Evidence-Based Dentistry for the Dental Hygienist

Edited by Julie Frantsve-Hawley

Like any other dental professional, dental hygienists must practice evidence-based dentistry (EBD) to provide the best care to their patients, whether it be through scaling and root planing, caries prevention, or patient education. This book is intended as a textbook for dental hygienists to learn the importance of EBD in the practice of dental hygiene as well as how to implement EBD practices and share EBD findings among office staff. As the dental knowledge base evolves and scientific discoveries are made, dental hygienists must understand how to seek out and evaluate findings and, if appropriate, apply them in their clinical practice, and this book provides all the necessary tools to do just that.

Esthetic Implant Therapy and Restoration in the Edentulous Maxilla: A Simplified Protocol

Karim Dada and Marwan Daas

Based on clinical, radiographic, and computer analysis, the simplified clinical protocols described in this book represent a revolution in the rehabiliation of the edentulous maxilla. The treatment strategy highlights a standardized esthetic analysis and focuses on the importance of the preparatory phases as well as of effective communication among the members of the treatment team. The authors outline the design principles and clinical methodology for different treatment options, step by step, and discuss indications for immediate loading, delivery of a fixed prosthesis shortly after the surgery, flapless surgery, and the all-on-four treatment concept, all of which can be used to limit postoperative difficulties for the patient. By simplifying the surgical and prosthetic protocols, the authors of this book have developed predictable esthetic treatment strategies that will be applicable to the largest number of patients and possible by the largest number of clinicians.

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.

Dental Technology—Volume 1: Anatomy and Orthodontics

Arnold Hohmann and Werner Hielscher

Dental technicians must have a comprehensive knowledge of dental anatomy, physiology, and pathology in order to work with dentists to produce successful dental prostheses. Much training for dental technicians is spent on honing sound technical skills, but this textbook lays out the theoretical foundation that is prerequisite for reproducing functional and esthetic teeth and replacement tissues for individual dentitions. By providing the medical and technical context for dental technology work and focusing on functional interrelation among the anatomical components, the authors establish the variables and criteria for measuring success. This book provides the high-level technical knowledge necessary to develop profession-specific competence and innovation in dental technology.

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.

Pediatric Head and Neck Pathology: Clinico-Pathologic and Therapeutic Principles

Robert O. Greer, Robert E. Marx, M. Sherif Said, and Lori D. Prok

The problems attendant to the accurate diagnosis for and proper management of the child with a tumor or disorder of the head and neck represent a substantial challenge to the clinician and pathologist. This work presents a much-needed discussion of both common and uncommon lesions affecting the head and neck region of children. It is designed using a unique, easy-reference format that should allow quick resolution of statistical issues and diagnostic quandaries related to the age, sex, site, and clinical presentation as well as the histopathology and molecular biology of a particular tumor or disorder. The pathogenesis of every lesion is included along with differential diagnostic considerations, management options, and prognosis. The central focus of most chapters is tissue type or a specific disease entity rather than anatomical location. This book will be of interest not only to pathologists but also to oral and maxillofacial surgeons, general dentists, pediatricians, pediatric general surgeons, otolaryngologists, and oncologists.
