Orthodontic and surgical management of impacted teeth / Vincent G. Kokich, David P. Mathews.

D 617.644 K7

 

Impacted teeth are a commonplace encounter in dental practice, yet currently there is not a comprehensive book detailing the surgical treatments and orthodontic therapy to erupt or manage these teeth. Written by arguably the best orthodontist in the world and his periodontist colleague of almost 40 years, this text covers the various types of impactions an orthodontist and surgeon will encounter, including maxillary central incisors, maxillary canines (both labially and palatally impacted), mandibular canines, premolars, and mandibular molars. Each chapter focuses on a specific impacted tooth and how it can be surgically uncovered and orthodontically moved. The book also presents a chapter on failed cases, explaining what went wrong and how to prevent such negative outcomes when treating similar cases. Ideal for any dental practitioner who treats impacted teeth, this comprehensive and up-to-date book is a fitting legacy for Dr Kokich, whose impact within the field of orthodontics will be felt for years to come.

D 617.644 O61 J

 

Open-Bite Malocclusion: Treatment and Stability presents the etiology, treatment, and its stability of anterior open bite malocclusion in the early, mixed, and permanent dentitions. Special emphasis is devoted to orthodontic treatment and its stability in the permanent dentition because this is the time when treatment of open bite presents greater relapse. Appropriate for clinicians, orthodontic residents, and dental students, Open-Bite Malocclusion covers the most simple treatment approaches to the most complex, from orthodontic devices to tooth extraction to surgery.

Endodontics / [edited by] Kishor Gulabivala and Yuan-Ling Ng.

D 617.626 C7

 

Now under the leadership of a new editorial team, Endodontics 4e has been completely restructured to provide a more contemporary approach to the subject area.  As with previous editions, clinical topics are addressed in a clear step-by-step manner and have been specially designed to provide sensible ‘best practice’ routes through often conflicting approaches to treatment.

The new edition contains over 1500 images, many previously unpublished, while new chapters contain information on tooth development and the endodontic interfaces with orthodontics, general and oral medicine, and orofacial pain.. Developments in the latest underlying research, as well as advances in dental materials and equipment, are included throughout.

 

Orthodontic setup / Giuseppe Scuzzo, Kyoto Takemoto, Luca Lombardo ; with the contribution of: Akira Komori, Camilla Molinari, Chiara Berveglieri.

D 617.644 S43 o

 

The orthodontic setup is meant to provide a three-dimensional representation of the occlusion at the end of treatment. Although the orthodontic setup was first described by Kesling in 1945 and has since then become an indispensible tool for diagnosis and the construction of customized appliances, there are no standardized guidelines that are approved and used by professional organizations and manufacturers. This makes it very difficult for orthodontists to provide orthodontic technicians with precise objective information on the final position of the teeth. Orthodontic technicians must therefore draw on their personal experience, know-how, and best professional practices in short, a series of unwritten rules that are by no means universal. With this in mind, the authors have set out to describe the procedures used in the construction and evaluation of a setup that can be used both for diagnostic purposes and to manufacture customized orthodontic appliances. The manual and digital tools currently available to professionals in this field are discussed, with a particular focus on the recent developments in CAD/CAM bracket-positioning technology.

Surgical and radiologic anatomy for oral implantology / Louie Al-Faraje.

D 617.674 A38 s

Anatomical textbooks and atlases often fail to meet the clinical demands of defining intraoperative structures for oral implantologists because of the overwhelmingly detailed minutia. Because certain anatomical landmarks are hard to illustrate in a diagram format, students and professionals can be confused when confronted with actual specimens in the dissecting room or in the operatory. This book, however, shows the structures of the maxilla, the mandible, and the nasal cavity as they actually exist in the dissected or live body, through the presentation of cadaver specimens and clinical cases. Several of the chapters include full-page images of specific cadaver sections with all the relevant anatomical parts labeled for convenience. Cone beam computed tomography images are also presented to show how this technology can be used to measure the bone density, the width of the alveolar ridge, and the exact distance available for implant placement under or above certain anatomical landmarks prior to implant selection. This book will simplify the learning and execution of implant-related surgical procedures in a region of the body that presents special topographic and anatomical difficulties.

 

 

Endodontology : an integrated biological and clinical view / Domenico Ricucci and José F. Siqueira.

D 617.626 R54

This unique book is a serious study of clinical endodontics that underscores the biologic foundation of endodontic treatment and seeks to bridge the gap between basic endodontic knowledge and advanced endodontic biology. Written by a well-established clinician and a researcher with extensive background in endodontic microbiology, this book combines invaluable histologic illustrations of endodontic disease with a robust clinical text that (1) describes the pathologies affecting dental tissues as well as their reactions to the clinical procedures and (2) uses clinical microbiology to explain the observed phenomena. Treatments of complex endodontic infections are presented for both vital and nonvital pulp therapy, and the influence of periradicular pathology are addressed in detail. Moreover, the authors wade into controversial topics with detailed and comprehensive analysis, including the implications of lateral canals on treatment and the causes of treatment failures and how to avoid them. The purpose of this book is to improve endodontic treatment, and the authors demonstrate how an in-depth knowledge of endodontic infections can help clinicians to synthesize the data from patient examinations in order to visualize what has taken place, understand the processes at work, and predict what will occur with the patient. An essential clinical text for comprehensive endodontic study.
