With these three books the authors justify a new field in medicine and dentistry:
An interdisciplinary maxillo-mandibular osteoimmunology. All three volumes document the fatty degenerative osteolysis of the jawbone on a case-by-case basis, emphasize their conspicuous overexpression of the inflammatory messenger RANTES/CCL5 and discuss 39 chronic diseases that may have been triggered by it.
The discussion shows that an extension of volume I and volume II was necessary due to the increasing importance and understanding of „silent inflammation” for the immune system.
The investigation of disturbing „signaling pathways” from the jaw area through insufficient wound healing after a tooth removal, inflammatory stimuli from implants and root fillings and their systemic intricacies, makes these three textbooks a cornerstone of medical progress.
The trust in the unlimited significance of x-ray diagnostics is questioned and supplemented by the use of transalveolar ultrasound diagnostics (TAU with ultrasound sonograph CaviTAU®).
