Gum Disease: Care & Treatment by Howard Marshall

This book discusses the cause of gum disease and decay, as well as how to prevent it. It is super - current and has all the information currently being used in the most advanced dental and periodontal practices. It will help you navigate through the maze of clinical choices.

This book was written because of the tremendous need worldwide to prevent, arrest, and treat gum disease (periodontal disease). The consequences of non-treatment of chronic dental bone loss are severe. There has now been medical correlation of bacteria from the diseased gum space getting into the circulation and landing on the lining of coronary arteries, causing inflammation and contributing to the development of coronary heart disease. So, it is now critically important to stop gum disease and bone loss before it progresses, causing the above damage.

In addition, because periodontal disease and tooth loss often requires rebuilding parts or all of the mouth, I have included a great deal of information on implants and other methods of mouth reconstruction to further guide you.

About the Author

Dr. Marshall has been in practice for over thirty years. He originally graduated from the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine, followed by a second year of training at Boston University’s Graduate School of Medicine, Department of Stomatology. He then entered the United States Air Force, and served for two years as a captain in the dental services department.

Upon return to the United States, Dr Marshall limited his practice exclusively to Periodontics for 16 years. Subsequently, because of his additional background as a highly trained sculptor and painter, he elected to become expert in cosmetic and restorative dentistry. Today, in addition to his periodontal background, he has over twenty years of experience in restorative and cosmetic dentistry. He has taken well over one hundred postgraduate courses. He has placed over 5000 dental implants. Where necessary, he has rebuilt the bone into which the needed implants were placed. He has also restored the teeth by placing crowns on top of the implants.

Dr. Marshall has not only rebuilt many mouths, but also created beautiful smiles. He has worked in cooperation with other expert dental teams of specialists, or as the periodontal or implant surgeon in conjunction with a restorative dental specialist. He believes very strongly that patients should get total comprehensive treatment planning, and that, where health and budget allow, dentists and patients are best served by state of the art techniques. He also believes in preventing future disease, and in counseling with advanced nutritional information for a patient’s overall health.

Dr. Marshall’s 2 previous dental books for the public were: (1980) “How to Save Your Teeth-The Preventive Approach.” and (2009) “Dental Health & Treatment – Dental Cosmetics & Beauty”.

He has been awarded over 10 patents for his research on a one-visit tooth replacement system, which he hopes to introduce to the marketplace sometime in the next two years.

Dr. Marshall practices in New York City, New York, USA.
