Innovation in operative dentistry often misses out on fanfare, but it is the heart and soul of general clinical practice and has a lasting impact on patient care. Dentistry has undergone major transformation in recent years, and this beautifully illustrated book documents the most significant developments in technology as well as changes in scientific understanding. The 25 substantive chapters cover the broad scope of restorative and preventative dentistry with topics including caries prevention, magnification in restorative dentistry, minimally invasive preparations, adhesive techniques, bleaching, dental erosion, endodontic therapies, and halitosis.


A clinical guide to endodontics / Peter Carrotte.

D 617.626 C31

The aim of this clinical guide is to guide practitioners through the everyday treatment of teeth with endodontic problems. The book takes the reader through not only the basics of the subject, but also the ‘dos’ and don’ts’ of particular situations such as endodontic problems and emergencies.

This fully updated and expanded 4th edition includes new information on:
• Current research into microbial and diagnostic aspects of endodontics
• The thinking behind, and practice of, modern paediatric endodontics
• The use of Nickel Titanium rotary instruments for canal preparation
• References to the latest endodontic literature to assist wider study of the subject


Periodontal regenerative therapy / [edited by] Anton Sculean ; [foreword by William V. Giannobile].

D 617.664 P44 S

This book presents an overview of the use of contemporary regenerative techniques in the treatment of periodontal osseous and soft tissue defects. Each chapter is designed to cover an important aspect related to periodontal regeneration, including an understanding of periodontium anatomy, biologic wound healing, regenerative materials, surgical techniques, and clinical applications. By focusing on the most relevant regenerative materials and procedures, the authors present effective treatment paradigms that incorporate biologic concepts and biomaterial enhancements with predictable surgical techniques. Well-documented clinical cases emphasize the management of critical treatment factors as well as the use of proven techniques that can optimize treatment outcomes. A must-read for any practitioner with an interest in the rationale, possibilities, and limitations of regenerative procedures of periodontal therapy.
