Wassell, Robert / Naru, Amar / Steele, Jimmy / Nohl, Francis
This book acknowledges the importance of adopting a clinical approach to understanding occlusion, and demystifies it for dentists and students. Breaking the mould of traditional texts, the figures are brought to life with a narrated DVD. Dr Naru’s stunning 3D animations bring great clarity to understanding the sometimes catastrophic effects of jaw movement. The clinical videos show comprehensively the process of investigating and managing real life occlusal problems. The second edition provides many new figures and important updates to the text.
Science, Art and Creativity
This book describes a methodology for creating biomimetic restorations that harmonize with the remaining natural teeth. The author analyze the methodology for each phase of work, including the diagnosis and treatment planning, the stages of preparation and fabrication, and the cementation of the definitive restoration. All the essential components are covered, including occlusal analysis, soft tissue management, color selection, implant considerations, and guidelines for home maintenance. The merits of a multidisciplinary approach are shown within the a functional esthetic paradigm in which the prosthodontist, surgeon, orthodontist, and dental technician work as a close-knit team to ensure a predictable and reproducible result.
Wax-Up Techniques in Aesthetics and Functional Occlusion
Fabrication of posterior prosthetic teeth is an art that requires technicians to reproduce the minute details of occlusal form using difficult methods of wax-up. Written for students as well as experienced clinicians, this landmark book will change the way that technicians wax up teeth.
This book guides readers, step-by-step, through the author’s revolutionary wax-up technique to recreate the complex morphology of premolar and molar teeth. Lavishly illustrated throughout, each chapter builds technical knowledge with chapters on nomenclature, morphology, wax handling and application, functional wax-up sequences for maxillary and mandibular dentition, and adhesive cementation and culminates in a series of impressive clinical cases. A must-have resource for any dental technician wanting to review occlusal form and improve the functional morphology of posterior restorations.
Volume 1: Esthetic Analysis: A Systematic Approach to Prosthetic Treatment
Advances in technology and biomaterials have dramatically expanded the possibilities for esthetic optimization in restorative dentistry. Too often, however, such treatment focuses exclusively on the dental area and fails to consider the overall facial composition. This easy-to-read text provides the clinician with a systematic approach to facial evaluation during esthetic treatment planning. Separate chapters guide the reader to an understanding of the esthetic parameters involved in facial, dentolabial, phonetic, dental, and gingival analysis. Each chapter presents prosthetic considerations and applications that allow the clinician to formulate an optimal treatment plan based on the individual clinical situation of the patient. Also provided is an esthetic checklist that allows the clinician to apply the principles described in the text to everyday practice. Amply illustrated, this text is an invaluable tool for all clinicians practicing esthetic and restorative dentistry.
Volume 2: Prosthetic Treatment: A Systematic Approach to Esthetic, Biologic and Functional Integration
Fradeani, Mauro/ Barducci, Giancarlo
This much-anticipated book presents the procedural phases required to achieve optimal results in the esthetic rehabilitation of patients in need of fixed prostheses. Communication between the clinician and the technician, which is essential to the esthetic, biologic, and functional integration of the prosthetic rehabilitation, is highlighted through a step-by-step presentation of all clinical and laboratory procedures. Chapters demonstrate methods to obtain accurate facebow recordings, impression materials and techniques, fabrication of provisional restorations, and incorporation of interdisciplinary therapies for ideal comfort and esthetics. All of this information is transferred to the final restorations, which should provide patients with long-term prosthetic solutions exhibiting appropriate fit, form, and function. Hundreds of full-color clinical photographs and detailed illustrations accompany each treatment phase and situation described. This beautiful book picks up where Volume 1 ended and delivers its message with equal clarity and precision.
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.
A Patient-Oriented Strategy: Planning | Treatment Procedures | Longevity | Esthetics | Function | Dental Technology
Wolfart, Stefan / Contributors: Harder, Sönke / Reich, Sven / Sailer, Irena / Weber, Volker
While a wealth of specialist literature is available on the surgical aspects of implant dentistry, there is no comprehensive, systematic textbook on the implant-supported prosthodontic rehabilitation of the patient – which is the true goal of almost every implant treatment.
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.
Science & Art
Tooth Preparations: Science & Art by Prof. Clovis Pagani and co-authors is a fully illustrated guide on tooth preparations, a fundamental part of daily dental practice. It contains essential theory and sound practice, including more than 700 high-quality 3D images. The most current concepts on tooth preparations for indirect restorations are covered, with a focus on biological care, preservation in operative procedure, and precision. The book is divided into eight chapters, covering topics such as restorative planning; state-of-the-art principles, sequences, and tools for preparations; intra- and extracoronal restorations; compromised teeth; adhesive milled restorations; minimally invasive preparations; and preparations for CAD/CAM restorations. This book provides a clear and objective outline of different conservative preparation designs indicated for a variety of clinical situations and is an indispensable addition to the collection of all restorative dentists.
