Permar’s Oral Embryology and Microscopic Anatomy 10th Edition PDF
16.46 MB PDF
This edition of Permar’s Oral Embryology and Microscopic Anatomy is enhanced by the co-authorship of Keith E. Alley. His knowledge of and participation in dental education and research brings fresh insight and expertise to the book.
This book was written for students who have selected Dental Hygiene and Dental Assisting as career goals. Because these students have so much to learn, in so many subjects, presenting them with detailed accounts of complicated physiologic processes would not serve to broaden their education. Instead, it would place them in a maze. With this in mind, the text has been kept simple enough to be understandable and comprehensive enough to be useful.
It is assumed that the student who uses this book has taken a course in biology and has some knowledge of both mammalian anatomy and human tooth morphology. Although it would be helpful, comprehensive instruction in histology or embryology is not necessary.
The subject matter includes an introduction to general histology; the embryologic development of the face and oral cavity; development of teeth and their eruption and, in the case of primary teeth, their shedding; tooth enamel, dentin, cementum, and pulp; periodontal ligament; oral mucosa; gingiva; salivary glands; developmental tooth anomalies; dental caries; and a chapter on the temporomandibular joint.
A vital part of this book is the photomicrographs and illustrations. They help in the interpretation of the written content, which at times may be difficult to follow without visual aids. For further amplification of the material, new color photographs with succinct figure descriptions have been added to the tenth edition. It is anticipated that they will arouse the visual senses and provide vivid views of the tissues.
Students interested in exploring the literature for information in greater depth will find the references at the end of chapters to be helpful. References have been selected from publications usually available to students of dentistry and dental health. The references are by no means exhaustive, and those cited should be considered guideposts for the beginning student who seeks additional information on a particular subject.
