Complete dentures: from planning to problem solving / by P. Finbarr Allen, Seán McCarthy.

D 617.632 A42

The proportion of elderly adults is rapidly increasing as life expectancy increases. Many of these adults will not retain sufficient numbers of teeth for the remainder of their lives, and will require complete dentures at some point.

This book (2nd edition) deals with the planning, construction and review of complete dentures and examines the role of osseointegrated prostheses in the management of edentulism.


What’s in your mouth?: your guide to a lifelong smile / Douglas A. Terry.

D 617.65 T32

Dental clinicians have a responsibility to teach patients the importance of oral health care, and this book shows adult patients what can happen if they neglect their teeth. It presents full-page images to show what plaque, decay, and gingivitis look like and how they can contribute to periodontal disease and tooth loss. It also instructs the reader on the proper brushing and ossing techniques to prevent such negative outcomes. With the combination of exquisite clinical images and descriptive yet succinct text, What’s in Your Mouth?: Your Guide to a Lifelong Smile is an excellent chairside tool for patient education on oral hygiene.

Saliva : secretion and functions / volume editors, Antoon J.M. Ligtenberg, Enno C.I. Veerman.

D 617.6132 S1 L

 

Health professionals are more and more aware of the importance of saliva for oral health and well-being. As saliva secretion is steadily compromised with advancing age, it becomes a factor of concern in societies with an aging population, especially with a growing number of people who keep their own teeth. The numerous functions of saliva, like antimicrobial activity, lubrication, wound healing and its role in taste experience are only truly recognized when saliva secretion is hampered. In medical diagnostics, saliva shows its value as a safe and economical alternative to blood. This publication provides a comprehensive overview of the latest developments in salivary research by some of the world’s leading experts in the field. Chapters deal with various aspects: anatomy and physiology, e.g. regeneration of salivary glands, saliva functions, e.g. its protective and rheological properties, and diagnostics and disorders, e.g. xerostomia and hypersalivation.

Oral health surveys : basic methods/ World Health Organization.

D 617.65 W92 o

Basic oral health surveys provide a sound basis for assessing the current oral health status of a population and its future needs for oral health care. The World Health Organization (WHO) has a long tradition of epidemiological survey methodology, which includes a description of the diagnostic criteria that can be readily understood and applied in public health programmes worldwide.

The WHO manual Oral Health Surveys – Basic Methods has encouraged countries to conduct standardized oral health surveys that are comparable internationally. The WHO Global Oral Health Data Bank collates the data gathered through country surveys on the burden of oral disease and WHO recommended statistical analysis on key indicator age groups of children and adults.

This manual aims to encourage national oral health survey planners to standardize measurements of oral diseases and conditions that are important for planning and evaluation of oral health programmes, as well as to ensure the comparability of data collected in a wide range of environments. It does this by applying the WHO global approach to chronic disease surveillance to an operational model for integration of oral health into chronic disease surveillance systems.

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.
