Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

I would like to invite you to submit a contribution to a Special Issue on Applied Sciences of Pharmacology in Dentistry in the Journal Applied Sciences.

Pharmacology plays an important role in dentistry but sometimes it is underestimated. Indeed, nowadays it is already a challenge to understand the specific aspects of how drugs influence or are correlated with body systems. It is evident the necessary to better understand the pharmacological management of patients undergone to dental practises, hence this Special Issue welcomes manuscripts that can contribute the knowledge necessary to effectively clarify the administration of drugs in dental field.

Pharmacological aspects were constantly evolving over time and the currently practises are not the same of the past. It is very hard to stay up to date with the newest discoveries, for this reason the aim of this Special Issue will also be focused to help clinicians to know alternative approaches, to discover new protocols and to learn for a good management of patients at risk.

A large number of different classes of drugs are used in dentistry, depending on the requirements. Therefore a more awareness and knowledge should be increase amongst clinicians toward pharmacological therapy both in adults and children or special needs ones.

Adopting multi-, inter-, and trans-disciplinary perspectives and a systems approach, expected submissions will cover the following topics:

  1. Pharmacological prevention and management in dental practises
  2. Experimental pharmacological protocols
  3. Pharmacological therapy in patients at risk
  4. Sustainability of innovative and alternative medicaments

All original articles, case reports, and review articles will be welcome.
