The Handbook of Oral Diseases for Medical Practice, part of the Oxford Clinical Practice Series, is a comprehensive handbook for medical students, medical practitioners and other healthcare providers. The handbook has contributions from several international experts and adopts symptom- and disease-oriented approaches. It covers a wide range of topics, such as orofacial pain syndromes, common tooth- and gum-related diseases, oral mucosal white patches, blisters, ulcers, wart-like lesions and soft tissue lumps and swellings, dental trauma, oral soft and hard tissue infections, jaw cysts, tumours and tumour-like lesions, oral health in pregnancy, oral manifestations of systemic diseases including HIV/AIDS, dental sleep medicine and potentially malignant and life-threatening malignant oral lesions. The book is supplemented with more than 150 clinical images. It is designed in a bulleted format for a quick and easy reference, and each clinical condition is organised into definition, cause, clinical features, diagnoses and management.
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 describes the principles of
Restorative and Reconstructive Dentistry
and demonstrates their practical,
everyday application through a range
of representative cases building from
the simple to the complex and from the
common to the rare.
The latest edition of this popular book continues to
provide a highly visual step-by-step guide to the practical
management of a wide variety of presentations seen in
clinical dental practice. Containing over 350 high-quality
photographs, line artworks and tables, Clinical Problem
Solving in Dentistry is written in an easy-to read ‘how to’
style and contains a large number of real life clinical cases
carefully presented to maximise learning outcomes for
An invaluable reference work outlining
the clinical features, diagnosis,
management and dental relevance of
50 of the most commonly encountered
chronic medical problems in the
developed world. Includes full colour
photographs throughout, as well as case
studies with accompanying questions
and answers to illustrate each condition.
The second edition of this title builds on the success of the
prestigious first edition to present an unrivalled resource on
cariology. The clinical thrust of the first edition is widened
and strengthened to include coverage of the disease in
all its variety, from eruption of the fi rst primary tooth to
the prevalent forms of the disease in older patients. The
centrality of caries control and management to the dental
health of all populations is further emphasised, as the book
goes beyond the successful treatment of carious lesions
to demonstrate the long-term consequences of the nonoperative
and therapeutic techniques employed.
