Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to invite you to contribute to this Special Issue entitled "Oral Diseases: Diagnosis and Therapy".

The diagnostic process is often long and challenging to coordinate, and must include multidisciplinary collaboration between dentists, general practitioners, pathologists, and surgeons.

Several non-invasive imaging techniques have recently been applied to the oral cavity. These techniques can provide additional information during clinical examination to shorten the duration of biopsy and guide it by selectively identifying and targeting only highly suspicious lesions at their most representative sites.

Moreover, clinical efforts and scientific research are increasingly pursuing the development of new assistive tools and minimally invasive techniques for novel therapeutic approaches. Photodynamic concepts have emerged as a considerable area of development for diagnostic and therapeutic clinical applications.

This Special Issue aims to collect high-quality original research articles, reviews, case series, and case reports on diagnosing and treating oral diseases.

We look forward to receiving your contributions.

Prof. Dr. Alberta Lucchese
Dr. Dario Di Stasio
