2-0 out of 5 stars some sections are good, other are........
I have always liked the lexi-comp pharma texts. This dental text has some nice review sections with great graphics and charts. Then is has some sections with hand-drawn diagrams. That is totally unacceptable. I was able to do an internet search and find better diagrams in a few seconds. Seem like the authors decided to save a few bucks......That is bad considering that this is not a cheap text.

5-0 out of 5 stars good basic info for beginning dentist
This book is high yield and covers a broad range of topics.I took the first ADEX exam and used this book as a primary source to study for the 6.5 hr written test (which I easily passed).
Information presented does not go into great depth, but then again that's what makes this such a good reference guide.If you are a dental student and forgot what the furcation classes signify you can find it in less than a minute.If you are a new doctor and don't know how much lidocaine to administer a 40 lb patient you can find that very quickly too.
In summery a great reference for quick high yield facts.Wish I had it in dental school during clinic time.

3-0 out of 5 stars better suited for study material.
this is a book for more of prep for an exam. It doesn't give much of clinical help to an active clinician although things are organized in a concise manner.
It'd help as a study guide for a license exam since it covers all major field of dentistry. Periodontal chapter is probably lacking the most of clinical information. ( Again, it's not much of clinical reference but if I have to choose out of all the chapters.. ) ... Read more

It is a book that can keep us familiar with current knowledge and let us far away getting risk of litigation.It can give us a continuous education on oral health.

5-0 out of 5 stars The best back-up you could ask for..
A well organised, comprehensive, relevant text perfect for senior dental students and young dentists.Patient with complex medical history?This book will explain exactly what is relevant to you for each item in their history.If you're pushed for time you can just cut to the dental aspects section for each condition, but there's plenty of detail on the general and medical aspects if you have time and want to actually understand what's happening in the rest of your patient's body, or just impress your tutors.Buy it.

After reading many books regarding the medical aspect of dentistry, I can honestly say that this book by Scully and Cawson is the best I've read and the best I've enjoyed reading. It covers all aspects and most importantly, it relates back to its dental implications very well. Very well laid out, very simple and concise and very very informative. An excellent book. ...

Product Description

Now in full color, The Anatomical Basis of Dentistry helps you master the essentials of gross anatomy! Complete, accurate coverage highlights the regions of the head and neck that are of clinical relevance. Core information provides a foundation of knowledge essential to providing a successful chairside experience for both you and the patient. Using a clear, accessible style, with practical Clinical Notes boxes, this book closely relates the basic science of applied anatomy to the clinical practice of dentistry.

  • A focus on core information specifically highlights the regions of the head and neck along with the abdomen and thorax, serving as a foundation for the other basic sciences and for subsequent clinical courses.

  • Coverage of applied anatomy draws correlations between the basic science of anatomy and clinical practice of dentistry.

  • General Concepts chapter includes anatomical terminology and provides a general description of each body system in preparation for the regional anatomy topics that follow.

  • A regional approach reflects the order in which the regions are commonly taught, by showing structures representing several systems -- which parallels the manner in which structures are encountered in patients.

  • Full-color cadaver dissection photos clearly depict the location of anatomic structures, showing anatomical details impossible to view in clinical examination.

  • Chapters on limbs provide a more complete picture of the body, covering areas that may be possible sites for intravenous and intramuscular injections.

  • Applied Anatomy chapter relates anatomy to the clinical practice of dentistry, covering topics such as the anatomy of local anesthesia, imaging (including intraoral, extraoral, and MRI), fractures of the face, and the spread of dental infection.

  • Clinical Notes boxes relate basic science concepts to actual scenarios that may be encountered in clinical practice.

  • Review questions in multiple-choice format help you assess your understanding and provide good preparation for the NBDE.

  • Full-color photos and drawings clearly demonstrate core concepts and reinforce important principles.

  • New information on the back enhances your understanding of body systems with coverage of the surface features of the back, movements of the spine, and a new Clinical Notes box on back strain.

  • New information on the neck includes the movements of the head and neck, and a new table detailing the muscles responsible for those movements.

  • Added coverage of applied anatomy includes a new section with illustrations of Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT), a new section on Alveolar Ridge Tomography, and more images of the TMJ.

  • An Evolve website includes a 300-question test bank and image collection for instructors and a self-assessment exam for students.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good but not great
The text in the book is fantastic, but the pictures aren't as good. I really wish that the graphic artist who worked on this book would have spent more time trying to achieve a realistic representation of anatomical form. This book is great when you supplement its pictures with another atlas like McMinn's.

3-0 out of 5 stars The Anatomical Basis of Dentistry
This book is good, not great, but good.It has lots of great information and very clear shematic diagrams with a focus on the head and neck.It's a good reference for any dental student to have.This book is NOT an anatomy altas and shouldn't be used as one, it is primarily a text, and it's a nice complement to your atlas.
However, the book has a couple of flaws.The book is organized in such a way that makes it very difficult to find the info that you are looking for.There's lots of great info in the book, it's just tough to find sometimes.Also, I don't feel that it gives the reader a good feeling of the 3D arrangement of structures.The book is also lacking some of the details you will need to know in dental school.There were also quite a few factual conflicts between this book and the information presented in my anatomy lectures.I don't know which was actually correct - the book or the professor.
Overall I'm glad I had this book as a reference in dental school.

5-0 out of 5 stars read it?
Our head and neck class required us to get this book and we never even read it...I figure I will keep it for my own reference as anatomy is my favorite subject.

3-0 out of 5 stars Gross Anatomy text for dentists by a dentist
This text is useful in the teaching of gross anatomy to dental students, since it was written by a dentist who teaches anatomy to dental students.It is not a "complete" text; i.e., it does not go into much depth in parts of the body not directly related to dentistry.Not to say that it isn't good or accurate, just that if you want an in-depth text covering the entire body, there are better texts out there.But if you want a good text geared toward the dental student, this one works fine

4-0 out of 5 stars Wait for the next addition...
While this book is a great help to undergraduate dental students, it does fall short in the incredibly specific structural identifications dental gross anatomy classes call for.However, I have seen the next addition which should be coming out soon and it is greatly improved-especially when it comes to bones (and specific structures) of the head.So buy it now if you are taking a gross anatomy course....but if you can afford to wait, then buy it later when the next addition is available. ...

If you have no experience in the field of dentistry, but you want a biological or chemical background to the subject, this is the book to get.Other books were too advanced for my level of knowledge (undergrad interested in dentistry); however, this book is structured like a general biology textbook (very comprehensive and understandable).I strongly recommend this book if you are interested in dentistry, the science behind dentistry, prepping for dentistry school, or if you merely want to know your dentist's lingo.

Overall a good text book. The text is clear on most topics and easy to read with good diagrams and many pictures.
Each chapter starts with chapter outline that guides the reader through the book and makes it more organized. It covers topics such as structure of the teeth (e.g. Enamel, pulp-dentin complex, cementum), Cariology (The lesion, etiology, prevention and control), Bio-materials (e.g. glass-ionomers, composites, liners & bases, sealants, dental cements), Fundamentals in tooth preparation (e.g. class I,II,III,IV,V,VI restorations), Instruments and equipments for tooth preparation, Composite restorations (e.g. tooth preparations, clinical techniques), Amalgam and Metal restorations and a lot more. However not much details on materials of inlay/onlay restorations. The quality of the book is good and the price tag is reasonable.

    Wow, great book. Step by step instructions on how to run a children's dental practice that doesn't rely too much on drugs.

    There's scripts on how to talk to kids and parents.

    There's a description of a painless injection technique.

    And I get the feeling that the author is a very good pediatric dentist who really cares. He claims a 1% general anaesthetic rate which he worked on after years of traditional management techniques.

    I can't recommend this book enough.Even if you're great with kids already he has an interesting philosphy to check out.

    Pediatric Dentistry: A Clinical Approach follows a logical approach, covering major dental and oral diseases and their diagnosis and management in children and adolescents, including caries, periodontal and endodontic conditions, and TMJ disorders. The book also discusses a number of dental and oral conditions that relate more directly to childhood, such as dental erosion, traumatic injuries to the teeth, pain control, and treatment of physically and mentally disabled children. Topics such as dental, physical, intellectual and emotional development are also thoroughly reviewed.

    Pediatric Dentistry will provide students of dentistry, as well as pediatric dentists and dentists involved in the treatment of young patients, with a uniquely clear, comprehensive, and clinical approach to the dental treatment of children and adolescents. ... Read more

    This text was required for a course I am taking in Veterinary Denistry taught by the author himself.The text is very informative.The only suggestion I would make is having some of the photos in color for better clarity.

    Product Description
    For those on both sides of the dreaded dentist's chair, James Wynbrandt has written a witty, colorful, and richly informative history of the art and science of dentistry.To all of those dental patients whose whine rises in tandem with that of the drill, take note: You would do well to stifle your terror and instead offer thanks to Apollonia, the patron saint of toothache sufferers, that you face only fleeting discomfort rather than the disfiguring distress, or slow agonizing death oft meted out by dental-care providers of the past.The transition from yesterday's ignorance, misapprehension, and superstition to the enlightened and nerve-deadened protocols of today has been a long, slow, and very painful process.For example, did you know that: *Among the toothache remedies favored by Pierre Fauchard, the father of dentistry, was rinsing the mouth liberally with one's own urine.*George Washington never had wooden teeth.However, his chronic dental problems may have impacted the outcome of the American Revolution. *Soldiers in the Civil War needed at least two opposing front teeth to rip open powder envelopes.Some men called up for induction had their front teeth extracted to avoid service. *Teeth were harvested from as many as fifty thousand corpses after the Battle of Waterloo, a huge crop later used for dentures and transplants that became known as "Waterloo Teeth." ...
