Anatomy for Dental Students by D.R. Johnson
The aim of this textbook is to provide dental students with a description of all the gross, neurological and developmental anatomy (apart from that of the dentition itself) which is necessary for the practice of dentistry and its major specialities. Emphasis has been placed on those regions and topics which are of importance to the practising dentist. Thus, a major part of the book is devoted to the structure, function, development and growth of the oral cavity and its surroundings which form the anatomical basis of much of dentistry. Outside the dental region those aspects of anatomy which are necessary for an understanding of the general morphology and function of the body are stressed. Wherever possible adult human structure is explained on developmental or comparative grounds, and clinical applications are included when these stem directly from anatomical structure. In this second edition the section on neuroanatomy has been extensively revised and updated. The text has been designed primarily as a textbook for the undergraduate student who is pursuing a practical course in topographical anatomy, but it contains enough detail for the postgraduate dentist reading for additional qualifications.
