Mar 202018

Practical, comprehensive, and concise, the Oxford Handbook of Integrated Dental Biosciences has been designed to reflect problem-based teaching scenarios, with extensive diagrams and illustrations to aid clinical understanding of the main text. Summary and key point boxes have been incorporated throughout to allow quick reference and easy assimilation of the content.

Formally known as the Oxford Handbook of Applied Dental Sciences, this second edition has been completely rewritten by a brand new author team, to closely integrate the non-clinical and clinical aspects of dentistry. Featuring separate sections detailing the relevant clinical application and putting the science into context, this handbook is ideal for dental students, dental trainees studying for higher qualifications, and practitioners as a useful aide memoire.

About the Author
Hugh Devlin, Professor of Restorative Dentistry, University of Manchester, UK,Rebecca Craven, Senior Lecturer in Dental Public Health, University of Manchester, UK

Professor Hugh Devlin has taught at the University of Manchester for over 35 years and still retains his enthusiasm for teaching and research. He received the IADR Distinguished Scientist Award (2011) for Research in Prosthodontics and Implants. Hugh has over a hundred research publications, many of which explore the link between basic dental science and their clinical application.

Dr Craven worked in general practice, community and hospital dentistry before spending over 25 years in university research and teaching. Studying for the award of Fellowship in Dental Surgery meant returning to study bioscience again after several years of clinical practice and sparked a lifelong passion to integrate the two disciplines. She now runs postgraduate programmes in research and dental public health, also leading the first year of the undergraduate programme. Integrating bioscience with clinical care and seeking to apply, appropriately, the best evidence, is at the heart of the Manchester programme and of this book.

Mar 202018

Learn to build successful working relationships with your patients

Psychology and Dentistry: Mental Health Aspects of Patient Care is a practical guide to an often-neglected aspect of dentistry-the contributions of the behavioral sciences to dental research and practice. Dr. William A. Ayer, Professor of Behavioral Sciences at Nova Southeastern University College of Dental Medicine in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, presents a comprehensive textbook that’s an essential study aid for students preparing for their National Dental Board Examinations and a valuable classroom resource for dental school faculty. This unique book identifies the everyday concerns of dentists, dental students, and dental hygienists, offering proven strategies for patient management and for building—and maintaining—a successful dentist-patient relationship.

Psychology and Dentistry examines the contributions of the behavioral sciences to the practice of dentistry, drawing subject matter from a wide range of disciplines that include psychology, sociology, education, anthropology, economics, epidemiology, health services, and public health. The book is a practical guide to developing the necessary skills to conduct effective patient interviews, for teaching patients to manage their dental fears and anxieties, and for dealing with patients who need counseling from mental health professionals. It also addresses special issues that have become relevant to dentists and their staffs in recent years, including child abuse and neglect, spousal violence, elder abuse, aging and changes associated with age, death and dying, and bereavement.

Psychology and Dentistry examines:

behavior therapies
behavioral interventions
management techniques for patients with acute and/or chronic pain
how to train patients to manage their oral habits
how to get patients to comply with health care recommendations
pain perception and pain expression
the therapeutic use of hypnosis
how to make psychological referrals for patients
the effect of stress on dentists and dental students
and much more!
Psychology and Dentistry: Mental Health Aspects of Patient Care is an essential resource for anyone working in the dental field. The book’s practical approach and unique insights are invaluable for helping you develop healthy relationships with your patients.

Hydroxyapatite and Other Calcium Orthophosphates

 Dentistry  Comments Off on Hydroxyapatite and Other Calcium Orthophosphates
Mar 152018

As the inorganic constituents of skeletons, dentine and the enamel of teeth in all vertebrates, as well as antlers of male deer, calcium orthophosphates (CaPO4) appear to be the key materials to sustain all life on Earth. Therefore, biologically relevant CaPO4 possess all the necessary features of the biomaterials, such as biocompatibility, bioactivity, bioresorbability, osteoconductivity, osteoinductivity, and appear to be non-toxic, non-inflammatory and non-immunogenic. In this book, the author presents current state-of-the-art applications of CaPO4 as bioceramics, deposits (coatings, films and layers) and in dentistry. Topics discussed include chemical composition and preparation, forming and shaping, sintering and firing for CaPO4-based bioceramics, chemical composition and preparation, pre- and post-deposition treatments for CaPO4-based deposits, followed by the detailed description of their major properties, biomedical applications and in vivo behavior. The detailed description of current CaPO4 applications in dentistry both for dental caries prevention and as various types of dental treatments is given in the last section of this book.

In this highly-anticipated new edition, the editors maintain the same focus on high-level coverage of the disease aetiology and process, clinical management best-practice, and wider public health issues connected with dental caries management, including an enhanced focus on the ‘caries control concept’. The aim is to link theory with clinical performance, making prevention, diagnosis and restorative procedures evidence based. The structure of the book has been completely overhauled, with the same coverage streamlined in order to distil information effectively.

The book is divided into six main sections:

An overview of the disease and its prevalence
The caries lesion and its biological determinants
Controlling dental caries
Operative intervention
Caries control in special populations
With contributions from international experts in research and clinical practice, the third edition of Dental Caries is an unrivalled guide to tooth decay, and a must-have resource for undergraduate and postgraduate students in restorative dentistry as well as all practitioners looking to develop their clinical skills.
