Hypothesis: ACEs scores and/or social determinants of health can predict the incidence of TMJ/TMD over the lifespan.
Precision prevention, treatment, and public health interventions will be available to all people based on their unique variations in genetic, biological, behavioral, and social determinants of health. Individual and population-based dental, oral, and craniofacial prevention and treatment strategies will be scientifically-based and validated.
View submitted ideas on what it will take to reach this goal.
Craniofacial birth defects prevention and sensible approaches to designing preventative therapies is rarely afforded the attention it deserves. The potential for prevention is too often drowned out by the noise surrounding stem cells, re-programming and tissue engineering. Each of these approaches has merit in their own right, but equal attention should be given to prevention.
In general, there is very little emphasis on basic research. The effort on finding new genes and pathways regulating normal development and physiology is key to precision medicine. It is unclear how the goal of Precision Health will be developed, if such knowledge does not exist and does not get expanded.
Mercury is considered as a useful material in restorative dentistry. However, concern about the adverse effects of its disposal on the environment as a results of using it in health education environments has caused some countries to ban or reduce its use.
we introduced a method and its procedures, invented a mercury recycling device, and evaluated our proposed method.
Develop effective methods to prevent periodontal diseases – need to determine what the 22nd century preventive model will be. This would impact the entire education system as well.
Telehealth and / or collaborative practice model of assessment and prevention that includes dentists and hygienists and crosses disciplines.
Efficacy of preventive interventions across the lifespan including oral health behaviors.
Assemble, catalog, create database to incorporate medicinal facts and biological functions of every western and TRADITIONAL medicine, biological and chemical agent that has been used in treating dental and craniofacial diseases. In addition, repositories should be created to store them and that can also be used as the immediate resource for dentists and dental researchers.
