This updated edition of the "American Academy of Oral Medicine (AAOM) Clinician's Guide" series bestseller is intended as a quick reference to the etiologic factors, clinical description, currently accepted therapeutic management and patient education of the more common oral conditions. Topics include: chapped lips, cheilitis, taste disorders, shingles, dry mouth and recurrent orofacial herpes simplex. For many conditions described in this monograph there is currently no cure, but the treatment modalities outlined in the guide can help practitioners offer their patients relief from discomfort and the best available management techniques for each presenting condition.
