Contemporary Protocols for Anterior Single-Tooth Implants
Gamborena, Iñaki / Blatz, Markus
This book beautifully showcases the concepts, materials, and techniques essential to mastering the most demanding of all surgical and restorative challenges, the anterior single-tooth implant. To achieve the long-lasting esthetic and functional results displayed in this clinical masterpiece, one must attend to the myriad details associated with each phase of treatment. Designed for a new generation of visually oriented learners, the book presents step-by-step clinical procedures that unfold like the frames of a film, so that readers may “watch” at their own pace and pause as necessary to contemplate these fine details. This experience will spark the curiosity, creativity, and imagination of even the most veteran surgeon.
Indications, Limits and Clinical Protocols with the Adjunctive Use of Diode Laser
This text presents detailed information about “gold standard” patient examination methods and clear clinical treatment protocols, reviewing periodontal instruments, techniques, and procedures, from the first visit to reevaluation, culminating in long-lasting effective maintenance therapy. Following proper diagnosis, nonsurgical periodontal treatment is characterized by home care and effective debridement. The patient’s hygiene performance is the most significant factor influencing the success of any dental treatment and maintenance of clinical stability. Therapeutic options should always be modulated in a specific, personalized manner for each patient and each site in the oral cavity. Mechanical and manual instrumentation is technique sensitive. The ultimate goal is, without exception, to remove the pathogenic noxa in the most complete and effective manner, respecting tissue integrity and biology. The highly instructive clinical photographs and numerous drawings explain in detail how to acquire or correct operating techniques, adopting methods of instrumentation refined by the author.

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.
Renvert, Stefan / Giovannoli, Jean-Louis
This book is the fruit of a long friendship between two periodontists whose aim is to promote periodontal health in Europe. They have been actively involved in the activities of the European Federation of Periodontology for the past 20 years and have participated together in the organizing committees of several EuroPerio meetings. Both authors have considerable clinical experience in periodontology and implantology.
Chapple, Iain L. C. / Hamburger, John
Periodontal Medicine is a sub-discipline of Periodontology which deals with non-plaque-induced conditions/lesions of the periodontal tissues, including the periodontal manifestations of systemic diseases and syndromes. It reminds us of the often forgotten and frequently ignored medical aspects of a traditionally surgical discipline. This heavily illustrated text attempts to guide the reader through over 100 conditions using their clinical presentation as the guiding principle to categorization.
This book addresses dental students, general dentists and periodontists who intend to learn about the use of regenerative procedures in periodontology. Its main goal is to provide the clinician with an overview on biological and clinical concepts related to regenerative modalities in various types of periodontal defects.
A Study Guide
This comprehensive and fully up-to-date review manual provides all the information a prospective candidate needs to prepare for the American Board of Periodontology Qualifying Examination. Set in a question/answer format, the text provides complete yet succinct, evidence-based responses to questions with references to pertinent research. Each chapter covers its topic in full, divided into sections for easy reference. When appropriate, answers are provided as lists, tables, and with graphic design elements to aid in memorization and recall. Clinical images are also included as needed to elucidate the text. The final chapter provides sample case presentations with questions to allow the reader to prepare for the protocol portion of the exam and offers helpful advice such as when a well-supported response based on sound rationale, rather than a specific answer, is required. A highly recommended resource for all those seeking certification or recertification from the American Board of Periodontology.
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.
A Non-Surgical Approach
Heasman, Peter A. / Preshaw, Philip M. / Robertson, Pauline
Non-surgical treatment of patients with gingival and periodontal diseases can be undertaken by the general dental practitioner through the management of common and well-established risk-factors and the use of treatments adjunctive to conventional methods of scaling and root surface instrumentation. The goals and objectives of these procedures and the importance of supportive periodontal care are fully examined in this book.
Clinical Evidence & Therapeutic Guidelines
Eliades, Theodore / Katsaros, Christos (Ed.)
Although most orthodontic curricula provide courses on interdisciplinary orthodontic-periodontic treatment, there are still surprisingly few resources on the topic. Written by leading scholars in the field, this book provides a broad analysis of the topic from both the periodontal and orthodontic perspectives. The authors systematically analyze the scientific and clinical interactions of these specialties by reviewing all the available evidence and using case studies to demonstrate principles discussed in theory. The result is a text that outlines the treatment fundamentals and shows how to improve the therapeutic outcomes involving orthodontic-periodontic interventions.
