Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

It is our pleasure to announce a new Special Issue of the journal Applied Science .

The main topics of this Special Issue will be oral pathology and oral medicine. In this Special Issue, we aim to publish reviews, original articles, clinical studies, case reports, and case series that could help oral pathologists to better understand the pathology, etiology, diagnosis, prevention, and management of oral conditions of the head, neck, and oral mucosal structures; orofacial pain conditions; salivary gland disorders; and taste disorders. The dental management of people with medical problems and/or complicated medical conditions is also a topic of interest. Our goal is to present recent findings to improve clinical decision-making and care of medical disorders affecting the oral and maxillofacial areas.

Topics of interest for this Special Issue include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Potentially malignant disorders and oral carcinoma: diagnosis and management;
  • Diagnosis and treatment of benign lesions of the oral mucosa;
  • Oral diseases in patients with systemic problems;
  • Management of oral and maxillofacial pain;
  • New technologies in dentistry and oral pathology;
  • Management of special needs patients;
  • Management of interesting clinical cases.

We hope you will contribute with your high-quality research and we look forward to hearing from you.

Dr. Gaspare Palaia
Guest Editor
