Biology of the Periodontal Connective Tissues

Editorial Reviews
From Book News, Inc.
A reference combining fundamentals of molecular and cellular biology with basic information about the composition of extracellular matrices. This body of information is then applied to normal and diseased connective tissues of the periodontium and to clinical problems. Subjects include inflammation and wound healing, structure and regulation of collagens, developmental aspects of the periodontium, and connective tissue elements as diagnostic markers for gingival crevicular fluid. Includes color and b&w photos, and two- color diagrams. For residents, graduate students, and researchers. Book News, Inc.®, Portland, OR
