New Books - August 2019

New Books:

Garg Multimedia Group, 2018

"Written by one of the original co-discoverers of PRP, this book tackles this issue of "too much information" by illuminating the science behind the clinical use of autologous blood concentrates as adjuncts to surgical treatment and helps to establish a foundation of practical knowledge for clinical use. The first part of the book summarizes the current literature from all aspects of medicine currently using autologous blood concentrates, showing both the possible applications as well as the limitations of these biologic materials. The second part of the book provides step-by-step instructions and richly illustrated treatment protocols for a number of applications for autologous blood concentrates specific to the practice of implantology and oral and maxillofacial surgery."

Kaplan, Inc., 2019

"[This book] provides the test-taking strategies, realistic practice, and expert guidance you need to score higher on the Dental Admissions Test. Our comprehensive updated subject review reflects recent changes to the blueprint of the exam, question types, and test interface. You'll get two full-length practice DATs and expert tips to help you face Test Day with confidence." From publisher's website 

Quintessence Publishing Co, Inc, 2019

"[This book] explores the connections between oral infections and systemic diseases/conditions, incorporating feedback from scientists, practitioners, and policymakers. In addition to updated chapters about cardiovascular disease, diabetes, inflammation, and adverse pregnancy outcomes, authors have contributed new chapters about antibiotic prophylaxis, the genomic connection, common risk factors, and the economic impact of this connection. Because interpreting this research can be challenging, new chapters about causal frameworks and biostatistical assessment have been added, and specific clinical considerations for providing dental care to patients with certain conditions have been included in selected chapters. Besides providing readers with up-to-date information on the complex connection between oral and general health, this book prepares oral health care professionals to critically read and evaluate new research to ultimately benefit their patients’ overall health."

L’Harmattan, 2019

"L'Ordre des chirurgiens-dentistes a été créé par le général de Gaulle en 1945. Il y a bien eu une section dentaire du Conseil national de l'Ordre des médecins fondée par le maréchal Pétain et le gouvernement de Vichy alors que la France est occupée par les Allemands. Si on doit à la section dentaire le code de déontologie et l'entraide confraternelle aux victimes et prisonniers de guerre, sa mission première a été d'éradiquer les juifs de la profession dentaire. Cette structure sera annulée après la guerre par le général de Gaulle lui-même sur décret. Les deux institutions restent différentes par leurs actions et leurs missions respectives, même si on ne peut oublier les enseignements de l'histoire qui doivent participer au devoir de mémoire et servir comme garant d'une institution ordinale contemporaine."

"This book offers up-to-date, readily understandable guidance on the materials and equipment employed in digital restorative dentistry and on the specific clinical procedures that may be performed using the new technologies. The key components of digital restorative dentistry – image acquisition, prosthetic/restorative design, and fabrication – are fully addressed. Readers will find helpful information on scanners, the software for prosthetic design, and the materials and technologies for prosthesis fabrication, including laser sintering, 3D printing, CAD/CAM, and laser ablation. The section on clinical procedures explains all aspects of the use of digital technologies in the treatment of patients requiring removable partial dentures, complete dentures, fixed partial prostheses, crowns, endodontics, and implant surgery and prosthodontics."

Endodontic-Periodontal Lesions / edited by I. Tsesis et al.

Springer Nature Switzerland AG, 2019

"This book presents a multidisciplinary evidence-based approach to the management of teeth with lesions of endodontic-periodontal origin. The book opens by addressing the etiology and classification of endodontic-periodontal lesions, and demonstrates its relevance to the daily practice. Specific endodontic, prosthetic, and periodontal considerations that should be incorporated into clinical decision making and treatment planning are then discussed in detail." From publisher's website

Implants in the Aesthetic Zone / edited by T.R. Schoenbaum

Springer International Publishing AG, 2019

"This book concisely elucidates the science underlying implant treatment in the aesthetic zone in partially edentulous patients and clearly describes the techniques and protocols used by world-leading experts in the field. The book is divided into four parts that address treatment planning; site preparation (hard and soft tissue augmentation); immediate implant placement and provisional restoration; and the design, fabrication, and delivery of the definitive implant prosthesis. Complex cases of this nature present a significant challenge to even the most well informed and experienced of doctors. Implants in the Aesthetic Zone has been specifically crafted to meet all the needs of the clinician involved in their management, providing a reliable road map for interdisciplinary implant treatment in clinical practice."

Pediatric Restorative Dentistry / edited by S.C. Leal & E.M.Takeshita

Springer International Publishing AG, 2019

"This book describes and discusses the different restorative options for managing carious lesions in children with primary and mixed dentition. The aim is to provide practitioners with thorough, up-to-date information that will improve their clinical practice. The opening chapters present a comprehensive overview regarding diagnosis of carious lesions, risk assessment, child behavior and development, and behavioral management. The importance of oral health promotion and prevention in controlling lesion progression and maintaining oral health is reviewed. The impact of various factors on clinician decision making is then explained in detail, examples including the type of dentition (primary versus permanent), the clinical and radiographic aspect of the dentine carious lesion (noncavitated or cavitated), and whether the lesion is associated with a developmental defect." From publisher's website

Springer International Publishing AG, 2019

"This book describes the most commonly methods used for the study of the internal anatomy of teeth and provides a complete review of the literature concerning the current state of research employing contemporary imaging tools such as micro-CT and CBCT, which offer greater accuracy whether using qualitative or quantitative approaches. In order to facilitate the management of complex anatomic anomalies, specific clinical protocols and valuable practical tips are suggested. In addition, supplementary material consisting in high-quality videos and images of different anatomies obtained using micro-CT technology is made available to the reader." From publisher's website
