Scully’s Oral and Maxillofacial Medicine: The Basis of Diagnosis and Treatment, 4th Edition
The new edition of this award-winning book offers a systemised and objective approach to clinical diagnosis and contemporary non-surgical management of the most common disorders seen in oral medicine. It places a strong emphasis on practical issues such as history taking, examination and differential diagnosis, when clinical investigations are indicated, and how to identify and describe oral lesions.
Fully updated with six new chapters and new photographs and artworks, Oral and Maxillofacial Medicine 4e presents a straightforward, accessible but practical guide to the successful diagnosis and treatment of the most common and potentially serious disorders seen in oral medicine clinical practice. Maintaining a strong patient-centred approach throughout, the book also explores relevant systemic disorders and includes an updated but shortened recommended reading list. This clearly written book places a strong emphasis on practical issues and is beautifully illustrated with liberal use of tables, algorithms and clinical photographs.
Senior dental students, dental practitioners and trainees and practitioners in oral medicine, surgery and pathology in particular, will find this book to be both an excellent source of reference and a thoroughly practical guide for clinical diagnosis and contemporary non-surgical management of conditions affecting the oral and maxillofacial region.
The expert authors have completely revised and updated the content, making this an excellent reference source as well as a thoroughly practical guide.
