"Drug-induced osteonecrosis of the jaws (DIONJ) is something oral surgeons are all too familiar with. For decades, Dr Marx has advocated drug holidays and other clinical tactics that can help mitigate the effects of bisphosphonates and other DIONJ-causing agents, particularly in patients being treated for osteoporosis or cancer. This book provides doctors and surgeons with the strategies and guidelines to treat DIONJ effectively and prevent it whenever possible. The first chapter explains the mechanism of action of DIONJ as well as its risk factors and staging, and the following chapters outline how to diagnose, treat, and even prevent DIONJ in patients with osteoporosis and cancer. Twenty cases are included to show how DIONJ presents clinically and what to do in each situation based on severity and patient condition. As the avoidance of DIONJ-causing drugs is not always feasible in the treatment of cancer, Dr Marx gives clear and practical information on how best to handle each situation, so oral surgeons and other clinicians can decide on the best possible treatment plans for their patients."

"This beautiful book was written as a guide for the clinical practice of restoring implants in partially edentulous patients with fixed restorations. It provides the essentials of implant prosthodontic workflows and protocols based on the best available current evidence—and in stunning fashion too. As an educator, the author has designed the book so that readers may search for the specific procedure they intend to perform and have a concise guide on how to properly execute it. Each chapter provides guidance on selecting an appropriate protocol or restoration, explains the rationale for the given procedure, and provides a detailed step-by-step protocol followed by special considerations and potential complications. Many of the techniques also feature a QR code linking to a video demonstration of the procedure. To make the book maximally applicable and remove any erroneous extrapolation from one system to another, the author has included directions and photographic demonstrations for three of the major implant manufacturers—Nobel Biocare, Straumann, and BioHorizons. In addition, a robust appendix at the back of the book includes checklists for nearly every procedure in the book." From the publisher's website.

"The minimally invasive philosophy underpinning periodontal and peri-implant microsurgery respects biologic principles, preserves healthy tissues, enhances patient well-being, and maximizes soft tissue esthetics. Distributed into nine carefully sequenced chapters, this book first presents the minimally invasive philosophy before demonstrating the protocols necessary for the development of new skills for the surgeon, walking the reader through each phase of learning and practice required to advance to the next. Once this training is complete, the book reviews the basics of ergonomics, magnification, and subepithelial connective tissue grafting before moving on to the hallmark chapter on microsurgical techniques. This chapter comprises half the book and systematically presents each microsurgical technique, illustrating it step by step and then showcasing its use in multiple clinical case examples. Digital planning and suturing are emphasized, as well as esthetic microsurgery and the correlation of these techniques with implantology. The authors’ end goal is to equip clinicians to perform increasingly conservative, biologic, and predictable procedures with the greatest precision possible." From the publsiher's website.

"The aim of this book is to focus on the dentin hypersensitivity in clinical practice. Dentin hypersensitivity is a common symptom not only in those suffering from periodontal disease and side effects from certain periodontal therapies, but also in individuals with clean mouths. The prevalence of dentin hypersensitivity in the general population is reported to be >50%, with higher values noted for individuals with periodontitis. First, this book provides an overview of the topic of dentin hypersensitivity, and then present a strategy for treating it based on the presenting clinical features described in six clinical cases. Dentin Hypersensitivity in Clinical Practice presents comprehensive information relevant to all dental professionals either during their initial training or as part of their professional development or research activity. This book delivers the underpinning knowledge in a logical and easy-to-read format and it contributes enormously to the professional standards required to deliver highquality assessment, treatment and management for dentin hypersensitivity."

"Filling a gap in the health policy literature, author and dental public health specialist Dr. Carlos Quiñonez explores the complexities surrounding Canada’s dental care system and policies, including how they came to be, their consequences, and what they mean for oral health and access to dental care. The Politics of Dental Care in Canada seeks to answer a long standing policy question in Canadian health care: Why is dental care excluded from Canada’s national system of health insurance, Medicare? The text presents a history of dentistry in Canada from the late 19th century onward, outlining how dentistry traversed a developing Canadian welfare state. Dr. Quiñonez explores factors that led to dentistry’s separation from larger movements in health care policy, including moral questions on individual versus social responsibility over health, scientific advances in the field, and prevailing economic uncertainty. Opening with a series introduction by Dr. Dennis Raphael, this vital text offers an extensive overview on how the politics of dental care contributes to inequalities and inequities in oral health. From discussing scientific and public health advances in dentistry to looking at the general nature of oral health care in Canada from an international perspective, this text serves as an important addition to the field of health policy and a foundational resource for courses in dentistry, health studies, and comparative health policy."
