Mini-implants : the orthodontics of the future / Skander Ellouze, Francois Darque ; traduit du Francais par George Morgan.

D 617.644 E4

Mini-implants offer a useful orthodontic anchorage solution with relatively simple placement that does not rely on patient cooperation and is reliable. This comprehensive book presents the essentials of orthodontic treatment using mini-implants and outlines selection, placement, biomechanics, diagnosis, and treatment strategies. The authors detail the biomechanics application of mini-screw-supported alveolar anchorage in precise and effective therapeutic protocols to treat every type of malocclusion, including orthodontic movements that were difficult or even impossible to achieve previously. The authors also discuss the management of mini-implants in multidisciplinary treatment. With clearly defined indications, codified protocol, and reproducible therapeutic efficacy and clinical results, this book details a full-fledged treatment system that uses mini-implants to achieve functional and esthetic outcomes.

Routes for excellence in restorative dentistry : mastery for beginners and experts / Luiz Narciso Baratieri [and 11 others].

D 617.62 B2 r

Although true mastery in restorative dentistry requires a lifetime of learning and improvement, this two-volume compendium distills many essential clinical insights for the student clinician who is learning the craft of restorative dentistry. Envisioned as a comprehensive clinical textbook, this book elucidates the fundamental concepts of restorative dentistry and illustrates procedures step-by-step to ensure precision in esthetics, biomechanics, and function. The authors provide an up-to-date review of direct and indirect restorative techniques and cover the most important protocols used in daily clinical practice. As the name Routes suggests, there are many different ways to approach restorative treatment, and this book will prepare clinicians to successfully navigate treatment options and the complexity of dental restoration to attain excellence in their clinical practice.

Access the latest articles from Routledge Area Studies

Focus on: China

This wide-ranging series will present research from a number of disciplines, including Education, Geography, Art and Religion. Each month, a specific theme will be explored, giving greater academic insight into this global superpower. Free access is available for all articles until the end of 2015. HKUL users can continue to access our subscribed articles.

Please click on a month/theme below to start your research today:

 

March: Industry and Business

Over the past several decades, China has risen to prominence as forerunners in many industries and business sectors, including finance, agriculture, clothing and in modern times especially, technology. Whilst these traditional industries are popularly associated with the country’s ever-growing superpower image, issues such as restrictions to entrepreneurship and other routes of personal innovation continue to cause debate in the Western world and beyond.

 

April: Culture

The subject of Chinese culture can be approached from a myriad of avenues. The government’s maintenance of cultural security and national identity; the interaction of global trends and influences with local cultures; understanding driving forces behind the emergence and prosperity of China’s changing cultural industries; Western interpretations of Chinese culture, consumerism and aspirationalism; the rise of “digital democracy” and the economy of grassroots culture in China, and many more issues constitute to an exciting field of study.
