This best-selling book has been updated to reflect recent advances in how cone beam computerized tomography is being used by dental practitioners in each of the various specialties. As before, the book introduces readers to all of the different ways of viewing CBCT data sets and guides clinicians in identifying familiar and unfamiliar anatomical landmarks in the three planes of section (axial, sagittal, and coronal). New to this edition are chapters on risk and liability, small volume anatomy, and endodontic applications of CBCT.
Prepare your students for success in their future careers with Burton’s Microbiology for the Health Sciences, 10e. Featuring a clear and friendly writing style that emphasizes the relevance of microbiology to a career in the health professions, the Tenth Edition offers a dramatically updated art program, new case studies that provide a real-life context for the content, the latest information on bacterial pathogens, an unsurpassed array of online teaching and learning resources, and much more.
To ensure content mastery, this market-leading book for the one-semester course clarifies concepts, defines key terms, and is packed with in-text learning tools that make the content inviting and easy to understand.
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.
Editors: Fayad, Mohamed, Johnson, Bradford R. (Eds.)Explains how CBCT can solve challenging problems in endodonticsShortens the learning curve in the use of CBCTOffers detailed guidance on image interpretationThis book is designed to provide the reader with a full understanding of the role of cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) in helping to solve many of the most challenging problems in endodontics. It will shorten the learning curve in application of this exciting imaging technique in a variety of contexts: difficult diagnostic cases, treatment planning, evaluation of internal tooth anatomy prior to root canal therapy, nonsurgical and surgical treatments, early detection and treatment of resorptive defects, and outcomes assessment.T
The ‘Basic Guide to Dental Materials’ is the essential guide to dental materials for all members of the dental team. Information is provided in a clear and concise manner, breaking the topic of dental materials down to the core basics.
This concise handbook covers a diversity of subjects encompassing the broad spectrum of craniofacial surgery. As a quick reference guide intended for the less experienced craniofacial audience (i.e., the medical students, residents and fellows), fundamental concepts and techniques in craniomaxillofacial surgery are presented and explained for an improved comprehension of this complex topic. In addition, these highly-focused chapters are well aided by high-resolution illustrations, diagrams and tables that enable easy understanding of the basic principles of the more commonly performed operations.R
Dentistry is a branch of medicine with its own peculiarities and very diverse areas of action, which means that it can be considered as an interdisciplinary field. BIODENTAL ENGINEERING II contains the full papers presented at the 2nd International Conference on Biodental Engineering (BioDENTAL 2012, Porto, Portugal, 7-8 December 2012). The contributions from 8 countries provide a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary coverage of the state-of-the-art in biodental engineering, and include the following subjects:• Aesthetics• Bioengineering• Biomaterials• Biomechanical disorders• Biomedical devices• Computational bio-imaging and visualization• Computational methods• Dental medicine• Experimental mechanics• Signal processing and analysis• Implantology• Minimally invasive devices and techniques• Orthodontics• Prosthesis and orthosis• Simulation• Software development• Telemedicine• Tissue engineering• Virtual realityBIODENTAL ENGINEERING II intends to cover recent advances in new techniques and technologies, and will be of interest to academics and others interested in biodental engineering.
Community health workers, educators and individuals from around the world use Where There Is No Dentist to help people care for their teeth and gums. This book’s broad focus makes it an invaluable resource. The author uses straightforward language and careful instructions to explain how to examine patients, diagnose common dental problems, make and use dental equipment, use local anesthetics, place fillings and remove teeth. There is also a special chapter on oral health and HIV/AIDS, which provides the dental worker with a detailed, well-illustrated discussion of the special problems faced by people living with HIV/AIDS and appropriate treatment.
Following in the footsteps of the previous two volumes, this third volume of the Alexander Discipline, focusing on unusual and difficult cases, demonstrates through the presentation of complete patient records how these principles can be used to achieve beautiful, functional, and stable results even in patients requiring creative treatment planning and treatment mechanics. In the situations presented in this book, there is no one right answer to the problem, and the orthodontist must have the confidence and relevant knowledge to formulate the treatment plan most suitable for each patient.
