Overview

"According to federal government estimates, employed adults lose more than 164 million hours of work every year due to oral health problems and dental visits. Having unhealthy teeth and gums can leave patients feeling insecure or ashamed about missing, cracked, chipped, crooked, or stained smiles. Cosmetic dental concerns, however, are not the only issue. Recent research has uncovered surprising links between poor oral health and an Increased risk of heart disease, diabetes, and other health complications. Fortunately, research also suggests that many dental problems can be prevented with daily hygiene and preventive care checkups." Dental Care and Oral Health Sourcebook, Third Edition provides updated information about the structure of the mouth and teeth, age-related oral health concerns, and the link between poor oral health and systemic disease. It describes some of the most common dental concerns, such as plaque, cavities, tooth pain, cracked teeth, and gum disease, and it discusses oral and maxillofacial surgery, endodontic and root canal treatments, and orthodontic and cosmetic procedures. Jaw and mouth disorders and other health conditions that impact oral care arc also addressed, and the book concludes with a glossary of related terms and a directory of additional resources.
