Best practices in endodontics : a desk reference / edited by R.S. Schwartz and V. Canakapalli ; illustrations by A.L. Horalek

Quintessence Publishing Co, Inc, 2015
RK351 .B47 2015Y

"This book is designed to be a clinician's guide in daily practice and is not a substitute for standard endodontic textbooks. It is not intended to be "scholarly" or "evidence based," although some of the chapters are well referenced. Many of the chapters are devoted to a single procedure or topic and are written as how-to guides. Specific armamentaria and step-by-step instructions are included, and documented cases are used to illustrate specific principles. Chapters include practical information and "pearls" on a wide range of everyday clinical problems and scenarios. These chapters are intended to provide clinical guidance to clinicians performing unfamiliar procedures or wanting to learn alternatives to their usual approach. It is a book written by clinicians for clinicians, at a specialist level, but it is intended for anyone who wants to provide endodontic care at a high level." Taken from Preface, ix

Applied pharmacology for the dental hygienist, 7th edition / by E. Bablenis Haveles

Elsevier, 2016
RK701 .R46 2016Y

"Covering the most commonly used drugs in dentistry, Applied Pharmacology for the Dental Hygienist, 7th Edition, provides an in-depth understanding of the pharmacologic principles needed for safe and effective dental treatment and oral heath care. It discusses drug properties and mechanisms of action, dosages, intended effects, interactions, and adverse reactions - both for the medications a patient may already be taking and for the drugs prescribed by the dentist. New to this edition are topics such as drug-related osteonecrosis of the jaw, recommendations for antibiotic prophylaxis to reduce the risk of infection, cholesterol and cardiovascular guidelines, and new information on type 2 diabetes. Written by dental hygiene educator Elena Haveles, this trusted text prepares you for the expanding role of the dental hygienist!" Taken from back cover

A clinical guide to applied dental materials / by S.J. Bonsor and G.J. Pearson

"Prepared by a practicing dentist with teaching experience and an academic with clinical experience, A Clinical Guide to Applied Dental Materials places a strong emphasis on the practical usage of dental materials and is fully evidence based throughout. Features include:

  • Describes how to properly select a given material for any situation, how to use materials to best effect and when and how not to use them
  • Richly illustrated in full colour with over 1000 photographs, artworks and tables to clearly demonstrate both materials and techniques
  • 'Good practice' and 'Warning' boxes help readers recall important information
  • Self-assessment questions with full answers help readers consolidate learning and prepare for exams
  • Designed to improve clinical success and patient outcomes" Taken from back cover

"This book discussed the basic principles, clinical planning, bone classification, bone regeneration techniques, standard clinical situations, special techniques, long term results and complications in modern oral implant surgery. Bioactivating Concepts are discussed from both aspects: basic research and clinical research. Chapters on basic research deal especially with bioactivation of bone morphogenesis and regeneration by bone morphogenetic proteins, biomaterials and bone repair, bone and soft tissue engineering, as well as cellular and subcellular physiology. Chapters on clinical research focus on intraoral operation techniques, including step-by-step augmentation procedures that are presented in a series of high-quality color photographs. The international group of authors represents different generations (from newcomers to well-established renowned researchers), concepts (partially controversial, but nevertheless encouraging), and last but not least, individual opinions based on personal excellence and experience."

This book "is a very unique collection of histological images combined with supporting text. Essentially, this is a work that is at the same time an atlas and a textbook about clinical endodontics, based on strong biological grounds that eliminate the gap between clinical practice and biological issues. It bridges the basic knowledge, which common endodontic textbooks provide, to an in-depth understanding of endodontic biology.
"In this book, that biology is shown so that the reader can visualize what happened, understand what is happening, and predict what will happen with the patient. Chapters are also included that not only show and describe several aspects of the dental and periodontal tissues in both normality and disease, but also reveal the tissue responses to treatment procedures."

"Historically, the mainstay of orthodontic treatment has been the appliance. Orthodontists have been trained to fabricate and use appliances and sequences of application shapes called techniques. However, appliances are only the instrument to produce force systems, which are the basis of tooth position and bone modification. And yet a thorough understanding of scientific biomechanics has not been a central part of orthodontic training and practice. Both undergraduate and graduate courses in most dental schools lack sound courses in mechanics and physics. What makes this problem worse is that there are few textbooks that describe biomechanics in a way that is suitable for the clinician. The authors hope this text will fill this void."

"Much has already been written on this topic from both research and clinical perspectives. The vision for this book, however, is to provide clinicians with evidence-based concepts that will guide them as technologies and materials in dentistry continue to evolve. The goal is to demystify clinical restorative procedures and help restorative dentists ensure better control of the soft tissue frame (also known as the pink esthetics) during all clinical steps of restorative therapy while enhancing a healthy and esthetic treatment outcome. Therefore, the book offers a simplified approach for soft tissue management during restorative therapy and practical tools that restorative dentists may apply in their daily practice." Taken from Preface, vii

Handbook of pediatric dentistry, 4th edition / edited by A.C. Cameron and R.P. Widmer

Mosby Elsevier, 2013
RK55 .C5 H265 2013Y

"Richly illustrated and in full colour throughout, the Handbook of Pediatric Dentistry is written in a friendly 'how to' manner and contains useful 'pull out' boxes to act as useful aid-memoires. Exploring a variety of topics, the book includes discussion of child development, practical communication skills and advice on how to deal with behavioural problems. Clinical topics include the management of caries, fluoridation, restorative dentistry, pulp therapy, trauma management, oral medicine and pathology, dental anomalies, and the treatment of medically compromised children. Chapters also explore the use of orthodontics, the management of cleft lip and palate and speech, language and swallowing. Taken from back cover

Nanotechnology in endodontics : current and potential clinical applications / edited by A. Kishen
Springer, 2015
RK351 .N36 2015Y

"This book provides detailed information on the emerging applications of nanomaterials and nanoparticles within endodontics, highlighting the exciting potential clinical impact of nanotechnology in the field. The range of applications covered is diverse, encompassing drug and gene delivery, tissue engineering, antibacterial strategies, dentin tissue stabilization, dentin pulp regeneration, and use in restorative and endodontic materials. Important scientific background information relating to each application is provided, with clear coverage of basic principles. In addition, potential pitfalls are identified and explained. The cytotoxicity of nanomaterials and nanoparticles is also addressed in a separate chapter. The book will be of value both for endodontic practitioners and for all scientists and graduate students who are interested in the application of nanotechnology in endodontics."
