Wiley-Blackwell, 2015

"The new sixth edition of this textbook incorporates the important topic of the strictly prosthetic aspects of treating mutilated dentition. An essential part of comprehensive therapy treatment is treatment planning according to biological principles, to which special attention has been given. The installation of oral implants and their healing are covered in detail, and novel concepts of tissue integration are also addressed. Last, but not least, clinical experience from latter years has revealed that biological complications occur with oral implants. The sixth edition gives special attention to coping with such adverse events and also to issues related to the maintenance of periodontal and peri-implant health. All in all, the sixth edition represents a thoroughly revised syllabus of contemporary periodontology and implant dentistry." Taken from Preface, xxv

Twin studies : research in genes, teeth and faces / by G. Townsend et al. 
University of Adelaide Press, 2015

"This volume is about an ongoing long-term research initiative led by researchers from the School of Dentistry at the University of Adelaide. The aim of this book is to provide an overview of the studies of the teeth and faces of Australian twins and their families that have extended over more than thirty years.

Rather than providing detailed accounts of the methodologies and results of each of the individual research projects, the authors have provided general descriptions of the approaches that have been adopted and emphasised some of our key findings.

The book provides some historical perspectives of studies of twins, including those involving teeth and faces. It also gives an insight into the technological and scientific changes that have occurred over the past thirty years, including various twin models that enable exploration of genetic, epigenetic and environmental contributions to variation in teeth and faces. For this reason, it should also be of interest to students planning to undertake research involving twins as well as researchers and academics in the fields of dentistry and craniofacial biology."
