Description

Advances in Oral Biology, Volume 2, aims to facilitate communication between dental scientists by providing critical surveys of the state of knowledge in selected areas of biology that bear upon growth, development, and maintenance of normal function of oral tissues on the one hand, and on the other, departures from this norm that eventually become recognized as disease. The value of this broad approach is well illustrated by the contributions appearing in this first volume, wherein the authors show the extent to which a multidisciplined approach has led to the acquisition of new information about the structure, chemical composition, and function of oral tissues.
The book contains six chapters and begins with a discussion of dentinal sensation. This is followed by separate chapters on the biochemistry, physiology, pathology, and pharmacology of plasma kinins and their relationship to oral physiology and dental medicine; refinement of foods in relation to dental caries; and the role of stress in the caries process. Subsequent chapters deal with solid-fluid interactions between oral fluid and tooth structures; and fluid dynamic mechanisms which regulate tooth movement.
