Dental Anatomy and Dental Histology
One major objective of a new edition is to update information. The second edition of this book follows the form and principles, established in the earlier edition. But the format of the book including the title is changed as chapters of dental anatomy are included in this new edition. Dental anatomy and histology are taught as a combined subject to undergraduate dental students. So the title 'Essentials of Oral Histology' is changed to 'Essentials of Dental Anatomy and Oral Histology' and it is written in simplified manner for easy assimilation of the students. Along with previous chapters of oral histology, detailed morphology of both deciduous and permanent sets of dentition, development of occlusion, basic method of tooth carving, vasculature and innervations of orofacial regions and maxillary sinus are the new inclusions of this text. This book contains considerable number of colored photographs, original photomicrographs, illustrations, tables and diagrams, believing strongly that anatomical and histological textbooks must present information in a visual format. The text book is written with a view to present the subject to the undergraduate students and it is a humble attempt to fill the niche for the students of dentistry with the current information about the development, structure and function of teeth and associated structures.
