The book titled The ADA Practical Guide to Soft Tissue Oral Disease, Second Edition presents the authors’ experience in the field of oral pathology covering many years of activity in this area.
The authors have been able to identify specific essentials of oral pathology that need to be learned, understood and used by all dentists.
Starting from the positive reception of the first edition by dentists, dental students and dental hygienists as well as the general medical community, the authors provide us with this improved and updated 2nd edition.
The book has three sections and 7 chapters accompanied by a glossary and a template for the over the counter and prescription medications.
Section one, Detection and Documentation, talks about methods of intraoral and extraoral examination of the neck, head and oral mucosa and explains the associated pathology.
Section two, Diagnosis and Management, presents and illustrates common oral soft tissue lesions, differential diagnosis, guidelines for observation and techniques of biopsy and cytology.
The last section, Clinicopathologic Exercises, offers the reader the opportunity to self- evaluate their knowledge by presenting a series of clinical cases with multiple variants of response.
Each chapter is accompanied by a series of questions whose answers are in a separate appendix.
This second edition of The ADA Practical Guide to Soft Tissue Oral Disease covers clinical information on the most important aspects of oral and maxillofacial diseases, being explicit and very well illustrated to provide better understanding and recognition for general dentists, dental specialists, hygienists, graduate and undergraduate dental students.
