Atlas of complications and failures in implant dentistry : guidelines for a therapeutic approach / Luigi Galasso, Gian Antonio Favero ; [foreword by P-I Brånemark].

D 617.674 G14

 

The authors of this clinical atlas aim to both reduce the clinical incidence of avoidable errors and provide clinicians with tested management protocols to follow when complications arise. In separate chapters, the book presents complications that can develop at different stages of treatment: implant connection, immediate loading, prosthetic phase, and follow-up. The first part of each chapter describes specific complications in terms of their etiology, clinical signs and symptoms, diagnosis, and resolution and treatment. Then, using clinical case examples, the authors relate the stories of how these complications have occurred in real-life clinical situations and show how variables such as individual patient concerns, desires, and priorities affect the way in which they are handled. This practical reference book serves as a guide for diagnosis and treatment of complications and also, more importantly, provides a code of conduct and a philosophy for how to approach complications.

 

  

Paediatric dentistry / edited by Richard Welbury, Monty S. Duggal, Marie Thérèse Hosey.

D 617.629 P29

 

Paediatric Dentistry fourth edition combines in-depth theoretical information and practical clinical skills to produce a highly relevant resource for undergraduate dentistry students and indeed any clinician in the field. With a user-friendly design, this new edition continues the extensive use of key points, advice on further reading and directions to important evidence. As a result this texts acts as both an essential study tool and a quick reference guide for the surgery. Paediatric Dentistry fourth edition contains a comprehensive survey of every important aspect in the field, including oral pathology, prevention and treatment of dental caries, and restorative dentistry.

The book now offers over 550 illustrations, including clinical photographs and information-packed diagrams. Explanations of key clinical procedures are supported by step-by-step illustrations encorporating photographs, x-ray scans and line drawings. Updated throughout, a new chapter on safeguarding children has also been included in order to prepare the reader for the role they might play in protecting the health and wellbeing of vulnerable children. This reflects the child-centred approach that is integrated throughout the text.

 

 

Dental ceramics : microstructure, properties and degradation / Carlos P. Bergmann, Aisha Stumpf.

D 617.6151 B499
