Periodontal disease affects the mouths of the entire adult population to some degree and causes severe disease in 10 per cent. This is a concise account of the pathological processes involved in periodontal disease, its causes and progression, based on advances in contemporary research. Arational approach to treatment is presented on the basis of these processes. A broad overview of periodontal disease is followed by accounts of the periodontium in health and disease. The book then deals with the micro-organisms implicated in periodontal disease and evaluates their significance. Thehost responses to factors present in dental plaque are discussed, followed by an account of the interactions between bacteria and the host which cause tissue damage. This leads to a consideration of the different clinical manifestations of the disease, including those associated with HIV infection.In the final chapter, a rational approach to treatment is presented, based on an understanding of the disease mechanisms discussed in the book. The biologically-orientated approach is particularly suitable for dental undergraduates, and those preparing for the Fellowship Examinations of the Royal Colleges. It will be also be valuable for every practising dentist who wishes to update their knowledge of this important and developing subject.No other book deals with the aetiology and pathogenesis of periodontal disease in such a comprehensive, yet straightforward way, making extensive use of diagrams and summary tables to make the subject more easily accessible.

Drugs, Diseases, and the Periodontium

Periodontal disease is caused by bacterial plaque and is the most frequent reason for tooth loss in adults. It is now well-recognized that certain systemic diseases can affect the response of the periodontal tissues to plaque. Furthermore, certain types of systemic drug therapy can have an adverse effect on the gingival tissues, whereas other drugs with antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory actions may be beneficial to the periodontal tissues. All of these problems are encountered in dental practice, especially those specializing in periodontology. The aim of this book is to document and discuss the effect of various systemic factors and drugs on the periodontal tissues and their response to plaque. This book is aimed at the periodontologist or dental practitioner with a specialty in periodontology. The book is also a useful reference for postgraduate students.

Paleopathology of Children

Identification of Pathological Conditions in the Human Skeletal Remains of Non-Adults

Publisher: Academic Press

ISBN: 0124104398

Category: Medical

Page: 300

View: 1467

Palaeopathology of Children: Identification of Pathological Conditions in the Human Skeletal Remains of Non-Adults provides archaeological examples of pathological child remains with varying degrees of disease manifestation, and where possible, presents illustrations of individually affected bones to help with identification. The structure and inclusion of photographs and summary diagnostic tables make this suitable for use as a textbook. Each chapter includes a table of international archaeological cases collated by the author from published and unpublished literature. Child skeletal remains come in a variety of different sizes, with bones appearing and fusing at different times during growth. Identifying pathology in such unfamiliar bones can be a challenge, and we often rely on photographs of clinical radiographs or intact anatomical specimens to try and interpret the lesions we see in archaeological material. These are usually the most extreme examples of the disease, and do not account for the wide degree of variation we may see in skeletal remains. Provides a comprehensive review of the types of pathological conditions identified in non-adult skeletal remains Contains chapters that tackle a particular disease classification Features for each condition are described and illustrated to aid in the identification
