Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In the context of a globally maintained or even increased incidence of oral diseases, alternatives that improve upon the classical methods for addressing oral pathology are emerging.

Modern research directions involve the use of natural bioactive extracts with antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antiviral, antitumoral and immunostimulatory effects and other therapeutic properties in the management of a variety of pathologies. Additionally, nanotechnology and the use of bio-nanomaterials for the treatment of oral diseases, especially oral cancer, are becoming attractive method tools for prevention and therapy.

This Special Issue will be dedicated to new advances in the use of antioxidants.

Subjects that will be discussed in this Special Issue will focus on the potential beneficial effects of new/various vegetal extracts with emphasis on their antioxidant properties as well as on optimized biotechnologies for incorporating natural compounds in different delivery forms, including bio-nanomaterials, to improve their bioavailability and therapeutic effects on oral pathology.

All original articles, clinical studies, case reports, case series, and review articles are welcome for submission.
