Featured News: BMC Oral Health launches the Digital Dentistry Section

We are excited to announce the launch of a new section in BMC Oral Health entirely dedicated to the world of Digital Dentistry. The new Digital Dentistry section, headed by Dr Francesco Mangano, will accept high quality research articles, clinical studies, technical advances, and case reports.


Featured Article: Pro-inflammatory to the salivary pellet

The inflammatory response to endotoxins is a key factor in the development and progress of periodontal disease, but the molecular mechanisms underlying the pro-inflammatory capacity of salivary fractions are still unclear.  This article examines the pro-inflammatory response of gingival fibroblast to the salivary pellet, mediated via the TLR4–NF-kB pathway.
