"This book considers occlusion within the different disciplines of clinical dentistry, taking into account the challenges specific to each, in order to develop guidelines of good occlusal practice (GGOP). The GGOP for each discipline has benefited from an authoritative contribution of a recognised specialist in that field.  Readers will find full description of what constitutes good occlusal practice in, for example, simple and advanced restorative dentistry, removable prosthodontics, the restoration of the worn dentition and implantology. It is clearly explained why and how the GGOP differ in the various branches of dentistry, the key point being that it is the support for the occlusal surfaces that determines GGOP. One of the foundations of this work is that an occlusion can only be judged by the tissue reactions to it: there is no such thing as an intrinsically bad occlusion or malocclusion.

Today it remains the case that many dentists feel that occlusion represents an important gap in their knowledge; indeed, some qualify with little more than the belief that “occlusion is important”. Their vulnerability in this area of clinical practice is confirmed when early cases fail to go as well as hoped. In providing comprehensive guidance on good occlusal practice in different contexts, this book will be of value for a wide range of dental practitioners." From publisher's website.

Neuroscience for Dentistry / by Barbara O'Kane and Laura Barritt

2022 Thieme Medical Publishers, Inc.


"Practicing dentists are concerned with neural mechanisms controlling orofacial pain, masticatory function, taste, and proprioceptive input to the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and teeth. As a result, one of the primary objectives of a dental neuroscience course should be to instruct the motor, sensory, and autonomic innervation of the head and neck pathways as well as the fundamentals of the biology and management of orofacial pain.

Most neuroscience textbooks provide excellent content coverage but do not focus on head and neck neuroscience from a dental medicine perspective and, although suitable for most health care students, the content does not adequately target dental students. The lack of specific dental information in neuroscience textbooks requires instructors, students, and practitioners to integrate information from multiple sources in order to develop a clear and comprehensive understanding of the orofacial region. Because of this, we set out to create a textbook that emphasizes the importance of the orofacial region and presents dental applicable information in the context of fundamental neuroscience.

Neuroscience for Dentistry is a unique textbook that integrates fundamental concepts of general neuroscience with essential information on the neural mechanisms involved in the orofacial region and orofacial pain pathways. The text is arranged in two sections. Part I provides a concise overview of general neuroanatomy and targets all health science students enrolled in a first-year neuroscience course. Part II focuses specifically on the neural mechanisms that regulate mastication, speech, swallowing, as well as proprioceptive input from the muscles, joints, and periodontal ligament. Detailed information on the cranial nerves is provided, with specific emphasis on orofacial pain pathways, pain modulation, and pain control. The focus on orofacial neuroscience and orofacial pain is a distinctive attribute of Neuroscience for Dentistry and it addresses the fundamental need for a neuroscience textbook that is tailored to dental students, students of dental hygiene, and residents in oral maxillofacial surgery.

Although the textbook is written for dental students, it can also be used to teach neuroanatomy to other health science students or serve as a reference for dental practitioners and residents. To facilitate multidisciplinary use, the text is structured so that individual units and selected chapters can be used independently.

Key features of Neuroscience for Dentistry include:
  • Presentation of essential concepts of general and orofacial neuroanatomy through concise, high-yield descriptions and illustrations.
  • Schematics, charts, and tables to augment the concepts presented in the text.
  • Each chapter provides an introductory overview of chapter content and learning objectives.
  • National board style questions at the end of each chapter emphasize board-relevant information and allow for self-study.Relevant clinical correlations are integrated throughout the textbook to emphasize the relationship between basic neuroscience and clinical disorders."

6 Ways to Design a Face: Corrective Jaw Surgery to Optimize Bite, Airway, and Facial Balance / by Paul Coceancig
Quintessence, 2021
RK529 .C64 2021X

"In this innovative and paradigm-busting book, the author asserts that almost all bad bites have their origin in a small mandible, what he calls anterior mandibular hypoplasia, or AMHypo, and further claims that surgical management is the only means to correct it. AMHypo arises because of a small anterior tongue, and it leads to dewlap (poor chin-neck contour), dental crowding, impacted third molars, a range of dental malocclusions, and retroglossal tongue displacement into the upper airway. Traditional orthodontics often camouflage the small jaw by extracting “extra” teeth that don’t fit and controlling growth with various appliances, effectively leaving the patient in the same medical predicament they were before having their teeth straightened and their occlusion fixed. After all, for every patient with a bad bite, there are three combined, interwoven, inseparable treatment considerations: occlusion, airway, face. 
From Publisher's website.

 In this book, the author outlines the anthropologic underpinnings of the small jaw and then outlines his six surgical methods of designing the face to optimize bite, airway, and facial balance: IMDO, GenioPaully, custom BIMAX, SuperBIMAX, custom PEEK implants, and SARME. IMDO, or intermolar mandibular distraction osteogenesis, is a surgery less invasive than third molar surgery that can expand the mandible by as much as 16.5 mm and effectively bring the tongue forward to eliminate the potential for airway issues down the line, not to mention improve the patient’s profile dramatically. The surgeries and protocols in this book will have you rethinking your approach to patient care and asking yourself how you can better care for your patient now AND in the future. The author sees no reason why we should not expect to carry all 32 of our teeth for our adult lifetime in a Class I occlusion and free of crowding or impactions or airway collapse. Do you dare to join him?" From Publisher's website.
