Cephalometry in orthodontics: 2D and 3D / by K. Kula and A. Ghoneima
Quintessence Publishing, 2018.

"Successful orthodontic treatment of a patient depends on accurate diagnosis and treatment planning. The purpose of this book is to provide an updated use of clinical cephalometrics, an important part of diagnosis and treatment planning. An effort was made to minimize esoteric parameters that are not frequently used in clinical orthodontics and to introduce and broaden the aspects of the role of cephalometrics in diagnosis and treatment planning. Currently, clinical orthodontics in transitioning from the two-dimensional (2D) world to the three-dimensional (3D) world. The use of cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) has changed from a rather myopic view that the use of 3D CBCTs could be unethical to a far broader acceptance." From preface

Root caries: from prevalence to therapy / by M.R.O. Carrilho
Karger, 2017

"Case reports and clinical trials conducted in various countries show, more and more frequently, a positive correlation between the presence of original teeth and prevalence of root caries in older age. Bacause this is a global trend, it is likely that the predicted increase in the worldwide elderly population may soon cause a significant increase in the number of people requiring effective means of preventing and treating root surface caries. In response to this development, a team of outstanding contributors has reviewed the most important aspects of root caries. this new volume presents their findings along with discussion of how to deal with this health issue that progressively affects the oral health balance." From back cover


John Wiley & Sons, 2019

"Although the field of sports dentistry is ever changing, the primary objectives of this book remain the same: to inform dental and medical practitioners how to deal with orofacial trauma, both in the field of play and within the surgery environment; to introduce the concept of dental screening, particularly during pre‐season assessments; to prevent dental trauma of both an acute and chronic nature, acute being direct trauma to hard and soft tissues, chronic being tooth surface loss as a result of erosion; and to investigate the role nutrition plays in elite and amateur athletes, with a view to reducing the need for them to require reparative restorative dentistry in the long term". From preface. 

John Wiley & Sons, 2019

"[This e-book] has been organized with an initial brief review of the normal dento‐facial structure, progressing to discussions on dental and oral anomalies, and then finally considering the more frequent syndromes associated with tooth disturbances. We hope this will give the reader a better understanding of anomalies, along with an appreciation of how clinical presentations can differ during the long course of development of the teeth and jaws". From preface. 

John Wiley & Sons, 2019

"The book is designed to provide clinical cases relating to dental hygiene practice. Included with each case are problem‐based learning objectives followed by self‐study questions and take‐home hints that are elaborated answers of the self‐study questions. This book will bring together what the dental hygiene student learned in school in a case‐based format that stimulates independent thinking. This book covers all essential concepts within the scope of dental hygiene practice. Clinical Cases in Dental Hygiene can be used as a textbook to prepare for the written boards and also as a reference book in dental hygiene practice. Group activities can focus on discussing the major points raised in the study questions or self‐directed study on the major topics. The dental hygiene diagnosis and care plan are the focus of many of the cases to help guide the reader to the planned interventions and expected outcomes". From preface. 

John Wiley & Sons, 2018

"The textbook takes the reader through every clinical scenario, from the fully edentulous to partially edentulous, including the patient missing a single tooth. The chapters clearly delineate the different thought processes the clinician must go through when treating the functional (posterior) zone versus the esthetic (anterior) zone. The chapters are very well illustrated with the authors’ documented cases, highlighting the concepts and biologic principles that the surgical and restorative team must consider. There is equal focus on the restorative and surgical aspects of implant dentistry and procedures for both specialties are thoroughly covered with systematic reviews followed by a measurement of strength and level of certainty for the treatment recommendations". From preface. 

John Wiley & Sons, 2019

"This text is a summary of the surgical and prosthetic treatment regimens that are encountered for implants placed in the esthetic region of the mouth together with their outcomes. Each chapter provides an insight to the reader on how to accomplish and preserve an anticipated esthetic result with osseointegration.The chapters carve a pathway from the classical methods originally proposed to the contemporary contributions that are currently available. This text offers a step‐by‐step clinical protocol that enables the resolution of many problems. This text offers a step‐by‐step clinical protocol that enables the resolution of many problems. This text presents a lucid, multidisciplinary approach for implant treatment throughout the mouth, but it is especially dedicated to implants placed in the esthetic position".
