Special Issue "Nutrition and Oral Health"
A special issue of Nutrients (ISSN 2072-6643).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 September 2016).
The mouth is the pathway to the rest of the body. As such, any problems in the oral cavity can have serious effects on systemic health and well-being. Both nutritional and dietary factors play significant roles in the integrity of the oral cavity. For example, diet is the initiating factor in dental caries and nutritional status is an important supportive factor in periodontal health. The oral condition, in turn, can affect food choices and subsequent nutritional status. Thus, nutrition plays important roles in the maintenance and support of oral health, the etiology or progression of oral disease, and the management of oral conditions.
This Special Issue will provide an overview of the current state of the science in these areas, as well as providing clinical guidelines for the assessment and management of nutritional concerns in dental patients.
Prof. Dr. Carole A. Palmer
