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.

1000 multiple response questions in paediatric dentistry / Morenike Folayan … [et al.].

D 617.629 O58

It can be used for quick revision of various topics namely caries epidemiology, prevention and management; pulp therapy; tooth restoration; dental materials; oral medicine; traumatic dental injury; pain and behaviour management; tooth anatomy and physiology; eruption and eruption disorders; and general dentistry for children. There are three basic kinds of fixed-response questions in the book: True/False Questions, Multiple Choice Questions and Multiple Response Questions. The introduction section of the book provides readers with 10 quick guides on how to make yourself familiar with the vast material in the book. At the end of the book are the answers to the questions as well as a blank answer sheet which you could use during your personal studies. The book shall be revised every three years to ensure it addresses contemporary issues in paediatric dentistry as well as ensure it contains information on current concepts in paediatric dentistry.

Comprehensive esthetic dentistry / Florin Lazarescu, editor.

D 617.627 C737

Nothing can replace the sense of professional fulfillment and personal reward that comes from successfully restoring a patient’s smile. This book, which serves as a complete primer on esthetic dentistry, is aimed at that precise reward. Informed by the latest scientific research and clinical evidence, the authors provide readers with keen insight into the artistic aspects essential to achieving a truly esthetic outcome. Preliminary chapters cover esthetic analysis, effective treatment planning, use of digital dental photography, and the importance of interdisciplinary collaboration. Further chapters outline effective treatment protocols, including the principles of ultraconservative restoration, tooth whitening, anterior and posterior all-ceramic restorations, in-office CAD/CAM technology, implant placement and soft tissue management in the esthetic zone, and the usage of minimally invasive procedures. This book, in its extensive knowledge and passionate voice, represents the union of function and beauty in dentistry, and in doing so, established itself as a comprehensive resource in the field of dental esthetics.

China’s New Maritime Silk Road: Implications and Opportunities for Southeast Asia

Zhao Hong

In 2013, Chinese President Xi Jinping unveiled plans for two massive trade and infrastructure networks connecting East Asia with Europe: the New Silk Road and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road (“one belt one road”). The idea of the New Silk Road and the New Maritime Silk Road signals a shift in China’s strategic thinking and foreign policy towards prioritizing the relationship with neighbouring countries. Hence, it has many implications for Southeast Asian countries.

 

Explaining China’s 2+7 Initiative Towards ASEAN

David Arase

China’s 2+7 Initiative towards ASEAN aims to create an economic, security and political partnership that will be deeper than ASEAN’s partnerships with other external powers. This partnership would be inherently unequal and China’s effort to secure this relationship should be seen in the context of China’s agenda to achieve great power status. China seeks Southeast Asian followers within a larger China-centred Eurasian community.

 

Islamization Policy and Islamic Bureaucracy in Malaysia

Mohd Azizuddin Mohd Sani

The implementation of Islamization policy in Malaysia, since independence in 1957 and aggressively pursued since the 1980s, has promoted the institutionalization of Sunni Islam. It has led to the expansion of the Islamic bureaucracy including the judiciary and security sectors. The Islamization policy has led to the general Islamization of education.

 

Coalitions in Collision: Malaysia’s 13th General Elections

Johan Saravanamuttu, Lee Hock Guan and Mohamed Nawab Mohamed Osman, editors

After the watershed 2008 election when the ruling Barisan Nasional (BN) coalition lost its customary two-thirds control of parliamentary seats, there was the not unreasonable expectation that BN would slip even further in the much-anticipated Thirteenth General Election of 2013, which is the subject of this book. In the event, the BN lost the popular vote to the Pakatan Rakyat (PR) but still retained the reins of government.

Date: August 17, 2015 (Monday)

Title: Studies on bone-derived biological apatite: structural and compositional investigations, assessments and simulations

Abstract: Biological apatite (BAp) is the primary inorganic component of biological calcified tissues such as bones and teeth. Due to the similarity in structure and chemical composition, xenogenic bone graft materials composed of BAp have been widely used in orthopaedics, oral and maxillofacial surgery, and implant dentistry. However, a comprehensive understanding of BAp’s physicochemical properties (such as morphology, composition and solubility) has not yet been obtained because of the variety of its sources and the effects of extraction methods, as well as the drawbacks and limitations of examination methods. Therefore, the aim of this work was to investigate the structure and chemical composition of vertebrate bone-derived BAp, to assess the influence of thermal treatment on its physicochemical properties, and also to examine the effect of heating temperature and magnesium on its solubility by using synthetic hydroxyapatite (HAp) and carbonated HAp (CHAp) as simulation models.

Bone-derived BAp from several vertebrates was extracted by both low-power plasma ashing and thermal treatment. It was found that each consisted of platelet-like CHAp crystals with low crystallinity, which became rod-like or irregular particles, of larger size and higher crystallinity but lower carbonate (CO32−) content, on high-temperature treatment.

The solubility of HAp (as a model for BAp) in potassium chloride-deuterium oxide (KCl-D2O), a potential medium for the investigation of HAp’s solubility behaviour, was close to that in potassium chloride-protium oxide (KCl-H2O), indicating that there was no significant effect of D2O on the equilibration of HAp with its solution. In contrast, the effect of magnesium on HAp’s solubility was concentration-dependent; while with CHAp, another simulation of BAp, the effect of heating temperature was found to be temperature-dependent with respect to its physicochemical properties.

It is concluded that platelet-like BAp is the common inorganic component of vertebrate bones. BAp’s in vivo structure and composition as well as solubility are vulnerable to alteration during extraction involving thermal treatment. Magnesium has evident influence on BAp’s solubility although the mechanism is as yet unknown. D2O, which appears not to affect the solubility behaviour of HAp, may provide a means of preparing deuterated material suitable for detailed crystallographic analysis.
