Oral radiology: principles and interpretation / [edited by] Stuart C. White and Michael J. Pharoah.
D 617.6622 O6 W
With more than 1,000 high-quality radiographs and illustrations, Oral Radiology: Principles and Interpretation, 7th Edition visually demonstrates the basic principles of oral and maxillofacial radiology along with their clinical application. First, you’ll gain a solid foundation in radiation physics, radiation biology, and radiation safety and protection. Then you’ll learn intraoral and extraoral imaging techniques, including specialized techniques such as MRI and CT. The second half of the book focuses on how to recognize the radiographic features of pathologic conditions and interpret radiographs accurately. This edition also includes new chapters on forensics and cone-beam imaging.

Title: Study on the pathogenesis of Bisphosphonate-related Osteonecrosis of the jaws
Abstract: Bisphosphonate-related osteonecrosis of the jaws (BRONJ) is a rare but severe clinical complication related with Bisphosphonates (Bps) therapy, which is widely used for management a series of conditions accompanied by pathologically high bone resorption, such as Paget’s disease, osteoporosis and bone metastasis. And so far the underlying pathogenesis of BRONJ is still unknown. According to the relevant researches, multiple correlating factors might get involved in the development of BRONJ, including the efficacy and cumulative amount of Bps, dental surgical procedures as well as dental infection. The aim of the present study is 1) to assess the significance of periapical infection in the development of Bisphosphonate-related osteonecrosis of the jaws and further explore its underlying pathophysiological mechanisms; 2) To assess the significance of Actinomyces onto the development of BRONJ. 80 12-weeks-old female C57BL/6N ovariectomized mice will be used in the study, 20 animals in each group. Clinical examination, Micro-CT scanning, immunohistochemistry will be used to observe morphological and histopathologic changes of jaw bones in this study.
Presenter: Mr. Huo Lei, PhD Candidate (1:15 p.m. to 1:45 p.m.)
Title: Effect of bisphosphonate on periodontal condition in compromised host
Abstract: Bisphosphonate related osteonecrosis of the jaw (BRONJ) has been reported as a serious complication on the patients received bisphosphonate treatment. The usage of this drug is mainly 1) low dose to enhance bone strength in postmenopausal women and aged people; 2) high dose to prevent and treat malignant skeletal complications in cancer patients. Although it is widely accepted that high-dose bisphosphonate is a high-risk factor in inducing osteonecrosis, some studies demonstrated potential advantage of low-dose bisphosphonates in inhibiting alveolar bone resorption in progressive periodontitis. The objectives of this study are to investigate the effect of high and low doses bisphosphonates on periodontal condition using an ovariectomized rat model, and the risk of high/low doses bisphosphonates in inducing osteonecrosis in compromised host with progressive periodontitis. Clinical examination, Micro-CT, TUNEL staining, histology, immunohistochemistry and immunofluorescence labeling will be used to investigate morphological and histopathologic changes of jawbones under various experimental conditions.

Surgical and radiologic anatomy for oral implantology / Louie Al-Faraje.
D 617.674 A38 s
Anatomical textbooks and atlases often fail to meet the clinical demands of defining intraoperative structures for oral implantologists because of the overwhelmingly detailed minutia. Because certain anatomical landmarks are hard to illustrate in a diagram format, students and professionals can be confused when confronted with actual specimens in the dissecting room or in the operatory. This book, however, shows the structures of the maxilla, the mandible, and the nasal cavity as they actually exist in the dissected or live body, through the presentation of cadaver specimens and clinical cases. Several of the chapters include full-page images of specific cadaver sections with all the relevant anatomical parts labeled for convenience. Cone beam computed tomography images are also presented to show how this technology can be used to measure the bone density, the width of the alveolar ridge, and the exact distance available for implant placement under or above certain anatomical landmarks prior to implant selection. This book will simplify the learning and execution of implant-related surgical procedures in a region of the body that presents special topographic and anatomical difficulties.
Endodontology : an integrated biological and clinical view / Domenico Ricucci and José F. Siqueira.
D 617.626 R54
This unique book is a serious study of clinical endodontics that underscores the biologic foundation of endodontic treatment and seeks to bridge the gap between basic endodontic knowledge and advanced endodontic biology. Written by a well-established clinician and a researcher with extensive background in endodontic microbiology, this book combines invaluable histologic illustrations of endodontic disease with a robust clinical text that (1) describes the pathologies affecting dental tissues as well as their reactions to the clinical procedures and (2) uses clinical microbiology to explain the observed phenomena. Treatments of complex endodontic infections are presented for both vital and nonvital pulp therapy, and the influence of periradicular pathology are addressed in detail. Moreover, the authors wade into controversial topics with detailed and comprehensive analysis, including the implications of lateral canals on treatment and the causes of treatment failures and how to avoid them. The purpose of this book is to improve endodontic treatment, and the authors demonstrate how an in-depth knowledge of endodontic infections can help clinicians to synthesize the data from patient examinations in order to visualize what has taken place, understand the processes at work, and predict what will occur with the patient. An essential clinical text for comprehensive endodontic study.
