Essentials of Pediatric Oral Pathology
Pediatric oral pathology deals with the conditions causing or resulting from morbid
anatomic or functional changes in the structures of the mouth in the pediatrics.
Many pediatric patients appear with various intraoral lesions that require accurate
diagnosis, treatment or reassurance, and possible referral for a dental evaluation.
Parents often are concerned with"lumps and bumps"that appear in the mouths of
children.Pediatricians should be able to distinguish the normal clinical appearance
of the intraoral tissues in children from gingivitis, periodontal abnormalities, and
oral lesions. Recognizing early primary tooth mobility or early primary tooth loss is
critical because these dental findings may be indicative of a severe underlying
medical illness. Diagnostic criteria and treatment recommendations are reviewed
for many commonly encountered oral conditions.This book is one of its kind for
practicing dental surgeons,undergraduate as well as post graduate students to get
thorough knowledge about the oral pathologies seen in children as well as precise
treatment modalities to be carried out for maintaining proper oral hygiene of
children. A must read book.
