Immediate dentoalveolar restoration : immediately loaded implants in compromised sockets / José Carlos Martins da Rosa.

D 617.674 D22

Immediate dentoalveolar restoration (IDR) is a treatment modality for immediate loading of single-tooth dental implants in fresh extraction sockets. This textbook provides a comprehensive step-by-step presentation of the IDR procedures and detailed clinical cases showing IDR used in various clinical situations. IDR reduces the number of interventions by integrating reconstruction of any tissue loss during the same visit as the implant placement and provisional crown fabrication. Predictability of the esthetics is ensured through careful esthetic assessment and use of advanced prosthetic techniques, including platform switching and contouring of the emergence profile. The minimally invasive techniques that are central to IDR are featured throughout. In addition, the authors cover the most important adjunctive topics, such as immediate loading, use of the maxillary tuberosity for bone grafts, and esthetic restoration.

Dental Research Seminar

Published by Dental Library under Dentistry

Date: August 21, 2014 (Thursday)
Time: 12:45 p.m. to 1:45 p.m.
Venue: Lecture Theatre II, G/F, The Prince Philip Dental Hospital

Presenter: Dr. Yeung Wai Kan Andy, MPhil Candidate (12:45 p.m. to 1:15 p.m.)
Abstract: The perception of taste has been investigated by neuroimaging studies with the use of various liquid delivery systems. However, existing systems compatible with functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) have limitations including limited tongue coverage and discontinuous liquid delivery. The aim of this study is to develop a delivery system which can deliver multiple solutions to a major portion of the dorsal and lateral surfaces of the tongue with a stable and continuous flow and a user-friendly interface. Results from a pilot study will also be shown to demonstrate the ability to detect brain activations triggered by taste stimuli.

Title: Development of a taste liquid delivery system for functional magnetic resonance imaging


Presenter: Miss Wu Lingli, MPhil Candidate (1:15 p.m. to 1:45 p.m.)

Title: Motivational Interviewing and Interactive Risk Assessment in Changing Adolescents’ Oral Health Behaviours: Process Evaluation and Randomized Controlled Trial

Abstract: The prevention of common oral diseases highly depends on one’s adoption of healthy behaviors. Conventional (oral health) education (CE) often fails to elicit sustainable changes in oral health behaviors. In this study, motivational interviewing (MI) and interactive risk assessment (RA) will be introduced for changing adolescents’ oral health behaviors. Through a randomized controlled trial, the effectiveness of three intervention schemes (CE, MI, and MI + RA) in enhancing adolescents’ oral health self-efficacy, improving their oral health habits (diet and oral hygiene), and preventing dental caries will be compared. Through process evaluations, the feasibility, acceptance, and quality of delivery of the respective interventions will be determined, whereas process factors that affect the effectiveness of the interventions will be identified. This study will involve 450 adolescents recruited from 15 secondary schools. Data will be collected at baseline and after 6, 12, and 24 months.

Clinical maxillary sinus elevation surgery / edited by Daniel W.K. Kao.

D 617.677 C64


Maxillary sinus elevation, followed by placement of a wide variety of grafting materials, has been the generally accepted surgical protocol for the development of bone in the sinus cavity. Over the years, various techniques have been proposed for maxillary sinus elevation, which differ in surgical approach, bone graft materials, and advanced technology application for hard tissue and soft tissue management.

Dr. Kao and a team of experts begin by discussing anatomy, radiographic image applications and limitations, and then provide step-by-step clinical procedures for the lateral window technique, including piezosurgery, and the trans-alveolar methods, including balloon and controlled hydostatic sinus elevation. Also included are chapters on post-operative care and complication management.


Nanobiomaterials in clinical dentistry / edited by Karthikeyan Subramani, Waqar Ahmed, James K. Hartsfield, Jr.

D 617.6151 N18


New nanomaterials are leading to a range of emerging dental treatments that utilize more biomimetic materials that more closely duplicate natural tooth structure (or bone, in the case of implants).

This book brings together an international team of experts from the fields of materials science, nanotechnology and dentistry, to explain these new materials and their applications for the restoration, fixation, replacement, or regeneration of hard and soft tissues in and about the oral cavity and craniofacial region.

The main topics covered include applications in dental specialties (Orthodontics, Endodontics, Pediatric dentistry, Periodontics, Prosthodontics and Implant dentistry), salivary diagnostics using bioMEMS/NEMS systems, nanochips for oral cancer diagnosis, biomimetic nanomaterials, and nanotechnology for tooth repair and regeneration.
