Fundamentals of Oral Anatomy, Physiology and Histology,
Edition 1
By Bharath Dr Rao K

Publication Date: 13 May 2019

Master the basics of Dental Histology, Anatomy, Embryology and Physiology.

Fundamentals of Oral Anatomy, Physiology and Histology comprises of four units: Oral Histology, Oral Anatomy, General Embryology and Oral Physiology sections elaborating essential concepts in altogether 38 chapters. Oral Histology emphasizes on the morphology and variation of teeth as a part of dental anatomy. The dental histology section describes the development of teeth and associated tissues including enamel, dentin, pulp, cementum and periodontal ligament.

Salivary glands, oral mucosa, maxillary sinus, temporomandibular joint and tissue preparation comprise the rest of the second unit, Oral Anatomy. The third unit of Embryology explains the development of the oral and paraoral structures with details of general embryology from fertilization onwards. Physiology is the fourth unit which constitutes important topics related to year one of dentistry that include mastication, chewing cycle, saliva and calcium phosphorous metabolism.
