Oral and cranial implants: recent research developments / Hugh Devlin, Ichiro Nishimura, editors.

D 617.674 O63 D49

 

Dentists are routinely faced with a huge choice of implant systems from different manufacturers, each of whom claims that its own particular system has advantages over the others. There is consequently a need for an evidence-based review of the field that offers authoritative practical guidance for dental practitioners. Oral and Cranial Implants: Recent Research Developments has been written with this in mind. It brings together all the recent key developments in implant research and discusses the underlying science relating to implant procedures and failures. Relevant literature is reviewed and clear practical advice is offered. This book will be ideal for dentists wishing to obtain a snapshot of research in the field and will also be useful for specialists in restorative dentistry. The authors are recognized leading authorities who are well equipped to evaluate the applications and challenges associated with implants.

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.
