Health sciences have evolved a lot over time, we have witnessed that progress and we have received the benefits. Students and health professionals are of vital importance to generate well-being in societies. In the interest of maintaining an open door for research in this area, we continue to expand our list of health sciences. In this section, we present a collection of dentistry books in PDF format for the reading community.
This health science became professionalized thanks to Pierre Fauchard, a French doctor who, in the 18th century, published the work “The Surgeon Dentist: Or, Treatise on the Teeth”. His contributions were really important and, from that moment on, innovations and advances in the profession did not cease. Our books on dentistry provide information on this important specialty.
There are very ancient records of primitive dental practices, as far back as Ancient Egypt. Dentistry later developed as a profession. In the Middle Ages it was practiced by barbers, who extracted teeth for their clients.
Dentistry can be defined as the medical science that studies, diagnoses and treats diseases of the teeth, gums and stomatognathic system. The dentist is a professional trained in advanced knowledge and techniques to address all the problems of these parts of the body: teeth, gums, periodontal tissue, temporomandibular joint, maxilla, mandible.
Dentistry treats diseases such as: tooth decay, gingivitis and periodontitis. Some of the subspecialties that constitute it are: pediatric dentistry, forensic dentistry, periodontics, endodontics, orthodontics, among others. The care of the teeth is extremely important, the mouth is part of our digestive system, the smile is also part of our personal image, losing teeth can be one of the most shocking events for anyone.
