Tooth preparations: science & art / Clovis Pagani.

D 617.622 P129

Well-executed cavity preparation remains the primary hallmark determining the success of indirect restorative procedures. This book details the basic principles and sequencing of cavity preparation and outlines the different preparation designs indicated for a variety of clinical situations. With a focus on biologic care, preservation of tooth structure, and precision, the author provides special guidance on incorporating these principles into daily practice, and the sections on instrumentation underscore how to improve clinical dexterity and concentration. By featuring sophisticated 3D illustrations throughout to detail each preparation design step by step, this book elevates this fundamental part of operative dentistry to an art form.

 

Modern esthetic dentistry: an A to Z guided workflow / Vincenzo Musella.

D 617.627 M98

This atlas synthesizes the latest technologic advances in esthetic dentistry and shows how to successfully integrate them into clinical practice. Part I begins with a chapter on dental photography that focuses on the correct settings and use of equipment needed to obtain high-quality images for documentation and communication with patients and the laboratory. Subsequent chapters present the steps involved in the esthetic preview, which provides the opportunity to try out a proposed treatment and make adjustments before undertaking any procedures, increasing patient acceptance and satisfaction. Part II presents clinical cases demonstrating the inverse layering technique for direct and indirect restorations, and Part III features clinical cases showcasing both traditional and alternative uses of lithium disilicate, an advanced restorative material with high esthetic potential and good strength. This is an excellent resource for clinicians looking to incorporate the latest techniques for predictable and stable esthetic results.

 

Vertical and horizontal ridge augmentation: new perspectives / Istvan Urban.

D 617.674 U7 

This book expertly describes the key features of vertical and horizontal ridge augmentation, such as the surgical anatomy of the floor of the mouth, papilla reconstruction, the modified lingual flap and the preservation of the mental nerve during flap advancement, growth factor applications used in conjunction with perforated membranes, managing complications of membrane exposure and graft infections, and a step-by-step description of complete reconstruction of the severely resorbed maxillary ridge using GBR with simultaneous sinus augmentation. Almost all cases described include a retrospective section with suggestions on what could have been done differently to achieve even better results, making this book a frank, ambitious, and immensely informative text on the clinical practice of ridge augmentation with GBR.

South Korea: Making up for lost time

With a resounding electoral victory, the recent election of Moon Jae-in as South Korea’s new president has raised significant hope for change. But the president faces major challenges at home and abroad, including longstanding issues with the domestic economy, as well as a tense situation with North Korea as missile and nuclear tests continue apace.

So what can the new president realistically hope to achieve in office?

This whitepaper will assess the prospects of policy change under the new administration:

  • How successful will the president be at fulfilling his campaign pledges, including curbing the influence of the country’s predominant family controlled business conglomerates (chaebol), engineering new drivers of growth and tackling labour market reform?
  • Will there be a successful return to the ‘sunshine’ policy of engagement with North Korea?

Please click here to download this free whitepaper.
