Dental composite materials for direct restorations / by V. Miletic

This book covers both basic scientific and clinically relevant aspects of dental composite materials with a view to meeting the needs of researchers and practitioners. Following an introduction on their development, the composition of contemporary composites is analyzed. A chapter on polymerization explains the setting reactions and light sources available for light-cured composites. The quality of monomer-to-polymer conversion is a key factor for material properties. Polymerization shrinkage along with the associated stress remains among the most challenging issues regarding composite restorations. A new classification of dental composites is proposed to offer more clinically relevant ways of differentiating between commercially available materials. A review of specific types of composites provides an insight into their key issues. The potential biological issues of dental composites are reviewed in chapters on elution of leachable substances and cariogenicity of resin monomers. Clinical sections focus on material placement, finishing procedures, and the esthetics and clinical longevity of composite restorations. Bonding to tooth tissues is addressed in a separate chapter, as is the efficiency of various composite repair methods. The final chapter discusses future perspectives on dental composite materials.

Pathogenesis of periodontal diseases: biological concepts for clinicians / by N. Bostanci and G. N. Belibasakis

This book aims to provide clinicians with a refined understanding of the biology that underlies periodontal diseases, thereby offering a sound basis for improved clinical decision making with regard to prevention strategies, diagnosis, and therapy. All significant aspects of periodontal pathogenesis are covered, including the roles played by the oral microbiome and biofilms, bacterial virulence factors, cells of the immune system, matrix metalloproteinases, proinflammatory and osteolytic cytokines, genetic factors, and antimicrobial peptides.
Periodontal diseases are among the most common infectious diseases in humans, and the primary cause of tooth loss in adults. The functional and esthetic problems associated with these diseases compromise quality of life, and their treatment imposes large financial burdens on national health systems and private patients. Up-to-date knowledge of periodontal pathogenesis is therefore essential for the contemporary clinician. This book, written by experts from Europe and the Americas, delivers such knowledge in an accessible, clinician-friendly way. From publisher site. 

Apical periodontitis in root-filled teeth: endodontic retreatment and alternative approaches / by T. Kvist

This book is a comprehensive guide to apical periodontitis in root-filled teeth that covers not only all aspects of diagnosis and management but also epidemiology, etiology, consequences, clinical decision-making, and prognosis. There is a particular focus on the available surgical and nonsurgical methods of retreatment designed to restore healthy periapical conditions. Alternatives to retreatment are also explored, including a conservative approach involving monitoring of the diseased tooth without intervention and the option of extraction and replacement with an implant or a fixed prosthesis.The goal of root canal treatment is to save the natural tooth even when tissue breakdown has resulted in pathological conditions of the pulp and periradicular tissue. However, population studies reveal that complete healing is often absent in root-filled teeth, and apical periodontitis is frequently observed in conjunction with root fillings of poor technical quality. Under thesecircumstances, questions arise as to how the apical periodontitis is impacting on the patient and how the condition should be tackled. Readers will find this well-illustrated book to be of great value in directing clinical practice. From publisher site.

From back cover

This book offers a meticulous analysis of occlusion, one of the most important specialties in dentistry, because a healthy stomatognatic system depends on it. The book covers the dentition, tooth and implant bone, gingiba, tooth and implant-borne prostheses, masticatory muscles, ligaments, TMJ, articular capsules, disks, etc. The problems that can lead to "malocclusion" depend on patient emotional stress, grinding, clenching, and the jaw being out of occlusion and its proper position. The book also covers referred pain, which can mimic joint symptoms caused by neck and masticatory muscle problems. Headaches and facial pain may be diagnosed as being atypical and may be really due to occlusion-related muscle problems (masseters, tmporalis, etc.), including neck muscles. From back cover. 

In recent years, innovative technology has allowed the dental team to use new materials and equipment in the production of prosthetic dental restorations that offer greater precision than conventional protocols. However, many clinicians find themselves struggling to make the transition to a digital workflow. With this book, the authors present the digital workflow they have developed and tested over time as new materials and software have continued to evolve. The accompanying DVD demonstrates the overarching treatment plan protocols, and the authors show what is possible through multiple cases of varying clinical situations. The authors emphasize how to use the intraoral scanner properly and how to integrate the digital workflow with the traditional knowledge and practice. Readers will discover how to assimilate new technology into their daily routine to improve communication with patients and their dental team and increase the quality of their restorations, ultimately enhancing the satisfaction of their patients and the success of their practice.
