Explains the effects of a wide variety of medical and surgical conditions on patients seen in everyday dental practice. Addresses considerations in particular patient populations.
The book describes impacts on treatment planning and provides guidance on drug interactions.
Provides a sound evidence base for provision of information and advice on the main aspects of oral health.
Uses a simple scheme to indicate the strength of supporting scientific evidence in each instance
Based on a consensus of scientific opinion from a group of leading dental experts.
This book is a state of the art clinical guide to contemporary materials and techniques for the restoration of individual teeth and implants.
It fully reflects the important developments in the field over the past 15 years, including in particular the shift away from wholesale use of crowns towards adhesive dentistry and less invasive extra-coronal restorations.
The book opens by considering the principles and evidence base relating to the longevity of restorations of teeth and implants.
Importantly, it explains how to ensure “a healthy start” and manage future risks.
Material choice and aesthetic issues are then discussed, before all aspects of the planning and provision of extra-coronal restorations are examined in depth.
The coverage also includes the adaptation of crowns to existing partial dentures. In line with modern dental education, each chapter begins with clinically relevant learning objectives, and helpful clinical tips are highlighted.
The book will be of value for senior dental undergraduates, postgraduates, and practicing dentists and its scientific content will be of interest to dental academics.
This book, designed to meet the needs of clinicians, clearly explains the rationale and technique for the rehabilitation of fully edentulous patients utilizing traditional graftless concepts as well as zygomatic implant strategies when posterior support cannot be achieved by the former means.
Considerations relevant to treatment planning and the biomechanics of immediate loading and zygomatic implants are first discussed. The techniques for placement of traditional tilted and zygomatic implants and for immediate loading of a full arch restoration are then described step by step.
Detailed information and guidance are also provided on the different materials available for full arch restorations, laboratory aspects of the definitive restoration, maintenance of restorations, and management of prosthetic and surgical complications.
The book concludes with a helpful series of clinical cases. Graftless Solutions for the Edentulous Patient is designed particularly for clinicians with experience in placing and restoring dental implants.
This guide to fixed appliance-based orthodontics is designed to serve as a comprehensive ‘how to’ manual.
With the aid of a wealth of superb illustrations, instruction is provided on all aspects of fixed appliance treatment, including bracket placement and positioning, archwire selection and engagement, use of auxiliaries, placement of fixed retainers, and wire bending.
The supporting text presents important information underpinning the selection of attachments and mechanics, emphasising the relative merits and demerits of the various approaches with appropriate use of key referencing.
It will offer detailed support on the use of fixed orthodontic appliances for undergraduates and postgraduates and those starting with practical orthodontic treatments, while providing a valuable refresher and reference for more experienced clinicians.
This is the second of a two-volume textbook on oral surgery in the BDJ Clinical Guide Series. Aiming to provide an evidence-based practical and pragmatic guide to dentoalveolar surgery, this volume contains advice on minimising complications and optimising patient care.
Written with the general dental practitioner and undergraduate student in mind, the book will also be of value to specialist trainees and to more senior colleagues interested in clinical updates. Both authors have many years of experience in oral surgery enabling them and their contributors, to bring a wealth of practical knowledge to this important aspect of patient care.
This clinical guide is a much anticipated addition to the series as
oral surgery plays such an important role in daily dental practice.
The book includes chapters on basic surgical principles, exodontia,
third molar surgery, and comprehensive coverage of everyday
considerations and problems in this vital subject area.
Available in a sturdy and attractive hardback format.
This book provides a succinct text on the contemporary
approach to oral diagnosis and treatment planning for general
dental practitioners and dental students.
A successful dental treatment plan should meet the biological,
functional and aesthetic needs and realistic expectations of
the patient, and the planning process should be both problem and
evidence-based. Oral diagnostic equipment and dental
treatment procedures continue to evolve and those occupying
most of the treatment time and providing most of the income in
general practices are fully described and explored.
