What’s in Your Mouth? What’s in Your Child’s Mouth?
Douglas A. Terry
Health care providers have a responsibility to instill each new generation of patients with the importance of oral health care, and this book teaches pediatric patients and their parents the importance of proper brushing and flossing by showing what happens when children neglect their teeth. This hardcover book is two books in one. The first half (What’s in Your Mouth?) is written to introduce children to the importance of daily hygiene care, and fun tooth characters (Pearl and Cuspy) are present on each page to reinforce this message. The second half (What’s in Your Child’s Mouth?), on the flip side, provides parents with the information to guide their children’s oral health habits. This book is sure to enthrall and inform patients of all ages.
Revolutions in Pediatric
Edited by Christian H. Splieth
As a cross-sectional discipline that involves treatment from all areas of specialization, pediatric dentistry relies on the implementation of important developments in every dental field. This book discusses the most recent innovations in dentistry with direct implications for pediatric treatment and explores the rationale behind advocated changes in clinical practice. Presented by an international group of recognized specialists in their respective fields, the topics include the latest on epidemiologic research, fluoride guidelines, caries diagnosis, options for non- and minimally invasive caries treatment, pain-free techniques for local anesthesia, endodontic treatment, use of space maintainers, and treating children in vulnerable populations. With a focus on systematic, evidence-based dentistry, this book presents the developments that will set the standards of tomorrow.

It also profiles community health concerns that influence pediatric oral health, such as environmental and social factors, habit development, and nutrition and diet.

Pediatric Laser Dentistry:
A User’s Guide
Giovanni Olivi, Fred S. Margolis, and Maria Daniela Genovese
This comprehensive text, the first to focus on laser applications in pediatric dentistry, reviews the fundamental principles of laser energy and demonstrates the essential therapeutic steps of laser radiation in conservative pediatric dentistry. Detailed explanations of the unique interactions of laser radiation with dental tissues—with a focus on the differences specific to primary and young permanent teeth—help clinicians take advantage of the many inherent benefits of laser energy, such as selective removal of carious tissue, preservation of healthy mineral structure, disinfection of prepared surfaces, excellent hemostasis, and improved patient comfort and compliance. The predictable clinical protocols for hard and soft tissue applications are detailed step by step with explanations on technique and suggested laser parameters, and the outcomes are illustrated in multiple case studies. This practical guide will inspire pediatric dentists who are new to the laser as well as those experienced in providing laser therapy to adults.
