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. ...

Editorial Review

Product Description
Presented for laymen, clerics, and the scientific community, anunprecedented (or actually quite "shocking") approach to Truth isdeveloped whereby a reconciliation is attempted between ancient WisdomKnowledge and modern empirical science. This has become possible becauseof such breakthroughs in today's quantum and astrophysical research thatthe paradigms of science are leaning from exoteric to esoteric. A uniqueadded factor is that new Wisdom revelations have occurred in thepast century and a half, which are added to the overall matrix oftranscendent Knowledge. The method thus becomes one of comparingexoteric and esoteric cosmologies, resulting in what may be startling(or at least provocative) new concepts for the far fringeastrophysicists today who are thrusting beyond string theory to astaggering "multiverse" epiphany. All of which justifies the theme ofPart II, On the Nature and Purpose of the Universe:" In all ofour probing and theorizing and attempts to find the ArchetypeUnification, are we in effect trying to re-invent the wheel when theAnswer has been with us all along?"

For the layman and cleric alike, thecarefully graded extension of conceptuality through the text has thepossibility of expanding consciousness to the point where faith andbelief are exchanged for seeing and knowing..... ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Extemporaneous riff
My mother-in-law has false teeth. Full set of choppers. Lost them all before she was 20. In the US.

Just saying.

No one, not even her husband of half a century, has seen her without the teeth in. She gave birth with teeth in!

Just saying. I shouldn't make sport. I don't devote much time to dental hygeine beyond brushing once or twice a day. Floss, feh! I'll end up with store-boughts eventually, too, I guess. (But I'll take 'em out to scare door-to-door pests!)

3-0 out of 5 stars Good Intro, Short On Details
This book tells you what to look out for during examination and diagnosis and how to make use of study casts for treatment planning. I find the chapters on bone grafting to be especially helpful.

However, there are 2 problems. As expected in this sunrise industry, the implant systems featured in the book are already quite outdated. I can't imagine myself using an external hex anymore. Restoration nowadays is also a lot less complicated with a wider range of abutments and other accessories.

Secondly, the surgical techniques are almost never explained in detail. Perhaps an interactive handson course would be better able to impart that, but if you're a newbie, don't expect to learn much about surgical procedures. A bit disappointing for me when I first bought it, given the size and price of the book.

5-0 out of 5 stars What Every Young Dentist Should Know And Not Be Afraid to Ask
This comprehensive dental implant textbook is a must for the dentist who wants to be well informed on the intricacies of placing and restoring dental implants.

From case selection to surgical technique and prosthetic applications, this book is not only informative, but should be reviewed regularly.Even maintenance and hygiene protocols are addressed in wonderful detail.

The young dental student coming out of their program needs to comprehend many techniques not completely taught in dental school.Dental implants have proven to be a viable alternative to conventional dental treatment and need to be understood well to discuss with potential patients.

Dr. Babbush has done a wonderful job going through the physiology and technical aspects of modern dental therapy.

I pd for this book over a month ago and have not rec'd it. In all the yers I've ordered books from Amazon this is a first, very disappointed as this was one of my grandsons B'day presents.

5-0 out of 5 stars Review from www.firrkids.com
Authors and publishers are so clever these days about finding great new ways to get kids interested in reading. Talk about making a book truly interactive! This one comes with two pairs of 3-D glasses neatly tucked in a pocket on the inside cover. Don't lose them - you'll need these wild glasses to make the animals leap right off the pages.

Phantograms are a form of an optical illusion. The illusion of depth is produced with a combination of two images that appear smudged (or as this book calls it, "a blurry mess") to the naked eye. Once you don the special specs however, the color filtering power of the glasses makes the image appear to be three dimensional! To kids, this bit of science translates to be really, really cool.

Not just a barrage of fancy photos, this book is also chock full of valuable information for exactly twenty-eight types of pets. A full page of information is provided on each animal, including instructions on how to care for that pet, habits, temperaments and helpful hints. You actually get a sense of what it would be like to own each animal - before you really do own that animal.

Of course, the big hook here is the 3D glasses and really neat rise-from-the-pages animals. But this is also a great resource when your family just isn't sure which pet would be the best fit for your household. Thinking about getting a potbellied pig? Maybe you didn't know that they are easy to train and can be taught lots of fun tricks. Or is a leopard gecko more your speed? Be careful not to grab that little guy by the tail, as it will break right off. Read about those animals, plus Guinea pigs, ferrets, frogs, parrots, tarantulas and more.

Overall, this is a wonderful book on household animals that will capture (and hold) the attention of children of many ages. Great photography, a neat use of science and just plain useful information will get your kids immersed in learning as much as they can about these animals. Just don't lose the glasses! ...
