Special Issue "Sport and Dental Traumatology"
A special issue of Dentistry Journal (ISSN 2304-6767).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2021).
I believe that, in the wide field of dental research, an area not sufficiently and organically explored remains that of the oral and dental traumatology problems in sports activities.
This topic concerns at least 30% of the world’s young and adult population in its various aspects and causes many medical and social organization problems.
Particular attention should be paid to primary and secondary prevention, with particular focus on adolescents and young adult age groups and, also, to the finalization and development of clear and organic therapeutic protocols that can mitigate the serious functional and aesthetic consequences that a late or incomplete therapeutic approach often can causes.
With this Special Issue, we wish to collect the best current contributions in this wide field of study with particular attention to the treatment of injuries involving pulp and supporting tissues (avulsions and luxations) and in the selection and adoption of effective protective systems (mouth guard) to soften the consequences of such serious injuries at any age and condition of use (sport tipology). With these contributions, this Special Issue plans to clarify the state of research in the field of oral bacterial flora in athletes and its influence in response to the aforementioned traumatic events.
