Springer, c2010.

Etiology and Pathogenesis of Periodontal Disease represents a new concept in periodontology with its pronounced focus on understanding through knowledge rather than presenting the present valid answers. Connections between the diseases in the periodontium and general health are described in detail. Even if periodontal disease is certainly not a generally accepted cause of death, periodontal treatment may obviously save lives.” Taken from publisher

Springer, c2011.

“Periodontal diseases are the major cause of tooth mortality in many industrialized countries and most developing nations. The significance of microorganisms in the development of virtually all types of periodontal disease is indisputable. This book is an encyclopedic collection of data from scientific papers and textbooks that form a sound basis for a thorough understanding of the antibiotics and antiseptics used in periodontal therapy. The prophylactic, systemic, and topical uses of antibiotics are discussed in detail, identifying the indications, advantages, disadvantages, and efficacy of each approach and regimen. The use of antiseptics is also carefully examined, with particular attention to the merits of different delivery methods and oral hygiene agents.” Taken from publisher.

"It is essential that dentists have a sound understanding of the principles underlying the selection and use of the materials they rely upon for restorative procedures. Rapid changes in material science, however, ensure that the typical lifespan of a dental material can be as little as three years before it is superseded by another one. As such, all practitioners need to be constantly up-to-date with developments to be able to assess the potential of new materials- a situation that requires a thorough understanding and appreciation of the composition, chemistry and properties of the materials they work with."

"Dental implants that integrate with bone are a very popular option for tooth replacement; they are, however, very demanding for the practitioner to plan and implement properly, and although there has been technical consolidation between different systems there are still important considerations remaining between them. This new edition of the best-selling guide to current implant systems considers the practical features that a clinician need to know for successful treatment planning, surgical placement, prosthodontics and long-term maintenance."
