Fundamentals of Oral Histology and Physiology is a landmark new text streamlining the essentials of histology and physiology into one clinically accessible textbook. Written for predoctoral dental students, the book brings together structure, function, and clinical correlations for maximum retention and ease of use. Assuming a background in basic biologic sciences, this text focuses on the histology and physiology that students need to know to practice dentistry and to understand and evaluate the current literature, without repeating basic information learned in other courses. Fundamentals of Oral Histology and Physiology concentrates on Oral Structures and Features, including Development, Teeth, Tooth and Jaw Support, Mucosal Structure and Function, and Effectors. Key Features: Integrates normal histology and physiology enabling students to understand key concepts and their application to clinical practice Brief summaries at key points in the text that highlight significant information and concepts A comprehensive glossary that defines important terms for each chapter Contains high quality photomicrographs, drawings, charts, and tables illustrating fundamental concepts Incorporates clinical correlations for common diseases and conditions Includes case studies in several chapters Comes with access to a companion website that includes student review questions, case scenarios, figures, and tables
Expand your knowledge and put it into practice with this unique, case-based guide Clinical Cases in Orofacial Pain is a valuable resource for undergraduate dental students as well as residents working towards board certification. Individual cases cover temporomandibular joint disorders, masticatory muscle disorders, headache, neuropathic pain, dental pain, tooth wear, and dystonia. Following the popular Clinical Cases series style, cases are presented with associated academic commentary, including background information, diagnostic criteria and fundamental points that might influence the diagnosis, treatment planning or management of the case. Well-illustrated throughout, each chapter features self-assessment study questions to help foster independent learning. Clinical Cases in Orofacial Pain is an excellent primer for undergraduate dental students and an invaluable study guide for postgraduate students and residents. Dental practitioners will also want to keep this unique, case-based guide as a ready reference in their working libraries.

Topics include diagnosis and the ACR classification criteria, epidemiology and pathophysiology, salivary gland dysfunction and xerostomia, salivary gland disease: sialadenitis to lymphoma, extraglandular manifesations, oral complications, management of xerostomia, parotidectomy in Sjögren’s Syndrome, support network for Sjögren’s Syndrome patients, and much more!
Clinical Pain Management takes a practical, interdisciplinary approach to the assessment and management of pain. Concise template chapters serve as a quick reference to physicians, anesthetists and neurologists, as well as other specialists, generalists, and trainees managing pain. Based on the International Association for the Study of Pain’s clinical curriculum on the topic, this reference provides to-the-point best-practice guidance in an easy-to-follow layout including tables, bullets, algorithms and guidelines.
This book presents the neurobiology of orthodontics according to the most recently acquired knowledge on the interaction of the brain activity with the senses. In particular, it highlights the ability of orofacial sensory input to modulate and change the brain activity underlying functions of the stomatognathic system, such as chewing, biting, speech, and occlusal feedback. The approach adopted thereby represents a significant departure from traditional orthodontics, in which malocclusions of the teeth have been interpreted as deriving from DNA coding errors. The described new conceptualization of the etiology and diagnosis of malocclusions has profound implications for orthodontic therapy, as is clearly explained. Orthodontic therapy in turn has significant effects on the brain, which are documented in a chapter devoted to neuroimaging methods. By opening up new and creative pathways in the world of orthodontics, this book will hopefully both educate and excite the practitioner. It is recommended reading for all orthodontists.
Oral Physiology and Occlusion: An International Symposium contains the proceeding of the ""Bite Centennial"" conceived as part of the 1976 Bicentennial Celebration of the College of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey. The symposium aims to provide a broad based review of the ""state of science"" of oral physiology and occlusion. Organized into 13 chapters, this book first discusses the effects of lesions of jaw muscle spindle afferents on mastication and regulation of the incisal biting force in monkeys. Subsequent chapters describe the occlusal forces and mandibular movements; muscle spindles and tooth mechano-receptors in the control of mastication; relationship between integrated EMG and tension in opening of the mandible; and sensory regulation of brain stem motoneurons. Other chapters explain electrophysiological properties of nerve endings in teeth; measurement of the behavioral aspects of pain; mechanisms of oral-facial pain; hemodynamic considerations of oral-facial physiology.
