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.

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.
