Dental Erosion: Clinical and Technical Aspects of Minimally Invasive Rehabilitation (DVD-ROM)

Tomislav Kresic,
Wolfgang Kohlback, Udo Plaster

Acid reflux–related dental erosion is a topic of increasing relevance. This DVD-ROM presents an exceptional case report documenting a minimally invasive treatment for a severely eroded dentition owing to acid reflux disease. The film highlights the collaboration among a dentist and two dental technicians as they work together to find a treatment strategy to restore the patient’s lost vertical dimension and ensure both excellent function and esthetics. The film highlights the use of novel methods and materials, including the “silicone-in-silicone” method in which mock-ups, a therapeutic splint, and temporary overlays are created from the same multiple-use polymerization mold. The exceptional restorative results validate the innovative techniques.

Routes for Excellence in Restorative Dentistry: Mastery for Beginners and Experts

Edited by Luiz Narciso Baratieri et al

Excellence in restorative dentistry requires a lifetime of learning and improvement, and the best way to start is through instruction from skilled masters. This two-volume book consolidates the essential concepts and protocols for restorative dentistry. The authors provide an up-to-date review of the direct and indirect restorative techniques in composite resin and amalgam and include the kind of guidance that only comes from years of experience. Each technique is accompanied by exquisite photographic sequences that beautifully demonstrate the steps.

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.


Outcomes Data • Treatment Planning • Treatment Options and Materials • Restoration Principles • Cementation of Posts • Tooth Whitening • Crown Lengthening • Orthodontic Tooth Eruption • Intra-alveolar Transplantation • Autotransplantation and Replantation • Implants • Perforation Repair • Post Removal • Removal of Broken Instruments from the Root Canal • Endodontic Treatment of a Tooth with a Crown • Retrofitting a Post to an Existing Crown

Dental Erosion: Diagnosis, Risk Assessment, Prevention, Treatment

Edited by Adrian Lussi and
Thomas Jaeggi

This book provides a comprehensive overview of dental erosion, focusing in particular on its diagnosis, risk assessment, prevention, and treatment. The authors detail how to recognize dental erosion through the basic erosive wear examination; how to conduct a thorough risk assessment with a dietary questionnaire, health history, and measurement of salivary flow rate; how to plan appropriate restorative treatment based on the severity of the erosion, providing recommendations for specific instruments and materials to be used; and how to prevent and/or reduce further erosion after treatment through dietary alterations, dental hygiene measures, and even drug treatments or surgical measures. Ample case studies illustrate the many different presentations of dental erosion and restorative procedures are detailed step by step.

Layers: An Atlas of Composite Resin Stratification

Jordi Manauta and Anna Salat

Despite the many advances of contemporary dental research in biomaterials and tissue regeneration, no dental material can perfectly correspond to natural tooth. The authors of this dynamic atlas posit that it is the mastery of layering techniques and not the material itself that is most important in re-creating natural-looking restorations. This reference book presents over a thousand images to explore the stratification of natural tooth and demonstrate solutions for how to arrange layers of composite resin to re-create the color, opacity, shape, and surface abnormalities of natural tooth. The authors provide step-by-step instruction in basic layering techniques as well as in advanced applications of dental characteristics, which are possible with a wide range of esthetic dental materials. In addition, each chapter is prefaced with insights from luminaries in esthetic dentistry, including Luiz Narciso Baratieri, Galip Gürel, Pascal Magne, Francesco Mangani, Ricardo Mitrani, and Angelo Putignano, among others. Optimal stratification techniques not only create natural-looking beauty in restorations but also imitate the innate bioarchitecture of teeth, which is the foundation of functional and esthetic results.
