Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The authors, professors of dentistry at New York City's Mount Sinai, stress in this comprehensive, user-friendly volume that maintaining dental health must be a collaborative effort between dentist and patient. To that end, they provide browsers with sound information about basics: how to select the right toothpaste; the true function of mouthwashes; and the details of advanced treatment (implants, aesthetic dentistry). As well as describing all the tools used by dentists, they explain--without undue grisliness--how these are used to restore or extract teeth. Also discussed: oral anatomy, specific dental disorders, the current state of the dental profession. The writers educate us to become better dental consumers in matters of dental insurance as well as doctors. Particularly helpful are chapters addressing the special needs of people with dentist phobias and first aid for dental emergencies. Illustrations not seen by PW. First serial to Redbook. (Oct.)

The recent revolution in dental technology and treatment has made a visit to the dentist something no one need fear and promises that teeth can last a lifetime. This guide discusses that revolution, presenting a large amount of scientifically sound information in a clear and easy-to-read text. While it does not offer a ``Pollyanna'' view of dental care and disease, it takes a reassuring but factual tone in describing what diseases affect the mouth, how to care for the teeth and gums, and what to expect in the dentist's office. All public and school libraries should buy this volume since nothing comparable is available. (Illustrations not seen.)-- Aletha Kowitz, Bureau of Lib. Svces., American Dental Assn., Chicago
