Book Description

Be prepared to diagnose and manage any condition you encounter in your practice! This bestselling reference gives you direct access to a complete range of full-color clinical images and patient radiographs that illustrate the differentiating characteristics of lesions in the oral and maxillofacial region. Significantly revised and updated content throughout this edition brings you the latest information on the etiology, clinical features, histopathology, treatment, and prognosis of each disease entity, as well as cutting-edge topics such as bisphosphonate osteonecrosis, the oral complications associated with methamphetamine abuse, solitary fibrous tumors, gene mutation, and plasminogen deficiency.
  • Over 1,300 clinical photos and radiographs, most in full color, facilitate identification and classification of lesions.
  • Current concepts of pathogenesis and disease management help you understand the diseases that affect the oral and maxillofacial structures, formulate an accurate diagnosis, and institute proper treatment.
  • Each chapter is logically organized by body system or disease group, enabling you to easily identify a specific condition.
  • A comprehensive appendix of differential diagnosis among oral and maxillofacial disease processes helps you rule out invalid diagnoses.
  • The bibliography divided by topic presented at the end of each chapter enables you to pursue supplemental literature.
  • Highly accomplished authors and contributors with a broad range of clinical and classroom teaching experience provide well-balanced coverage of the entire subject.
  • Chapter outlines at the beginning of each chapter allow immediate access to specific topics.
  • Over 200 new illustrations have been added to this popular, visual reference.
  • A new section on bisphosphonate-associated osteonecrosis thoroughly explores and illustrates this recently identified complication resulting from medications used to prevent bone loss in patients with multiple myeloma, metastatic tumors, and osteoporosis.
  • A new section about the oral complications of methamphetamine abuse details characteristic oral manifestations such as “meth mouth caries” and factitial injuries.
  • Expanded coverage of oral piercings, intraoral tattoos, and other body modifications includes unusual entities such as tongue splitting and charm needles.
  • A new section on transient lingual papillitis sheds light on this common cause of transitory tongue irritation.
  • A new section on solitary fibrous tumors familiarizes you with this popular designation for certain benign fibrous neoplasms.
  • A new section on hypoplasminogenemia (ligneous conjunctivitis), or plasminogen deficiency, includes images from a patient case that illustrate the characteristic gingival lesions associated with this rare but fascinating systemic condition.
  • A new section on hereditary mucoepithelial dysplasia describes the characteristic oral manifestations that can lead you to accurately diagnose this condition, potentially preventing a woman with this disorder from having cytologically unusual cells misdiagnosed as carcinoma on her cervical PAP smears.
  • A new section discusses the clinical and microscopic features of chronic ulcerative stomatitis, an immune-mediated condition of the oral mucosa that presents with erosive lesions and is often mistaken for lichen planus.
  • The chapter on Forensic Dentistry has been thoroughly revised and updated by leading forensic odontology author, Dr. Edward Herschaft, to include the latest information on this fascinating topic.
  • Several chapters have been updated to include the most current knowledge of specific gene mutations associated with hereditary oral disorders.

2.0 out of 5 stars Ordered Kindle Version September 28, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book is great, I am not going to lie. It has a lot of information and offers a great Ddx page in the index that can help out any dentist. The book is clear in its definitions of the diseases, treatment and what to look for radiographically, histologically and clinically. I give it two stars because the publisher doesn't have the kindle version edited to be in page number form like some other kindle books do. This is necessary for a book of this type in order to flip back and forth from index to disease. Please, this is an electronic copy, I should be able to click on the chapters, click on the disease and have it take me straight there. I shouldn't have to hunt it down. And don't bother searching for the terms. It will link you even to the reference pages and you will have to hunt down search by search to get what you want. Stick with the paper copy. And what is the purpose of zooming in on the photo if it just blurs it anyway? Lazy, lazy kindle transfer.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good when there are few options March 11, 2013
By Joyce
The sad part is, there just aren't any other books to compete with this one, so it is considered great but really because there is nothing to compare it to. I think it's actually a pretty frustrating book focused very much on histology and not much on clinical use for the practicing dentist. I constantly have to look up further information online because I just don't think it does an adequate job of explaining relevant information. The index in the back for quick reference to oral pathology is a great idea but I think lacking in substance. It would be nice if this section did a better job of listing descriptions about lesions as a quick reference.

I've just noticed that I get very frustrated with this book, maybe it has to do with it being associated with dental school- but I just feel like when I'm trying to research a disease I'd rather look online. And the index seems to be lacking common oral findings so it sends me down the wrong path, when I see something clinically in a patient.

"Neville and Damm", as it is affectionately called, is one the best (if not the best) all around textbook in oral pathology available. This latest edition contains numerous updates in this ever expanding field and is probably owned by every oral pathologist, as well as many MD/DO pathologists, and is included in many dental school oral pathology curricula. Although oral pathologists typically study and source more advanced texts for certain complicated cases, they always have this handy. I would recommend this textbook to dental students, dental residents, any residents of pathology, and any clinicians typically dealing with oral and maxillofacial disease. The collection of clinical pictures, recommended treatments, and the differential diagnoses in the appendix, combined with the detailed writings contained therein, make this an excellent textbook.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very helpful reference April 12, 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
In dental school there are books you buy to pass the class, and books you plan on using after you graduate. I have a feeling this book will end up serving both purposes. I've spent a fair amount of time reading this text for the several path courses we've taken so far, and I am glad I will have this reference when I am practicing.

This seems like a very comprehensive path book. It has excellent clinical photos, although it would always be nice to see a couple more pictures in path books to see other presentations of a lesion. The text is well written and informative.

I have no experience with other pathology books, but this book is comprehensive enough that I don't anticipate a need to. I'd recommend this book to students and clinicians. Hope this review was helpful. Let me know if you have any questions.

I have the 1995 version of Neville, Damm, Allen & Bouquot - a great resource.
After chatting with Carl Allen and having him as a CE presenter for a week several years ago, opened my eyes to a lot of oral path that was obscure or unknown to me.
This digital version is handy and supremely up to date with great COLOR photos.
I believe that there will be a new version out next year and frankly, I am looking forward to updating my current digital version when it is available.
Thanks to the authors and their publishers for a clinical reference that helps me to help my patients.
