Clinical application of computer-guided implant surgery / Andreas Parashis, Panagiotis Diamantopoulos.

D 617.693 P22

Computer-guided implant placement (CGIP) helps clinicians precisely implement a treatment plan and accurately place implants with the use of three-dimensional interactive imaging software. The software enables the direct link between anatomic interpretation, surgical and prosthetic treatment planning, and precise surgical execution. Bone preparation, in relation to the position, angle, and depth of the implant, is guided through computerized digital procedures and patient-specific surgical guides are developed to obtain the optimum result of the insertion of implants in predetermined, prosthetically acceptable positions.

In color throughout, Clinical Application of Computer-Guided Implant Surgery covers the practical application of CGIP in a simple but detailed manner. Step by step, the book guides you on diagnosis and treatment planning, applying the specialized software, and using the necessary instruments and surgical guides. It also explores the strengths and weaknesses of CGIP and discusses literature related to the accuracy and clinical relevance of CGIP.




An introduction to orthodontics / Laura Mitchell ; with contributions from Simon J. Littlewood, Zararna L. Nelson-Moon, Fiona Dyer.

D 617.64 M68

This textbook is highly illustrated throughout, including over 700 diagrams, clinical photographs and illustrated case studies that show the long-term planning and progress of orthodontic treatment. Each chapter is enhanced by learning objectives, key points boxes, annotated references, and directions to relevant Cochrane reviews. The text has a user-friendly design to ensure that content is clear and accessible for deep study or quick reference.

Thoroughly updated and now in its fourth edition, An iIntroduction to Orthodontics maintains its position as the essential reference and revision text in the field.

Title: The potential application of biguanide based compounds in dentistry

Abstract: Chlohexidine bigluconate containing products has been widely used in dentistry for prevention and treatment of periodontal disease and caries prevention. Polyguanidine oligomers, particularly polyhexamethylene biguanide (PHMB) oligomer, are used extensively and safely as disinfectants and biocides, which prevent the growth of different bacteria, fungi and yeasts. With the presence of the biguanide groups and a lipophilic part (alkyl chain) in the same molecule, both CHX and PHMB exhibit their high basicity renders the species in the protonated, cationic form at neutral, physiological pH-values. The study is to understand further the mechanisms of action of these compound against oral pathogens related to dental caries and periodontal diseases and investigate their potential use in dental applications.
