World of anterior ceramic restorations/ Yeojoon Koh.

D 617.627 K7

This beautifully designed and visually stunning clinical atlas offers myriad clinical situations in which anterior ceramic restorations can be used to correct esthetic problems. Each section presents one case that focuses on a distinct set of esthetic and dental conditions that necessitate restoration, such as fracture, crowding, rotation, asymmetry, discoloration, contour, caries, or implant considerations, among others. The case presentation begins by showing the definitive esthetic result alongside a succinct, multilingual (English, German, Japanese, and Korean) description of the initial conditions and the procedure used.

Advanced immediate loading / Georgios E. Romanos.

D 617.674 R75 a

This expert guide presents the research and state-of-the-art protocols for advanced immediate loading of dental implants. The first several chapters review the scientific and biologic basis of immediate loading, including requirements for successful clinical application, the importance of implant surface and design characteristics, and the results of significant histologic studies. The later chapters build on this knowledge, presenting research results and clinical case examples relevant to specific applications of immediate loading, including its use in the anterior mandible, edentulous arches, posterior regions, single-tooth gaps, and fresh extraction sockets. Finally, the book provides valuable clinical hints to help the practitioner avoid and manage complications associated with immediate loading.

Visitors can find a list of the member countries under the Network of Funders tab. Visitors interested in
learning what topics of humanities research have been aided by HERA should check out the News tab on the menu near the top of any page. There visitors will find Research Policy News, Research News, and Newsfeeds.
