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.
Head, Neck, and Dental Emergencies, Second Edition provides the reader with a practical approach to the diagnosis and management of all urgent or emergent problems that occur above the collar bones.
Emergency care must be simple and quick so this guide comprises short notes, diagrams, and photographs, with an emphasis on establishing the diagnosis while maintaining a high index of suspicion.
New features for this edition are aimed at assisting a rapid diagnosis. Chapters are symptom-based and structured around how the patients present. Quick-reference boxes at the start of each chapter list common presentations and their causes, followed by tips and tricks on what to look for and what questions to ask the patient.
Fully comprehensive, this new edition also has two new chapters on 'The Nose' and 'The Throat'
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.
