This book provides a concise account of the pathological processes involved in periodontal disease. The first chapter gives a broad overview of periodontal disease and is followed by accounts of the periodontum in health and disease. The book then deals with the micro-organisms implicated in periodontal disease and evaluates their significance. The host responses to factors present in dental plaque are discussed, and an account of the interactions between bacteria and the host which cause tissue damage is included. This leads to a consideration of the different clinical manifestations of the disease, including those associated with HIV infection. In the final chapter, a rational approach to treatment is presented, based on an understanding of the disease mechanisms discussed in the book. This volume will be valuable for dental students and dentists who wish to update their knowledge of this important subject.

'It is well set out with clear introductory titles, simple if plain summarising tables mid-chapter and concise summarising conclusions at the end of each chapter ... if finances are tight, then at least grab a copy from the library ... It is quite possible to read the whole book in an evening.
Now there is a nice thought for those students cramming through the night before their exams.'
Julian Kurer, Dental Practice, June 1993

'It is ... a significant achievement for the authors to have distilled an immense amount of information into a relatively short text that presents the student with a clear account of the basic pathology of periodontal diseases ... the text should be highly recommended to those for whom it was
written, namely, undergraduate and postgraduate students and Fellowship candidates. From this standpoint, the book has the considerable advantage that it can be read effortlessly from 'cover-to-cover'.'
