This abstract aims to highlight the current challenges faced in the field of oral medicine and surgery and explore potential future directions for advancements. The integration of advanced imaging techniques, such as cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) and molecular diagnostics holds promise for improving diagnostic accuracy and facilitating early intervention. The impact of systemic diseases on oral health is also discussed in the abstract. Conditions such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and autoimmune disorders can significantly affect oral health and require tailored treatment approaches.
