Features: Used Book in Good Condition
By (author): Prasanna Sooriakumaran, Channa Jayasena, Professor Crispian Scully

Human Diseases is now often a mandatory component of training for dentists, and forms an important part in many undergraduate and professional exams. However, the amount of material to master can be overwhelming for students who need a manageable overview before they can apply the details learnt.

Providing a broad base in key areas, this text allows readers to rapidly acquire an understanding of the common and important acute and chronic diseases that dentists and dental students may encounter in their patients. The authors have significant experience in teaching the topics, and the text is carefully presented to highlight the key facts a reader should take from each chapter.

An essential revision guide for a range of audiences, this book will also be invaluable to medical students, house officers, GPs, nurses, and paramedics.

Atlas of Implant Dentistry and Tooth-Preserving Surgery: Prevention and Management of Complications

By (author): Zoran Staj?i?

This atlas is unique in comparing the two disciplines of dental implant surgery and tooth-preserving surgery with respect to common procedures, problems, and failures and in providing excellent guidance on the prevention and management of complications. The etiology of a wide variety of implant-related and non-implant-related complications and failures is carefully explained. Since many complications have their roots in oral and periodontal surgical maneuvers, these maneuvers are themselves discussed and extensively illustrated. The most frequently used tooth preservation procedures are also fully described, with emphasis on correct surgical technique as a means to avoid complications. The use of these procedures is constantly weighed against the effects of tooth removal and insertion of dental implants. The text is complemented by the inclusion of a substantial number of helpful references. While the atlas is intended primarily for dentists involved in outpatient implant dentistry and oral surgery, oral and maxillofacial surgeons will also find the descriptions of innovative techniques or maneuvers to be of interest, including those relating to the selection of incision and flap design and the sinus floor elevation techniques.

Global Diagnosis: A New Vision of Dental Diagnosis and Treatment Planning

By (author): J. William Robbins, Jeffrey S. Rouse

Incisal edge position is often considered the most important factor when treating complex restorative patients, yet the incisal edges can be in a perfect position and the final result can still fail due to unacceptable gingival levels. The emphasis in the Global Diagnosis system is to determine the etiology of the aberrant gingival positions prior to treatment. The power of the system is that the diagnosis leads to the treatment plan. This book explains the Global Diagnosis system and shows how to diagnose and treat patients based on five CORE questions. Subsequent chapters outline treatment options. The final chapter challenges the reader to treatment plan cases based on the five questions and other diagnostic information. Included is a CD with the CORE template, which allows readers to input diagnostic photographs and information to facilitate record keeping.

Fundamentals of Implant Dentistry: Surgical Principles: Volume 2

By (author): Peter K. Moy

Since the concept of osseointegration was introduced to the dental community more than 35 years ago by Professor P-I Brånemark, 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 prostheses; 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.
