Specialty imaging: dental implants / edited by D.F. Tamimi, et al.  
Amirsys, Inc., 2014
Stacks RK667 .I45 S643 2014Y

"Specialty imaging: dental implants begins with the basics of implant dentistry (the
anatomy and nomenclature of dental implants and biological and biochemical considerations) then discusses patient selection and considerations for implant placement in different edentulous schemata. It then describes the imaging toolbox in order to inform clinicians of available imaging options, the pros and cons of each, and how to utilize these options in evaluating planned implant sites. The radiographic analysis section commences with a review of normal anatomy as is relevant to implants and then tackles some of the more common pathology encountered when evaluating radiographic data for implants, providing dental implant correlations when applicable. The subsequent section on alveolar process augmentation illustrates options available in cases where radiographic findings are within normal limits and the alveolar process has been found to be atrophic. The book concludes with sections on postimplant placement imaging protocols, the radiographic appearance of success, and the radiographic appearance of complications associated with dental implant treatment."

The Alexander discipline: unusual and difficult cases, volume 3 / by R.G. Alexander
Quintessence Publishing Co, Inc., 2016
Stacks RK521 .A439 2008X v.3

"The purpose of this book is to demonstrate how certain changes should be made from the "routine" system to adapt to the individual "unusual" case. These changes can include unusual extraction patterns, bracket angulations, treatment timing, and substitution of selected teeth. The most exciting thing about this book is that it demonstrates how "adaptable" the dentoalveolar hard and soft tissues can be under certain conditions [...] Hopefully this book can give the reader a new perspective in regard to the treatment of certain malocclusions and the potential stability possible for each."

Color atlas of dental medicine: orthodontic diagnosis / by T. Rakosi, I. Jonas, and T.M. Graber
Thieme Medical Publishers Inc., 1993
Stacks RK522 .R34313 1993

"This volume is a handy, illustrated manual covering orthodontic diagnostic techniques. Modern orthodontics includes a series of different types of treatment requiring precise diagnostic techniques in order to produce a positive outcome. This atlas includes the examination methods required for everyday treatment. Apart from the conventional examination methods, i.e., clinical and radiographic examinations and cast analysis, three aspects which are often neglected are describes in detail:
  • Growth of the facial skeleton. Types of treatment which promote or guide growth are often employed as a part of orthodontic therapy - assuming that there is still a potential for growth - with the intention of harmonizing the various components of the facial skeleton. In order to control these natural processes artificially, a precise understanding of them is required
  • Etiology of the malocclusion. Causative therapy is always desirable and promising. The various types of causative therapy and the elimination of the causes depend on the etiologic assessment.
  • Functional analysis. Analysis of function is a part of the clinical examination. If one considers that on the one hand many malocclusions are a result of dysfunctions and, on the other hand, a variety of methods are available for treating dysfunctions, functional analysis must be taken seriously.
This color atlas should enable the operator to assess the malocclusion and simplifies selection of the method of treatment for individual cases. It provides an overview and serves as a reference book for use in daily practice." Taken from Preface, viii
