Abstract

Detailed information about the size of the oral mucosa is scarce in the literature, and those studies that do exist do not take into account the size of the tongue or the enlargement of the surface by the papillae. Because of the various functions of the oral mucosa in the maintenance of oral health, knowledge of its true size may provide a better understanding of the physiology of the oral cavity and some oral diseases and direct future therapeutic strategies. The aim of this study was to determine the total size of the oral mucosa.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 12 March 2013.
All research outputs
#4,606,339
of 6,228,985 outputs
Outputs from Head & Face Medicine
#95
of 184 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#66,012
of 98,427 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Head & Face Medicine
#4
of 6 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 6,228,985 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 15th percentile – i.e., 15% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 184 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 1.6. This one is in the 7th percentile – i.e., 7% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 98,427 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 18th percentile – i.e., 18% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 6 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than 2 of them.
