Atlas of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology by In this book 495 full-color photographs are provided in this vivid visual tour of oral pathology. Three well-known experts examine this subject from a pathological and a surgical perspective. They provide coverage of every important oral lesion or condition. Full-color photographs capture the characteristic appearance of each disorder. Abundant photomicrographs depict pathologic entities at the cellular level and clinical-pathologic correlations promote an in-depth understanding of underlying disease processes.
Clinical Review of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery by With cases reflecting the classic presentation format of each disease process, this book prepares students for patient encounters during their oral and maxillofacial surgery rotations. It also helps residents learn and review "high yield" material that is commonly found in oral and maxillofacial training and on board examinations. It highlights clinical information that is commonly asked during rounds, in the operating room, and during examinations. For each case, it includes an overview of the most common clinical presentation, physical exam findings, diagnostic tools, complications, treatment, and a discussion of any controversial issues that may surround the case. The authors describe Clinical Review of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery as "A little reach for the dental student, right on target for the OMS resident, and a strong refresher for OMS board certification." "I found this book expressly informative...I would most definitely recommend this book" Reviewed by British Dental Journal, Dec 2014 Case-based approach incorporates teaching around real patient scenarios to actively engage and raise your interest and retention of the information. 103 cases, many of which are new, represent the full scope of modern oral and maxillofacial surgery practice to encompass the most common and significant implications for modern clinical practice, including content emphasized on OMS boards and training exams. Detailed illustrations including one or more radiographs, full-color clinical photographs, or drawings for the majority of cases provide a visual guide to conditions, techniques, diagnoses, and key concepts that will further enhance your understanding and retention of all content. Content that''s perfect for all levels of study or practice covers both concepts and techniques that residents and pre-doctoral students can apply in the clinical setting, and the preparation tools necessary for oral and maxillofacial surgery boards and training/certification examinations.
