About the Book 

This pocket size booklet is a compilation of prescribed drugs and therapeutic regimens useful in the treatment of common oral diseases and conditions.

The drugs are grouped according to their class of action or use for a specific condition. Every effort has been made to ensure that drug selection and dosage is in accordance with current recommendations and practice. It is not intended to be all-inclusive, but is provided to give an overview at the pharmaceuticals available and the protocols that have been developed. The number at medications within each category has intentionally been limited so that the booklet may be conveniently placed in an apparel pocket. Oral pathologists and other clinicians who have an interest in oral medicine have successfully used the specialized protocols listed. Some regimens are off-label use.
