Implantology step by step/ Christoph T. Sliwowski ; co-authors, Stefan Hümmeke, Dominika Sliwowska, Christian F.J. Stappert.

D 617.674 S63

In this practical textbook, the author presents innovative treatment strategies for the protocols of implant dentistry that span the discipline, from simple single-tooth restoration to complex full-arch rehabilitation of edentulous arches involving sinus elevation and immediate implant placement. Delineated in the book are treatment protocols for clinical situations with different baseline conditions and levels of difficulty, including a section devoted to treating the fully edentulous patients. New technologies, including 3D diagnosis enabled by CBCT, are analyzed for their effectiveness and efficiency. In addition, important complications are discussed within the context of their causes and management; the author does not shy away from presenting examples of implant therapy with unsatisfactory results, valuing the instructive worth of problematic or controversial cases. This book provides valuable instruction and guidance to student practitioners on the most up-to-date protocols in implant dentistry.

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.
