"Drug-induced osteonecrosis of the jaws (DIONJ) is something oral surgeons are all too familiar with. For decades, Dr Marx has advocated drug holidays and other clinical tactics that can help mitigate the effects of bisphosphonates and other DIONJ-causing agents, particularly in patients being treated for osteoporosis or cancer. This book provides doctors and surgeons with the strategies and guidelines to treat DIONJ effectively and prevent it whenever possible. The first chapter explains the mechanism of action of DIONJ as well as its risk factors and staging, and the following chapters outline how to diagnose, treat, and even prevent DIONJ in patients with osteoporosis and cancer. Twenty cases are included to show how DIONJ presents clinically and what to do in each situation based on severity and patient condition. As the avoidance of DIONJ-causing drugs is not always feasible in the treatment of cancer, Dr Marx gives clear and practical information on how best to handle each situation, so oral surgeons and other clinicians can decide on the best possible treatment plans for their patients."

"This book helps in understanding the relationship between microorganisms and oral carcinogenesis, and the possible oncogenic mechanisms enhancing the association. The book highlights the association between oral cancer, primarily oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC), a major global health problem with high incidence and low survival rates with infection and inflammation. Establishing the association of the oral microbiome with cancer risk may lead to significant advances in the understanding cancer etiology, potentially opening a new research paradigm for cancer prevention.

The book takes the readers through interesting topics such as the epidemiology and etiology of OSCC, the hallmarks of cancer, and the role of inflammation in OCSS. It presents the difference between the normal and diseased oral microbiome. It further describes the carcino-pathogenesis of various groups. Finally, it discusses the clinical correlation of the observations and what the future looks like for this area of research.
