Essentials of Oral Histology and Embryology, 5th Edition
A strong foundation in oral biology prepares your students to treat dental pathologiesprovide optimal oral health care! Essentials of Oral Histology and Embryology: A Clinical Approach, 5th Edition uses a patient-centered approach in covering presenting basic science for dental professionals. Coverage includes the anatomy of oral and facial tissues as well as orofacial development. In addition to the stages of tooth development, it covers eruption and shedding of teeth plus the parts of teeth – including enamel, dentin, dental pulp, and cementum. Using this text, dental hygienists and dentistsstudents will gain the knowledge they need to succeed in the classroom and in clinical practice.
