Español Dental: Its Use in Clinical Practice

Sabine Nemec

As patient populations become more multicultural, it is increasingly necessary for health care providers to have a working knowledge of Span-ish to provide the best possible care for their patients. This workbook is suitable for those with only basic Spanish language knowledge as well as more advanced speakers who need to learn the dental lexicon. It covers basic terminology in areas such as appointment-making, oral anatomy, and patient education, as well as specialized areas like prophylaxis, esthetics, prosthodontics, orthodontics, and implantology. Each chapter includes vocabulary lists, examples of common verbal exchanges between patients and providers, and exercises to help strengthen the reader’s knowledge through practice. This book will benefit everyone in the office who may have contact with patients, from dentists to hygienists, receptionists, and dental assistants, and will enable them to provide higher-quality care for Spanish-speaking patients.

Cephalometry in Orthodontics: 2D and 3D

Katherine Kula, Ahmed Ghoneima (editors)

he shift from 2D to 3D radiography has left some orthodontists unsure about how to effectively use cephalometrics to diagnose orthodontic problems and evaluate treatment. This book defines all cephalometric landmarks on a skull or spine in both 2D and 3D and then identifies them on radiographs. Each major cephalometric analysis is described in detail, and the linear or angular measures are shown pictorially for better understanding. Because many orthodontists pick specific measures from various cephalometric analyses to formulate their own analysis, measures are organized relative to the skeletal or dental structure and then compared or contrasted relative to diagnosis, growth, and treatment. Cephalometric norms are also discussed relative to treatment and esthetics. The final chapter shows the application of these measures to clinical cases. As radiology transitions from 2D to 3D, it is important to evaluate the efficacy and cost-effectiveness of each in diagnosis and treatment, and this book outlines all of the relevant concerns for daily practice.
Contents
Use of Cephalometrics • Radiography • Landmarks, Planes, and Angles • Frontal Cephalometry • Soft Tissue Analysis • Norms • Transition from 2D to 3D • Airway Analysis • Radiographic Superimposition • Predictions • Measuring Bone • Common Pathologic Findings • Cost • Clinical Cases

Asymmetry and Function

Paul Saulue, Sandro Palla, Ambra Michelotti, Jean-François Laluque

A certain degree of craniofacial asymmetry is normal. But at what point does craniofacial asymmetry need to be considered for treatment? Analysis of craniofacial asymmetry, related TMDs, and the consequences of treatment are relatively unknown, and therapeutic approaches involve all areas of the maxillofacial region and many overlapping specialties: orthodontics, prosthodontics, orthognathic surgery, and esthetics. This monograph delves into the issues surrounding treatment of asymmetry, including treatment planning with a focus on the prognosis and the therapeutic principles in each of the functional rehabilitation specialties. The authors synthesize the current knowledge in research and clinical expertise to provide essential guidance for how to understand and manage asymmetry cases.

Dental Anatomy and Morphology

Hilton Riquieri

This book conveys not only the practical knowledge of dental anatomy but also the art of recreating it in a dental prosthesis. The anatomy of each dental structure is described in detail and beautifully illustrated for visual reference. The author demonstrates that for every mophologic feature there is an explanation in nature, assigning significance to every minute feature of dental morphology. Organized by tooth and region, this book views morphology through a clinical lens and repeatedly draws connections between anatomical features and clinical concepts. The fundamental knowledge presented in this text is essential as a foundation for further clinical skills and will be useful for students and specialists alike.
Contents
Posterior Teeth • Maxillary Premolars • Maxillary Molars • Maxillary Posterior Teeth • Mandibular Premolars • Mandibular Molars • Mandibular Posterior Teeth • Anterior Teeth • Maxillary Incisors • Maxillary Canines • Maxillary Anterior Teeth

The Ortho-Perio Patient: Clinical Evidence & Therapeutic Guidelines

Theodore Eliades, Christos Katsaros (editors)

Although most orthodontic curricula provide courses on interdisciplinary orthodontic-periodontic treatment, there are still surprisingly few resources on the topic. Written by leading scholars in the field, this book provides a broad analysis of the topic from both the periodontal and orthodontic perspectives. The authors systematically analyze the scientific and clinical interactions of these specialties by reviewing all the available evidence and using case studies to demonstrate principles discussed in theory. The result is a text that outlines the treatment fundamentals and shows how to improve the therapeutic outcomes involving orthodontic-periodontic interventions.
Contents
Bone Biology • Oral Microbiota Changes During Orthodontic Treatment • Hygiene and Plaque Accumulation • Recession, Attached Gingiva, Advancement of Teeth, Grafting, and Periodontal Examination • Timing of Grafting • Periodontal Considerations in Orthodontic and Orthopedic Expansion • Surgical Crown Extension • Periodontal Examination of the Orthodontic Patient • High Labially/Palatally Impacted Incisor • Orthodontic Extrusion and Forced Eruption • Orthodontic Biomechanics in Patients with Periodontal Disease

ITI Treatment Guide, Vol 11; Digital Technologies for Oral Implantology

German Gallucci, Chris Evans, Ali Tahmaseb

This volume explores advancements of digital dental technology (DDT). The book begins by addressing the technology and tools necessary to incorporate DDT into a traditional workflow, along with the clinical steps required for data acquisition, such as imaging through CBCT, intraoral and extraoral scanning, and facial scanning. The software tools needed to interpret the digital data are also presented, and instructions on how to integrate data sets to virtually reconstruct the patient’s orofacial anatomy are given. This volume will help clinicians access the state of the art by evaluating current implant-prosthodontic protocols and identifying ways in which DDT can streamline workflows to achieve more predictable results.
