Preface

Over the last 30 years, the development of molecular biology has revolutionized our understanding
of the biochemistry underlying biology and medicine. As yet, there is no introductory
text that relates this revolution to topics of major interest to dentistry. Because of
increasing demands to make biochemistry useful by translating its findings into better
treatments for problems in medicine, the dental field needs a similar textbook. The primary
aim of this book is to integrate general biochemistry into topics that specifically pertain to
dental health and disease. First and second year dental students have completed a general
biochemistry course, but have, at best, a sketchy idea of how the material in that course
relates to dentistry. In a traditional dental curriculum, the topics of this book are covered in
physiology, nutrition, anatomy, histology, microbiology or immunology. This book was
written to enable dental students to integrate their general biochemistry within these topics
of dental interest. It was considered neither desirable nor practical to fill the text with references,
except for the figures and tables.




The formal discipline of dentistry was initially developed in the late 19th century to
treat dental caries, but it quickly spread to treat all diseases that affect the oral cavity.
Dental treatments have progressed enormously over the last 40 years, as have treatments
for many other diseases. The most powerful new dental treatments have come from water
fluoridation, better oral hygiene measures, new mechanical or replacement materials, and
the adoption of drugs developed for non-dental diseases. Nevertheless, these measures are
not universally effective and improvements can be made in many areas…
