Rational root canal treatment in practice/ by John M Whitworth.

D 617.6262 W57

Endodontics is one of the fastest-growing aspects of everyday clinical practice. Linked to the sustained growth in endodontics is the introduction of many new instruments, materials and techniques. Keeping abreast of these diverse developments and applying them to the best advantage clinically is a challenge for the specialist, let alone the hard-pressed dental practitioner. Rational Root Canal Treatment in Practice – Volume 2 of the Quintessentials Series – has been written to help all those practising endodontics to meet this challenge. From anatomical considerations through the “thrill of the fill” and pointers to long-term outcomes, the many complexities of state-of-the-art endodontics are explained and beautifully illustrated in most careful detail. Rational Root Canal Treatment in Practice is a valuable volume in the Quintessentials for General Dental Practitioners Series – an outstanding self-contained update for practitioners and students.

Evidence-based dentistry for the dental hygienist / edited by Julie Frantsve-Hawley.

D 617.6891 E93

Like any other dental professional, dental hygienists must practice evidence-based dentistry (EBD) to provide the best care to their patients, whether it be through scaling and root planing, caries prevention, or patient education. This book is intended as a textbook for dental hygienists to learn the importance of EBD in the practice of dental hygiene as well as how to implement EBD practices and share EBD findings among office staff. As the dental knowledge base evolves and scientific discoveries are made, dental hygienists must understand how to seek out and evaluate findings and, if appropriate, apply them in their clinical practice, and this book provides all the necessary tools to do just that.

Title: Multidimensional assessments on outreach dental services for older persons using long-term care services in Hong Kong

Abstract: Older persons using long-term care (LTC) services in Hong Kong are, in general, frail and suffering from various kinds of physical and/or mental impairment. Due to the frailty, a lower ability to take care of themselves and irregular dental checkup habit, the LTC users have unsatisfactory oral health status. Outreach dental service teams (ODT) program for the older persons is one of the major projects subsidized by the Hong Kong Government. This program targets at improving oral health of institutionalized older persons and older persons using day care centers/units through oral health education and provision of on-site dental treatments.

The aims of this study are to investigate the achievements and deficiencies of the ODT program from 3 dimensions: the recipients, the providers and the administrators of this outreach dental service.  Both quantitative and qualitative methods will be employed.

Title: Development of an instrument to assess patients’ expectations of dental implant

Abstract: The public awareness of the benefits of dental implant therapy has increased recently. However, most patients are unaware of what the process details and information from Internet may cause unrealistic expectations that the treatment team cannot attain. Fulfilled expectations together with the actual treatment might be significant factors to patients’ satisfaction and good compliance. However, little is known that what patient’s expectation is on treatment with dental implant and how these expectations formed. An instrument to assess patients’ expectations of dental implants was developed based on Bowling’s Model of PEHC. Initial testing confirmed good-to-excellent face and content validity(CVI-clarity ratings ranged from 0.6 to 1.0 with a mean of 0.8. CVI-relevant ranged from 0.6 to 1.0 with a mean of 0.9). Further psychometric testing of the instrument (validity and reliability) is planned.

Title: Assessing the effect of viewing method on the perceived severity of a facial deformity and the outcomes of cleft surgery

Abstract: Over the last decade the use of three-dimensional (3D) imaging in dentistry has become routine. It is now possible to capture surfaces and volumes of the head and neck region with the appropriate scanning equipment. At present the images are used for diagnostic and planning purposes as well as patient records.

The 3D information provides co-ordinate data for quantitative assessment of anatomical structures in the form of 3D linear measurements and changes in the 3D position of landmarks. The data is further utilized in the form of “rendered” images to visualise the 3D surface with or without texture. Textured images can be generated using stereophotogrammetry and using the process of triangulation and perspective projection give rise to the so-called 3D image we are used to viewing on a conventional two-dimensional computer screen.

Even though the image is rich in co-ordinate data and can be viewed in “3D” the true perception of depth is not experienced until the images are viewed using stereoscopic viewers e.g. active or passive 3D projection systems.

One of the perceived advantages of 3D imaging is the ability to capture a “life-like” topographical representation of the patient’s facial morphology for later reference. To date very few studies have tested the “outcome” of the effects of different viewing methods i.e. 2D, conventional 3D and stereoscopic projected 3D. The aim of this study is to assess the effect of viewing method on the perceived severity of facial deformity and the outcomes of cleft surgery based on study models and facial photographs.
