Oral & maxillofacial trauma / editors, Raymond J. Fonseca … [et al.].

D 617.6722 O6

Describing the diagnosis and management of maxillofacial and associated traumatic injuries step by step, Oral and Maxillofacial Trauma, 4th Edition takes you beyond the surgical management of head and neck trauma to cover the general management of traumatic injuries, systemic evaluation of the trauma patient, and special considerations associated with maxillofacial trauma patient care. New to this edition are over 700 full-color illustrations showing details of traumatic injuries and their treatment. Edited by head and neck trauma expert Dr. Raymond J. Fonseca, along with over 80 highly respected contributors, this comprehensive reference provides all of the information you need to offer the best care possible to maxillofacial trauma patients.

 

Inspiration : people, teeth, and restorations / authors, Luiz Narciso Baratieri … [et al.].

D 617.62 I59

Natural tooth behaves much as a collection of mosaics that change color according to the type of light and media in which they are found, and it is this beauty of tooth composition and form that is the inspiration to those who seek to mimic tooth in dental restorations. This stunning atlas is the culmination of more than 25 years of dedicated study into the optical behavior of teeth and restorative materials. Although the author wows readers with dazzling photography throughout, this book moves beyond a mere clinical art book that only shows what is possible. The practical purpose of this book is also to outline the clinical sequences of how to use composite resins and dental ceramics to achieve the optical characteristics observed so exquisitely in natural teeth. By blending art and dental science, the author has created an ultimate textbook on dental anatomy and restorative dentistry that explores the underlying makeup of the layered structures of the teeth and reveals the techniques of how to meet the challenge of mimicking natural tooth.

 

Atlas of cone beam imaging for dental applications / Dale A. Miles.

D 617.6621 M64

Now regarded as the standard of care for some applications in dentistry, cone beam volumetric imaging (CBVI) is profoundly influencing clinical decision making like no other imaging modality developed in the past century. Yet many practitioners remain uncertain about its range of applications, safety, and cost, as well as how and when to integrate it into their clinical practice. This sleek, full-color atlas addresses each of these topics in succinct fashion. The author, a practicing oral and maxillofacial radiologist, introduces readers to all of the various ways of viewing CBVI data sets and guides clinicians in identifying familiar anatomic landmarks in the three planes of section (axial, sagittal, and coronal). Comprehensive case presentations demonstrate the diagnostic and treatment-planning capabilities of CBVI in its full range of applications (eg, airway studies, implant site assessment, odontogenic lesion visualization, 1:1 space analysis) while at the same time highlighting situations in which traditional two-dimensional imaging will suffice. A must-read for students and practitioners at all levels and in all specialties of dentistry.
