Things to know about Radiographic Imaging in Dentistry
Radiography of the mouth and associated structures can be very frustrating initially. However, once you master this technique, it is possible to produce high quality diagnostic radiographs consistently. Dental radiography is consistently under-utilized in veterinary practice. In many procedures, diagnostic radiographs are essential for the production of a treatment plan and treatment may be contraindicated without them.
Digital radiography is currently available to most practices with their current technology- scanners and/or digital cameras. The advantage of digital images is that they can be manipulated on the computer screen to aid diagnosis by changing density, contrast and magnification. These images can also be easily stored and used for client education, referral opinions or letters, etc. The digital files are easily transferred from computer to computer both by disk and via the Internet.

Microbiological Aspects of Periodontal Diseases
Periodontal diseases are infections of the structures around the teeth. These include the gums, the connecting tissue that covers the root, the periodontal ligament and the alveolar bone. In the earliest stage of periodontal disease, gingivitis, the infection affects only the gums. Later on it can relate to many other types of diseases such as Diabetes and cardiovascular diseases.
Biofilm management and oral microbiology Regular researches and continued expansion of such information in the future will have a great impact on oral microbiology and dentistry as well. Our researchers envision that in the future, empowered with the detailed knowledge of the microbial community ecology within dental plaque, the invention and application of new diagnostic tools, dentistry will be an evidence-based dental practice. Specifically, pathogen-based early detection will become routine, which will allow instantaneous quantification of cariogenic bacteria in plaque or saliva samples.
Research in periodontal research and periodontal therapy: Periodontal therapy is classified in three steps, mainly diagnosis, treatment and maintenance. Treatment of these depends on type and severity of the disease, which will be evaluated by registered dental hygienists. It only takes twenty four hours for plaque that is not removed from your teeth to turn into calculus or plaque (oral biofilm). And that is why, this is most important part of therapy and everyone must build up a good oral hygiene habit.
Our special issue based on oral biofilm and regular Issue "Radiographic digital Imaging in Dentistry"
And keeping this in mind Journal of Oral Hygiene and Health is working on special issue based on “Oral Surgery” and “Oral Biofilm (periodontal diseases)” and invite all quality authors to make submission towards it till March 2016. Submission: firstname.lastname@example.org
