Technical Considerations, Perception, and Decision-Making

John A. Khademi, with contributions by Gary B. Carr, Richard S. Schwartz, and Michael Trudeau

This book encourages endodontists to develop a sound technical and theoretical understanding of CBCT. The authors compare the capabilities of modern CBCT imaging with traditional radiography and also present vital information about image interpretation and perception to increase competence and confidence in CBCT interpretation and minimize overdiagnosis and subsequent overtreatment.

How You See It and How You Don’t: How the Principles of Human Perception Affect CBCT Interpretation


Color in Dentistry:
A Clinical Guide to Predictable Esthetics

Stephen J. Chu, Rade D. Paravina, Irena Sailer, and Adam J. Mieleszko

Predictable shade matching in dentistry remains a significant challenge for clinicians in daily practice. Color is an important aspect in the esthetics of teeth and dental restoration fabrication, and color discrepancy can mar restorative results, even when other aspects (marginal fit, occlusion, and morphology) are adequate. This book provides step-by-step protocols to help dental professionals accurately match, communicate, and reproduce the color of teeth and gingiva. These authors demonstrate how to implement color science in simple problem-solving instructions for predictable esthetics in both clinical protocols and laboratory techniques. An extensive presentation of clinical cases is included to illustrate the use of recommended protocols in general practice. An outstanding contribution to the practice and theory of color management in contemporary dentistry.
