New Books - October 2013


Regenerative dentistry / by Mona K. Marei

"In this book, we review the current knowledge available to regenerate alveolar bone, periodontal structure, and pulp/dentin complex. The book provides researchers with detailed information about development and functional characteristics of the dental unit with detailed protocols covering a comprehensive range of various approaches to engineer dental tissues: to use isolated cells or cell substitutes as cellular replacement, to use acellular biomaterials capable of inducing tissue regeneration, and/or to use a combination of cells, biomaterial and growth factors. We are well aware, with the concept changes in the field toward in-vitro biomimetics of in-vivo tissue development. The theoretical frame work integrating these concepts of developmental biology and developmental engineering is yet to be emphasized and implemented." Taken from publisher description

Emerging nanotechnologies in dentistry: materials, processes, and applications / by Karthikeyan Subramani and Waqar Ahmed

"This book brings together an international team of experts from the fields of nanomaterials, biomedical engineering and dentistry, to cover the new materials and techniques with potential for use intra-orally or extra-orally for the restoration, fixation, replacement, or regeneration of hard and soft tissues in and about the oral cavity and craniofacial region. New dental nanotechnologies include the use of advanced inorganic and organic materials, smart and biomimetic materials, tissue engineering and drug delivery strategies."

Fluorine and health: molecular imaging, biomedical materials and pharmaceuticals / by Alain Tressaud, Günter Haufe

"Fluorine and Health presents a critical multidisciplinary overview on the contribution of fluorinated compounds to resolve the important global issue of medicinal monitoring and health care. The involved subjects are organized in three thematic parts devoted to Molecular Imaging, Biomedical Materials and Pharmaceuticals. Initially the key-position of partially fluorinated low molecular weight compounds labelled either with the natural 19F-isotope for Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) or labelled with the radioactive [18F]-isotope for Positron Emission Tomography (PET) is highlighted ."

Atlas of cone beam imaging for dental applications / by Dale A. Miles.
Chicago : Quintessence Pub., c2013. 2nd ed.

Chichester, West Sussex, UK : Wiley-Blackwell, 2013.

"The book includes chapters describing epidemiology, diagnosis and differential diagnosis, symptoms, clinical characteristics and consequences, and aetiology of dental phobia, as well as intra-oral injection phobia. It also covers dental treatment of fearful children and the use of conscious sedation and other pharmacological methods to supplement psychological treatment. The core of the book is built on research from Scandinavia, the world leader in dental phobia research, and the editors are experts in clinical psychology and dentistry." Taken from book back cover

Early-age orthodontic treatment / by Aliakbar Bahreman.
Hanover Park, IL : Quintessence, c2013.

"This book is a compendium of significant and pertinent information related to early-age orthodontic treatment, a subject that seems to have evolved into one of considerable controversy, with as many orthodontists expressing a negative reaction as a positive reaction to its benefits. Dr. Bahreman is a believer in early-age orthodontic treatment, and he expresses some cogent arguments founded in years of experience in practice and teaching to back up his beliefs." Taken from Foreword, x.

Edinburgh : Churchill Livingstone/Elsevier, 2013. 3rd ed.

"This highly successful series has been specially designed to explore readers' knowledge through an effective process of understanding, learning and self-assessment. This approach allows students to identify their strengths, weaknesses and knowledge gaps and take rapid steps to correct any shortfalls and strengthen core knowledge." Taken from back cover
