Digital Workflow in Reconstructive Dentistry is the result of efforts made by the academic team at the Department of Prosthodontics, University Hospital of Freiburg. It aims to build a fundamental understanding of the general principles, science, and clinics of digital dental medicine. The information provided within these pages summarizes the various components of the digital workflow in reconstructive dentistry and discusses their advantages and disadvantages. Moreover, insights are provided about upcoming, game-changing technologies. By reading this book, students, clinicians, and researchers will gain and enhance their knowledge about digital dental medicine and identify the areas they need to focus on next in order to integrate the available technologies in their daily work. Clearly, the path of digital dental medicine will not stop here.

Prevention is better than healing … or treatment. Thus, preventive dentistry is a cross-sectional challenge for all fields in dentistry, and one that has already achieved great success, as shown by the caries decline in many countries. The walls between prevention and treatment have recently fallen in caries and periodontal disease, as well as in orthodontics, where guidance of function and space maintenance are a combination of prevention and treatment.
This book discusses new developments and innovations in preventive dentistry, from primary “real” prevention to secondary prevention by inactivating initial lesions, and on to tertiary prevention to avoid subsequent progression and
complications of manifest oral disease. This evidence base is then translated into clinical dental practice.
The book addresses everyone interested or involved in dentistry, including students, the whole dental practice team, educators, health scientists, and policy makers, who want to gain insight into these up-to-date clinical practices and future developments. It intends to make an impact on teaching and all fields of clinical dentistry – not by giving cookbook recipes, but by pointing out the rationale behind the changes in our routines.
Presented by an international group of recognized specialists in their fields, the topics include the new understanding and management of caries and periodontal disease, prevention of orthodontic problems, diagnostic approaches, the role of diet and according recommendations for oral health, routes to better oral hygiene, changes in oral disease patterns and their consequences, non- and minimally invasive caries treatment, current fluoride guidelines including the use of silver fluorides, risk management, a common risk-factor approach, facilitating behavior changes, sealants, and probiotics. This broad spectrum is elucidated for the most relevant dental problems from early childhood to seniors to implement preventively oriented dental practice.
An A to Z Guided Workflow
This atlas synthesizes the latest technologic advances in esthetic dentistry and shows how to successfully integrate them into clinical practice. Part I begins with a chapter on dental photography that focuses on the correct settings and use of equipment needed to obtain high-quality images for documentation and communication with patients and the laboratory. Subsequent chapters present the steps involved in the esthetic preview, which provides the opportunity to try out a proposed treatment and make adjustments before undertaking any procedures, increasing patient acceptance and satisfaction.
Molar incisor hypomineralization (MIH) has become a much-discussed topic of interest that presents major challenges for dental professionals in practice and research. It is defined as a qualitative enamel defect that typically occurs on one or more first permanent molars with or without the involvement of the permanent incisors. This book serves as a comprehensive reference that critically appraises the controversies around MIH found in the scientific literature. Practical advice about diagnosis and treatment of the disease is provided, and the various clinical treatment options are explained in detail. The text is written for dental practitioners, postgraduate and undergraduate students and researchers, as well as anyone who would like to expand their knowledge of this contemporary topic in everyday clinical dentistry.

This book achieves the ambitious aim of showing dentists how to create conservative and esthetic direct restorations of posterior teeth using composite resin. The book begins with a primer on occlusal anatomy, describing the specifics of each type of posterior tooth. This foundation supports the diagnosis and treatment of lesions, isolation, and cavity preparation for the buildup, as well as modeling, detailing, and finishing of restorations that closely mimic natural tooth anatomy for optimal esthetics and function. Numerous clinical tips and case examples are provided, and the procedural rationale is supported by scientific evidence, in addition to the authors’ considerable clinical experience. Techniques for a wide range of clinical scenarios are presented to provide practitioners with the information they need to achieve optimal restorations.
Minimally invasive – esthetic – reliable
Nowadays, single-retainer metal-ceramic and all-ceramic resin-bonded fixed dental prostheses (RBFDPs) often present a truly minimally invasive alternative to singletooth implants or other conventional prosthetic methods. Their excellent clinical outcome has been proven by several recently published long-term studies.
Today, there is much talk of being disruptive in life and business, of interrupting the status quo or of reinventing the rules. This two-volume book describes a different approach to dentistry by using the author’s signature SLOW method to effectively GROW your practice and your enjoyment of the profession. The focus is on maintaining effective personal relationships in a world of marketing and digital communication, where it is often necessary to compete for the patient’s attention. The book offers a vision of doing more with less, prioritizing quality, and enjoying the emotional bond with the patient as well as the dental team. It discusses methods to compete successfully in a global market and find greater fulfillment in dentistry and in general by optimizing personal human connections.
Proper management of soft tissues in periodontal, implant, and reconstructive surgery has become increasingly important for esthetic treatment outcomes. In order to achieve correct postoperative positioning of the soft tissues, clinicians must have a comprehensive understanding of wound healing and suturing. Drawing on a series of clinical cases, this book outlines suturing techniques for the most common surgical procedures, providing indications as well as techniques for implementation. The detailed illustrations and tables clarify difficult technical concepts, and a quick reference guide consolidates the essential information for each suture type.

Technology has irreversibly changed our profession, ushering in a historical period full of challenges and opportunities. Leveraging digital tools to diagnose, design, plan, motivate, and execute corrective therapies is crucial for success in today’s highly competitive business environment.
Planning investments, creating partnerships, facing and overcoming the learning curve, involving the team, and making technology a daily routine by stepping out of one’s comfort zone are just some of the challenges for success in contemporary dentistry.
