The Handbook of Oral Diseases for Medical Practice, part of the Oxford Clinical Practice Series, is a comprehensive handbook for medical students, medical practitioners and other healthcare providers. The handbook has contributions from several international experts and adopts symptom- and disease-oriented approaches. It covers a wide range of topics, such as orofacial pain syndromes, common tooth- and gum-related diseases, oral mucosal white patches, blisters, ulcers, wart-like lesions and soft tissue lumps and swellings, dental trauma, oral soft and hard tissue infections, jaw cysts, tumours and tumour-like lesions, oral health in pregnancy, oral manifestations of systemic diseases including HIV/AIDS, dental sleep medicine and potentially malignant and life-threatening malignant oral lesions. The book is supplemented with more than 150 clinical images. It is designed in a bulleted format for a quick and easy reference, and each clinical condition is organised into definition, cause, clinical features, diagnoses and management.
