Aufgrund der stetig wachsenden Zahl älterer Menschen rücken die Probleme der Betagten und Hochbetagten immer mehr in den Vordergrund der zahnärztlichen Tätigkeit.
Die täglichen Erfahrungen in der zahnärztlichen Praxis lehren uns, dass ganz individuelle Lebenserfahrungen, erhebliche Unterschiede im Allgemeinzustand und uneinheitliche finanzielle Verhältnisses ältere Menschen zu einer extrem heterogenen Patientengruppe machen und der Umgang mit den Senioren allen Beteiligten oftmals ein hohes Maß an Wissen, Erfahrung und Toleranz abverlangt. Die Betagten und Hochbetagten benötigen oft umfangreiche Rehabilitation im stomatognathen System, wobei die Mundgesundheit jedoch nur ein Teilbereich ist, der zur Lebensqualität beiträgt.
Dieses Buch bietet eine Zusammenstellung verschiedener multidisziplinär angelegter Kapitel, die dabei helfen soll, die komplexen, über die Zahnmedizin hinausgehenden Zusammenhänge besser zu verstehen. Zahlreiche Ratschläge und Tipps der einzelnen Autoren machen die täglich vom Zahnarzt abverlangten Entscheidungen in Zusammenarbeit mit den Betagten und Hochbetagten leichter.
van der Linden, Frans P. G. M.
For almost three decades, Prof van der Linden’s classic text, Development of the Dentition, has been the international standard reference in its field. Now, he has updated those concepts in a new edition. Starting with tooth formation and the development of the deciduous dentition, the author systematically takes the reader through the transition to the permanent dentition and through the aging of the dentition. Emphasis is placed on the relationships among the development of the dentition, the growth of the face, and funcational factors. Subsequently, the development of orthodontic malocclusions is presented, followed by the effects of untimely loss of deciduous teeth.

A Study Guide
Blicher, Brooke / Pryles, Rebekah Lucier / Lin, Jarshen
This comprehensive study guide provides an essential framework for reviewing the core material covered by the board examinations and helps readers understanding how best to prepare for them. With a focus toward clinical applications, the key topics of endodontics are covered in full, and the complex subjects of trauma and resorption are addressed in separate chapters with diagnosis and treatment protocols particular to these entities. To underscore the format of the oral examination, the authors have divided each chapter into the sections used in the examination — basic sciences, medicine, diagnosis, treatment protocols, prognosis, and complications. In addition, this book provides a comprehensive review of the scientific literature. Frequent references to peer-reviewed journal articles and endodontics textbooks also guide readers for further study and focus.
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.
Louise, Francis / Dragan, Oana
Sinus augmentation has become a routine surgical procedure to increase the height of the edentulous atrophied posterior maxilla. Numerous techniques have been used successfully, allowing a high survival rate of implants placed after sinus elevation. This book highlights the anatomical landmarks and describes, using clinical cases, the latest ultrasonic devices used for both lateral and crestal approaches, including their possible complications. With step-by-step clinical images, this book will help the clinician to make rational decisions for maxillary sinus augmentation, and to treat any complications that occur during surgery. This is an extremely accessible and up-to-date resource that every dentist should have in their office, for clinical guidance in their treatment planning or when performing sinus augmentation.
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.
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.
