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 is the second of four volumes that together offer an authoritative, in-depth reference guide covering all aspects of the management of oral cancer from a multidisciplinary perspective and on the basis of a strong scientific foundation.
This volume addresses a range of management issues in oral cancer, from imaging and staging through to the roles of radiation therapy and chemotherapy.
Principles of ablative surgery are explained, and neck dissection and sentinel lymph node biopsy techniques, described.
Detailed consideration is also given to the management of complications, salvage surgery and re-radiation, the biologic basis of treatment failure, and emerging approaches to overcome treatment resistance.
The inclusion of resource-stratified guidelines will meet the needs of practitioners in different geographic regions with varying resources.
This book is designed to meet the needs of both dental students and dentists by providing succinct and quickly retrievable answers to common dental questions.
Students will find both that it clearly presents the particulars which should be familiar to every dentist and that it enables them to see the big picture and contextualize information introduced to them in the future. Practicing dentists, on the other hand, will employ the book as a daily reference to source information on important topics, materials, techniques, and conditions.
The book is neither discipline nor specialty specific. The first part is wide ranging and covers the essentials of dental practice while the second part addresses individual specialties and the third is devoted to emergency dental treatment. Whether as a handy resource in the student s backpack or as a readily available tool on the office desk, this reference manual fills an important gap in the dental literature.
This book, richly illustrated in full colour, is a comprehensive guide to the use of local anaesthesia in dentistry that will meet the needs of both students and dental practitioners.
It provides the reader with ample background information on the origin of pain and the pharmacology of anaesthetics, and describes the anatomy of the trigeminal nerve in detail.
Subsequent chapters cover key are as such as general practical aspects, local anesthaesia in the upper and the lower jaw, the use of local anaesthetics in children, local and systematic complications, and the prevention of side effects.
Patients at particular risk of adverse effects are identified and attention drawn to significant legal aspects.
This second edition has been completely revised, with more attention to safety, environment, and sterility.
Additional injection techniques have been included, and a new chapter is devoted to microprocessor-assisted administration of anaesthetics.
Throughout, care has been taken to ensure that the information is clearly presented and the text is easy to read.
This superbly illustrated book presents the most current and comprehensive review of oral anatomy for clinicians and researchers alike.
In 26 chapters, the reader is taken on a unique anatomical journey, starting with the oral fissure, continuing via the maxilla and mandible to the tongue and floor of the mouth, and concluding with the temporomandibular joint and masticatory muscles.
Each chapter offers a detailed description of the relevant anatomical structures and their spatial relationships, provides quantitative morphological assessments, and explains the relevance of the region for clinical dentistry.
All dental health care professionals require a sound knowledge of anatomy for the purposes of diagnostics, treatment planning, and therapeutic intervention.
A full understanding of the relationship between anatomy and clinical practice is the ultimate objective, and this book will enable the reader to achieve such understanding as the basis for provision of the best possible treatment for each individual patient as well as recognition and comprehension of unexpected clinical findings.
This handbook has been designed for practicing dental clinicians and students, which includes dental hygienists, general dentists, periodontists, and students of dental hygiene and dentistry who are responsible for treating patients with a broad spectrum of periodontal diseases.
The book will enable practicing clinicians and students to successfully meet the challenge of excellent patient care, by providing , in a concise and simplified format, both classic and contemporary practical measures that address all aspects of non-surgical periodontal disease management.
Readers are carefully guided through an extensive body of accumulated knowledge in eight broad chapters which includes: the patient’s involvement in disease control and prevention, the clinician’s instrumentation for the diagnosis and basic treatment of gingivitis/periodontitis along with pharmacotherapeutics and supportive maintenance therapy to ensure long-term success.
Numerous illustrations help to bring the presented ideas and suggestions to life and the succinct nature of the text will allow readers to transfer useful information quickly to their own clinical settings.
This book aims to define the etiological factors in dental caries and to guide the clinician towards methods of caries prevention that are evidence based.
The coverage includes discussion of the active role of the biofilm and the oral environment and emphasizes the multifactorial etiology of dental caries.
The opening chapters describe the early detection and diagnosis of dental caries, highlight the value of caries risk assessment to the patient, and explain the dynamic process of the demineralization–remineralization cycle.
Information is presented on the action of fluoride, and the evidence relating to the use and effectiveness of remineralization agents and biomimetic materials is reviewed. Additionally, the effects of antimicrobials such as chlorhexidine and ozone are summarized.
Further chapters focus on dietary counseling (with information on sweeteners and probiotics), the effectiveness of sealants in caries prevention, and resin infiltration. The philosophy of prophylaxis and ways to improve patient compliance and achieve proper mechanical plaque removal are discussed.
The book is concluded with a chapter discussing preventive actions in representative cases.
