Stomatology in Dentistry


On behalf of the Journal of oral hygiene and Health the editor of Journal of oral hygiene and Health is overwhelmed by the response and eagerness of the academic and research contributors to publish with the journal and take part in the year-long celebrations.

Journal of oral hygiene and Health is the practice of keeping one's mouth clean and free of disease and other problems (e.g. bad breath) by regular brushing of the teeth (dental hygiene) and cleaning between the teeth.

Stomatology is the study of the structure, function and diseases of the oral cavity. In some countries, the term is interchangeable with the discipline of dentistry called oral medicine. While oral medicine is not a recognized dental specialty in the United States, stomatologists fill an important role in training dentists and treating various health problems that affect the mouth and teeth.

What is Stomatology?

Stomatology overlaps with several of the recognized ADA specialties (such as orthodontics and dental public health) as well several other disciplines that include oral facial pain and chronic pain. Oral medicine and stomatology training in dental school is often centred on nonsurgical management of oral manifestations of systemic diseases, oral mucosal lesions, and other oral conditions not associated with the teeth. Oral pathology is another related field, which comes into play during tasks such as reading a biopsy specimen.

Oral pathologists also treat patients for oral symptoms of diseases that are not related to tooth decay or gum diseases. But stomatology and oral pathology differ in focus. Oral pathology centres on diagnosing and treating diseases, while stomatology includes treatment of structural and non-disease issues. Stomatology is also not a term you are likely to see on an office door in the United States, and it shares only some features with the similar discipline of oral medicine.

The Future of Stomatology

The future will most likely see the discipline of oral medicine become a recognized ADA specialty. According to a study published by the journal Oral Surgery, Oral Medicine, Oral Pathology, Oral Radiology, the practice of stomatology on an international level will expand as certain population’s age and more chronic health issues require a multi-disciplinary approach. Physicians, dentists and other health care providers will work together to improve the quality of life of patients suffering from chronic conditions.

The Journal is successfully running in the 8th Volume which covers a wide variety of Researchers of Oral Hygiene and Dental Health discipline are encouraged to publish innovative ideas in the international platform and peer reviewed journal of oral care and hygiene with good Impact factor. Oral hygiene, oral cancer, and oral surgery are some of the most evolving sectors of dental sciences, which still need more findings and communication.
