What’s in Your Mouth? Your Guide to a Lifelong Smile

Douglas A. Terry

Dental clinicians have a responsibility to teach patients the importance of oral health care, and this book shows adult patients what can happen if they neglect their teeth. It presents full-page images to show what plaque, decay, and gingivitis look like and how they can contribute to periodontal disease and tooth loss. It also instructs the reader on the proper brushing and flossing techniques to prevent such negative outcomes. With the combination of exquisite clinical images and descriptive yet succinct text, What’s in Your Mouth?: Your Guide to a Lifelong Smile is an excellent chairside tool for patient education on oral hygiene.

Evidence-Based Dentistry for the Dental Hygienist

Edited by Julie Frantsve-Hawley

Like any other dental professional, dental hygienists must practice evidence-based dentistry (EBD) to provide the best care to their patients, whether it be through scaling and root planing, caries prevention, or patient education. This book is intended as a textbook for dental hygienists to learn the importance of EBD in the practice of dental hygiene as well as how to implement EBD practices and share EBD findings among office staff. As the dental knowledge base evolves and scientific discoveries are made, dental hygienists must understand how to seek out and evaluate findings and, if appropriate, apply them in their clinical practice, and this book provides all the necessary tools to do just that.
