Translational oral health research / by J.H. Meurman
Springer, c2018

"This book is the first to be devoted to translational research within the field of oral health. The aim is to expedite the transfer of knowledge gained in the laboratory to clinical practice. It is examined how basic sciences and basic research are providing new methods and materials that will enable clinicians to treat patients more effectively. Readers will gain a translational perspective on a variety of oral conditions and related systemic diseases. The importance of evidence-based research and the roles and comparative value of preclinical and clinical trials are highlighted. Knowledge of translational and clinical research is essential in understanding how new inventions and discoveries are being accomplished, and what regulations and guidelines need to be taken into account when planning studies, and not forgetting the ethical aspects of any research. Translational Oral Health Research is the first book to be devoted entirely to the subject, and it will be of interest to both researchers and clinical practitioners." From preface, v

The book opens by discussing general aspects of e-oral health, including tools, networks, and the very important ethical considerations. The use and specific benefits of e-oral health technologies in the diagnosis of different conditions, orthodontic assessment, implantology evaluation, and caries prevention are then fully explained. Finally, examples are provided of the ways in which teledentistry functions in different countries on different continents. e-Oral health is a burgeoning field that encompasses teledentistry as well as other uses of information and communication technologies for oral health care purposes.
