Dental Composite Materials for Direct Restorations


This book covers both basic scientific and clinically relevant aspects of dental composite materials with a view to meeting the needs of researchers and practitioners. Following an introduction on their development, the composition of contemporary composites is analyzed. A chapter on polymerization explains the setting reactions and light sources available for light-cured composites. The quality of monomer-to-polymer conversion is a key factor for material properties. Polymerization shrinkage along with the associated stress remains among the most challenging issues regarding composite restorations. A new classification of dental composites is proposed to offer more clinically relevant ways of differentiating between commercially available materials. A review of specific types of composites provides an insight into their key issues. The potential biological issues of dental composites are reviewed in chapters on elution of leachable substances and cariogenicity of resin monomers. Clinical sections focus on material placement, finishing procedures, and the esthetics and clinical longevity of composite restorations. Bonding to tooth tissues is addressed in a separate chapter, as is the efficiency of various composite repair methods. The final chapter discusses future perspectives on dental composite materials.

Preparing for Dental Practice


Features: Preparing for dental practice
By (author): F. J. Trevor Burke, Ruth Freeman

The majority of dental students will choose general practice as their career path. This book prepares final year undergraduates for the difficult transition into primary care. It is essential that students understand how the different areas in primary care can be integrated. As a result, dental schools, usually in the final year of the course, are moving towards general practice by providing comprehensive patient care courses. This book provides a background to the holistic approach senior students are encouraged to use when identifying treatment needs, covering the integration of treatment and its planning, aspects of dental team building, practice selection and management matters.
Although this book is aimed primarily at undergraduates on the dental primary care courses, it will also prove invaluable to vocational trainees and those thinking about going into practice. The newly qualified dental practitioner will also find the text helpful, as there is no other title for them to consult which covers the range of material in this book.

Evidence-Based Implant Dentistry


Features: Evidence Based Implant Dentistry 2016

This book covers all aspects of implant dentistry, presenting up-to-date information that reflects the highest level of scientific evidence as presented in the specialized literature. Among the topics addressed by expert authors are the prognosis of natural tooth versus implant restorations, bone response to implant treatment, placement and loading time, implant design and length, platform design, implant abutments, prosthodontic treatment, reconstructive surgery, and periimplantitis.

The amount of data available for the clinician working in the field of implantology is huge and constantly increasing. The task of remaining abreast of the latest evidence and applying it effectively in clinical practice is further hindered by the fact that many scientific papers make contradictory claims and contain methodological flaws and biases that generate confusion and lack of reliability. Against this background, Evidence-Based Implant Dentistry will serve the reader as a dependable and scientifically supported guide to current implant treatment and key issues in the field.

Iatrogenic Effects of Orthodontic Treatment: Decision-Making in Prevention, Diagnosis, and Treatment


Features: Iatrogenic Effects of Orthodontic Treatment Decision Making in Prevention Diagnosis and Treatment
By (author): Roberto Justus

This book is a well-illustrated guide to the iatrogenic effects of orthodontic treatment that provides practical information on orthodontic diagnosis, treatment planning, and post-treatment retention and highlights preventive measures to avoid complaints and lawsuits. It is divided into three parts, on white spot lesions, periodontal deterioration, and external apical root resorption (EARR). The reader will learn a wide variety of invaluable skills and strategies, such as how to minimize the risk of enamel decalcifications as a result of orthodontic treatment; how to deproteinize the enamel surface and bond brackets with hybrid glass ionomer cement; how to avoid lower incisor proclination and still achieve ideal long-term alignment; and how to apply strategies to minimize orthodontically induced EARR. Iatrogenic Effects of Orthodontic Treatment will be an excellent aid for both orthodontists and pediatric dentists.

Engineering Mineralized and Load Bearing Tissues (Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology)


Features: Engineering Mineralized and Load Bearing Tissues Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology

This book offers a comprehensive overview of current challenges and strategies to regenerate load-bearing and calcified human tissues, including bone, cartilage,tendon, ligaments and dental structures (dentin, enamel, cementum and periodontal ligament). Tissue engineering has long held great promises as an improved treatment option for conditions affecting mineralized and load-bearing structures in the body. Although significant progress has been achieved in recent years, a number of challenges still exist.

Scaffold vascularization, new biofabrication methods (3D printing, lithography, microfabrication), peptide conjugation methods, interface engineering, scaffold mechanical properties, iPS cells, organs-on-a-chip, are some of the topics discussed in this book. More specially, in the first section readers will find an overview of emerging biofabrication methods. In section 2, applied strategies for regeneration of (2.1) bone, cartilage and ligament, as well as (2.2) dentin, cementum, enamel and periodontal ligament are discussed across 14 chapters.

While other volumes have addressed the regeneration of individual tissues, or exclusively focused on different regenerative strategies, the focus of this work is to bring together researchers integrating backgrounds in materials sciences, engineering, biology, mechanics, fluidics, etc, to address specific challenges common to regeneration of several load-bearing and calcified tissues. Therefore, this book provides a unique platform to stimulate progress in the regeneration of functional tissue substitutes.

We envision that this book will represent a valuable reference source for university and college faculties, post?doctoral research fellows, senior graduate students, and researchers from R&D laboratories in their endeavors to fabricate biomimetic load bearing tissues.

High-Density Lipoproteins: Structure, Metabolism, Function and Therapeutics


By (author): Anatol Kontush, M. John Chapman

A complete guide to the role of high-density lipoproteins (HDL) in new and emerging therapies

With high-density lipoproteins (HDL) playing an increasing role in cardiovascular disease prevention, there is a growing need for an in-depth look at HDL and its clinical value. This book summarizes the current state of knowledge in the field, providing for the first time a comprehensive, systematic, stylistically coherent, and up-to-date review of the composition, structure, heterogeneity, metabolism, epidemiology, genetics, and function of HDL.

Divided into three main parts, High-Density Lipoproteins first examines normal HDL particles, then describes defective HDL, and finally addresses the therapeutic normalization of subnormal levels and defective biological activities of this lipoprotein class. The book highlights the functional properties of HDL, which are relevant to the pathophysiology of atherosclerosis and thrombosis, and discusses the compositional and metabolic heterogeneity of HDL particles.

Readers will come away with a clear understanding of the role of HDL in biological processes, the potential value of functional HDL as a therapeutic target, and how current and emerging therapies are poised to influence the treatment of heart disease in the future.
