Soft Tissue Management: The Restorative Perspective -- Putting Concepts into Practice

Ariel J. Raigrodski

The soft tissue-restorative interface is where the artistry of the dental technician meets the clinical skill of the restorative dentists. The challenge for the clinician lies in managing the soft tissue frame, the essence of restorative dentistry. This compelling clinical monograph outlines a simplified approach to finish line design and preparation that is exceedingly practical. The author provides step-by-step instructions for each stage of therapy so that restorative dentists can understand how to manage the soft tissue frame, minimize trauma, and ensure a healthy and esthetic treatment outcome. Multiple cases are followed throughout the book, with individual chapters focusing on those portions of the case that illustrate the concepts elucidated in the chapter. Employing strict evidence-based principles, the author provides clinical tools for effective soft tissue management that will prevail even as technology in dentistry continues to evolve.

Cell-to-Cell Communication: Periodontal Regeneration

Bernd Stadlinger and Hendrik Terheyden

Unlike bone, which is constantly undergoing resorption followed by bone apposition, teeth are not subject to remodeling. They are remarkably resistant to physiologic remodeling processes. The reason for this is found in the periodontium and cementum. The mechanisms that take effect in this area and the effectiveness of the periodontal system -- consisting of gingiva, alveolar bone, periodontium, and cementum -- after injury can be visualized in this scientific 3D film. The visualization of these complex processes is of great interest for academic teaching as well as for the clinician, as the cellular interactions are presented in the context of four phases. For the first time, scanning electron microscopic images of the real cells can be visualized alongside computer-animated simulations, allowing the comparison of their characteristics.

The Biomechanical Foundation of Clinical Orthodontics

Charles J. Burstone and K. C. Choy

All orthodontic treatment modalities can be improved by applying sound biomechanics, yet most orthodontic therapy today is delivered without consideration of forces or force systems. Orthodontic hardware itself is only a means to an end point, such as tooth alignment, bone remodeling, or growth modification; the orthodontist can achieve these goals only by manipulating forces, regardless of the techniques used. Written by a world-renowned authority on the subject, this book teaches biomechanics in an easy-to-understand and engaging way, using universal examples outside 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 highly instructive 3D illustrations. Most chapters conclude with the presentation of several study problems, allowing the reader an opportunity to practice developing treatment plans using the biomechanics concepts discussed in each chapter (Answers are provided at the end of the book.) This book is sure to be an instant classic.

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.

Contents
The Dental Operating Microscope -- CBCT and Endodontics -- Nonsurgical Endodontic Procedures -- Retreatment -- Restorative Considerations -- Resorption -- Trauma Management -- Other Topics

Orofacial Pain and Headache, Second Edition

Yair Sharav and Rafael Benoliel

For many years, the study and treatment of orofacial pain have been considered as separate from the study and treatment of headaches, but the editors of this updated award-winning textbook take the philosophical stance that orofacial pain and headache must be considered together. The authors integrate knowledge across these disciplines to improve diagnostic accuracy and clinical management of chronic pain conditions and foster a beneficial collaboration between headache specialists and orofacial pain experts. The first chapters cover the diagnostic process, psychosocial modifying factors, and the anatomy and neurophysiology of the trigeminal nerve, but the bulk of the book is given over to a comprehensive review of the major clinical families of craniofacial pain. In this new edition, the authors place a focus on presenting clinical features and outlining treatment strategies, and the clinical case reports offer insight into the complexity of orofacial pain diagnosis and management. Because pharmacotherapy remains the primary treatment for most craniofacial pain, two chapters detail the pharmacology, efficacy, and side effects of commonly used drugs, although treatment options for neurosurgical and complementary and alternative medicine are also included. Finally, a new chapter addressing facial pain, headache, and sleep provides much-needed insight to this often-overlooked topic. The authors interweave an impressive body of scientific evidence with solid clinical experience to provide a timely and instructive addition to the pain literature.

Contents:
The Diagnostic Process -- Anatomy and Neurophysiology -- Measuring and Assessing Pain -- Psychologic Aspects -- Orofacial Pain, Headache, and Sleep -- Acute Orofacial Pain -- Otolaryngologic Aspects -- Persistent Orofacial Muscle Pain Related to TMDs, Headaches, and Fibromyalgia -- Pain and the Dysfunction of the TMJ -- Migraine and Possible Facial Variants -- Trigeminal Autonomic Cephalgias -- Neuropathic Orofacial Pain -- Neurosurgical Aspects -- Secondary Orofacial Pain and Headache -- Pharmacotherapy -- Complementary and Alternative Medicine

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.

The merits of a multidisciplinary approach are shown within a functional esthetic paradigm in which the prosthodontist, surgeon, orthodontist, and dental technician work as a close-knit team to ensure a predictable and reproducible result.
