Product Description:
Dental Caries is a major new work on a subject of vital concern to all dentists. It builds on the work of two former books, Textbook of Clinical Cariology and Fluoride in Dentistry, to present a definitive resource on caries prevention and treatment. The management of dental caries is central to daily work in dental offices because caries is ubiquitous in all populations, lesion development continues lifelong and caries is the most common cause of tooth loss around the world.

The book's logical structure consists of four parts, covering: The Disease; Diagnosis; Prevention, Non-Operative and Operative Treatment and Prognosis. It provides a clear understanding of the disease process, be it at an individual or population level. The Editors are joined by 28 expert authors who have contributed a wealth of chapters, ranging from the role of fluorides to restoring the tooth. Careful balance between prophylaxis and surgical intervention guides the reader through the maze of treatment decisions, while the breadth of the book reflects diverse, and sometimes controversial, opinion on dental caries.

Dental Caries is aimed at dental students and practitioners, and will be of value to dental hygienists and those involved with public health. Faculty and practice libraries will also wish to feature this authoritative book on their shelves.

5.0 out of 5 stars.  very comprehensive collection of various aspects of dental caries, October 22, 2015
This tome is an impressive discussion of all aspects of dental caries. Unfortunately it does not discuss silver nitrate as a possible option in management. Still, anyone seriously interested in the academic aspects of "cavities" should try to have access to the data. Thanks to Ole Fejerskov!
