The Aging and Dental Medicine section of Frontiers in Dental Medicine publishes high-quality applied and clinical/translational research across the field of aging. Age and aging are clear modulators of an array of oral health features and are a critical component of oral-systemic health and the field of dental medicine. This section will focus on addressing crucial questions regarding the impact of chronological age and the process of aging on biological attributes of the oral cavity tissues and interactions with biomaterials. This multi-disciplinary area will solicit significant advances in this broad research area, including, but not limited to:
- Age effects on major oral diseases, eg. caries, periodontal disease(s), cancer
- General health effects of aging impact on the oral cavity
- Age effects on dental biomaterials
- Biological basis for aging modulation of host-bacterial interactions
- Age effects on tissue regeneration
- Age effects on dental therapeutic strategies and outcomes
Published studies must promote novel findings that influence our understanding of the interplay between age and health/diseases in the oral cavity. This section will focus primarily on preclinical models and clinical/translational studies of aging and operates in close collaboration with our sister journal, Frontiers in Oral Health, targeting fundamental and basic sciences discoveries of oral health and aging.
