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.
Structural, Periodontal, and Endodontic Aspects
The purpose of this book is to set out a simple yet rigorous protocol that can routinely be used to achieve satisfactory results for composite partial restorations. Inlays and onlays allow significant conservation of sound tooth structure without undermining the tooth’s mechanical and physical properties. Composite inlays offer two crucial properties: the opportunity for correction before cementation and, above all, long-term reparability.
A Guide for Practicing Dentists
Zarow, Maciej (Co-Authors: D’Arcangelo, Camillo / Felippe, Luis Antonio / Paniz, Gianluca / Paolone, Gaetano)
Written by an international group of renowned experts in the field of reconstruction of pulpless teeth, this is a very practical book explaining in detail, step by step, the general principles of correct decision-making in endodontics, reconstructions and aesthetics of root canal treated teeth. How to avoid fractures? Should we carry out retreatment, or use implants? Should we restore pulpless teeth with direct or indirect restorations? How we can bleach discolourations after teeth have been endo-treated? How can aesthetics be improved in compromised cases? Should we use fibre posts? How can sub-gingival defects be treated? Can we opt for porcelain veneers or ceramic crowns? The aim of the book is to answer these questions and help practising dentists make the right decisions, which often require making difficult choices. Each of the 10 chapters include detailed photographs of clinical cases, descriptions of technical procedures, and practical tips for dental practitioners.
Material Selection and Technique
Terry, Douglas A. / Geller, Willi
Restorative dentistry has seen dramatic advances in recent years, especially with the use of digital technologies, and this book provides the most up-to-date information on enhanced developments, materials, and techniques that have emerged since the publication of the second edition, offering the reader a completely updated, revised, and newly illustrated overview of modern esthetic and restorative dentistry complete with tutorial videos. New topics include web-based communication with the laboratory, indirect composite chairside CAD/CAM restorations, a comparison of digital and conventional techniques, the resin composite injection technique, as well as updated information on composites and ceramic systems, including esthetic zirconia. New cases illustrate the maintenance of esthetic restorative materials, esthetic contouring, immediate dentin sealing, and novel surgical techniques such as lip repositioning, connective tissue grafting, and ridge preservation with collagen membranes. Dr Terry expanded his team of editorial reviewers to include the best minds in research and clinical practice, and the final product is a testament to his dedication to patient satisfaction and treatment success. The techniques demonstrated in this book will no doubt elevate your practice to the next level.
Etiology, Diagnosis, and Treatment
Soares, Paulo V. / Grippo, John O. (Ed.)
Cervical dentin hypersensitivity (CDH) and noncarious cervical lesions (NCCLs) are common findings in modern clinical practice. Although research has shown that NCCLs are a multifactorial condition involving the three mechanisms of stress, biocorrosion, and friction, few dentists know how to treat them effectively. Similarly, CDH has been an enigma for many years, and research has focused on etiology instead of treatment. In addition, little attention has been given to their mutual etiologic mechanisms of cervical stress concentration from occlusal loading and endogenous/exogenous biocorrosion. Therefore, this book approaches CDH and NCCLs together and outlines the history, mechanisms, and, most important, the clinical methods of treatment for these pathologies. It is about time we as dentists learn how to treat and prevent these conditions in clinical practice. This involves greater diagnostic effort and alteration of treatment protocols to (1) reduce dietary intake/exposure to acids, (2) manage reflux diseases, and (3) consider the significance of occlusal therapies. After reading this book, the student or clinician will be able to diagnose and treat clinical cases of NCCLs and CDH.

The creator of Atraumatic Restorative Treatment (ART) has written the definitive guide to the science and practicality of both ART and its emerging sister philosophy Minimal Intervention Dentistry (MID) which together will form the future of managing dental caries.
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.
