Evidence-Based Clinical Orthodontics

Edited by Peter G. Miles, Daniel J. Rinchuse, and Donald J. Rinchuse

Despite the ever-expanding array of orthodontic journals and textbooks available today, too many clinical decisions are based on either anecdotal evidence or the treatment philosophy of the current luminary of the lecture circuit. The authors of this book take an unbiased approach to orthodontics by systematically reviewing the relevant clinical literature and analyzing the scientific evidence to help practitioners select the most effective and efficient modes of treatment. Each chapter addresses a specific topic by summarizing the literature, critically reviewing the evidence, and offering impartial recommendations that can be adopted by clinical practitioners.

Esthetic and Restorative Dentistry: Material Selection and Technique, Third Edition

Douglas A. Terry and Willi Geller

Restorative dentistry has seen dramatic advances in recent years, especially with the use of digital technologies, and this book provides the most up-to-date information on enhanced developments, materials, and techniques that have emerged since the publication of the second edition, offering the reader a completely updated, revised, and newly illustrated overview of modern esthetic and restorative dentistry complete with tutorial videos. New topics include web-based communication with the laboratory, indirect composite chairside CAD/CAM restorations, a comparison of digital and conventional techniques, the resin composite injection technique, as well as updated information on composites and ceramic systems, including esthetic zirconia. New cases illustrate the maintenance of esthetic restorative materials, esthetic contouring, immediate dentin sealing, and novel surgical techniques such as lip repositioning, connective tissue grafting, and ridge preservation with collagen membranes. Dr Terry expanded his team of editorial reviewers to include the best minds in research and clinical practice, and the final product is a testament to his dedication to patient satisfaction and treatment success. The techniques demonstrated in this book will no doubt elevate your practice to the next level.

Introduction to Metal-Ceramic Technology, Third Edition

W. Patrick Naylor

For 25 years, the Introduction to Metal-Ceramic Technology has been an essential textbook, and this revised edition underscores its import to the discipline. The author expertly outlines the history and theory behind metal-ceramic restorations and then guides readers through each step of the fabrication process. Although many students do not realize the esthetic possibilities of metal-ceramic technology, this book illustrates how to achieve esthetic results to rival those of all-ceramic materials through treatment planning, clinical procedures, and dental laboratory steps executed at their highest levels. New to this edition are an expanded illustrated glossary, a simplified four-step buttonless technique, fresh analysis of bonding mechanisms, and a full chapter on the esthetic porcelain-margin restoration. Written specifically for dental technology students, dental students, and residents in advanced technical courses.

RBFDPs: Resin-Bonded Fixed Dental Prostheses

Matthias Kern

Nowadays single-retainer metal-ceramic and all-ceramic resin-bonded fixed dental prostheses (RBFDPs) often present a minimally invasive alternative to single-tooth implants or other conventional prosthetic methods. With a growing body of evidence showing that implants placed in the esthetic zone of younger patients present a high risk of esthetic problems in later years, RBFDPs made from zirconia ceramics are experiencing a great renaissance. This book details the protocols necessary to achieve success when replacing incisors with single-retainer RBFDPs. Although the method is technically sensitive, it is simple and extremely reliable when the correct procedures are implemented. The principles outlined in the text can also be used to replace canines and premolars. Numerous high-quality figures detail the procedures for metal-ceramic and all-ceramic RBFDPs, and case presentations—some with 20 years and more of follow-up—document the development of the success model for RBFDPs. This comprehensive text will benefit practitioners who want to expand their minimally invasive treatment options for esthetic single-tooth replacement.

Anesthesia Considerations for the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon

Edited by Matthew Mizukawa, Samuel J. McKenna, and Luis G. Vega

Although office-based anesthesia administration has been essential in the evolution of outpatient surgery, it is becoming more complex as people live longer and with more comorbid diseases. The purpose of this book is to strengthen the margin of safety of office-based anesthesia administration by helping practitioners determine whether the patients they treat are good candidates for office-based anesthesia. This book is organized into three sections. The first section provides a review of the principles of anesthesia, including the pharmacology of anesthetic agents, local anesthesia, patient monitoring, preoperative evaluation, the airway, and management of emergencies and complications. The major organ systems of the body are reviewed in section two, and the most common comorbid conditions that affect these systems are described in terms of their pathophysiology, diagnosis, management, and anesthesia-related considerations. Section three reviews patient groups that warrant special consideration in the administration of office-based anesthesia, such as geriatric, pediatric, pregnant, and obese patients. Spiral-bound and featuring tabs for quick and easy reference, this important book belongs on the shelf of every clinician who provides anesthesia in the office setting.

Oral Pathology in Clinical Dental Practice

Robert E. Marx

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. This book distills the comprehensive information from Dr Marx and Dr Diane Stern’s award-winning pathology reference text (Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology: A Rationale for Diagnosis and Treatment, ed 2 [Quintessence, 2012]) into practical guidelines for restorative and general dentists everywhere.
