Oral health is of big importance for well-being and general health. A few novel drug delivery systems were designed for oral treatment and prophylaxis of different diseases in the oral cavity. This work focused on the latest drug delivery development of the most common oral pathologies, namely, periodontitis, oral mucosal infections, dental caries and oral cancer. Herein we reveal the synthesis, characterization and application of chitosan nanoparticles for intracellular transport of the weakly cell-penetrating amoxicillin and clavulanic acid in order to improve their efficacy on bacterial infections.
