Complications in endodontic surgery : prevention, identification, and management / edited by I. Tsesis
Springer, 2014

"This book presents up-to-date recommendations for the prevention, diagnosis, and management of complications in endodontic surgical procedures, based on the best available scientific evidence. Common risks such as wound healing impairment, infection and bleeding are discussed and specific complications related to endodontic surgery, such as maxillary sinus involvement and damage to adjacent neurovascular structures, are reviewed. For each step of endodontic surgical procedures, surgical goals and possible outcomes are reviewed. Preoperative, intraoperative and postoperative risk factors for complications are identified and treatment options presented. Helpful decision-making algorithms, tables and flow charts complement the reader-friendly text." Taken from About This Book


Anatomy and physiology, 8th edition / by K.T. Patton and G.A. Thibodeau
Mosby/Elsevier, 2013

This book "is dominated by two major unifying themes: (1) the complementarity of normal structure and function and (2) homeostasis. The student is shown, in every chapter of the book, how organized anatomical structures of a particular size, shape, form, or placement serve unique and specialized functions. The integrating principle of homeostasis is used to show the "normal" interaction of structure and function is achieved and maintained by counterbalancing forces within the body. Repeated emphasis of these principles encourages students to integrate otherwise isolated factual information into a cohesive and understandable whole. "The Big Picture" summarizes the larger interaction between structures and functions of the different body systems. As a result, anatomy and physiology emerge as living and dynamic topics of personal interest and importance to students." Taken from Preface, vii

Note: A supplementary text, including a Brief Atlas of the Human Body as well as a Quick Guide to the Language of Science and Medicine, is available to accompany this textbook.

Evolution : contemporary protocols for anterior single-tooth implants / by I. Gamborena and M.B. Blatz
Quintessence Publishing Co, Inc, 2015

"The single-tooth implant has become a very popular treatment option in the anterior dentition. However, while the key to success in this demanding and challenging treatment lies in the very fine details, there is little detailed guidance in the dental literature to assist the clinician in achieving optimal long-lasting esthetic and functional outcomes. The intention of this book is to provide exactly that and to present a snapshot of current techniques and technologies, purposely pushing the boundaries with some of these novel concepts beyond common ideas with the goal of instilling imagination, creativity, and curiosity for what lies ahead." Taken from Introduction

This handbook returns to the principles of infection control to rationalise mechanical stages of treatment and reveal where new and older techniques can optimise efficiency and successful outcomes for patients."

Prevention of dental caries in children younger than 5 years old : systematic review to update the U.S. preventive services task force recommendation / by R. Chou, A. Cantor, B. Zakher, et al.
Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (US), 2014

"Purpose: To systematically update the 2004 USPSTF [US Preventive Services Task Force] review on prevention of dental caries in children younger than 5 years of age by medical primary care clinicians [...] Conclusions: Evidence previously reviewed by the USPSTF found oral fluoride supplementation effective at reducing caries incidence in children younger than age 5 years but associated with risk of enamel fluorosis. New evidence supports the effectiveness of professionally applied fluoride varnish at preventing caries in higher risk children younger than age 5 years. Research is needed to understand the accuracy of primary care oral health examination and caries risk assessment, primary care referral to dental care, and effective parental and caregiver/guardian educational and counseling interventions."
