Main Description
This comprehensive text offers an authoritative account of general medicine as it applies to the practice of dentistry. Established as the standard reference on the relevance of medical conditions to dentistry, this book is essential for students learning for the first time or practitioners brushing up on their knowledge. In this 5th edition, the content has been completely updated and the appearance has been completely transformed, making it brighter and better than ever.
Main Description
An understanding of a wide range of medical problems was already vital in the provision of oral health care when the first edition of this book was published more than 15 years ago. Since that time the population in the developed world has aged, new diseases have contributed to an increasing cohort of persons with significant health problems who now survive longer, and some dental procedures, such as dental implants, have been introduced into clinical practice.
Bowker Data Service Summary
