While most dentists do not perform their own histologic testing, all dentists must be able to recognize conditions that may require biopsy or further treatment outside the dentist office. This book does not pretend to be an exhaustive resource on oral pathology; instead, it seeks to provide the practicing clinician with enough information to help identify or at least narrow down the differential for every common lesion or oral manifestation of disease seen in daily practice as well as what to do about them. Organized by type of lesion, mass, or disease, each pathologic entity presented includes the nature of the disease; its predilections, clinical features, radiographic presentation, differential diagnosis, and microscopic features; and the suggested course of action for the dental practitioner as well as the standard treatment regimen. In keeping with the concise nature of the text, all but the rarest disease entities include at least one photograph to illustrate the clinical condition. This book distills the comprehensive information from Dr Marx and Dr Diane Stern’s award-winning pathology reference text (Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology: A Rationale for Diagnosis and Treatment, ed 2 [Quintessence, 2012]) into practical guidelines for restorative and general dentists everywhere.
A Microsurgical Approach
Zuhr, Otto / Hürzeler, Marc
In this book, the authors provide the first comprehensive overview of the basic principles, indications and clinical techniques of plastic-esthetic periodontal and implant microsurgery.
It is an exemplary blend of scientific knowledge and practical experience. All salient issues are analyzed on the basis of the available scientific literature and the current clinical evidence. The microsurgical procedures presented in the book are explained step-by-step in meticulously illustrated case examples. Checklists for the necessary materials, instruments and work steps are added to facilitate practical implementation of the microsurgical procedures. Last but not least, the authors provide instructions on how to manage all major complications of each procedure.
This book is without doubt one of the foremost oral surgery publications in recent years and is a must for every implantologist and periodontist.

Each chapter of this highly practical guide begins with a question-and-answer section that addresses clinicians’ most frequently asked questions: Why are “pink esthetics” the most important factor in determining a good treatment outcome? When is immediate postextraction implant placement preferable, and when is it safer to carry out preservation or augmentation of the ridge? When and how can a keratinized tissue band be properly reconstructed or peri-implant soft tissues be augmented? How are peri-implant esthetic complications treated? Citing from the literature, the authors review the prevailing best evidence to provide guidelines for treatment. With more than 90 clinical cases demonstrating a wide range of therapeutic needs, the authors explore compelling case examples to provide step-by-step analysis of techniques and explain the best treatment options in different clinical scenarios. This book offers answers to dilemmas that every clinician faces in daily practice and outlines clear strategies for achieving optimal treatment results.
A Contemporary Approach
Hilton, Thomas J / Ferracane, Jack L / Broome, James (Ed.)
Over the past two decades, the Fundamentals of Operative Dentistry has become one of the most trusted textbooks on clinical restorative dentistry. By integrating time-tested methods with recent scientific innovation, the authors promote sound concepts for predictable conservative techniques. Now in its fourth edition, this classic text has been completely updated with full-color illustrations throughout and substantial revisions in every chapter to incorporate the latest scientific developments and current research findings. In addition, a new chapters on color study and shade matching address new areas of focus in the preclinical curriculum. A valuable resource for understanding the scientific basis for current treatment options in dentistry.
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.
Minimally invasive surgical techniques are being increasingly used throughout medicine, often replacing conventional surgery. In many instances conventional techniques cannot match the outcome obtained with them.
Transcrestal sinus floor elevation has become increasingly popular and a logical target for these innovations, but recent reports cast doubt on the efficiency and predictable success of the technique.
This book is intended to alert the reader to the shortcomings of the various techniques of transcrestal sinus floor elevation, with the intention of providing a blueprint to help develop transcrestal sinus floor elevation into a surgical technique that meets the general medical standards of a minimally invasive procedure.
In the author’s bestselling first book, Vertical and Horizontal Ridge Augmentation: New Perspectives, published by Quintessence in 2017 and translated into 12 languages, the guided bone regeneration (GBR) technique was described in detail. This new publication, Vertical 2: The Next Level of Hard and Soft Tissue Augmentation, is a continuation of that book but at a more advanced level. Now, the author delves into the details where the devil lives, and shares information that has never been revealed before on the topic of vertical ridge augmentation. It is important to read this book armed with the knowledge from the first book as you will need it on this second journey with him.
A major part of this book comprises full-color, step-by-step images of patient cases. At times, reading it is like watching a surgical video, where the author ‘stops the video’ to discuss with you, the reader, what he is thinking and doing at that step, what his next step will be, and the reason for it.
Included again are the well-appreciated ‘Lessons learned’ sections, where the learning objectives are emphasized and further notes given, including ways to further improve the techniques. The section on the mandible is more detailed in this book, with the focus on larger defects and the different surgical steps in native, fibrotic, and scarred tissue types around the mental nerve during flap advancement.
In addition, light is shed on the detail in treating the anterior maxilla, which has not been published previously. It includes treatment options such as the fast track, the safe track, and the technical track of soft tissue reconstruction in conjunction with bone grafting as well as papilla reconstructions after bone regeneration. The section on the posterior maxilla hopes to resolve issues such as the management and complications of combined ridge and sinus grafting, including difficulties such as the lack of buccal, crestal or nasal bony walls of the posterior maxilla before bone grafting.
In this must-have new publication, the procedures are kept simple, repeatable, and biologically sound. The techniques presented are not overcomplicated; they are simple treatment strategies with lower complication rates and more predictability in the final outcome.
Bone loss is still a major issue that dentists encounter, but it is a complication that can be prevented. By combining clinical experience with peer-reviewed scientific evidence, the author of this book has put together a guide that any implant specialist will find invaluable to prevent bone loss in their patients. Different strategies are presented that can be used to achieve zero bone loss years after treatment. Because successful treatment depends on both the surgical and prosthetic components, the book is divided into two parts, each focusing in depth on what must be done in each phase to promote bone stability. Case presentations detail many types of clinical situations, implant choices, and prosthetic solutions, all backed by evidence-based clinical studies that have proven success.
