Bowker Data Service Summary
Now expanded and in full colour throughout, this book retains its unique ecological approach to the subject which helps the reader determine whether an organism will have a pathogenic or commensal relationship at a given site.
Main Description
Now expanded and in full colour throughout, Oral Microbiology retains its unique ecological approach to the subject which helps the reader determine whether an organism will have a pathogenic or commensal relationship at a given site. In the new edition, greater emphasis is placed on the role of current molecular biology techniques in the understanding of oral microbes. The book also provides insight into current therapeutic and prophylactic antibiotic use, infection control, and the relationships between oral and general health. New authorship also offers additional expertise on viral and fungal pathogens and the role of oral microbes in acute and chronic infections. Oral Microbiology provides a comprehensive coverage of the subject which will be essential to those with a specific interest in dentistry as well as those with a more general interest in host-microbe interactions and in microbial ecology. The book is suitable for undergraduate and postgraduate dental students, research workers, and a wide range of clinical dental professionals. Successfully describes the complex relationship between the resident oral microflora and the host in health and disease Retains a unique ecological approach to the subject which benefits the reader by providing a clear set of principles to explain the underlying issues that determine whether the microflora will have a beneficial or an adverse relationship with the host at a particular site Published for the first time in full colour, Oral Microbiology has been expanded and completely rewritten with almost 100 brand new illustrations Includes discussion of the latest molecular biology techniques which have revolutionized our knowledge of oral microbes Highlights the biological and clinical significance of the existence of the oral microflora in the form of a biofilm on dental and mucosal surfaces Includes contemporary views on therapeutic and prophylactic antibiotic use, infection control, and the relationships between oral and general health New authorship offers further expertise on viral and fungal pathogens and the role of oral microbes in acute and chronic infections

Main Description
The aim of Oral Microbiology is to describe the complex relationship between the resident oral microflora and the host in health and disease. This latest edition, which has been completely rewritten and enlarged, retains and extends its philosophy of explaining this relationship in ecological terms. This approach is of benefit to the reader by providing a clear set of principles to explain the underlying issues that determine whether the microflora will have a beneficial or an adverse relationship with the host at a particular site. This information provides a foundation that can be exploited by research workers or health professionals to understand, prevent or control disease.
