Clinical Implant Dentistry and Related Research aims to advance the scientific and technical developments within clinical implant dentistry and related subjects. The journal addresses itself to clinicians, researchers, teachers and students using and/or studying osseointegrated implants in the oral & maxillofacial areas. The journal publishes original research and reviews on all clinical and basic science aspects of osseointegrated implants, bone biology, bone grafts and bone substitutes.

The principal aim of Dental Materials is to promote rapid communication of scientific information between academia, industry, and the dental practitioner. Original Manuscripts on clinical and laboratory research of basic and applied character which focus on the properties or performance of dental materials or the reaction of host tissues to materials are given priority publication. Other acceptable topics include application technology in clinical dentistry and dental laboratory technology.
