Oral Medicine is a vast subject as it encompasses different spheres of dental and medical sciences. This subject bridges the gap between medical science and dentistry. A comprehensive and successful dental treatment planning depends greatly on the awareness of general medical status of the patient as well as on the sound knowledge of various diseases either locally present or having a systemic background. A thorough knowledge of normal oral structures, normal variations, and pathologic changes is essential in the day-to-day practice. Textbook of Oral Medicine is a comprehensive textbook that covers the clinical examination, pathology, investigation, and therapy of oral diseases and the oral manifestations of systemic diseases. This book seeks to answer the requirements of the syllabi of various Indian universities as well as universities from abroad. It has been written by keeping the needs of the undergraduate and postgraduate students in mind. Compared to the second edition, the third edition has been thoroughly rewritten and all the latest information has been provided so that the book is up-to-date in all respects. More clinical photographs have been added so that the students will be able to appreciate the clinical picture of the oral diseases. Newer and scientifically accepted classifications have been used in the book. At the same time, unnecessary details regarding various studies and researches are avoided for the ease of understanding the subject. This book will be useful for the undergraduate and postgraduate students as well as for general dental practitioners and physicians who have an interest in the diseases of the oral cavity.
