The International Association for Dental, Oral, and Craniofacial Research (IADR) and American Association for Dental, Oral, and Craniofacial Research (AADOCR) have announced the publication of a Special Issue of the Journal of Dental Research (JDR) entitled, Aging and Oral Health. The issue features Bei Wu, New York University, USA and Ana Paula Vieira Colombo, Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil as guest editors.

The JDR special issue, Aging and Oral Health, covers numerous topics related to new advances in the biological mechanisms underpinning ageing and the role of oral health in age-related conditions such as cognitive decline. It also explores novel ideas for improving oral health care in the population as a means for promoting general health in older people.

“As the population of elderly people across the globe grows, so does the critical importance of providing the best possible oral health care to them,” JDR editor-in-chief Nicholas Jakubovics said. 

“The role that oral health plays in the wellbeing of this vulnerable demographic cannot be overstated, and the JDR is fortunate to have such high-quality papers included in the Special Issue.”
