list a few. Furthermore, technologies including CAD-CAM, 3D-printing, and evolving AI-driven applications in dentistry have enabled the development and use of novel materials, hence facilitating the fabrication of better/superior tooth- and implant-supported restorations and allowing minimally invasive treatments, thereby, improving the quality of life of our patients as well as the armamentarium of the care provider. Indeed, clinical success of prosthodontics, today, aims to employ materials and techniques that eventually combine esthetics and bio-mechanical resistance, suitable to withstand the oral conditions and masticatory forces, in situ, and overtime. To explore these innovative advancements and their applications, the journal Recent Progress in Materials is pleased to announce a Special Issue on "Dental Materials in Prosthodontics: Recent Advances and Future Prospects"

Scope: This Special Issue aims to provide a platform for researchers, academics, clinicians and industry professionals to share their latest findings and innovations related to dental materials in prosthodontics. We welcome contributions encompassing, but not limited to, the following areas:

  • Novel dental materials for prosthodontics
  • Biocompatible materials and their applications
  • Advanced techniques in material characterization
  • Prosthodontic materials for digital dentistry
  • Biomimetic materials and their role in prosthodontics
  • Clinical applications and case studies
  • Multidisciplinary approaches in prosthodontics

The focus of submissions can also include physical, chemical, mechanical, and optical properties of the wide range of materials for tooth- and implant-supported restorations in prosthodontics, advantages in materials fabricated from digital technologies over conventional techniques, minimally invasive techniques, and clinical performance of such restorations. Original experimental , clinical as well as literature review articles are also welcome.

Submission Guidelines

Authors are invited to submit original research articles, reviews, and case studies addressing the above topics. Manuscripts should be prepared according to the journal's guidelines, which can be found on the journal's website ( Submissions will undergo a rigorous peer-review process.
