Mathematical Models for Dental Materials Research

 Dentistry  Comments Off on Mathematical Models for Dental Materials Research
Mar 302020
 

This book presents a mechanistic approach―mathematical modeling―for carrying out dental materials research. This approach allows researchers to go beyond the null hypothesis and obtain a solution that is more general and therefore predictive for conditions other than those considered in a study. Hence it can be used either on its own or to complement the commonly used statistical approach.
Through a series of practical problems with wide-ranging application, the reader will be guided on:
How to construct a mathematical model for the behavior of dental materials by making informed assumptions of the physical, chemical, or mechanical situation
How to simplify the model by making suitable simplifications
How to calibrate the model by calculating the values of key parameters using experimental results
How to refine the model when there are discrepancies between predictions and experiments
Only elementary calculus is required to follow the examples and all the problems can be solved by using MS Excel© spreadsheets.
This is an ideal book for dental materials researchers without a strong mathematical background who are interested in applying a more mechanistic approach to their research to give deeper insight into the problem at hand.
Advance praise for Mathematical Models for Dental Materials Research:
“This is a nice addition for research students on how to conduct their work and how to manage data analysis. It brings together a number of important aspects of dental materials investigations which has been missing in the literature. The practical examples make it much easier to understand.” – Michael F. Burrow, Clinical Professor in Prosthodontics, The University of Hong Kong
“The great strengths of this volume are the real world examples of dental materials research in the successive chapters. In turn, this is an outcome of the outstanding expertise of both authors. I warmly recommend this book to the dental biomaterials community worldwide.” – David C. Watts, Professor of Biomaterials Science, University of Manchester, UK

In addition, the author outlines the most suitable camera equipment and accessories, the correct technique and positioning, and the protocol for digital image management to ensure high-quality images. This book will help dentists appreciate the value and scope of digital photography in general dentistry and allow them to seamlessly incorporate the equipment and techniques into their clinical practice and workflow. An essential book that expands the place of clinical photography and underscores its role in improving clinical records and communication.

Contents
1. The Digital Image in Dentistry
2. Uses for Clinical Photography
3. Principles of Photography
4. Camera Equipment
5. Mirrors, Retractors, and Contrastors
6. A Guide to Standard Views

Color Atlas of Oral Diseases: Diagnosis and Treatment (4th Edition)

 Dentistry, Medical Atlas  Comments Off on Color Atlas of Oral Diseases: Diagnosis and Treatment (4th Edition)
Dec 242019
 

A seemingly boundless wealth of exquisite images for the diagnosis and therapy of diseases of the oral cavity, and systemic diseases with oral manifestations

This remarkable reference work is the result of decades of experience on the part of a top specialist in oral medicine, George Laskaris. The book draws heavily from the singular dedication with which the author has been documenting details of the pathology of the diseases of thousands of patients he has treated over the past decades, and also capturing these on camera in exquisite photographs.

Key Features:

  • More than 1,000 close-up photographs, in high resolution and full color, from the author’s vast collection of more than 130,000 images
  • Concise explanatory texts supporting the images
  • Consistent organization of crucial information, including guidelines for diagnostic and therapeutic approaches to the patient with oral disease, basic characteristics of the diseases, differential diagnoses, histopathologic findings, lab findings, and therapeutic strategies
  • An appendix including tables of differential diagnosis based on morphology and color of lesions, and tables with biopsy considerations

Laskaris’ Color Atlas of Oral Diseases: Diagnosis and Treatment is certain to be an essential reference not only for physicians and dentists involved in the diagnosis and therapy of oral diseases but also for dermatologists, otorhinolaryngologists, pediatricians, internists, hematologists, and rheumatologists evaluating the oral manifestations of systemic diseases.

Genetic Basis of Oral Health Conditions

 Dentistry, Genetics  Comments Off on Genetic Basis of Oral Health Conditions
Dec 182019
 

This book explains the genetic basis of a wide range of dental disorders, including dental caries, periodontitis, congenital anomalies, malocclusions, orofacial pain, dental implant failure, and cancer. Such conditions are typically multifactorial or complex, with involvement of more than one gene as well as environmental influences. A sound grasp of this framework is ever more important, given the emergence of consumer genomics, including direct-to-consumer genetic testing. Dental professionals now need to understand why one person is susceptible to a particular oral health condition while a first-degree relative either does not develop the condition or does so in a less severe form. Knowledge of how genes operate in the susceptible host is essential if patients are to be offered accurate advice about their risks. The information provided in this book will assist in the delivery of effective personalized dental care through optimization of preventive strategies. It will enable the practitioner to explain the extent to which a patient’s condition is pure “bad luck”, whether that bad luck can be changed by behavioral choices, and how many of our behaviors are influenced by genes.

Infection Control in the Dental Office: A Global Perspective

 Dentistry  Comments Off on Infection Control in the Dental Office: A Global Perspective
Dec 022019
 

This book reviews the principles of infection control and the guidelines and standards of care in multiple countries, discussing them within the context of the practice of dentistry. The aim is to enable dental practitioners to ensure that the appropriate measures are adopted for each patient contact, thereby minimizing the risk of transmission of infection – a goal that is becoming ever more important given the threats posed by new or re-emerging infectious diseases and drug-resistant infections. Readers will find information and guidance on all aspects of infection control within the dental office: hand and respiratory hygiene, use of personal protective equipment, safe handling of sharps and safe injection practices, management of occupational exposures, maintenance of dental unit water quality, surface disinfection, and the cleaning and sterilization of dental instruments. Infection Control in the Dental Office will be an invaluable asset for all dental practitioners, including dentists, dental specialists, dental hygienists, and dental assistants.
