Understand the fundamentals of oral immunology with this accessible reference

Immunology for Dentistry fulfils the need for a comprehensive overview of oral immunology and its key aspects for dental medicine. Its broad-based and accessible coverage introduces readers to all essential elements of oral immunology, from mechanisms of the immune system through to specific diseases and pathogens and their interactions with the immune system. This thorough text will provide an understanding of the link between the oral immune system and oral microbiome as contributors to oral health.

Readers will also find:
* A thorough introduction to the basic principles of immunology and immune response
* Detailed coverage of subjects including stem cell immunology, periodontitis, hormone modulation in periodontal inflammation and more
* Color diagrams demonstrating key concepts

Authored by a team of international experts, Immunology for Dentistry provides a valuable approach to the fundamental and clinical aspects of immunology. It is a useful reference for dental students, teachers, and researchers, and will also be of interest to practicing dentists and specialists.
