The Clinician’s Handbook for Dental Sleep Medicine

Ken Berley, Steve Carstensen

It has been estimated that 20 million Americans suffer from moderate to severe OSA, and at least one patient in five has mild OSA. The primary treatment prescribed by sleep physicians is CPAP, but patient compliance with this therapy is unacceptably low, between 25% and 50%. There is a significant opportunity for dentists to provide a viable alternative therapy—oral appliance therapy (OAT). OAT results in much better adherence to therapy than CPAP, and while OAT is not as efficacious as CPAP, this increased compliance results in comparable therapeutic results. Currently, a board-certified sleep physician is the only medical professional qualified to diagnose OSA and other sleep-related breathing disorders (SRBDs), so dentists must coordinate with a sleep physician to provide OAT. This book is the how-to guide, a gateway to a successful dental sleep medicine practice. Written by two experts in the field, it clearly delineates the dentist’s role in the treatment of SRBDs and gives practical advice for how to incorporate dental sleep medicine into an existing dental practice, not to mention how to work with sleep physicians to best support patient care. In addition to step-by-step instructions for examination, appliance selection, and follow-up care, complications of OAT, legal issues, and medical insurance and Medicare considerations are included to fully prepare the dentist for the journey into dental sleep medicine.

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.

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.

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.

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.
