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.
periodontal disease research is predominately focused on bacterial infections. In fact, genetics factor is a critical issue.
Global disease causing deaths in developed and developing countries. Its early identification is a need in dental clinics by dental practitioners. This enables dentist to refer a patient to the specialist care and hence managing the disease condition effectively.
The infection control protocols regarding dental care in the portable unit setting (specifically schools) are vague. There seem to be two acceptable protocols - double wipe disinfection or disinfection plus barriers. I find no studies regarding specifics - does double-wipe remove adequately the microorganisms around the air-water syringe buttons? On suction levers?
2.genetic geriatrics. Due to gene defect/weakness, organs aging at different speed. Proper quantitative diagnoses and management of such defect/weakness can be preventive,... more »
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.
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.
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.
Hypothesis: ACEs scores and/or social determinants of health can predict the incidence of TMJ/TMD over the lifespan.
Test genetic mutants in saliva to understand saliva's role in oral tissue regeneration or prevention of oral cancer.
Choropleth mapping should be introduced in the field of dentistry. These thematic maps can be used to cover all oral disease in a country and will give a idea of which territories should be focused on for particular oral disease and appropriate preventive measures can be planned.
