Contemporary Restoration of Endodontically Treated Teeth: Evidence-Based Diagnosis and Treatment Planning

Edited by Nadim Z. Baba

This much-needed book has a wealth of evidence-based information on all facets of the restoration of pulpless teeth. With a better understanding of the factors that can influence the prognosis of severely compromised teeth, the approach to treating these teeth has evolved, and this text offers a well-balanced, contemporary approach to treatment planning. Traditional principles and techniques are reviewed and reinforced, along with modern materials and methods, all with a firm foundation in the best available scientific evidence and with an emphasis on clinical studies. Many of the chapters provide comprehensive, step-by-step descriptions of technical procedures with accompanying illustrations to guide the reader through every stage of restoring pulpless teeth. Preprosthetic adjunctive procedures, such as surgical crown lengthening, repair of perforations, and orthodontic measures, are also described and illustrated. For years to come, this text will remain a definitive reference for specialists involved in the restoration of pulpless teeth or engaged in planning treatment for structurally compromised teeth.

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.

240 pp; 617 illus;  ISBN 978-0-86715-752-9 (B7529); Now available! US $98

How to Make Metal-Ceramic Technology Look Good and Why You Should Still Be Using It


Essentials of Maxillary Sinus Augmentation

Francis Louise and Oana Dragan

Sinus augmentation has become a routine surgical procedure to increase the height of the edentulous atrophied posterior maxilla. Numerous techniques have been developed and perfected, allowing for a high survival rate of implants placed after sinus elevation. This book highlights pertinent anatomical landmarks and uses comprehensive clinical presentations to demonstrate the use of the latest ultrasonic devices for both lateral and crestal approaches as well as to discuss the management of possible complications. The goal of this book is to help clinicians understand each surgival step of the illustrated maxillary sinus augmentation procedures and the evidence-based rationale behind the decision making. The authors have clearly succeeded in their goal and created an up-to-date and accessible resource that every dentist performing sinus augmentation should have on hand for clinical guidance.

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.
