Despite decades of well-established nonsurgical and surgical protocols and techniques, the treatment of deep intraosseous lesions still represents a challenge for clinicians. Therefore, the purpose of this textbook is to present simplified procedures that can be used to treat even the most difficult clinical scenarios. Both surgical and nonsurgical regenerative treatment options are presented and discussed in great detail, including types of instruments and regenerative materials to use, patient and defect evaluation, and step-by-stop protocols for various evidence-based procedures. Detailed clinical photographs and radiographs accompany each discussion to demonstrate the ideal initial situation for each method and the impressive results that can be achieved by following it, and many of the surgical sections also feature video content of procedures on real patients. A significant portion of the book is devoted to the single-flap approach, a technique developed and refined by the authors over many years to simplify surgical treatment while providing the best results for the patient. Both students and experienced professionals will find this atlas a welcome reference when encountering periodontally involved teeth. 524 illustrations, 23 videos. Contents: 1. Introduction 2. Fundamentals in Periodontal Regeneration 3. Nonsurgical Treatment of Intraosseous Defects 4. Simplified Surgical Regenerative Procedures: The Single-Flap Approach

This book was written by the creator of the popular Dental Expert and Pediatric Dental Expert app for the iPhone and iPad, Dr. Marc Lazare, who has gathered information from the top dental experts in their fields to answer the most frequently asked dental questions in all categories of dental care. The Patient’s Guide to Dentistry is the ultimate guide to everything you would like to know, and everything you should know. There are many questions people have about dental care. There are terms that they have heard mentioned but aren’t quite sure what they are. They have heard about advances in dental technology and various treatments but don’t know who to ask about them. Their dentist is often too busy to present all the different choices one has, and doesn’t have the time to explain in detail what needs to be done. People have a fear of the unknown and a fear of dentistry is common. We all are concerned with doing what is best for us and our family while trying to keep costs down. There are many aspects of basic dental care we do not understand. The idea of when to see a dentist and if I go will I have pain are just some of the universal concerns. Here, in one book, are the answers we need.
Ever since the publication of the first edition of this textbook in 1940, The legacy of grossman’s endodontic practice has served as a foundational text on the art and science of endodontics. Successive generations of students and clinicians have not only learnt the basics of endodontics from this book but also have followed it extensively as an authoritative clinical resource. The fourteenth edition of this classic is a comprehensive update that incorporates the changes that have occurred in endodontic theory and practice in terms of materials, concepts and protocols. With its evidence-based approach and clinical coverage, this classic is an indispensable textbook for both students and clinicians. New to this edition two new chapters br>o magnification in endodontics br>o non-surgical endodontic retreatment clinical notes highlighting pertinent important clinical aspects of the topic being discussed 100+ case reports illustrating the conceptual and clinical discussions in detail over 1, 200 illustrations comprising relevant line diagrams, clinical photographs, radiographs and histological slides a visual master Class online link, presenting videos of important clinical procedures.
Although the field of dental surgery has witnessed significant changes over the past decade, perfect wound closure remains a key aspect for uneventful wound healing. The Art of Dental Suturing is a unique overview of the different aspects of wound closure. Written by two experts in the field, this fully illustrated clinical guide on the management of suturing is intended to impart all the information necessary to achieve successful wound closure.
In line with the current dental literature, and carefully constructed in a concise and simple way, the book is divided into three chapters. The first chapter deals with general characteristics of wound healing and provides information to dental clinicians and surgeons on the basic principles involved. The second chapter presents the instruments and materials required for all the categories of wound closure in every clinical situation. The third chapter is a complete guide to the various wound closure methods and techniques required in dental surgery. It is constructed in a step-by-step manner for clear understanding and is accompanied by carefully designed, large-format illustrations and photographs to impart the essential knowledge needed to facilitate perfect suturing.
We hope that this book will serve as a reference guide for all those in the profession who are tasked with the crucial role of successful wound closure.
