Drug Delivery Systems in the Oral Cavity Using Biocompatible and Biomaterials

Fatemeh Mehryab*

In response to environmental limits and conditions, biological organisms develop sophisticated and effective methods for producing materials that frequently surpass synthetic materials with a same composition. It is essential to have a thorough grasp of the characteristics, make-up, and hierarchical organisation of biological materials in order to synthesise and develop innovative bio-inspired materials with similar traits. These biomaterials are increasingly being used in the medical field, such as as drug delivery vehicles or as skin and soft tissue substitutes for the treatment of wounds. According to this theory, a number of researchers have been asked to submit unique research findings and reviews that may inspire further research into novel biomaterials with immediate clinical uses in the related disciplines of medication delivery, wound care, and transportation.

Based on the following keywords stem cells, bone tissue engineering, functional biomaterials, scaffolds, and implants this special issue is organised into different areas. Applications for biomaterials have quickly spread to various scientific disciplines. Dentistry is one of the key areas where biomaterials are used. These materials can help with implant placement, surgery, and the treatment of oral disorders such peri-implantitis, periodontitis, and other dental issues. Drugs are released into target tissues of the oral cavity with the fewest possible side effects thanks in large part to drug delivery devices made of biocompatible materials. In order to increase the effectiveness and acceptability of therapy techniques for dental issues and oral disorders, researchers have examined a variety of delivery systems. Additionally, biomaterials might be used in biocompatible medication delivery systems as carriers. For instance, several delivery systems are made using natural polymeric materials such gelatin, chitosan, calcium phosphate, alginate, and xanthan gum. Additionally, several alloys are used in medication complexes for transportation purposes.
