Mini-implants : the orthodontics of the future / Skander Ellouze, Francois Darque ; traduit du Francais par George Morgan.

D 617.644 E4

Mini-implants offer a useful orthodontic anchorage solution with relatively simple placement that does not rely on patient cooperation and is reliable. This comprehensive book presents the essentials of orthodontic treatment using mini-implants and outlines selection, placement, biomechanics, diagnosis, and treatment strategies. The authors detail the biomechanics application of mini-screw-supported alveolar anchorage in precise and effective therapeutic protocols to treat every type of malocclusion, including orthodontic movements that were difficult or even impossible to achieve previously. The authors also discuss the management of mini-implants in multidisciplinary treatment. With clearly defined indications, codified protocol, and reproducible therapeutic efficacy and clinical results, this book details a full-fledged treatment system that uses mini-implants to achieve functional and esthetic outcomes.

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.

Ethical decision making in dentistry/ [edited by] Suzanne U. Stucki-McCormick.

D 617.6871 E8

 

Ethical principles are essential in the practice of dentistry, and Ethical Decisions in Dentistry takes the reader from ethics in dental education to creating ethical protocols and public policy. This concise volume covers ethics issues in the education of dentists, in licensure and licensing examinations, in solo and group private practice, and in esthetic dentistry. It also supplies a chapter presenting the patient’s perspective on medical ethics, one on informed consent, and another on the process of developing the guidelines for ethical dental decision-making. The topics of billing, office management, and advertising are covered, and the book closes with a chapter entitled Ethics in Transition, which charts transitions in a dentists practice and career as well as transitions in how ethical principles themselves are viewed. Ethical Decisions in Dentistry is a valuable text for teaching ethics in dental schools, but also serves as a refresher course for practicing dentists at any stage of their professional lives.
