Now in its Tenth Edition, Permar’s Oral Embryology and Microscopic Anatomy continues to provide comprehensive, yet concise coverage of embryology and histology for dental hygiene and dental assisting professions. It can also be used as an introductory text for dental students. This text begins with the basics of general histology, progresses through the development of the human embryo and fetus, and concludes with a focus on the development of the face and oral cavity. New to this edition are over 40 additional illustrations, including four-color micrographs. High-quality images of microscopic embryonic development and oral anatomy help students identify histologic structures. A new chapter regarding salivary glands includes information about remineralization, demineralization, fluoride, bacterial diseases, and HIV. Clinical aspects of oral tissue are covered to help readers expand their knowledge from basic to clinical sciences and apply fundamental principles. Suggested readings help readers find additional resources.
