Summary:This is the first edition of a unique textbook dedicated solely to pathologies relating to the dental hard tissues. A total of 456 pages are filled with high quality radiographs and photographs that allow the reader to easily visualise the conditions discussed. The book is heavily evidence-based with thousands of references made to an array of highly regarded scientific journals. -- The book is divided into four sections. Section one, 'Developmental anomalies', covers anomalies in tooth number, morphology and size, and developmental anomalies of enamel and dentine. -- Section two, 'Anomalies of eruption', revises tooth eruption on a microbiological level and summarises the commonly occurring variations in eruption of the deciduous and permanent dentition. This chapter then goes on to discuss causes of abnormal eruption of the dentition and the appropriate management of these conditions. -- Section three, 'Post-eruptive hard tissue physiological changes and pathological conditions', is the most extensive section encompassing common dental pathologies and their management including caries, erosion, tooth resorption, common pathologies of the ageing dentition and finally, dental trauma and tooth discolouration. Aetiology and management of these conditions are discussed at length. Particularly impressive is the text referring to the management of traumatic dental injuries and tooth resorption. These sections deliver evidence-based guidance (including guidance from the Royal College of Surgeons of England), and describes operative techniques for clinical management of traumatic dental injuries in superb detail so that these can be followed easily from the text. -- The final section entitled 'Syndromes' discusses common syndromes associated with dental anomalies and is divided into autosomal dominant syndromes, autosomal recessive syndromes, X-linked syndromes and chromosomal syndromes....
