New Books - October 2020

Alveolar Distraction Osteogenesis / edited by Nejat Erverdi and Melih Motro 
Springer Nature Switzerland AG 2020  

 Alveolar Distraction Osteogenesis Book Cover

“The second edition of this comprehensive book describes a new alveolar distraction osteogenesis method that offers important advantages and can be used for the treatment of various orthopedic abnormalities and congenital malformations. Detailed guidance is provided on the selection of suitable candidates for alveolar distraction, including those with cleft lip and palate, with severe bone defects, skeletal class II malocclusions and cystic lesions involving the alveolus. All aspects of treatment using the ArchWise distraction appliance are then covered, including technical preparation, surgical set-up and osteotomies, docking site surgery, orthodontic finishing, implant placement and prosthetic restorations. Detailed information on the principles of distraction osteogenesis, bone histology and molecular interactions during the procedure is also provided. The book concludes with helpful case presentations covering different scenarios in which treatment with alveolar distraction osteogenesis is advisable. Given the nature of its content, the book will be of interest to all oral and maxillofacial surgeons, orthodontists and restorative dentists.”  From publisher’s website

Periodontal Pathogens Book Cover
This book addresses the major periodontal pathogens implicated as causal agents in periodontal disease, including Porphyromonas gingivalisTannerella forsythia, Treponema denticola, Fusobacterium nucleatumAggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans, and Prevotella spp. Beginning with methods for bacterial genetic manipulation, the volume continues with sections on experimental methods to examine virulence factors, interactions with other pathogenic microorganism and host cells, as well as a chapter on an animal model of periodontitis. Written for the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Authoritative and practical, Periodontal Pathogens: Methods and Protocols serves as an extensive and useful reference for researchers studying periodontal pathogens and will help elucidate the causes of periodontal disease and the systemic diseases related to it.” From publisher’s website
