In the overall scheme of things, I am a Johnny-Come-Lately to equine dentistry. In
1993 I bought a small animal and equine practice in Meridian, Idaho. My equine
clientele was somewhat sparse at first, so I could devote plenty of time to my examinations.
I had floated horses’ teeth before, with the traditional long-straight and
long-angled floats. Usually they had dull carbide chip blades on them because I
didn’t know when they were supposed to be changed. Now that I owned my own
clinic, the quality of work I produced mattered more than ever.
This book is written for the general practitioner
in small animal practice. The aim is to supply all
the information required to be able to practice
good dentistry. There is a real opportunity, if not
an absolute need, to improve the practice of
dentistry and oral surgery in general practice.
While the discipline is taught in most veterinary
schools, the time restrictions of the basic
veterinary curriculum generally do not allow
adequate coverage. This book presents
comprehensive and detailed knowledge of how
to prevent, diagnose and treat common dental
diseases in the dog and cat.
Esthetics (also spelled aesthetics) is a subdiscipline
of value theory or axiology, which is a branch of philosophy
that studies sensory values, sometimes called
judgments of sentiment or taste. Esthetics is closely associated
with the philosophy of High Art. Esthetics
includes art as well as the very purpose behind it. Esthetics
as a branch of philosophy studies art, the methods of
evaluating art, and judgments of art. Art has existed
through all recorded human history. Art is unique to
human beings because of our innate ability to abstract.

This study forms part of a longitudinal study (the main
study) on a population consisting of institutionalised peo-
ple aged 52–102 living in the Province of Granada, Spain.
Data was collected from April 2009 to September 2010.
The main study’s inclusion criteria were to have at least
three natural teeth and/or to wear dentures. 369 residents
were examined at baseline. During the 12-month follow-
up period 102 participants were retired from the study, 66
because they died and 36 because of other causes.
Thirty-eight women and men were trained from June 14 to July 2, 2010 in the administration of the RDHS survey instruments, anthropometric measurement, hemoglobin testing, malaria testing, and blood draw for HIV testing. Seven days of fieldwork were followed by one day of interviewer debriefing and examination. Pre-test fieldwork was conducted in 230 households in two rural and two urban villages outside of Kigali. The majority of pretest participants attended the main training and served as field editors and team leaders for the main survey.
It is difficult to overstress the importance of a good history and thorough
clinical examination for every patient. On this the diagnosis is made and
the treatment plan based. A full, clearly written record of the original consultation
is essential to assess progress following treatment. Particularly
is this true if a colleague should be called to see the patient in the practitioner's

Since the publication of the first edition of Forensic Dentistry in 1997 the
discipline of forensic odontology has experienced considerable growth. Like
all forensic specialties, forensic dentistry or forensic odontology has enjoyed
(some may say suffered) a great increase in public interest during this period.
Forensic dentists assist medical examiners, coroners, police, other law
enforcement agencies, and judicial officials to understand the significance
of dental evidence in a variety of criminal and civil case types.
This atlas provides medical, dental and biology students with an outstanding collection of histology images for all of the major tissues and organs. Microscope slides are shown as a series of high-resolution photographs of the same area at successively increasing magnifications to provide a sense of scale and proportion. This is exactly the way students examine specimens through an actual microscope. Each image is labeled with details a student should be able to recognize. Each chapter is prefaced with introductory text.
Numerous surveys have been conducted to investigate the prevalen• ce
of malocclusion. It should be remembered that the figures for a particular
occlusal feature or dental anomaly will depend upon the size and
composition of the group studied (for example age and racial characteristics),
the cnteda used for assessment and the methods used by the
examiners (for example whether radiographs were employed).
This book is designed to explain to dental students the processes of diagnosis and treatment planning, through consideration of clinical cases and problems associated with aspects of all dental specialties. It presents a series of case histories from all the major areas of dentistry, and uses a question-and-answer format to guide readers through the process of examination, differential diagnosis, investigations, diagnosis and treatment. It prepares readers for the wide variety of problems likely to be encountered in clinical practice.
Radiology is an essential component of dental diagnosis. Available
data clearly show that ionizing radiation, if delivered in sufficient
doses, may produce biological damage. However, it is not clear
that radiation in doses required for dental radiography presents
any risk. Neither is it clear that these small doses are free of risk.
The clinical interface of orthodontics and paediatric dentistry is
broad. Increasingly, for the undergraduate, teaching and
examinations in these specialties are combined to promote a
holistic approach to dental care for the child and adolescent patient.
This concise colour guide aims, therefore, to cover major clinical
aspects of orthodontic and paediatric dental practice in a format
suitable for quick reference and revision purposes.
This textbook could not have been produced without the
encouragement and help of many people. We thank our families
for their patience and support throughout the writing,
editing, and production. We were fortunate to have so many
quality colleagues to contribute many chapters in this work.
We hope that covering the many topics by worldwide authors
has given us a chance to present a thorough documentation
of the art and science of Equine Veterinary Dentistry.
We are indebted to the excellence and patience of the editing
