Overview

Originally published as a series of 13 papers in Dental Update, this book is a concise guide to what the dental team needs to know about conditions affecting the mouth, including ulcers, lumps, lesions, orofacial pain, and halitosis. Expert, clinically relevant discussions give dentists the ability to spot suspicious and possibly malignant lesions in the mouth, care for patients with systemic problems or oral side effects from drugs, and avoid potential medicolegal consequences that could result from a lack of knowledge in these areas.

  • Concise, practical guidance on oral disease focuses on what the dental practitioner and dental team need to know in order to provide satisfactory "shared care" for their patients in partnership with medical professionals.
  • Important descriptions of pathology alert dentists to likely oral effects of systemic disease in their patients, as well as oral effects of medically prescribed drugs.
  • Guidelines for referral point out cases when referring a patient to a medical practitioner or specialist is warranted.
  • High-quality color photographs and images throughout illustrate important concepts and conditions.
  • Succinct tables and bullet points make information easy to read and absorb quickly.
