Odontology is one of the best open access journals that aims to publish the most complete and reliable source of information on discoveries and current developments in the mode of original articles, review articles, case reports, short communications, etc. in this field and provide online access without any restrictions or subscriptions to researchers worldwide.
Journal of Odontology is a peer-reviewed journal that aims to publish research dealing with the scientific study of the structure and diseases of teeth such as tooth decay, periodontitis, dental plaque, dental calculus, dentin hypersensitivity, malocclusion etc.
On behalf of the Journal of Odontology, as Editor-in-Chief, it is my distinct honour and privilege to inform you that, our Journal running in 3rd volume. it is my great pleasure and honour to welcome you to the Journal of Odontology .
Periodontitis is caused by certain bacteria (known as periodontal bacteria) and by the local inflammation triggered by those bacteria. Although these periodontal bacteria are naturally present in the mouth, they are only harmful when the conditions are right for them to increase dramatically in numbers. This happens when a layer of bacteria and food debris, known as plaque, builds up and is left undisturbed on the teeth, commonly in hard-to-reach areas such as between the teeth.
The more dangerous bacteria are able to thrive and multiply, producing some harmful by-products which stimulate the body’s defensive inflammatory response in the gums. As the disease progresses, chronic inflammation causes the bone of the jaw to be destroyed and the teeth to be lost. In many people, this is a gradual process that takes place over many years and, if detected and treated, can be halted. However, some young adults have a very active form of the disease which causes early loosening and loss of the teeth.
The basic elements of a good oral hygiene regime are:Cleaning the chewing surfaces and sides of the teeth twice daily, with a toothbrush (of an appropriate size and in good condition) and toothpaste.Cleaning the spaces between the teeth where the toothbrush bristles cannot reach, using either dental floss or an interdental brush, depending on the size of the space. This should be done once daily.
The research areas related to Odontology are divided as types of steroids such as Oral Steroids etc. Dental Diseases, Restorative Dentistry, Endodontics, Orthodontics, Dental Implants, Prosthodontics, Periodontics, Forensic Dentistry, Digital Dentistry etc. Journal of Odontology is a spotlight on dental diseases, fractured teeth, exposed root, worn tooth enamel or fillings, oral cavities etc. Journal of Odontology welcomes the submission of manuscripts that meet the general criteria of significance and scientific excellence. Papers will be published approximately 15 days after acceptance.
The scientists, professors, research scholars can publish their high quality papers for worldwide viability on our online platform. Manuscripts can be submitted through Editorial tracking system. https://www.longdom.org/submissions/odontology.html
