Call for submissions for a Special Issue of Dental and Medical Problems on "Relationship between cardiovascular diseases and oral health"
Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are the leading cause of death in developed countries. They are determined by numerous factors, like genetic predisposition, unhealthy dietary patterns, the lack of physical activity, obesity, and smoking. Furthermore, lipid metabolism, oxidative stress, endothelial dysfunction, and inflammation, including periodontal disease, have been associated with the development of CVDs as well. Therefore, oral diseases have been proposed as risk factors for CVDs. Poor oral hygiene increases the risk of a bacterial infection in the blood stream, which can result in endocarditis. Diabetes is also a well-known, strong risk factor, and there is evidence that patients with diabetes benefit from periodontal treatment. Recently, sleep disorders manifested in the oral cavity have also been associated with the CVD risk. Summarizing, the oral status is especially important for cardiovascular health.
Therefore, we warmly invite researchers to our new Special Issue entitled “Relationship between cardiovascular diseases and oral health”. We are waiting for relevant articles until December 31, 2022. Authors submitting their manuscripts for this Special Issue are asked to follow the regular Dental and Medical Problems online manuscript submission procedure.
Call for submissions for a Special Issue of Dental and Medical Problems on "COVID-19 as a new global health challenge for dental and general practitioners"
We would like to draw your attention to a Special Issue of Dental and Medical Problems entitled "COVID-19 as a new global health challenge for dental and general practitioners". We are seeking for high-quality original papers and reviews to be published in our interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed, open-access journal covering all aspects of oral health and related fields of modern medicine.
Since December 2019, the COVID-19 pandemic has spread over the world with unprecedented consequences for the health of millions of people. SARS‑CoV‑2 has dramatically disrupted everyday life, global economy and health service. Providing most routine dental services needed to be suspended for a few months all over the world. This Special Issue aims to present research and reviews in the field of oral sciences regarding the medical and psychological implications of the COVID‑19 pandemic, including the diagnosis, symptomatology, treatment, and epidemiology of COVID-19 as well as the indirect consequences of the pandemic, e.g., its effect on health policy, academic teaching of medicine and dentistry, etc. All manuscripts related to the wide range of COVID-19 research are welcome.
We are waiting for relevant articles until December 31, 2022. Authors submitting their manuscripts for this Special Issue are asked to follow the regular Dental and Medical Problems online submission procedure.
