Orthodontic and surgical management of impacted teeth / Vincent G. Kokich, David P. Mathews.

D 617.644 K7


Impacted teeth are a commonplace encounter in dental practice, yet currently there is not a comprehensive book detailing the surgical treatments and orthodontic therapy to erupt or manage these teeth. Written by arguably the best orthodontist in the world and his periodontist colleague of almost 40 years, this text covers the various types of impactions an orthodontist and surgeon will encounter, including maxillary central incisors, maxillary canines (both labially and palatally impacted), mandibular canines, premolars, and mandibular molars. Each chapter focuses on a specific impacted tooth and how it can be surgically uncovered and orthodontically moved. The book also presents a chapter on failed cases, explaining what went wrong and how to prevent such negative outcomes when treating similar cases. Ideal for any dental practitioner who treats impacted teeth, this comprehensive and up-to-date book is a fitting legacy for Dr Kokich, whose impact within the field of orthodontics will be felt for years to come.



Open-bite malocclusion: treatment and stability / edited by Guilherme Janson, Fabrício Valarelli.

D 617.644 O61 J


Open-Bite Malocclusion: Treatment and Stability presents the etiology, treatment, and its stability of anterior open bite malocclusion in the early, mixed, and permanent dentitions. Special emphasis is devoted to orthodontic treatment and its stability in the permanent dentition because this is the time when treatment of open bite presents greater relapse. Appropriate for clinicians, orthodontic residents, and dental students, Open-Bite Malocclusion covers the most simple treatment approaches to the most complex, from orthodontic devices to tooth extraction to surgery.

Title: Potential Applications of Proanthocyanidin for Reparative Therapies in Dentistry


Abstract: In dentistry, repair and restoration of tooth structure to regain its mechanical properties is the ultimate aim of caries management. Since collagen is the major part of dentine it is necessary to strengthen and preserve collagen matrix when repairing lesions involved in dentine. Proanthocyanidin is a naturally derived collagen cross linker which can strengthen and protect the collagen fibers from degradation. The present study aimed to investigate the potential applications of proanthocyanidin in dentistry.

Title: Prevention and treatment of neurosensory disturbance after lower third molar surgery


Abstract: Neurosensory deficit is a well-reported complication after lower third molar surgery. It is useful to know the outcomes of the available treatments for neurosensory deficit after third molar surgery. It is more important to prevent nerve injury from third molar surgery. A study on quality of life and psychological well-being was conducted to investigate their impact on patients with permanent neurosensory deficit after lower third molar surgery. The result of a study on the longitudinal outcome of microsurgical repair after nerve injury from lower third molar surgery will be presented. The long-term safety of coronectomy of lower third molar was investigated and the morbidities and root behavior will be presented.
