Looking into your mouth is like looking under the hood of your car. Both are dark and mysterious places. Unfortunately, unlike your car, your mouth does not come with a guide to operation and repair. Written for those who hope to understand the mouth and how to keep it healthy, this book can serve as an owner's manual.

From its outline of the anatomy of the mouth to its discussions of contemporary dental research and technology, this book offers insight into the processes that determine dental health. It details daily oral hygiene and maintenance aimed at reducing the occurrence of common oral maladies. Also explained is the dentist's role in prevention and treatment, as well as the costs of dental care.

Virtually all persons are affected by dental diseases of some sort. Many dental problems, especially bad breath, gum disease, and cavities, are almost entirely preventable. Whether it is for bleeding gums, cavities, crooked teeth, impacted wisdom teeth, stains, a host of other problems, or just a periodic checkup, nearly everyone will spend time and money at the dentist's office. This book will be a find for all who want to know about appropriate oral care for themselves or their families.

Dr. Francis G. Serio, a diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology, is professor and chairman of the Department of Periodontics and Preventive Sciences at the University of Mississippi School of Dentistry. He received the President's Volunteer Action Award in 1991 from George HW Bush for his work in the Dominican Republic and, in 1995, helped establish the first dental implantology program in Vietnam.
