ITI Treatment Guide Volume 10—Implant Therapy in the Esthetic Zone: Current Treatment Modalities and Materials for Single-Tooth Replacements

Vivianne Chappuis and William Martin

This latest volume in the ITI Treatment Guide series starts out with the most recent statements and recommendations from the 5th ITI Consensus Conference, followed by a detailed protocol for the evaluation and treatment planning of patients with esthetic demands requiring single-tooth replacement with a dental implant. Various surgical situations commonly encountered in the esthetic zone are presented along with recommended treatment protocols. In addition, the many aspects of clinical management of the planned implant site (before and after placement) are discussed including the use of provisional prostheses, laboratory communication, abutment design, restorative material selection, and delivery of the definitive restoration. This volume provides a comprehensive, evidence-based approach to single-tooth replacement in the esthetic zone, from consultation to follow-up, with a focus on current treatment modalities and the materials that present-day implant dentistry has to offer.

Bicon Short Implants: A 30-Year Perspective

Vincent J. Morgan (Editor)

This book offers not only a factual history of dental implants and the science of osseointegration but also a 30-year retrospective look at the Bicon dental implant with its unique and essentially unchanged design. Clinical examples illustrate its unmatched clinical capabilities and unique macrogeometric design, which lends itself to simple, predictable, and effective techniques that eliminate the need for bone grafting procedures and complicated prosthetic restorations in many cases.

Color in Dentistry: A Clinical Guide to Predictable Esthetics

Stephen J. Chu, Rade D. Paravina, Irena Sailer, Adam J. Mieleszko

Predictable shade matching in dentistry remains a significant challenge for clinicians in daily practice. Color is an important aspect in the esthetics of teeth and dental restoration fabrication, and color discrepancy can mar restorative results, even when other aspects (marginal fit, occlusion, and morphology) are adequate. This book provides step-by-step protocols to help dental professionals accurately match, communicate, and reproduce the color of teeth and gingiva. The authors demonstrate how to implement color science in simple problem-solving instructions for predictable esthetics in both clinical protocols and laboratory techniques. An extensive presentation of clinical cases is included to illustrate the use of recommended protocols in general practice. An outstanding contribution to the practice and theory of color management in contemporary dentistry.

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.

Anesthesia Considerations for the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon

Matthew Mizukawa, Samuel McKenna, and Luis Vega

Office-based anesthesia administration is becoming more complex as people live longer and with more comorbid diseases. The purpose of this book is to guide practitioners along the decision tree as they encounter a wide spectrum of ages, diseases, and conditions and to strengthen the margin of safety of office-based anesthesia administration. It is organized into three sections. The first section provides a review of the principles of anesthesia, including the pharmacology of commonly used office-based anesthetic agents, monitoring of the patient, preoperative evaluation, the airway, local anesthesia, analgesia, and effective use of antibiotics. The major organ systems of the body are reviewed in section two, and the most common comorbid conditions that affect these systems are described in terms of their pathophysiology, diagnosis, management, and anesthesia-related considerations. Section three reviews patient groups that warrant special consideration in the admini-stration of office-based anesthesia, such as geriatric, pediatric, pregnant, and obese patients. Spiral-bound and featuring tabs for quick and easy reference, this important book belongs on the shelf of every dentist who provides anesthesia in the office setting.

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.

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.

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.
