New Books - March 2018


The bicon short implant: a thirty year perspective / edited by V. J. Morgan
Quintessence, 2017

This book offers not only a history of dental implants and the science of osseointegration

but also a retrospect of the Bicon dental implant that covers more than 30 years. In this time, the unique implant design has remained essentially unchanged, and the vast collection of clinical examples presented here aptly demonstrates Bicon's unmatched clinical capabilities. Bicon is a surgical-grade titanium press-fit implant with a scientifically explained and time-proven unique macrogeometric design. This design provides treatment opportunities for the benefit of clinicians, technicians, and most importantly patients by offering simple, predictable, and effective techniques that almost always avoid the time, cost, and morbidity of bone-grafting procedures and complicated prosthetic restorations.

Oral pathology in clinical dentalpractice / by R. E. Marx 

Quintessence, 2017

While most dentists do not perform their own histologic testing, all dentists must be able to recognize conditions that may require biopsy or further treatment outside the dentist office. This book does not pretend to be an exhaustive resource on oral pathology; instead, it seeks to provide the practicing clinician with enough information to help identify or at least narrow down the differential for every common lesion or oral manifestation of disease seen in daily practice as well as what to do about them. Organized by type of lesion, mass, or disease, each pathologic entity presented includes the nature of the disease; its predilections, clinical features, radiographic presentation, differential diagnosis, and microscopic features; and the suggested course of action for the dental practitioner as well as the standard treatment regimen. In keeping with the concise nature of the text, all but the rarest disease entities include at least one photograph to illustrate the clinical condition. From publisher site

Stability, retention and relapse in orthodontics / by C. Katsaros and T. Eliades 
Quintessence, 2017

This book offers a thorough analysis of retention and stability of the orthodontic treatment

results. The book is divided into three sections. The first three chapters deal with the historical aspects of retention, the biological basis of relapse, and the available evidence on retention; the next six chapters cover the stability and relapse tendency of orthodontic treatment of incisor irregularity, class II, class III, transverse, and vertical problems, as well as orthognathic surgery outcome; the final four chapters cover retention protocols and materials, including removable and fixed retainers, the materials and biomechanics of fixed retention, and the long-term effectiveness of fixed retainers. Within the content of the book, a number of reasons are given for the lack of stability of the therapeutic outcome, as well as the development of potential unwanted effects at the retention stage. From back cover.
