Oral health surveys : basic methods/ World Health Organization.

D 617.65 W92 o

Basic oral health surveys provide a sound basis for assessing the current oral health status of a population and its future needs for oral health care. The World Health Organization (WHO) has a long tradition of epidemiological survey methodology, which includes a description of the diagnostic criteria that can be readily understood and applied in public health programmes worldwide.

The WHO manual Oral Health Surveys – Basic Methods has encouraged countries to conduct standardized oral health surveys that are comparable internationally. The WHO Global Oral Health Data Bank collates the data gathered through country surveys on the burden of oral disease and WHO recommended statistical analysis on key indicator age groups of children and adults.

This manual aims to encourage national oral health survey planners to standardize measurements of oral diseases and conditions that are important for planning and evaluation of oral health programmes, as well as to ensure the comparability of data collected in a wide range of environments. It does this by applying the WHO global approach to chronic disease surveillance to an operational model for integration of oral health into chronic disease surveillance systems.

Title:The role of TRAF-interacting protein (TRAIP) during craniofacial development

Abstract: The control of cell proliferation is crucial for the craniofacial development. But the mechanism of how the cell proliferation is coordinated during the development remains to be elucidated. The TRAF-interacting protein (TRAIP) is an E3 ubiquitin ligase, which plays a role in cell proliferation and differentiation. It has also found been to interact with the cell cycle related protein PCNA. In this study the expression pattern of TRAIP during different stages of craniofacial development will be investigated and its potential relationship with cell proliferation will be evaluated. Its potential upstream and downstream signals will also be explored.

Title: De novo bioengineering of a pulp replacement using stem cell-seeded RGD alginate based micro environments

Abstract: The aim of the study was to create a three-dimensional pulp stem cell seeded construct infused with inductive tissue specific growth factors VEGF121 and FGF-2 in an alginate scaffold supplemented with dental pulp stem cells (DPSC) and human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVEC). The combination of these elements into a single system in the core of the construct for inducing angiogenesis and further coating the construct with another layer thereby initiating dentinogenesis is an innovative design for the formation of de novo pulp tissue in vitro. Four study groups with different permutation and combination were fabricated replicating the gutta-percha shape, later analyzed for proliferation, viability and growth factor release profile. The results of the first study show significant difference in groups supplemented with morphogens with a p value a potential for dental pulp regeneration

Ultrasonic periodontal debridement: theory and technique / Marie D. George, Timothy G. Donley and Philip M. Preshaw.


D 617.6642 G34

Ultrasonic Periodontal Debridement: Theory and Technique is the first textbook to focus exclusively on this fundamentally important component of periodontal therapy. George, Donley, and Preshaw provide a comprehensive resource for dental students, dental hygiene and therapy students, and periodontal residents, as well as practicing dental hygienists and dentists who are looking to increase their familiarity and skills with ultrasonic instrumentation.


The opening section describes the basic foundational knowledge of periodontal debridement; how it differs from and supersedes scaling and root planing, how it fits with modern concepts of periodontal disease pathogenesis, and includes a comparison of periodontal debridement instrumentation modalities. Section 2 describes ultrasonic technology, the variety of tip designs that are available, and provides practical guidance in appropriate tip selection. Section 3 focuses on the clinical applications of ultrasonic periodontal debridement, including patient assessment, medical and dental considerations, and provides specific guidance in clinical debridement techniques. Included are technique modules for each quadrant as well as case studies using real-world examples of situations likely to be encountered in everyday clinical practice, including ultrasonic instrumentation around dental implants.


Disinfection of root canal systems: the treatment of apical periodontitis / edited by Nestor Cohenca.


D 617.6262 D61

Disinfection of Root Canal Systems: The Treatment of Apical Periodontitis is an evidence-based manual that describes root canal anatomy, the endodontic biofilm, and the role of disinfection before presenting the most up-to-date methods of irrigation and disinfection. Individual chapters are devoted to each method, such as positive pressure irrigation, apical negative pressure irrigation, sonic activation, photodynamic therapy, laser technology, and ozonization and electrochemical activation. Clinical photographs throughout show proper irrigation and disinfection techniques.


Essentials of oral and maxillofacial surgery / edited by M. Anthony (Tony) Pogrel, Karl-Erik Kahnberg, Lars Andersson.


D 617.672 E78

Essentials of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery is the key textbook for all undergraduate dentistry students and trainees starting out in oral and maxillofacial surgery, oral surgery and surgical dentistry. Condensed and revised from the major reference work Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, all revisions have been made by the editors in order to bring the text up-to-date and accessible for a student audience.


The book’s coverage extends from basic principles such as patient evaluation, radiographic imaging, and surgical instruments, to specific conditions and procedures, from tooth extraction and endodontic surgery to trauma, implants, dentofacial deformities and orofacial pain.
