The Mount Sinai Medical Center Family Guide to Dental Health

Jack Klatell, Author, Gray Williams, Author, Gary Williams, With MacMillan Publishing Company $29.95 (304p) ISBN 978-0-02-563675-0
The authors, professors of dentistry at New York City's Mount Sinai, stress in this comprehensive, user-friendly volume that maintaining dental health must be a collaborative effort between dentist and patient. To that end, they provide browsers with sound information about basics: how to select the right toothpaste; the true function of mouthwashes; and the details of advanced treatment (implants, aesthetic dentistry). As well as describing all the tools used by dentists, they explain--without undue grisliness--how these are used to restore or extract teeth. Also discussed: oral anatomy, specific dental disorders, the current state of the dental profession. The writers educate us to become better dental consumers in matters of dental insurance as well as doctors. Particularly helpful are chapters addressing the special needs of people with dentist phobias and first aid for dental emergencies. Illustrations not seen by PW. First serial to Redbook. (Oct.)
