This improved, updated and expanded
second edition profiles the common
orofacial disorders and a wide range of
less common and some rare disorders.
The focus is on the occurrence of these
disorders in children and adolescents, and
the author tailors the commentary to
specific paediatric age groups.
This is the third edition of this
hugely successful practical resource in
orthodontics and paediatric dentistry,
which is ideal for undergraduate dental students and postgraduates preparing for MJDF and similar exams. It provides a unique step-by-step guide
to differential diagnosis and treatment
planning. The ever popular 'Clinical Case' format continues to help readers combine different dental procedures into a rational plan of treatment for patients who may have several dental problems requiring attention.
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.
Like the other titles in the 'At a Glance' series, this book
provides a concise and accessible introduction and
revision aid, comprehensively covering all the constituent
sub–topics that comprise paediatric dentistry. Following
the familiar, easy–to–use at a Glance format, each
topic is presented as a double–page spread with facts
accompanied by clear diagrams and clinical photographs
encapsulating essential knowledge.
