This book reviews the evidence relating to the mechanisms, clinical efficacy, safety/toxicity, and clinical application of tooth whitening techniques and materials.
All clinical techniques are profusely illustrated step by step.
The book is divided into four parts, the first of which explains how tooth whitening with peroxides works and examines the overall safety of peroxides and potential complications.
The findings of clinical trials with peroxide-based materials for clinical practice are then examined, with discussion of a wide range of issues in at-home whitening and in-office whitening.
The third part focuses on the techniques of enamel microabrasion and resin infiltration, which entail removal of a microscopic layer of enamel and may be used to improve tooth color either alone or in combination with peroxides. The concluding part includes a variety of informative clinical cases using combined bleaching and restorative techniques for discolored teeth.
Tooth Whitening — An Evidence-Based Perspective will be of interest for dentists, dental hygienists, dental assistants, and others with an interest in the subject.
This book is a comprehensive guide to paediatric dental fear/anxiety (DFA) and phobia that will provide practitioners with a full understanding of the etiology, prevalence, assessment, and management of these conditions.
The coping styles of children when under stress are explored, with discussion of their relevance to the assessment visit and treatment allocation.
Practical treatment techniques are comprehensively covered, from non-pharmacological behavioural strategies relevant for children with no or mild DFA to those approaches more appropriate for children with severe DFA/phobia.
The importance of the use of language and communication skills to build rapport and allay anxiety is explored. Relaxation and hypnosis techniques are described, with guidance on how to introduce these to patients and their parents/carers.
Techniques that help children cope when receiving injections are detailed, including systematic needle desensitization; these provide practitioners with options to help resolve DFA and phobia regarding needles.
Intravenous sedation, including the challenge of cannulation, is covered comprehensively. Furthermore, cognitive behavioural therapy is presented, with suggestion of practical self-help material when appropriate.
The closing chapter looks to the future, discussing the barriers to and the changes required for the creation of more child-centred DFA services.

This book serves as a clinical guide to help the practitioner improve endodontic treatment outcomes.
It focuses on the various factors affecting the prognosis of endodontic treatments and on their impact on short-term and long-term results.
The text incorporates up-to-date knowledge, techniques and treatment protocols. Each chapter has been carefully chosen to address either foundational knowledge or a select aspect of endodontic treatment. The authors analyse the knowledge accumulated from a large number of outcome studies and provide the reader with a critical appraisal indicating the strengths and weaknesses of those studies.
This information is then used to make recommendations on how to predict the outcome of the intended treatment.
The authors emphasize that the endodontic prognosis is a multifactorial phenomenon, underscoring how various factors, singularly and in combination, influence the treatment outcome.
Readers are provided with tools to successfully assess the prognosis of the proposed treatment at the outset and to execute the planned treatment focused on optimal outcome.
