Best practices in endodontics : a desk reference / edited by R.S. Schwartz and V. Canakapalli ; illustrations by A.L. Horalek

Quintessence Publishing Co, Inc, 2015
RK351 .B47 2015Y

"This book is designed to be a clinician's guide in daily practice and is not a substitute for standard endodontic textbooks. It is not intended to be "scholarly" or "evidence based," although some of the chapters are well referenced. Many of the chapters are devoted to a single procedure or topic and are written as how-to guides. Specific armamentaria and step-by-step instructions are included, and documented cases are used to illustrate specific principles. Chapters include practical information and "pearls" on a wide range of everyday clinical problems and scenarios. These chapters are intended to provide clinical guidance to clinicians performing unfamiliar procedures or wanting to learn alternatives to their usual approach. It is a book written by clinicians for clinicians, at a specialist level, but it is intended for anyone who wants to provide endodontic care at a high level." Taken from Preface, ix

"This book discussed the basic principles, clinical planning, bone classification, bone regeneration techniques, standard clinical situations, special techniques, long term results and complications in modern oral implant surgery. Bioactivating Concepts are discussed from both aspects: basic research and clinical research. Chapters on basic research deal especially with bioactivation of bone morphogenesis and regeneration by bone morphogenetic proteins, biomaterials and bone repair, bone and soft tissue engineering, as well as cellular and subcellular physiology. Chapters on clinical research focus on intraoral operation techniques, including step-by-step augmentation procedures that are presented in a series of high-quality color photographs. The international group of authors represents different generations (from newcomers to well-established renowned researchers), concepts (partially controversial, but nevertheless encouraging), and last but not least, individual opinions based on personal excellence and experience."

Quintessence Publishing, 2013
RK351 .R58 2013Y

This book "is a very unique collection of histological images combined with supporting text. Essentially, this is a work that is at the same time an atlas and a textbook about clinical endodontics, based on strong biological grounds that eliminate the gap between clinical practice and biological issues. It bridges the basic knowledge, which common endodontic textbooks provide, to an in-depth understanding of endodontic biology.
"In this book, that biology is shown so that the reader can visualize what happened, understand what is happening, and predict what will happen with the patient. Chapters are also included that not only show and describe several aspects of the dental and periodontal tissues in both normality and disease, but also reveal the tissue responses to treatment procedures."

RK521 .B87 2015X

"Historically, the mainstay of orthodontic treatment has been the appliance. Orthodontists have been trained to fabricate and use appliances and sequences of application shapes called techniques. However, appliances are only the instrument to produce force systems, which are the basis of tooth position and bone modification. And yet a thorough understanding of scientific biomechanics has not been a central part of orthodontic training and practice. Both undergraduate and graduate courses in most dental schools lack sound courses in mechanics and physics. What makes this problem worse is that there are few textbooks that describe biomechanics in a way that is suitable for the clinician. The authors hope this text will fill this void." Taken from Preface, vii

Quintessence Publishing Co, Inc, 2015
RK667 .I45 R35 2015X

"Much has already been written on this topic from both research and clinical perspectives. The vision for this book, however, is to provide clinicians with evidence-based concepts that will guide them as technologies and materials in dentistry continue to evolve. The goal is to demystify clinical restorative procedures and help restorative dentists ensure better control of the soft tissue frame (also known as the pink esthetics) during all clinical steps of restorative therapy while enhancing a healthy and esthetic treatment outcome. Therefore, the book offers a simplified approach for soft tissue management during restorative therapy and practical tools that restorative dentists may apply in their daily practice." Taken from Preface, vii

  1. Polymer surface modification
  2. Biomedical, pharmaceutical and dental fields
  3. Adhesives and adhesive joints
  4. General Adhesion Aspects         
The topics covered include: Adhesion of condensed bodies at microscale; imparting adhesion property to silicone material; functionally graded adhesively bonded joints; synthetic adhesives for wood panels; adhesion theories in wood adhesive bonding; adhesion and surface issues in biocomposites and bionanocomposites; adhesion phenomena in pharmaceutical products and applications of AFM; cyanoacrylate adhesives in surgical applications; ways to generate monosort functionalized polyolefin surfaces; nano-enhanced adhesives; bonding dissimilar materials in dentistry; flame treatment of polymeric materials-relevance to adhesion; and mucoadhesive polymers for enhancing retention of ocular drug delivery."
