The extensive first partof the book explores the international epidemiological literature regarding awide range of conditions, from dental caries and periodontal diseases tohalitosis and malocclusions. In each case, the prevalence, disease-specificmeasures, and associated factors are identified. Attention is then focused oncutting-edge research topics in oral epidemiology, such as the intriguingmechanisms linking oral diseases and chronic general diseases, life courseepidemiology, and the role of socioeconomic determinants of oral health. Thefinal part of the book is devoted to description of the epidemiological methodsand tools applied in the field of oral health.
