Special Issue "Study of Relationship between Oral Health and Systemic Health"
A special issue of Dentistry Journal (ISSN 2304-6767).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (1 April 2021).
Interests: oral-systemic links in periodontitis and peri-implantitis; innovation through multidisciplinary and interprofessional care
People are living longer, fuller lives than ever before while managing chronic systemic conditions, and environmental risks. The interplay of how these conditions and interventions affect oral health, and how compromised oral health affects the host, drives the need to understand the intricacies of host immune-inflammatory response to periodontal pathogens in a fast-increasing number of patients. Globally, we strive to give underserved populations access to the care they deserve. Research elucidates the quality of life that comes from a healthy dentition has far reaching impacts. For example, healthy dentition allows for balanced, fiber- and protein-rich nutrition required to maintain glycemic control; it allows for comfortable speaking and pain-free function; and it is a large part of high esthetics, which are obviously in great demand because of the psycho-social impact of a great smile.
Lighting our path from research to clinical application, we take advantage of innovative technologies and multidisciplinary and interprofessional contributions. The relationships between oral and systemic health have been long been researched and published. Like any longstanding topic of research, the concepts proven invalid through well designed studies and meta-analytic analysis are discarded, while those concepts that stand up to evaluation and re-evaluation shape clinical practice. Unfortunately, in this process, information and misinformation intermingle through the sieve of individual opinion on the path to clinical implementation. The purpose of this Issue is to take a close, evidence-based look at the oral-systemic link in an attempt to apply it to multidisciplinary dental practice needed to manage increasing numbers of complex cases.
