Ceramics in Dentistry: Principles and Practice

J. Robert Kelly

This dramatic and living textbook changes the way clinicians can approach the science of ceramics. The author's straightforward approach is combined with an interactive visual program that features 3D models and embedded QR codes, which allow readers to link to video content and relevant websites. The author distills ceramic science to its essence, presents the relevant material characteristics, and addresses restorative concerns, including common fracture patterns for various sites, basic esthetic diagnostic information, and how to choose the best ceramic systems based on the clinical situation. In addition, he provides insight into the limitations of zirconia and zirconia-titanium implant abutments and demonstrates how to cut through manufacturer hype. This is the most fun you will have reading about ceramics.

Dental Implant Prosthetics: A Patient-Oriented Strategy

Stefan Wolfart

Although literature on the surgical aspects of dental implantology is abundant, there has not been a comprehensive and systematic text to address implant-supported prosthetic rehabilitation -- the ultimate goal of almost all dental implant surgeries. Written by a team of renowned authors, this book satisfies that need in exemplary fashion. With more than 2,000 illustrations and a full complement of restorative algorithms, it offers coherent, evidence-based strategies for prosthetically driven implant surgery and custom esthetic restoration, from initial planning through prosthetic delivery and follow-up. In addition, key aspect sod interactions between the implant surgeon and the prosthodontist, the prosthodontist and the dental technician, and the patient and the treatment team are discussed in detail. This book is a must for all clinicians involved in implant restoration and is destined to become a standard reference work.

Implants in the Esthetic Zone: A Step-by-Step Treatment Strategy

Ueli Grunder

Written by a highly respected and innovative surgeon, this book presents an unconventional implant treatment strategy for the esthetic restoration of anterior teeth that has proven effective over years of clinical experience. In addition to reviewing biologic principles, treatment planning, indications, esthetic analysis, and prosthetic options, the author focuses on factors such as gentle tooth extraction, precise implant positioning, criteria for one- and two-stage implant placement, and most importantly, a wide range of soft tissue management techniques in his approach. This book also presents techniques to improve the esthetic outcome of any dental implant therapy, regardless of treatment strategy. With more than 4,000 clinical images and illustrations of all procedures and techniques discussed, this tour de force by a leader in implant dentistry raises the reader's awareness of the high demands of implant dentistry and how clinicians can achieve optimal results.

Fundamentals of Implant Dentistry: Surgical Principles (Volume II)

Peter K. Moy, Patrick Palacci, Alessandro Pozzi, and John Beumer III

Since the concept of osseointegration was introduced to the dental community more than 35 years ago by Professor P-I Brεnemark, significant improvements have been achieved in patient evaluation, methods used to enhance the bone and soft tissues of potential implant sites, and surgical techniques to prepare the osteotomy sites and place the implants. In particular, CBCT scans and associated software planning programs now enable the implant team to analyze the bone sites in three dimensions in relation to the proposed contours of the implant-retained prosthesis; select implants of suitable diameter, length, and configuration; position them virtually in ideal locations; and fabricate surgical templates that enable surgeons to prepare the osteotomy sites and place the implants with great precision. These topics are thoroughly discussed from the perspective that an interdisciplinary approach will yield the most predictable outcomes for treatment of the dental implant patient. The authors address the sometimes controversial topic of immediate loading and provide useful insights regarding when this approach can achieve predictable outcomes and when it is to be avoided. The use of CAD/CAM technologies is emphasized throughout the text, and the latest developments and their use in this rapidly expanding arena are fully described.
