Key Feature This volume provides the readers an insight into the recent developments and trends in the subject of Molecular Biology to help improve their day-to-day patient care and quality of life. Provides information about the molecular basis of various homeostatic mechanisms that maintain periodontal health and the alterations they undergo in diseases. Contains valuable information on the complex processes that regulate the Periodontium in health and diseases. Topics like Organization of the Matrix, Cell Cytoskeleton, Cell Signaling and Communications, Genetic Basis of the Periodontium, Molecular Diagnostic Procedures, etc. have also been elaborately discussed. Table of Contents 1 Cells of the Periodontium 2. Organization of the Matrix 3. Cell Cycle 4. Cell Cytoskeleton 5. Cell Adhesions 6. Cell Signaling and Communications 7. Genetic Basis of the Periodontium 8. Molecular Diagnostic Procedures 9. Microbiology of the Periodontium: Molecular Aspects 10. Tissue Engineering: Molecular Aspects Index
This book is primarily meant to help readers gain an insight into the otherwise complex processes that regular the periodontium in health and disease. Most modern diagnostic techniques and the newer therapeutic approaches utilize information that we have obtained from the study of various intracellular events. The knowledge of molecular biology is essential for students and clinicians alike for not only a deeper appreciation of Periodontics but also integrating future treatment strategies into practice. This book provides a stepping stone in this direction.
