Periodontal regeneration / B. Stadlinger, H. Terheyden ; production, iAS interActive Systems GmbH.

D 617.664 S777 p

DVDs + program notes 

Unlike bone, which is constantly undergoing resorption followed by bone apposition, teeth are not subject to remodeling. They are remarkably resistant to physiologic remodeling processes. The reason for this is found in the periodontium and cementum. The mechanisms that take effect in this area and the effectiveness of the periodontal system — consisting of gingiva, alveolar bone, periodontium, and cementum — after injury can be visualized in this scientific 3D film. The visualization of these complex processes is of great interest for academic teaching as well as for the clinician, as the cellular interactions are presented in this context of four phases. For the first time, scanning electron microscope images of real cells can be visualized alongside computer-animated simulations, allowing the comparison of their characteristics.

Fractured instrument removal : a systematic approach : multimedia compendium / Michael Arnold.

D 617.6262 A75  (Includes 1 DVD)

Instrument breakage is a possible complication of mechanical preparation and widening of complex root canal systems. The more difficult the endodontic treatment, the greater the risk of instrument fracture. Recent studies show that more than 90% of all broken endodontic instruments can be successfully removed without surgical intervention. However, before undertaking a removal attempt, clinicians must know how to determine when a broken instrument should be removed and when it should be left in place; the appropriate methods for broken instrument removal; and which instruments should be used for each level of difficulty. This DVD provides a simple, step-by-step strategy to instrument removal that is illustrated by numerous images and clinical case demonstrations. This systematic approach can help significantly improve the odds of successfully removing broken endodontic instruments from the root canal. The accompanying booklet includes insightful articles on minimally invasive fragment removal using CBCT as well as systematic approach to orthograde removal of fractured instruments.

A concept of “en bloc” movement of teeth using GUMMETAL wire /Shin Hasegawa.

D 617.644 H34

 

This book outlines a system of orthodontic therapy based on the use of Gummetal arch wire that can improve patient comfort and shorten treatment time. Although many alloys have been used for orthodontic wire, none offer the benefits of Gummetal, which combines a super-low Young modulus with extreme strength. The use of Gummetal in en bloc protocols allows clinicians to construct simple orthodontic appliances that not only distribute a gentle, near-optimum force but can also achieve an ideal occlusion in less time than traditional treatment. The author details the characteristics and application of Gummetal and the en bloc treatment strategies that maximize three-dimensional tooth movement in orthodontic therapy. This groundbreaking book provides clear direction in the use of Gummetal arch wire and presents new treatment protocols that are sure to revolutionize orthodontic therapy.
