Special Issue "Oral Health to Global Health: Impact of Nutrition"
A special issue of Dentistry Journal (ISSN 2304-6767).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2019
The impact of oral health on systemic diseases are well documented. Studies have shown up to 50% of heart attacks have a strong association with oral bacteria. A close link between periodontal diseases and diabetes, hypertension, neurologic disorders and autoimmune diseases are convincingly demonstrated in large cohorts. More, importantly, oral manifestations are one of the earliest clues of the evolvement of some of these prevalent systemic diseases. As the gap between various branches of medicine and dentistry is closing, a coordinated approach of maintaining optimal oral health would not only reduce commonly encountered systemic diseases, but would also significantly diminish global health burdens.
This Special Issue is intended to bring together different branches of dental, medical and nutritional specialties to share their experiences, with the aim of reducing oral health burden to improve systemic diseases and beyond. This Special Issue welcomes the submission of original manuscripts (unpublished research works), updated reviews (of the existing literature), and brief commentaries (on emerging areas of global health concern).
