Understanding Bruxism: Current Knowledge and Practice

Jean-François Laluque, Daniel Brocard, Emmanuel d’Incau

Bruxism is a common parafunction, and over the last 15 years the profession has become aware of just how destructive it can be to the masticatory structures when left untreated. However, because it is still seen as a multifaceted phenomenon that is difficult to treat, many practitioners assume that it is incurable. This book addresses these doubts and concerns by outlining the various etiologies and aggravating factors of bruxism, distinguishing the different types of bruxism, and demonstrating how to complete a differential diagnosis. Then, in keeping with the latest evidence, the authors promote a more conservative approach to treatment and outline which treatment strategies to use in different situations.

Introduction to Metal-Ceramic Technology, Third Edition

W. Patrick Naylor

For a quarter of a century, this classic textbook has introduced students of dentistry and dental technology to the theory and step-by-step technical procedures for physically constructing an esthetic metal-ceramic restoration. As always, it illustrates how to achieve esthetic results to rival those of all-ceramic materials through treatment planning, clinical procedures, and dental laboratory steps executed at their highest levels. New to this revised edition are an expanded illustrated glossary, a simplified four-step buttonless technique, fresh analysis of bonding mechanisms, and a new chapter on the esthetic porcelain margin restoration (both direct and indirect methods of fabrication).

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.

Bioaesthetics in Oral Rehabilitation

Loris Prosper

This book describes a methodology to ensure biomimetic restorations that are in harmony with the remaining natural dentition. All stages of the treatment process are covered, from diagnosis and the development of the treatment plan to cementation of the definitive restoration. Special emphasis is placed on the importance of a multidisciplinary approach.

Sliwowski Overdenture System (DVD-ROM)

Christoph T. Sliwowski

This DVD presents a restoration technique that stabilizes complete dentures on a prefabricated prosthetic bar supported by two implants. This approach allows for immediate prosthetics without the need for custom retention elements. Immediate loading is possible because the retention bar ensures primary stability and the locking mechanism eliminates unwanted retraction forces.

Esthetic and Restorative Dentistry: Material Selection and Technique, Third Edition

Douglas A. Terry, Willi Geller

Restorative dentistry has seen dramatic advances in recent years, especially with the use of digital technologies, and this book provides the most up-to-date information on enhanced developments, materials, and techniques that have emerged since the publication of the second edition, offering the reader a completely updated, revised, and newly illustrated overview of modern esthetic and restorative dentistry complete with tutorial videos. New topics include web-based communication with the laboratory, indirect composite chairside CAD/CAM restorations, a comparison of digital and conventional techniques, the resin composite injection technique, as well as updated information on composites and ceramic systems, including esthetic zirconia. New cases illustrate the maintenance of esthetic restorative materials, esthetic contouring, immediate dentin sealing, and novel surgical techniques such as lip repositioning, connective tissue grafting, and ridge preservation with collagen membranes. Dr Terry expanded his team of editorial reviewers to include the best minds in research and clinical practice, and the final product is a testament to his dedication to patient satisfaction and treatment success. The techniques demonstrated in this book will no doubt elevate your practice to the next level.
