"This comprehensive guide to color science and shade selection in Dentistry presents all the theory and clinical guidance required in order to achieve consistent clinical success. The book opens by reviewing color and its dimensions and discussing color perception, drawing attention to the various phenomena that impact upon it. Shade selection in Operative Dentistry is then explained in detail with the aid of copious illustrations. The coverage encompasses shade selection methods for resin-based composite restorations and for bleaching procedures, with
presentation of the latest evidence on their accuracy and reliability. Guidance is then provided on how to achieve predictable color harmony between the natural tooth and the composite restorative material in the context of biomimetic Dentistry, with discussion of special effects, pigments, layering techniques, surface texture, and finishing and polishing. Changes in color over time and responses to such changes are also outlined. The book will be of value for practitioners in Restorative and Esthetic Dentistry as well as for dental students and researchers." From publisher's website.

"This book will serve as a one-stop, reference manual to understand the basic concepts of dental implant design, the related microbiome, research models and current concepts as well as futuristic perspectives in implant surface modification. The manual-like design including colorful illustrations and important critical questions will help researchers and advanced students in understanding the contemporary status and in designing studies for innovative treatments of dental implant infections. Considering the microbiome of dental implant related environment in health and disease is imperative to design strategies to good practice and prevention of infections around implants. This monograph will serve as a single reference material which links the interdisciplinary aspect of the dental implants covering material sciences, engineering and biological aspects, thus effectively bridging the gap between engineering and oral health sciences."

"This is the first known book on economic evaluations specifically geared to oral health professionals. The book serves as a starting point that explains the concepts and tools required for practitioners with little or no formal training or experience in economic evaluation to conduct such evaluations in oral health(care). It provides the foundation for applying economic evaluation principles to oral health programs as well as more advanced technical information for those interested in acquiring knowledge of health economics within the context of oral health care.

In the book, the authors describe the different types of economic evaluation and discuss their role and application in oral health care. Topics explored among the chapters include:
  • Why carry out an economic evaluation in oral health care?
  • Aspects of decision modelling for economic evaluation in oral health care
  • Interpreting economic evaluation in oral health
  • Worked examples in cost-effectiveness, cost-benefit, and cost-utility analyses
  • Assessing the quality and usefulness of economic evaluation in oral health: a practical approach for clinicians
  • Using economic evaluations to inform decision-making in oral health: Transferability
  • Economic evaluation: uses and potential uses in oral health policy development
Introduction to Economic Evaluation in Oral Health Care has an applied orientation that emphasizes practical solutions to managing existing problems and situations in oral health care. As such, the book is essential reading for oral health professionals including dentists, oral health therapists, and dental hygienists, as well as students in the oral health professions. The text is also an appropriate and useful resource for other health practitioners and managers who are interested in enhancing their practical understanding of economic evaluation including health economists and other health professionals and decision-makers."

"This atlas is a detailed and complete guide on imaging of the dentomaxillofacial region, a region of high interest to a wide range of specialists. A large number of injuries and patient’s treatment involve the facial skeleton.

Enriched by radiographic images and illustrations, this book explores the anatomy of this region presenting its imaging characteristics through the most commonly available  techniques (MDCT, CBCT, MRI and US). In addition, two special chapters on angiography and micro-CT expand the limits of dentomaxillofacial imaging.

This comprehensive book will be an invaluable tool for radiologists, dentists, surgeons and ENT specialists in their training and daily practice." From publisher's website.

Peri-Implant Therapy for the Dental Hygienist, Second Edition / by Susan S. Wingrove

2022 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

"The newly revised Second Edition of Peri-Implant Therapy for the Dental Hygienist provides a comprehensive guide to biofilm-focused assessment, maintenance, and home care for the prevention of long-term implant complications. The book offers clinical protocols ranging from single titanium and ceramic implant-borne restorations to the fixed full arch final prosthesis. The text also discusses pre-surgical regenerative procedures, implant placement, and patient communication to support hygienists and other dental professionals in talking to patients about implant dentistry.

The book is a valuable clinically oriented resource guide for dental professionals seeing patients with titanium and ceramic dental implants. This new edition introduces readers to new information on ceramic implant instrumentation and ‘Mastering the Arch’, as well as detailed information on how to remove, assess, and provide maintenance for full arch prostheses patients. A new companion website provides dental instructor materials, review questions and answers, lesson plans, videos, PowerPoint slides, skills evaluations, and learning objectives. The book includes:

  • Useful clinical photographs, illustrations, and patient cases to demonstrate the concepts discussed throughout the book
  • Researched protocols for assessment, professional in-office maintenance, and biofilm-focused patient home care to meet all the peri-implant therapy challenges
  • Updated classification, guidelines, and treatments for peri-implant disease
  • Technology and resources for prevention of peri-implantitis and complications that can be prevented with early detection and patient awareness

Ideal for dental hygienists and dental hygiene and dental students, Peri-Implant Therapy for the Dental Hygienist is also an essential reference for any dental professional seeking a one-stop resource for maintaining dental implants and managing their complications." From publisher's website.

A Practical Approach to Special Care in Dentistry delivers a comprehensive and robust overview of special care dentistry reflecting the most common compromised clinical conditions dentists will regularly encounter. It discusses more than 50 topics based on real-world clinical cases focusing on two main areas: patients with disabilities and medically compromised patients.

The book uses a problem-based learning approach and helps the reader to apply knowledge in a clinical case context. Each chapter contains a case report establishing the main risk factors relating to the provision of dental treatment. That is followed by a practical and realistic set of adaptations for the reader to follow to minimise the rate and severity of potential complications for their patient. The book also includes:

  • A thorough introduction to patients suffering from disabilities, including physical disabilities, like cerebral palsy and epilepsy, and cognitive impairments, like Down’s Syndrome
