Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Successful dental treatment depends on the capacity to make diagnoses. New frontiers in oral medicine have enhanced the diagnostic and therapeutic workflow. Diagnosis is made of key elements: definition, classification, and prioritization.
Oral medicine encompasses a variety of disciplines, ranging from basic science to clinical studies. Anatomy, pathology, epidemiology, genetics, biochemistry, microbiology, and engineering provide new proposals and perspectives to the current scenario.
However, controversy remains regarding treatment alternatives with respect to the burden of care and their risk/benefit on the quality of life of patients.
For this Special Issue, we welcome studies introducing 3D technologies, investigating signs and symptoms of oral pathologies and syndromic conditions and comparing different diagnostic techniques and therapeutic approaches in oral medicine.
