Oral, periodontal diseases, chewing disorders, and many destructive inflammatory diseases of the supporting tissues of the teeth are caused by an imbalance between the host defense and environmental factors like bacteria, smoking, and poor nutrition. For these reasons, the focus should not only be on plaque control and removal of bacteria but also on improving host resistance through smoking abstention, stress reduction, and a healthy diet. The importance of micronutrients has been extensively reviewed, and it was concluded that prevention and treatment of periodontitis daily nutrition should include sufficient antioxidants, probiotics, natural agents, vitamin D, and calcium. Regarding antioxidants, vitamin C has attracted the attention of periodontal researchers. To date, there is limited available research investigating the effect of diet supplementation on the oral and periodontal condition.
Recently, a significant increase in medical literature on the effect of nutraceutical dietary aliments on general health has been noted.
The aim of this Special Issue is to provide a current and thoughtful perspective on the relationship of diet and natural agents on oral, periodontal diseases, and chewing disorder preventions which may reflect good systemic conditions and related quality of life.
I especially welcome interventional and observational studies aimed at improving the knowledge of the effects of nutraceuticals, natural products, vitamins, and effects of diet changes oral and periodontal diseases and how oral and periodontal treatment improve general health. Review studies including those that use conceptual frameworks for any of the aforementioned topics will also be welcomed.
