New Books - May 2015


Esthetics and biomechanics in orthodontics / edited by R. Nanda
Elsevier/Saunders 2015

This book "provides everything you need to know to successfully apply biomechanics in clinical orthodontics. This edition features new content in the areas of tooth movement, treating Class III malocclusions, skeletal anchorage, Surgery First treatment plans, and space closure. In addition to comprehensive guidance on basic biomechanic principles, this state-of-the-art reference also shows how all techniques can apply biomechanical principles to improve the force delivery, understand and prevent side effects, and achieve predictable results."

Complications in endodontic surgery : prevention, identification, and management / edited by I. Tsesis
Springer, 2014

"This book presents up-to-date recommendations for the prevention, diagnosis, and management of complications in endodontic surgical procedures, based on the best available scientific evidence. Common risks such as wound healing impairment, infection and bleeding are discussed and specific complications related to endodontic surgery, such as maxillary sinus involvement and damage to adjacent neurovascular structures, are reviewed. For each step of endodontic surgical procedures, surgical goals and possible outcomes are reviewed. Preoperative, intraoperative and postoperative risk factors for complications are identified and treatment options presented. Helpful decision-making algorithms, tables and flow charts complement the reader-friendly text." Taken from About This Book


Anatomy and physiology, 8th edition / by K.T. Patton and G.A. Thibodeau
Mosby/Elsevier, 2013

This book "is dominated by two major unifying themes: (1) the complementarity of normal structure and function and (2) homeostasis. The student is shown, in every chapter of the book, how organized anatomical structures of a particular size, shape, form, or placement serve unique and specialized functions. The integrating principle of homeostasis is used to show the "normal" interaction of structure and function is achieved and maintained by counterbalancing forces within the body. Repeated emphasis of these principles encourages students to integrate otherwise isolated factual information into a cohesive and understandable whole. "The Big Picture" summarizes the larger interaction between structures and functions of the different body systems. As a result, anatomy and physiology emerge as living and dynamic topics of personal interest and importance to students." Taken from Preface, vii

Note: A supplementary text, including a Brief Atlas of the Human Body as well as a Quick Guide to the Language of Science and Medicine, is available to accompany this textbook.

Dental practice in Europe at the end of the 18th century / edited by C. Hillam
Rodopi, 2003

"Here is presented for the first time an overview of dental practice and the providers of dental treatment at the close of the eighteenth century in some of the major countries of western Europe and further afield. It draws on previously under-explored primary sources, rigorously referenced, and enables comparison of and contrast within the emergent specialty in rapidly-changing social and political environments. The overall picture challenges conventional wisdom and will be of interest to social as well as to dental and medical historians." Taken from back cover

Wheeler's dental anatomy, physiology, and occlusion, 10th edition / by S.J. Nelson
Elsevier/Saunders, 2015

"Applying dental anatomy to the practice of dentistry, this market-leading text provides illustrated coverage of dentitions, pulp formation, the sequence of eruption, and clinical considerations. It is also used as a reference in creating examination questions for the dental anatomy and occlusion section of the NBDE Part I." Taken from back cover

Minimally invasive periodontal therapy : clinical techniques and visualization technology / edited by S.K. Harrel and T.G. Wilson, Jr.
Wiley-Blackwell, 2015

This book "evaluates the advantages of using minimal invasive techniques, the technologies available for enhancing visualization during minimally invasive therapy, and step-by-step illustrates the clinical use of each technique. Each chapter addresses the advantages and disadvantages of minimally invasive therapies, rationale for the approach, and the advantages and limitations of each of the current methods of improving visualization. The chapters then provide an evidence-based review of the technologies and procedures, and end with case studies for each visualization procedure, featuring clinical photographs."

An introduction to oral and maxillofacial surgery, 2nd edition / by D.A. Mitchell and A.N. Kanatas
CRC Press, 2015

This book "encompasses the full range of oral and maxillofacial surgery. It also addresses the necessary core competencies for undergraduates and those pursuing basic specialist training. The second edition now includes international perspectives [...] The book's initial chapters cater to all approaches of initial training and crucially bring them together in the specialist surgical sections. In chapters where the UK, US, and German perspectives are distinctly different, a section at the end has been added offering a specific perspective. However, where there is general consensus the international views have been integrated into the main body of the text." Taken from back cover

Mosby's orthodontic review, 2nd edition / by J.D. English, S. Akyalcin, T. Peltomaki, and K. Litschel
Elsevier/Mosby, 2015

"A concise review of orthodontic concepts, diagnosis, treatment planning, and clinical treatment, this book prepares you for certification and recertification examinations as well as clinical practice.

Evolution : contemporary protocols for anterior single-tooth implants / by I. Gamborena and M.B. Blatz
Quintessence Publishing Co, Inc, 2015

"The single-tooth implant has become a very popular treatment option in the anterior dentition. However, while the key to success in this demanding and challenging treatment lies in the very fine details, there is little detailed guidance in the dental literature to assist the clinician in achieving optimal long-lasting esthetic and functional outcomes. The intention of this book is to provide exactly that and to present a snapshot of current techniques and technologies, purposely pushing the boundaries with some of these novel concepts beyond common ideas with the goal of instilling imagination, creativity, and curiosity for what lies ahead." Taken from Introduction

Rational root canal treatment in practice, 2nd edition / by J.M. Whitworth
Quintessence Publishing Co. Ltd., 2014

"Endodontics has never been shy of technology, promising simpler, quicker, more consistent and aestetically pleasing results. But how often is there real evidence, and how often is the fundamental biology forgotten? This handbook returns to the principles of infection control to rationalise mechanical stages of treatment and reveal where new and older techniques can optimise efficiency and successful outcomes for patients." Taken from back cover

Esthetic dentistry : a clinical approach to techniques and materials, 3rd edition / by K.W. Aschheim
Elsevier Mosby, 2015
