The Alexander Discipline, Volume 3: Unusual and Difficult Cases

R. G. “Wick” Alexander

Following in the footsteps of the previous two volumes, this third volume of the Alexander Discipline, focusing on unusual and difficult cases, demonstrates through the pres­entation of complete patient records how these principles can be used to achieve beautiful, functional, and stable results even in patients requiring creative treatment planning and treatment mechanics. In the situations presented in this book, there is no one right answer to the problem, and the orthodontist must have the confidence and relevant knowledge to formulate the treatment plan most suitable for each patient.

Contents
Early Treatment • Borderline Extraction/Nonextraction • Unusual Extraction • Skeletal Problems: Class III • Skeletal Problems: Class II Deep Bite • Impacted Canines • Transposed and Missing Teeth • Adult Treatment

The Biomechanical Foundation of Clinical Orthodontics

Charles J. Burstone and K. C. Choy

All orthodontic treatment modalities, including different brackets, wires, and techniques, can be improved by applying sound biomechanics, yet much of clinical orthodontics today is delivered without consideration of forces or force systems. However, orthodontic hardware itself is only a means to an end point: tooth alignment, bone remodeling, and growth modification. The orthodontist can only achieve these goals by manipulating forces. This book teaches biomechanics in an easy-to-understand and engaging way, using examples outside of orthodontics to illustrate basic force systems and how they function and then applying these principles to the practice of clinical orthodontics. The authors cover all of the force systems an orthodontist needs to understand to deliver effective treatment, explaining how each can be controlled and manipulated and demonstrating the forces at work through exceptional three-dimensional illustrations.

Best Practices in Endodontics: A Desk Reference

Edited by Richard Schwartz, Anthony L. Horalek, and Venkat Canakapalli

This book is a compilation of practical information shared by some of the finest clinical endodontists in the world. Most of the chapters are short and focus on how to perform a single clinical procedure. They are written in simple language with ample photographic support. This book provides guidance for most common endodontic procedures but also for some procedures that are less common, such as how to treat teeth containing Russian Red; surgical extrusion; root submergence; and decompression. Because most of the procedures described are performed under a dental operating microscope, there are chapters on operatory design for microscopic endodontics, microscope ergonomics for the doctor and assistant, and how to set up and use a microscope for photography and video documentation. In addition, three chapters are devoted exclusively to understanding and applying CBCT imaging. Written at a specialist level, the book serves as a desk reference for clinical procedures and as a daily practical guide, but it contains information that is useful to anyone who aspires to perform endodontics at a high level.

Ceramics in Dentistry: Principles and Practice

J. Robert Kelly

This dramatic and living textbook changes the way clinicians can approach the science of ceramics. The author's straightforward approach is combined with an interactive visual program that features 3D models and embedded QR codes, which allow readers to link to video content and relevant websites. The author distills ceramic science to its essence, presents the relevant material characteristics, and addresses restorative concerns, including common fracture patterns for various sites, basic
esthetic diagnostic information, and how to choose the best ceramic systems based on the clinical situation. In addition, he provides insight into the limitations of zirconia and zirconia-titanium implant abutments and demonstrates how to cut through manufacturer hype. This is the most fun you will have reading about ceramics.

Bracketless Fixed Lingual Orthodontics

Anna Mariniello and Fabio Cozzolino

The increasing demand for invisible and comfortable orthodontic therapies has encouraged the innovation of brackletless lingual orthodontic treatment, which is accomplished by adapting orthodontic wires to the arch and bonding them directly to the lingual surfaces of the teeth. The authors demonstrate the use of this innovative technique in clinical cases of increasing complexity, from Class I malocclusions to the correction of Class III relationships, bilateral crossbites, and deep and open bites. Cases include analysis of treatment with and without extraction. Bone regeneration by means of orthodontic movements is also discussed.

Giovanna Perrotti, Tiziano Testori, and Massimiliano Politi

The use of 3D imaging allows for superior analysis, more accurate diagnosis, and better awareness and precision in the selection of therapeutic treatments. The creation of volumetric reconstructions from CBCT scans offers further advantages. The aim of this book is to show how 3D imaging can be used in clinical applications.

This book describes a methodology for creating biomimetic restorations that harmonize with the remaining natural teeth. The authors analyze the methodology for each phase of work, including the diagnosis and treatment planning, the stages of preparation and fabrication, and the cementation of the definitive restoration. All the essential components are covered, including occlusal analysis, soft tissue management, color selection, implant considerations, and guidelines for home maintenance. The merits of a multidisciplinary approach are shown within the a functional esthetic paradigm in which the prosthodontist, surgeon, orthodontist, and dental technician work as a close-knit team to ensure a predictable and reproducible result.
