Now expanded and in full colour throughout, Oral Microbiology retains its unique ecological approach to the subject which helps the reader determine whether an organism will have a pathogenic or commensal relationship at a given site.
In the new edition, greater emphasis is placed on the role of current molecular biology techniques in the understanding of oral microbes. The book also provides insight into current therapeutic and prophylactic antibiotic use, infection control, and the relationships between oral and general health. New authorship also offers additional expertise on viral and fungal pathogens and the role of oral microbes in acute and chronic infections.
Oral Microbiology provides a comprehensive coverage of the subject which will be essential to those with a specific interest in dentistry as well as those with a more general interest in host-microbe interactions and in microbial ecology. The book is suitable for undergraduate and postgraduate dental students, research workers, and a wide range of clinical dental professionals.
