"Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are injuries or pain in the human musculoskeletal system, including the joints, ligaments, muscles, nerves, tendons, and structures that support limbs, neck and back. With the ever-increasing precision and complexity involved in dentistry along with an increase in patient expectation, procedures are taking a longer time. Over time muscle imbalances also can develop between the muscles that stabilize and those that move, and the stressed shortened muscle becomes ischemic and painful. the combination of these proliferative and infiltrative processes can lead to tissue changes over time. Awkward postures, forceful exertions, repetitive motions, duration, contact stresses, vibration and psychosocial factors are important risk factors for musculoskeletal disorders among dental professionals. This comprehensive review aims to provide a lead-in, definitions, basic structure of the musculoskeletal system, epidemiology and classification, mechanism of injury, signs and symptoms, diagnosis, risk factors, and management and prevention of work-related musculoskeletal disorders in the dental workplace."  From back cover

Oral Mucosal Immunity and Microbiome / edited by G. N. Belibasakis, G. Hajishengallis, N. Bostanci & M. A. Curtis
Springer Nature Switzerland AG 2019

“The first International Conference on Oral Mucosal Immunity and Microbiome (OMIM) aimed to highlight cutting-edge basic and translational research from an oral immunological and microbiological perspective. Oral diseases with a microbial etiology are the most prevalent chronic diseases of humans. Whilst not life-threatening, they can significantly compromise quality of life, are associated with increased risk for certain systemic diseases, and pose heavy financial burdens to national health systems. Hence, periodontal and peri-implant diseases, dental caries, root canal infections and mucosal infections are significant global public health problems. In this book global experts summarize and discuss the latest progress made in oral mucosal immunity and the oral microbiome. Target audience is basic and/or translational researchers with expertise in host immunity and microbiome research, and interest in oral health and disease. This volume provides a much needed quantum leap in the field, by joining forces to address gaps at the oral mucosal immunity-microbiome cross-talk.” From publisher's website

“This book is the outcome of a fruitful, long-standing cooperation between expert radiologists and clinicians, and explains the most relevant features and technical requirements that are needed to optimally conduct and assess MR examinations for temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pathologies. TMJ conditions are increasingly gaining attention, as the underlying diseases involved can vary considerably and be difficult to diagnose. Similarly, several imaging sub-specialties (e.g. dental radiology, neuroradiology, and musculoskeletal radiology) now find themselves dealing with the temporomandibular joints. The authors provide essential information on TMJ anatomy, dynamics, function and dysfunction. Correlations between clinical aspects and MRI findings are discussed and guidance for the correct interpretation of results is offered. Special findings that are helpful for differential diagnosis (arthritis, osteochondroma, synovial chondromatosis) are also examined. Given its extensive and varied coverage, the book offers a valuable asset for radiologists, dentists, gnathologists, maxillofacial surgeons, orthodontists and other professionals seeking a thorough overview of the subject.” From publisher's website
