Dental health is often neglected by a vast majority of population. In the developing countries like India the prevalence of dental carries is very high particularly among the children and teenagers. The occurrence is even higher in rural people and among school children. The nonappearance of practice of healthy habits often leads to this type of problem. Dental caries is not only a medical problem but many sociodemographic factors are said to be related with this.
High-impact journals are those considered to be highly influential in their respective fields. The impact factor of journal provides quantitative assessment tool for grading, evaluating, sorting and comparing journals of similar kind. It reflects the average number of citations to recent articles published in science and social science journals in a particular year or period, and is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. It is first devised by Eugene Garfield, the founder of the Institute for Scientific Information. The impact factor of a journal is evaluated by dividing the number of current year citations to the source items published in that journal during the previous two years.
