Summary Interface oral health science is a major theme for next-generation dental research, based on the concept that healthy oral function is maintained by biological and biomechanical harmony among three systems: oral tissues, parasitic oral microorganisms, and biomaterials. With this perspective, dental caries, periodontal disease, and temporomandibular joint disorders may be regarded as interface disorders that result from a disruption in the intact interface among these systems. Interface oral health not only encompasses the field of dentistry and dental medicine but extends to general medicine, agriculture, biomaterial science, bioengineering, and pharmacology. This book is a compendium of the outstanding pioneering research presented at symposiums held in 2009 by the Tohoku University Graduate School of Dentistry and The Forsyth Institute, In the spirit of a shared purpose, this monograph attests to the Forsyth-Tohoku collaboration and their interdisciplinary approach to dental biomedicine. This publication will accelerate the progress of dental and craniofacial sciences, pointing the way for dental research for future generations. --Book Jacket
