Prevention of dental caries in children younger than 5 years old : systematic review to update the U.S. preventive services task force recommendation / by R. Chou, A. Cantor, B. Zakher, et al.
Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (US), 2014

"Purpose: To systematically update the 2004 USPSTF [US Preventive Services Task Force] review on prevention of dental caries in children younger than 5 years of age by medical primary care clinicians [...] Conclusions: Evidence previously reviewed by the USPSTF found oral fluoride supplementation effective at reducing caries incidence in children younger than age 5 years but associated with risk of enamel fluorosis. New evidence supports the effectiveness of professionally applied fluoride varnish at preventing caries in higher risk children younger than age 5 years. Research is needed to understand the accuracy of primary care oral health examination and caries risk assessment, primary care referral to dental care, and effective parental and caregiver/guardian educational and counseling interventions."

Clinical maxillary sinus elevation surgery / edited by D.W. Kao

John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 2014

"Maxillary sinus elevation, followed by placement of a wide variety of grafting materials, has been the generally accepted surgical protocol for the development of bone in the sinus cavity. Over the years, various techniques have been proposed for maxillary sinus elevation, which differ in surgical approach, bone graft materials, and advanced technology application for hard tissue and soft tissue management. Dr. Kao and a team of experts begin by discussing anatomy, radiographic image applications and limitations, and then provide step-by-step clinical procedures for the lateral window technique, including piezosurgery, and the trans-alveolar methods, including balloon and controlled hydostatic sinus elevation. Also included are chapters on post-operative care and complication management." Taken from About This Book
