TMDs: An Evidence-Based Approach to Diagnosis and Treatment

Edited by Daniel M. Laskin, Charles S. Greene, and William L. Hylander

This multidisciplinary textbook presents a unique approach to the diagnosis and management of the various temporomandibular disorders. Written by a large group of eminent researchers and clinicians, it links current scientific concepts of basic anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, and pathology of the temporomandibular joint with specific diagnostic and treatment protocols that are based on sound clinical data. Thus, in keeping with the current thrust in medicine and dentistry, the book provides access to the best available evidence so that clinicians can make informed rather than empirical decisions about what is appropriate therapy. Where lack of data or rapid changes in a particular discipline do not allow for evidence-based conclusions or recommendations, the book highlights the areas of agreement and disagreement in order to expose the deficiencies in our present knowledge base. In a field of treatment long associated with controversy, this book educates readers about which current practices of diagnosis and treatment are strongly supported by scientific research and which are supported only by practical experience and/or anecdotal evidence.

New Titles in Books

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.

Waxing for Dental Students

Rowida Abdalla

When dental students are first taught how to wax teeth, they need clear instructions with logical steps and plenty of illustrations. With the omission of any distracting information about dies, crowns, bridges, and occlusion, this concise book is squarely directed to first-year dental students and can be used as a primary laboratory manual. The author covers the basics of wax instrumentation and addition, but the bulk of the book details the steps for waxing incisors, canines, premolars, and molars. Each chapter includes an introductory waxing exercise for the tooth type, followed by the key points of morphology for the tooth in question. Photographs detail the waxing steps for both a maxillary and a mandibular full crown on a tooth peg and show how the wax-up should mimic the contralateral tooth in terms of dimension, embrasures, heights of contour, line angles, and point angles. The logical and straightforward protocols in this book will help dental students quickly improve their waxing skills and reach expected goals.

Quintessence of Dental Technology 2018

Edited by Sillas Duarte, Jr

QDT 2018 presents original articles with a beautiful array of images showcasing the year’s newest techniques, materials, tools, and innovations. This year’s focus is decidedly digital—digital treatment planning, digital communication, and digital multidisciplinary workflow for esthetic and functional rehabilitations. Minimally invasive techniques are highlighted throughout, including their use for full-mouth rehabilitation and to restore the morphology of teeth damaged by wear. A special “how-to” article on focus stacking macro photography by Carlos Ayala Paz is the first to be published specific to dentistry.

Digital Implantology

Giuseppe Luongo, Giampiero Ciabattoni, Alessandro Acocela

Digital planning of implant therapy ensures predictable and successful treatment by allowing clinicians to visualize the surgical procedure before they perform it. With this goal in mind, this book lays out the latest research on implant dentistry as well as effective case presentations to demonstrate cutting-edge imaging and surgical techniques. Readers are guided through the process of using digital tools at every stage of treatment, from developing the treatment plan to surgical execution. The authors detail the specifications of guided surgical procedures, review the latest 3D radiology options and software currently available, and present full case studies with stunning photographs. As implant dentistry relies more and more on digital technology, clinicians owe it to their patients to educate themselves on the most current tools available, and this book is the perfect place to start.
