9780721657844: Anatomical Basis of Dentistry

THE ANATOMICAL BASIS OF DENTISTRY, 2/e, is a comprehensive textbook of gross anatomy tailored specifically for undergraduate dental students. Unlike most anatomy books, this text highlights those regions of the head and neck that are of clinical relevance to the dental student. It follows the curriculum of the course in gross anatomy that every dental student must complete. Therefore, chapters dealing with the abdomen, back, and thorax are included. New, expanded coverage of the limbs has leant itself to two brand new chapters: The Upper Limb and The Lower Limb. Correlations are drawn between the basic science of applied anatomy and the clinical practice of dentistry. Applied anatomy is included throughout the book and in a separate chapter to help students retain a clear picture when these structures are encountered later on in their clinical years. The art program has been completely reworked resulting in digitized illustrations of the highest quality, most in a striking two-color format. Also included are 149 pages appearing in full color, emphasizing important concepts and anatomy of the skull and regions of the head.
