2014 Impact Factor:1.23*
|The aim of this journal is to disseminate knowledge and to promote discussion through the publication of peer-reviewed, high quality, scientific papers and other material on all topics relating to oral health and the dental management.|
|Scholars belonging to Dental and Oral Health discipline are encouraged to publish innovative ideas in oral health open access journals. The focus of this section broadly covers pediatric dentistry, community dentistry, geriatric dentistry, orthodontics, oral pathology, TMJ disorders, implantology, cariology, periodontology, epidemiology, oral hygiene, aesthetic dentistry, prosthodontics, oral and maxillofacial radiology. Quick publication and open discussion possible by rapid peer review will enhance the clarity and information dissemination of a specific topic. The rapid and editorial bias free publishing system will aid the readers to access quality papers in oral health impact factor journals and disseminate knowledge for the betterment of the scientific society.|
|The journal is using Editorial Manager for quality peer-review process. Editorial Manager is an online manuscript submission, review and tracking systems. Review processing is performed by the editorial board members of Oral Health and Dental Management or outside experts; at least two independent reviewers approval followed by editor approval is required for acceptance of any manuscript. Authors may submit manuscripts and track their progress through the system, hopefully to publication. Reviewers can download manuscripts and submit their opinions to the editor. Editors can manage the whole submission/review/revise/publish process|
Authors are encouraged to submit papers based on new findings from original data collection or new analyses of existing data. However, systematic reviews, other critical analyses and reports will be considered for publication.

Oral Health is the practice of keeping mouth and teeth clean in order to avoid all the dental problems which arise due to not maintaining proper oral hygiene. In conditions like gingivitis, periodontitis, and dental trauma, such as subluxation, oral cysts, maintaining good oral practice is must.
Oral Medicine is the specialty of dentistry concerned with the oral health care of medically compromised patients and with the diagnosis and non-surgical management of medically-related disorders or conditions affecting the oral and maxillofacial region.
Oral pathology, as the name suggests it deals with the study, management and treatment of diseases of mouth, jaws, salivary glands, tempomandibular joints, facial muscles and the skin surrounding mouth.
Synonyms: stomatognathic disease, dental disease, mouth disease.
The removal of a tooth from the socket in the bone is called tooth extraction. Tooth extraction is done when a tooth is damaged to an extent which cannot be repaired by filling or capping.
Oral hygiene is the practice of keeping mouth and teeth clean in order to avoid all the dental problems which arise due to not maintaining proper oral hygiene. In conditions like gingivitis, periodontitis, and dental trauma, such as subluxation, oral cysts, maintaining good oral practice is must.
Dental bridges are used to fill the gap caused by the missing teeth. They are usually crowns for the teeth (abutment teeth) on either side of the gap. False tooth are placed between the abutment teeth.
Dental trauma related to the trauma or injury to the teeth and/or periodontium, may be gums, periodontal ligament, alveolar bone and nearby soft tissues including lips and tongue. The study of these injuries is dealt in Dental traumatology.
Preventive Dentistry is the practice of keeping healthy mouth. This practice helps to avoid gum disease, cavities, plagues, tooth loss. Preventive dentistry can be practiced in the form of daily brushing and annual dental cleanings. These practices are designed to ensure that teeth are clean, strong, and white.
Restorative dentistry is the study, practice and treatment of diseases of the teeth in order to bring it back to its original healthy state. A dental speciality which comes under restorative dentistry is endodontics, periodontics and prosthodontics.
Implant dentistry is the speciality of dentistry in which Dental implants are surgically fixed substitutes for roots of missing teeth. There are two types of dental implants-Endosteal and Subperiosteal. Dental implants should be considered as an option for replacing failing or missing teeth.
Orthodontist is a dentist who is specialized in straightening the teeth which are out of shape and improper bites. They are also specialized in adjusting the misaligned jaws. The study of this alignment of teeth and jaws is dealt in orthodontics. It deals with diagnosis, prevention and re-alignment of teeth and jaws i.e., dentists for braces.
Periodontist is a dentist who is specialized treating diseases including supporting and investing structures of the teeth including alveolar bone, cementum, gums and periodontium. It also deals with diseases and conditions which affect the supporting structures/teeth. Periodontics also deals with the dental implants and peri-implantitis.
Endodontics is a dental speciality which deals with the dental pulp. Root canal therapy is one of the common procedures followed in endodontic treatments. Also includes treatment of cracked teeth and dental trauma. Endodontic treatment is done to save the teeth from diseased dental pulp
Dental caries are the tooth decay or cavities due to breakdown of teeth as a result of bacterial activity. The colour of the infected teeth varies from yellow to black. Upon ignorance at initial stage, may lead to inflammation of tissue around the teeth, tooth loss and abscesses formation.
Pediatric dentistry (Pedodontics or Paedodontics) is a branch of dentistry which deals with the dental and oral health management and treatment of children from birth to adolescence. The Pediatric dentists aid in maintenance and promotion of dental health of children.
Dental anaesthesiology is the speciality in dentistry dealing with management of pain by the use of local and general anesthetics. Dental anesthesiologist is responsible for reducing or blocking the pain discomfort caused during dental procedures (treatment/surgery).
There is a vast demand of the dental materials among the medical products from the past decade. The analytical data and results of these products during their post-market research can be recorded as articles in Oral Health & Dental management.
The handling and management of all the equipments related to dental science are updated from time to time because of technological development. Several techniques are automated nowadays which can be controlled by the use of various softwares.
*Unofficial 2014 Impact Factor was established by dividing the number of articles published in 2012 and 2013 with the number of times they are cited in 2014 based on Google search and the Scholar Citation Index database. If ‘X’ is the total number of articles published in 2012 and 2013, and ‘Y’ is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed journals during 2014 than, impact factor = Y/X
