This richly-illustrated book brings today's dental hygienists and dental hygiene educators the most comprehensive coverage of contemporary periodontology. Increasingly, the dental hygienist is being called upon for a much broader range of patient-care activities, both diagnostic and therapeutic. This new book will keep today's hygienist up-to-date, and prepare tomorrow's hygienist for ever greater responsibilities. In addition, this atlas also provides complete coverage of intraoral pathologic lesions, including those attendant to HIV/AIDS, medication side effects, occlusal disharmonies, and genetically-based disorders.
