Zero Bone Loss Concepts / by T. Linkevicius
Quintessence Publishing, 2019
RK667 .I45 L56 2019X

"Bone loss is still a major issue that dentists encounter, but it is a complication that can be prevented. By combining clinical experience with peer-reviewed scientific evidence, the author of this book has put together a guide that any implant specialist will find invaluable to prevent bone loss in their patients. Different strategies are presented that can be used to achieve zero bone loss years after treatment. Because successful treatment depends on both the surgical and prosthetic components, the book is divided into two parts, each focusing in depth on what must be done in each phase to promote bone stability. Case presentations detail many types of clinical situations, implant choices, and prosthetic solutions, all backed by evidence-based clinical studies that have proven success." From Amazon

Applications of Biomedical Engineering in Dentistry / edited by L. Tayebi
Springer Nature Switzerland AG, 2020

"This book offers readers a valuable overview of recent advances in biomedical engineering, as applied to the modern dentistry. It begins by studying the biomaterials in dentistry, and materials used intraoperatively during oral and maxillofacial surgery procedures. Next, it considers the subjects in which biomedical engineers can be influential, such as 3-dimensional (3D) imaging, laser and photobiomodulation, surface modification of dental implants, and bioreactors. Hard and soft tissue engineerings in dentistry are discussed, and some specific and essential methods such as 3D-printing are elaborated. Presenting particular clinical functions of regenerative dentistry and tissue engineering in treatment of oral and maxillofacial soft tissues is the subject of a separate chapter. Challenges in the rehabilitation handling of large and localized oral and maxillofacial defects is a severe issue in dentistry, which are considered to understand how bioengineers help with treatment methods in this regard."

The Scientific Basis of Oral Health Education / by R. Levine & C. Stillman-Lowe
Springer Nature Switzerland AG, 2019

"The first edition of this classic text appeared in 1976 with the aim of refining and standardising the advice given to the public and to ensure that such advice was scientifically sound and evidence-based. It was written not only [by] members of the dental professions and those involved in general healthcare including medical practitioners, school nurses, health visitors, midwives, dieticians, pharmacists and public health practitioners, but also those who influence health in the wider community, such as teachers, child carers and peer educators. While originally written for a UK readership it became clear that it was used in other countries and that a new international edition was needed. To ensure that this new edition would reflect a consensus of international expert opinion and be relevant to a much broader readership, a panel of eminent experts was enlisted from as far afield as Japan, Singapore, Denmark, Switzerland and the USA. The text is consistent with current evidence and guidance from the WHO, and includes comparative guidance from other countries and systematic reviews of research evidence from the Cochrane Collaboration database. It provides information and advice on the main aspects of oral health, including the cause and prevention of dental caries, periodontal disease, dental erosion, oral cancer and dental problems in children under five. Throughout the book, key points are given at the beginning of each chapter, with an indication of the strength of supporting scientific evidence using a simple scheme." From publisher's website

Traumatic Dental Injuries in Children: A Clinical Guide to Management and Prevention / by R. L. Slayton & E. A. Palmer
Springer Nature Switzerland AG, 2020

"This book is a clinical guide to the prevention and management of traumatic dental injuries, including crown and root fractures and luxation injuries, in children of all ages.  Readers will find clear descriptions of the challenges posed by the pediatric population, the evaluation of injuries, diagnosis, management, and follow-up. Whenever available, evidence-based guidelines are used to inform clinicians of the most appropriate care for each type of injury. A holistic approach is adopted, taking into account the child's developmental stage and ability to tolerate the proposed treatment. When indicated, more advanced forms of behavior guidance are discussed to enable the delivery of safe and effective care that will allow the best outcome to be achieved. Often, traumatic dental injuries result in sequelae that compromise the health of the developing permanent teeth. These sequelae and appropriate treatment options are described along with innovative approaches designed to preserve bone and maximize future treatment possibilities. The book will be a valuable asset for both pediatric and general dentists." From publisher's website

Oral Rehabilitation for Compromised and Elderly Patients / edited by A. Mersel
Springer International Publishing AG, 2019

"This book is designed to help dentists in general practice to improve the results of prosthetic procedures in medically compromised and elderly patients. In particular, it critically scrutinizes various dogmas that govern practitioners’ approaches yet lack sound scientific support and often have an adverse effect on outcomes. Attention is drawn to straightforward procedures that offer significant clinical benefits and to aspects that are too often neglected, such as the impact of systemic diseases. New light is cast, for example, on the taking of dental impressions, the treatment of malocclusions, the making of jaw relation records, the relationship between denture quality and patient satisfaction, and the use of implant-supported overdentures versus traditional complete prostheses (dentures)." From publisher's website

Sleep Disorders in Pediatric Dentistry: Clinical Guide on Diagnosis and Management / edited by E. Liem 
Springer Nature Switzerland AG, 2019

A detailed examination of craniofacial signs and behavioral symptoms should alert the dentist to the potential presence of (a) sleep disorder(s) in children. The various treatment options other than positive airway pressure (PAP) therapy or adeno-tonsillectomy, which should be considered as potential life-saving short-term solutions, are discussed and shown. Treatment options that are discussed are dentofacial orthopedics (including orthotropics), orthodontics and orofacial myology; sample case outcomes are shown to demonstrate achievable results."

L’Harmattan, 2019

"L'Ordre des chirurgiens-dentistes a été créé par le général de Gaulle en 1945. Il y a bien eu une section dentaire du Conseil national de l'Ordre des médecins fondée par le maréchal Pétain et le gouvernement de Vichy alors que la France est occupée par les Allemands. Si on doit à la section dentaire le code de déontologie et l'entraide confraternelle aux victimes et prisonniers de guerre, sa mission première a été d'éradiquer les juifs de la profession dentaire. Cette structure sera annulée après la guerre par le général de Gaulle lui-même sur décret. Les deux institutions restent différentes par leurs actions et leurs missions respectives, même si on ne peut oublier les enseignements de l'histoire qui doivent participer au devoir de mémoire et servir comme garant d'une institution ordinale contemporaine."

Leadership and Communication in Dentistry: A Practical Guide to your Practice, your Patients and your Self / by J.P. Graskemper 
John Wiley & Sons, 2019

"This book is the result of many recent dental school graduates seeking advice regarding the direction their careers and their lives were heading. Some lost the balance required to maintain a healthy practice and a healthy home life. Some would mention after our sessions on leadership that they never heard of such material and wished they had more information. To maintain your life is not only to be living successfully but also to be successful at living. In dentistry, we need to take the lead in our involvement in dental insurance, or in our practices as it relates to our patients and our staffs, and the lead on how we manage ourselves to maintain that leadership and maintain our life. Being mindful of proper communication and leadership skills create a true balance for the successful dentist leader. Therefore, this book has been divided into three sections: Dental Insurance Companies, Your Practice, which includes patients and staff, and Your Self." From preface

In response to this development, a team of outstanding contributors has reviewed the most important aspects of root caries.
