Overview

Organized for consistency, coherence, and readability, this fully updated text covers all areas of prevention in dental care. PRIMARY PREVENTIVE DENTISTRY, 8/e first describes dental diseases and conditions, helping students clearly understand the processes that can be prevented through the use of preventive modalities or ideas. Next, it presents detailed strategies to prevent these diseases and conditions. Throughout, specific target populations are defined and described based upon scientifically valid preventive strategies aimed at their needs. This edition improves student understanding with more photos, illustrations, diagrams, and tables; highlights “fun facts” about the topic; adds a new chapter on the important influence culture plays in preventive dental care; and is supported by many new web-based review questions and case studies for each chapter.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Ihab Hanna
This updated edition (last edition 1995) offers the most recent research studies, clinical applications, and guidelines for oral disease prevention. There is broad coverage of oral health promotion among all populations, including early childhood, schools, geriatric, compromised patients, and hospital settings. The editors' objectives, which are met in the book, are to provide oral health providers the basic knowledge about the biology, pathophysiology, methods of prevention, and better understanding of the management of the geriatric population, compromised patients, and patients in a hospital setting. This book is written for students, residents, and all practitioners, with no duplication or omission of material. The large number of contributors from international teaching institutions reflects the rich contribution from throughout the world and represents credible authorities in the field. This book covers the importance and methods of application of primary preventive dentistry with emphasis on nutrition, risk factors assessment, and patient motivation not only for patients in dental offices or schools, but also in nursing homes, hospitals, and for those who are compromised. A short epilogue on Ethics of Prevention has been added to this edition. These areas are covered in a user friendly format with objectives, introduction, and a summary with each chapter. This book offers basic knowledge for students about the special care population as well management issues for post-graduate residents and an update of changes in primary preventive dentistry for specialists.
