    Essential Orthodontics is a comprehensive introduction to the biological principles of orthodontics. This book covers the why, when and how of orthodontics, enabling readers to identify which individuals need to be treated, to diagnose based on individual dentofacial development, and to understand the mechanical principles and tissue responses involved. Divided into three parts, this authoritative resource covers pretreatment considerations, treatment principles of skeletal and dentoalveolar anomalies, and tissue response to orthodontic and orthopaedic forces.

    Classification of malocclusions and craniofacial growth and development are discussed, and the text explores how to distinguish between normal occlusion and malocclusions. Essential Orthodontics outlines how to perform a comprehensive orthodontic examination leading to an orthodontic diagnosis, and the formation of a treatment plan. Following a student-friendly layout with key objectives and chapter summaries, Essential Orthodontics is an accessible yet comprehensive resource for both undergraduate and postgraduate dental students.

    En parodontie, le diagnostic représente le premier acte réalisé par le praticien. Il consiste à déterminer le plus précisément possible les raisons pour lesquelles le parodonte est affecté. Ce diagnostic a évidemment pour but de rassurer le patient et de l'informer des solutions thérapeutiques disponibles. Ce Mémento a pour ambition de décrire les différentes caractéristiques cliniques et para-cliniques des maladies parodontales les plus fréquemment rencontrées en pratique quotidienne. Il a été rédigé en accordant le plus de place possible aux informations récentes nécessaires à l'établissement du diagnostic étiologique. Le praticien verra donc comment répondre aux six questions suivantes : Quel est le type de pathologie ? Quelle est la nature de la flore sous-gingivale ? Quel est l'état d'activité de la pathologie ? Quel est le stade d'avancement de la pathologie ? Quelle est l'intensité du risque de récidive après traitement ? Quels sont les éléments qui vont compliquer le traitement parodontal ? Grâce à la méthode proposée par l'auteur, le chirurgien-dentiste appréciera de s'éloigner du simple enregistrement des symptômes et du concept "hygiène + facteurs iatrogènes = poches parodontales" qui a longtemps été le seul modèle étiologique disponible en parodontie !

    This book is a practical and detailed guide on how to perform a range of surgical techniques for facial bone contouring. Based on the clinical experiences gained by the authors while carrying out more than 10,000 facial bone surgeries at their clinical institute in Seoul, Korea, each procedure is meticulously described and illustrated, step by step. Importantly, careful attention is paid to the impact of ethnic differences on surgical technique and goals, drawing on lessons learned during the treatment of patients from approximately 30 countries. Readers will also find instructive accompanying case studies and copious guidance on preoperative patient assessment, potential complications, and complication management. Facial bone contouring surgery has been gaining popularity not only in many Asian countries but also in Western countries, especially those in which there are sizable Asian populations. In enabling readers to learn and master the various techniques of facial bone surgery, and to achieve optimal outcomes in clinical practice, the book will be of immense value to plastic surgeons in both Asia and the West.

    Anchorage control is one of the most challenging tasks in orthodontic treatment. Many different types of appliance are used to control anchorage, but an excellent outcome may be difficult to achieve owing to either poor mechanics or inadequate patient compliance. Recently, temporary skeletal anchorage devices (TSADs) have become popular in orthodontics. Some orthodontic movements that are now possible using TSADs were previously considered almost impossible with traditional orthodontic appliances. Several different types of TSAD are currently available, and in choosing between them orthodontists are obliged to rely on the information provided by manufacturers, which is often not based on scientific evidence. This book therefore presents the various design characteristics of TSADs and provides up-to-date scientific evidence to assist orthodontists in selecting the best TSADs for their patients.

    This book examines all aspects of the progress being made towards the development of highly specific and sensitive biomarkers that will overcome the shortcomings of clinical assessments in periodontics. The opening chapters present the basic anatomic features of periodontal tissues, outline the nature and pathogenic mechanisms of periodontal diseases, and discuss both conventional and novel methods of diagnosis with reference to their specificity and sensitivity. The potential role of biomarkers in periodontal diagnosis is then presented in the light of the published data. The biological samples in which potential biomarkers are sought are evaluated comparatively, drawing attention to their strengths and weaknesses, and the available technologies for biomarker studies are reviewed. The potential benefits of biomarkers are also discussed with regard to the possible bidirectional interactions between periodontal diseases and systemic health. Finally, the past, present, and future of periodontics are examined from a broader perspective. Readers will find the book to be an ideal summary of the state of the art in the field as biomarkers emerge that promise to facilitate periodontal diagnostics and permit timely, personally tailored interventions.

    This book aims to provide clinicians with a refined understanding of the biology that underlies periodontal diseases, thereby offering a sound basis for improved clinical decision making with regard to prevention strategies, diagnosis, and therapy. All significant aspects of periodontal pathogenesis are covered, including the roles played by the oral microbiome and biofilms, bacterial virulence factors, cells of the immune system, matrix metalloproteinases, proinflammatory and osteolytic cytokines, genetic factors, and antimicrobial peptides. Periodontal diseases are among the most common infectious diseases in humans, and the primary cause of tooth loss in adults. The functional and esthetic problems associated with these diseases compromise quality of life, and their treatment imposes large financial burdens on national health systems and private patients. Up-to-date knowledge of periodontal pathogenesis is therefore essential for the contemporary clinician. This book, written by experts from Europe and the Americas, delivers such knowledge in an accessible, clinician-friendly way.

    This book is designed to help dentists in general practice to improve the results of prosthetic procedures in medically compromised and elderly patients. In particular, it critically scrutinizes various dogmas that govern practitioners approaches yet lack sound scientific support and often have an adverse effect on outcomes. Attention is drawn to straightforward procedures that offer significant clinical benefits and to aspects that are too often neglected, such as the impact of systemic diseases. New light is cast, for example, on the taking of dental impressions, the treatment of malocclusions, the making of jaw relation records, the relationship between denture quality and patient satisfaction, and the use of implant-supported overdentures versus traditional complete prostheses (dentures). As Albert Einstein once said, "It is what we think we know that prevents us from learning more." Readers will find that this book helps them to re-examine taken-for-granted elements of their practice, leading to improved care and patient satisfaction.

Prepared by a world-renowned expert, the second edition of this highly illustrated atlas explains the Tip-Edge technique from first principles and now includes important advances in the field, in particular the Plus bracket, an innovation which will greatly enhance the use of this rapidly emerging technique. Clearly written with liberal use of case studies, high quality photographs and line artwork, this atlas is ideal for all orthodontists who are interested in expanding their skills to include the Tip-Edge Plus technique.

    • Comprehensive illustrated textbook on the use of Tip-Edge by a world leader in its clinical development
    • More than 500 illustrations, many in full colour, present clinical, diagnostic and practical information in an easy-to-follow manner
    • Explains the demonstrably superior capabilities of Tip Edge and Plus over conventional bracket systems
    • Demonstrates the scope of the technique by numerous case histories which show the successful management of more difficult cases that often cannot be addressed by conventional means
    • Ideal for practitioners new to the appliance and those familiar with it who need to keep abreast of advances in the field
    • Includes all the new improvements and modifications in this rapidly developing technique, in particular, the Plus bracket
    • New clinical cases show the effectiveness of Tip-Edge Plus treatment in both American and British patients

    This manual will help oral implantologists to understand the principles that underlie the use of basal implants as a means to provide simple solutions to complex and highly demanding clinical situations without the need for prior bone grafting. It will also serve as a richly illustrated practical guide to application of the technique. The book is in three parts, the first of which discusses basic principles and related themes, including osteogenesis, osseointegration, cortical anchorage stability, biomechanics, surgical techniques, and basal implant prosthodontics. Step-by-step guidance is then offered on the application of these principles, focusing on operating techniques, 3D treatment planning, transitional and final screw-secured prostheses, and postoperative follow-up. The third part of the book addresses a wide range of clinical situations that can be treated by basal implantology, with particular attention to the treatment of high, thin alveolar ridges and the atrophic maxilla and mandible and to the correction of previous implant failures, as well as complications and postimplantation neuropathies.
