Complete dentures: from planning to problem solving / by P. Finbarr Allen, Seán McCarthy.

D 617.632 A42

The proportion of elderly adults is rapidly increasing as life expectancy increases. Many of these adults will not retain sufficient numbers of teeth for the remainder of their lives, and will require complete dentures at some point.

This book (2nd edition) deals with the planning, construction and review of complete dentures and examines the role of osseointegrated prostheses in the management of edentulism.

What’s in your mouth?: your guide to a lifelong smile / Douglas A. Terry.

D 617.65 T32

Dental clinicians have a responsibility to teach patients the importance of oral health care, and this book shows adult patients what can happen if they neglect their teeth. It presents full-page images to show what plaque, decay, and gingivitis look like and how they can contribute to periodontal disease and tooth loss. It also instructs the reader on the proper brushing and ossing techniques to prevent such negative outcomes. With the combination of exquisite clinical images and descriptive yet succinct text, What’s in Your Mouth?: Your Guide to a Lifelong Smile is an excellent chairside tool for patient education on oral hygiene.
