Dental anatomy,Physiology, and occlusion

The updated 8th edition of this classic reference provides a visually-oriented presentation of dental macromorphology and evidence-based chronologies of the human dentitions, while reflecting definitive shifts in modern dental practice. New features include an enhanced reader-friendly approach, new color illustrations, and a greater emphasis on clinical applications. A new, interactive CD-ROM offers three-dimensional animations of masticatory movements - including tooth contact relationships and temporomandibular joint movements - that bring the text's illustrations to life. Plus, an interactive mock examination mimics the National Board exam for outstanding review and practice.
  • Essential concepts of occlusion relevant to restorative dentistry are covered.
  • Evidence-based chronologies of the human dentitions provide research standards for tooth development and eruption.
  • Dimensions of teeth from all aspects are considered in relation to space problems and arch size.
  • Discussion of bony supporting structures provides information necessary for oral surgery, periodontics, and dental implants.
  • Detailed descriptions and illustrated morphologic features of usual/unusual teeth essential for learning biologic variation of tooth morphology.
  • Radiographs and pulp chamber and canal morphology in sectioned teeth provide an excellent reference for root canal therapy.
  • Clinically useful chronologies show the age of attainment to avoid damage to developing teeth.
  • Age prediction chronologies can be used to assess the unknown age of a patient.
  • Periodontal therapy is discussed in detail, outlining the relationship of tooth morphology to the periodontium.
  • New lifelike color drawings of the right maxillary and mandibular permanent teeth from the mesial, occlusal, distal, lingual and buccal views are featured in the book and on the CD-ROM.
  • CD-ROM teaches the evaluation of contours of simulated dental restorations in relation to ideal arch form using Quicktime Virtual Reality.
  • An interactive 250 multiple choice question examination on the CD-ROM provides a thorough self-assessment tool.
  • Expanded coverage of the development process of the primary and permanent dentitions related to diagnosing potential space problems and malocclusion.
  • Thorough discussion of the evaluation of temporomandibular joint and muscle disorders including anatomical illustrations of the nerves and muscles of the head and neck region.
  • Appendix of tooth trait categories reviews key information for students.
