Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The discovery and development of natural compounds from foods, drinks, herbs, and microbial have played pivotal roles in the fields of human medicine. There are soft and hard tissues in the oral cavity, which is a warm, humid, and hypoxic environment. Microflora and host immunity imbalance, virus infection, cigarette smoking and betel chewing induce several diseases, such as caries, periodontitis, herpes, and oral cancer. Here, we recruit manuscripts focused on original natural compounds, modified natural compounds, and natural compounds combined with drug delivery, application, and working mechanisms in oral disease prevention and therapy, including anti-oral disease pathogens, anti-oral cancer, additive natural compounds in dental materials, etc.
