Synopsis This text is a study of the function of the
mouth and associated structures, providing students with a basis for
treatment of of a broad scope of orofacial and dental disorders.
Initial chapters detail the physiology of the sensory systems of the
mouth. The physiological details of these functions are then
expanded in the following chapters, whilst later chapters address
mechanisms that are involved in the secretion of saliva, chewing and
swallowing. The book concludes with a chapter on language and speech
production. All aspects of oral physiology are presented in an
organized manner that allows the student to build on the knowledge
of the previous chapters.
The books available on this site are suitable for college study - college textbooks on physiology
that can be purchased here rather than at your college bookstore. Buy all of your textbooks
at America's Dental Bookstore. Or, practicing dentists can buy these books and textbooks to further their knowledge of
whatever area of dentistry interests them.
