Keywords: Astronautical, Zero gravity, Microgravity, Dentistry


The Human body reacts differently in different environment(s). With development in the field of astronomy, long distance trip to another planet is now possible. These trips require humans to stay in zero gravity conditions for a long time. Simulated microgravity is the best way to assess the physiologic changes in near zero gravity conditions, as it is not always possible to conduct scientific experiments in space. The purpose of this review is to determine the effects of zero gravity on oral cavity.
