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.

The Etruscans and the History of Dentistry: The Golden Smile through the Ages / by M.J. Becker and J. MacIntosh Turfa
Routledge, c. 2017

"The Etruscans and the History of Dentistry offers a study of the construction and use of gold dental appliances in ancient Etruscan culture, and their place within the framework of a general history of dentistry, with special emphasis on appliances, from Bronze Age Mesopotamia and Egypt to modern Europe and the Americas. Included are many of the ancient literary sources that refer to dentistry - or the lack thereof - in Greece and Rome, as well as the archaeological evidence of ancient dental health. The book challenges many past works in exposing modern scholars’ fallacies about ancient dentistry, while presenting the incontrovertible evidence of the Etruscans’ seemingly modern attitudes to cosmetic dentistry."

The author focuses on the morphologic characteristics of teeth and their relationship to the surrounding structures, such as the lips and gingiva. The text also examines the tooth surface at the micro and macro levels and how its effects on light reflection can change the appearance, size, and morphology of teeth. All the phenomena and optical properties that must be understood and re-created in restorations in order to achieve lifelike results are analyzed, and a classification based on the shape and contour of the tooth is presented. Clinical cases provide practical application of these concepts." From Publisher's Website.
