New Books - December 2015


Check out the new book co-edited by Dentistry faculty member Dr. Anil Kishen (which has not yet been added to the UTL catalogue):

The root canal biofilm / edited by L.E. Chavez de Paz, C.M. Sedgley, and A. Kishen
Springer Series on Biofilms
Volume 9, 2015

"This book presents the current state of research on the basic scientific aspects of root canal biofilm biology within a clinically applicable context. Root canal biofilms are complex polymicrobial structures adhering to the root canal surface that are formed by microorganisms invading the pulpal space of teeth, and are associated with persistent root canal infections. Concerted efforts to study root canal biofilms have been made in the past decade, resulting in the publication of observational and experimental studies that detail the morphology and biology of these structures in infected root canals. In addition to confirming that bacteria in root canals do not exist in free-floating planktonic states as previously assumed, this new information on root canal biofilm infections has provided an opportunity to re-evaluate conventional clinical protocols and improve endodontic therapeutic measures."

Fundamentals of implant dentistry : prosthodontic principles, volume 1 / edited by J. Beumer III, R.F. Faulker, K.C. Shah, and P.K. Moy

Quintessence Publishing Co, Inc., 2015
Stacks RK667 .I45 F86 2015X v.1

"Some maintain that the concept of restoring missing dentition with osseointegrated implants has had a greater impact on the practice of dentistry than any new technology introduced during the last half century, and we are inclined to agree. These implant systems enable teams of restorative dentists and surgeons to restore functional and esthetic deficits with a degree of success only dreamed of prior to their introduction. However, in order to achieve this high level of predictability, the implant team must be aware of factors that predispose to their failure as well as a successful outcome. In this text, we have attempted to make the reader aware of the limits of this technology and provide a prescription for the clinician, or a formula if you will, that will ensure the highest degree of success.

In recent years, it has been acknowledged that implant dentistry is driven by the prosthodontic needs of the patient, and so this volume of our two-volume series is dedicated to implant prosthodontics. Although this textbook is devoted to designing and fabricating implant-retained prostheses, we have also attempted to indicate when conventional approaches (tooth-supported fixed partial dentures, removable partial dentures, and the restoration of diseased teeth with endodontic therapy and conventional restorative procedures) should be considered. We have also attempted to provide prosthodontic perspectives of the most commonly employed surgical procedures used to facilitate the bone and soft tissues of the potential implant sites that have evolved during the last 30 years."
