Abstract

The vegetarians form one-fifth of the global population. The vegetarians are a peculiar group of people; existing body of scientific evidence shows that they are a highly vulnerable group of people when it comes to oral diseases. The oral health of vegetarians is a critical aspect of dentistry; however, current evidence—based on PubMed database search—shows a dearth of literature on this thematic area. This research area has been neglected in the field of stomatological research.
