Special Issue "Oral Health and Disease Prevention"
A special issue of International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (ISSN 1660-4601). This special issue belongs to the section "Health Behavior, Chronic Disease and Health Promotion".
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 June 2022.
Oral hygiene or oral health is the most neglected area of global health and research. The oral cavity harbors many bacterial populations and is suggested to be involved in several health complications. Poor oral health unknowingly increases the risk of many other health complications, such as diabetes, cardiovascular disorders, chronic pulmonary disorders, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and psoriasis. Despite the progress that has been made in understanding oral health, prevention, early diagnosis, and management remain a challenge.
In this Special Issue, we invite researchers to offer specific recommendations for dental patients, and oral health care professionals and policy makers who can share their thoughts on the best actions to improve the efficacy of oral health and disease prevention.
