Khademi, John (with contributions by Carr, Gary B. / Schwartz, Richard S. / Trudeau, Michael)
This book encourages endodontists to develop a sound technical and theoretical understanding of CBCT. The authors compare the capabilities of modern CBCT imaging with traditional radiography and also present vital information about image interpretation and perception to increase competence and confidence in CBCT interpretation and minimize overdiagnosis and subsequent overtreatment.
Diagnostics, Biomechanics, Planning and Treatment
Schupp, Werner / Haubrich, Julia
This book presents useful tips and strategies on how to integrate the Invisalign system successfully into clinical practice. The authors review the diagnostic protocols and the biomechanics of aligners before presenting Invisalign treatment protocols. With the support of accompanying case documentation, discussion of each malocclusion includes information on the associated symptoms, the rationale behind the selected treatment approaches, and the various outcomes achieved. The last section of the book deals with the advantages of the Invisalign system, and is intended to decide help patients and clinicians whether this system can provide optimal treatment outcomes in particular clinical situations. This is a practical manual for any clinician interested in the novel treatment modality of aligner orthodontics.
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.

Cone beam imaging is fast becoming common place in dental practices for every specialty, and this best-selling book has been updated to reflect the ways in which cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is being used by dental practitioners. As before, the book introduces readers to the different ways of viewing CBCT data sets and guides clinicians in identifying familiar and unfamiliar anatomical landmarks in the three planes of section (axial, sagittal, and coronal). New to this edition are chapters presenting endodontic applications of CBCT, selected cases from radiology practice, and issues of risk and liability associated with capturing CBCT data. In addition, the anatomy chapter has been updated with many new illustrations and a new section on small-volume anatomy. Comprehensive case presentations demonstrate the diagnostic and treatment-planning capabilities of CBCT in its full range of applications while at the same time highlighting situations in which traditional radiographic imaging will suffice.
A Desk Reference
Schwartz, Richard S. / Canakapalli, Venkat / Illustrations by Horalek, Anthony L. (Ed.)
This book is a compilation of practical information shared by some of the finest clinical endodontists in the world. Most of the chapters are short and focus on how to perform a single clinical procedure. They are written in simple language with ample photographic support. This book provides guidance for most common endodontic procedures but also for some procedures that are less common, such as how to treat teeth containing Russian Red; surgical extrusion; root submergence; and decompression. Because most of the procedures described are performed under a dental operating microscope, there are chapters on operatory design for microscopic endodontics, microscope ergonomics for the doctor and assistant, and how to set up and use a microscope for photography and video documentation. In addition, two chapters are devoted exclusively to understanding and applying CBCT imaging. Written at a specialist level, the book serves as a desk reference for clinical procedures and as a daily practical guide, but it contains information that is useful to anyone who aspires to perform endodontics at a high level.
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.
Principles and Practice
Nanda, Ram S. / Tosun, Yahya S.
Though comprehensive diagnosis and treatment planning set the stage for effective orthodontic treatment, it is a clear understanding of the fundamental biomechanical principles behind orthodontic force that allows the clinician to design the most favorable appliances and systems. Correct application of the principles of biomechanics leads to highly efficient and successful orthodontic treatment; a lack of proper understanding produces ineffectual systems that may even lead to collateral tissue damage. In addition, knowledge about the properties of the latest wire, bracket, and bonding materials and designs is a key factor in the configuration of successful orthodontic appliances.
This essential book introduces students of orthodontics to the evolution of orthodontic technology and the properties of orthodontic materials, and outlines the essential mechanical principles behind successful orthodontic treatment.
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.
Clear aligners are the future of orthodontics, but digital orthodontics evolves so rapidly that it is hard to keep pace. This book approaches clear aligner treatment from a diagnosis and treatment-planning perspective, discussing time-tested orthodontic principles like biomechanics and anchorage and demonstrating how to apply them to orthodontic cases using these appliances. Each chapter explains how to use clear aligners to treat a given malocclusion and teaches clinicians how to program a suitable treatment plan using available software, how to design the digital tooth movements to match the treatment goals, and finally how execute the treatment clinically and finish the case well. This clinical handbook will prepare orthodontists and dental students to exceed patient expectations with the most esthetic orthodontic appliance currently available.
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.

In recent years, cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) has become much more widely available and utilised in all aspects of dentistry, including endodontics. Cone Beam Computed Tomography in Endodontics is designed to inform readers about the appropriate use of CBCT in endodontics, and enhance their clinical practice with this exciting imaging modality.
