Development, Function and Evolution of Teeth by Mark W. J. Ferguson (Editor); Moya Meredith Smith (Editor); Mark F. Teaford (Editor)In this field there has been an explosion of information generated by scientific research. One of the beneficiaries of this has been the study of morphology, where new techniques and analyses have led to insights into a wide range of topics. Advances in genetics, histology, microstructure, biomechanics and morphometrics have allowed researchers to view teeth from alternative perspectives. However, there has been little communication between researchers in the different fields of dental research. This book brings together overviews on a wide range of dental topics linking genes, molecules and developmental mechanisms within an evolutionary framework. Written by the leading experts in the field, this book will stimulate co-operative research in fields as diverse as paleontology, molecular biology, developmental biology and functional morphology.

Dental Anatomy Coloring Book by Margaret J. Fehrenbach (Editor)DENTAL ANATOMY COLORING BOOK helps you learn different structures and tests your knowledge of anatomy in a unique coloring book format. Numbered leader lines clearly identify the structures to be colored and correspond to a numbered list appearing below the illustration and make it easy to see the dental anatomy. You can also create your own "color code" by coloring in the boxed number that appears on the illustration and using the same color to fill in the corresponding numbered box on the list below. A comprehensive focus on dental anatomy covers all the structures of head and neck anatomy and the basic body systems that are essential to the practice of dentistry, with varying views of structures, including differing orientations and levels of detail. An easy-to-follow organization begins with an overview of body systems and then breaks down dental anatomy in the following chapters, providing information in small chunks and providing a clear picture of interrelationships. 220 detailed anatomical illustrations, including corresponding labels, make both coloring and identification easy. Perforated pages allow for easy removal so that you can study pages while on the go or submit them to your instructors. NEW! Review questions are included with each illustration - 10 fill-in-the-blank questions based on the content in two related titles: Illustrated Dental Embryology, Histology, and Anatomy and Illustrated Anatomy of the Head and Neck. NEW! Additional illustrations are included, as well as more alternative views of structures of the head and neck. NEW!
