Excerpt from Oral Pathology and Practice: A d104-Book for the Use of Students in Dental Colleges and a Hand-Book for Dental PractitionersIt has been the aim Of the author to consider as succinctly as is consistent with clearness the functional derangements Of all the oral tissues that properly fall within the compass of a broad dental practice. In addition to this there are certain constitutional dis orders, the effects Of which may be observed in and about the oral cavity, which have not as yet been incorporated into our specialty, and perhaps never will be, yet of which it is essential that the dentist should have sufficient knowledge to enable him to make a clear diagnosis, even if he should not purpose active remedial measures. Such disorders as facial paralysis, syphilis, and tumors have therefore been given a general consideration, but practitioners who wish to make a more exhaustive study Of those subjects are referred to special works upon them. It should not be expected that a writer would blindly' and unreservedly follow even accepted practice when in his opinion it is founded in error: such a course would make Of him a mere echo, and would inhibit originality and progress. If, therefore, the author has advanced his own ideas upon subjects concerning which there is a difference of Opinion, he believes them entitled to candid consideration in the light in which they are presented. If not found in harmony with clinical experience and Observation, they disprove themselves. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
