Handbook of Pediatric Dentistry

The new edition of this internationally recognised volume offers comprehensive guidance to the successful management of the child in the clinical dental setting.

Prepared by authors of international renown, the Handbook of Pediatric Dentistry takes the reader far beyond the technical skills that are needed to treat disorders of the childhood dentition and instead delivers a whole philosophy of integrative patient care.
Richly illustrated and in full colour throughout, the Handbook of Pediatric Dentistry is written in a friendly ‘how to’ manner and contains useful ‘pull out’ boxes to act as useful aide-mémoires. Exploring a variety of topics, the book includes discussion of child development, practical communication skills and advice on how to deal with behavioural problems. Clinical topics include the management of caries, fluoridation, restorative dentistry, pulp therapy, trauma management, oral medicine and pathology, dental anomalies, and the treatment of medically compromised children. Chapters also explore the use of orthodontics, the management of cleft lip and palate and speech, language and swallowing.

The Handbook of Paediatric Dentistry has become an essential chairside and bedside companion for all practitioners caring for children and is suitable for undergraduate dental students, general dental practitioners, specialist paediatric dentists, orthodontists and paediatricians.
