Description

Marsh and Martins’ Oral Microbiology continues to offer the essentials of oral microbiology in an easy-to-read, readily digestible format. Commencing with a description of the healthy mouth and the properties of the resident oral microbiota, the new edition of this popular textbook then explores the formation and consequences of plaque development, plaque-mediated disease, orofacial infection, antimicrobial agents and prophylaxis, orofacial fungal and viral infections, and the relationship between oral microbiota and systemic disease. The book is completed by a chapter on infection control.

Each chapter is succinct and includes essential information in a concise format – thereby saving the reader valuable time. The book is presented with an abundance of tables, photographs and artworks to make the subject as engaging as possible – numerous ‘Key Point’ boxes aid retention.

Marsh and Martins’ Oral Microbiology is suitable for undergraduate and postgraduate dental students, research workers, and a wide range of clinical dental professionals.

Key Features

    • Successfully describes the complex relationship between the resident oral microbiota and the host in health and disease
    • Retains a unique ecological approach to the subject which provides a clear set of principles to explain whether the microbiota will have a beneficial or an adverse relationship with the host at a particular site
    • Exploration of the biological and clinical significance of the oral microbiota in the form of a biofilm on dental and mucosal surfaces

 

New Features

  • Completely updated throughout by a new author team!
  • Self-assessment questions in each chapter allow readers to monitor their progress
  • Updated design with ‘Key Points’ throughout aids learning
  • Reflects the impact that the genomic era has had on the field
  • Expanded sections on infection control as well as therapeutic and prophylactic antibiotic use
  • New sections on the benefits of the resident oral microbiota and on current concepts of factors driving dysbiosis in periodontal disease
  • New chapter on the emerging role of oral microorganisms in systemic diseases
