In this book, a panel of experts discuss the molecular biology of micro-organisms involved in the two major dental diseases: caries and periodontal disease. Research has focused on factors which might modulate the interaction between the resident oral bacteria and the host. Chapters deal with the interactions of oral micro-organisms with one another and with the host; the innate defense mechanisms of the host; and the development of vaccines against oral diseases. Topics include oral microbial taxonomy, identification and typing, applied genomics, horizontal gene transfer, cell-cell communication, cariogenic bacteria, aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans, porphyromonas gingivalis, treponema denticola, host-pathogen interaction, host defense mechanisms, and vaccination against oral infections. Essential reading for students and researchers in the field of oral biology and oral microbiology and a recommended book for all microbiology laboratories.Ã²

Particular thanks also go to our families who have put up with so much during the preparation of this book. P. D. Marsh, Salisbury M. V. Martin, Liverpool Preface to the second edition Oral microbiology forms an important part of the curriculum of dental students while the multidisciplinary nature of the research in this area means that studies of the adherence, metabolism and pathogenicity of oral bacteria are equally relevant to microbiologists. The success of the first edition of Oral Microbiology stems in part from the fact that the book satisfies successfully the needs of both of these groups of students as well as those of general dental practitioners, medical students and senior scientists.

Now expanded and in full colour throughout, ORAL MICROBIOLOGY retains its unique ecological approach to the subject which helps the reader determine whether an organism will have a pathogenic or commensal relationship at a given site. In the new edition, greater emphasis is placed on the role of current molecular biology techniques in the understanding of oral microbes. The book also provides insight into current therapeutic and prophylactic antibiotic use, infection control, and the relationships between oral and general health. New authorship also offers additional expertise on viral and fungal pathogens and the role of oral microbes in acute and chronic infections. Successfully describes the complex relationship between the resident oral microflora and the host in health and disease Retains a unique ecological approach to the subject which benefits the reader by providing a clear set of principles to explain the underlying issues that determine whether the microflora will have a beneficial or an adverse relationship with the host at a particular site Published for the first time in full colour, Oral Microbiology has been expanded and completely rewritten with almost 100 brand new illustrations Includes discussion of the latest molecular biology techniques which have revolutionized our knowledge of oral microbes Highlights the biological and clinical significance of the existence of the oral microflora in the form of a biofilm on dental and mucosal surfaces Includes contemporary views on therapeutic and prophylactic antibiotic use, infection control, and the relationships between oral and general health New authorship offers further expertise on viral and fungal pathogens and the role of oral microbes in acute and chronic infections

During your career, you'll encounter a full spectrum of oral conditions - some that are of dental origin and some that are manifestations of problems in other parts of the body. To fully understand where diseases come from, how they're detected, and how they're treated and prevented, rely on Oral Microbiology and Immunology. It considers all of the latest findings as it guides you from general principles and general bacteriology...virology and parasitology, oral health and disease, and applied microbiology and immunology. You'll be better prepared for clinical boards and clinical practice because the 2nd Edition includes all revisions in the nomenclature for oral micro-organisms; the latest OSHA regulations; new information about AIDS, HIV, and hepatitis control; new in vitro diagnostic tests currently on the market or being evaluated; more on T cell subsets, particularly those associated with AIDS; new data on the prevention of dental caries; classification changes for the streptococci; a greater emphasis on oral ecology and disease; and more!

Clinical Oral Microbiology describes the significant models of monomicrobial and polymicrobial mechanisms of pathogenicity to appreciate the multifactorial nature of many infections. This book provides an understanding in the development of the science and practice of clinical oral microbiology. Organized into five parts encompassing 17 chapters, this book begins with an overview of the various types of oral and dental infections. This text then describes the different environmental characteristics of the human mouth, which consists of a complex mixture of microbial species of bacteria, fungi, mycoplasma, and protozoa. Other chapters consider the relative proportions of oral microorganisms in health. This book discusses as well the interplay of the etiological factors in dental caries. The final chapter deals with the transmission of infectious agents among patients and staff within a hospital environment, which is commonly called as cross-infection. This book is a valuable resource for microbiologists, dentists, oral pathologists, clinicians, and practitioners.

Oral Microbiology is a study of microbial diseases of the oral cavity. For the depth and precision of knowledge in this noble field, it can be divided into clinical and practical aspects of microbiology. Oral microbiology denotes the congregation of basic medical sciences and practicing dentistry. The most common oral microbial disease and present ever since the olden days of earth has been documented about dental caries. However, there are many other microbiological diseases that affect the oral cavity. These microbial diseases can cause potential tissue damage; or the majority of the time it leads to compromised oral health; also sometimes it can escort to death. The state of morbidity and mortality factors associated with these microbial diseases leaves an important and special enlightenment of oral microbiology in terms of diagnostic procedures are needed. Since it has no technique of its own, comprehension of this special field has to be drawn and adapted from the disciplines of medical microbiology. The context of bringing this book is an attempt to get an attention towards diagnostic procedure and laboratory techniques that are emphasized over the oral microbiological practice.
