review

the reviewer has no hesitation in recommending this useful volume for all manner of dental professionals and students – but particularly for those embarking on a dental nursing qualification.
european journal of dental education

product description

basic guide to dental instruments provides a working inventory of dental instrumentation in common use in dental surgeries. a clear photograph of each class and many varieties of instrument is included, and then described according to the following principles: name, usage, any relevant features and varieties. each section is dedicated to a specific discipline or division of dentistry. complete set–ups have been included at the end of most sections for various procedures. the coverage reflects instrumentation and accessory items used in general dental practice, routine hospital dental procedures and selected specialist settings.

the author adopts a flexible approach which recognises that some instruments are multi–functional, and their names and usage can vary across dental surgeries. this approach, coupled with the range of instruments covered, makes the book an ideal ′portable′ resource across general practice, hospital and a range of specialist settings. the book also highlights instruments which can be easily confused. in addition to detailing the classic sets of dental instruments, the importance of instrument care and sterilisation regimes is acknowledged.

dorthe arenholt-bindslev, d.d.s., ph.d., certif. orthod, professor and consultant orthodontist, school of dentistry, rhus university, denmark

book description

this book provides a comprehensive and scientifically based overview of the biocompatibility of dental materials. up-to-date concepts of biocompatibility assessment are presented, as well as information on almost all material groups used in daily dentistry practice. furthermore, special topics of clinical relevance (e.g. environmental and occupational hazards and the diagnosis of adverse effects) are covered. the book will improve the reader’s ability to critically analyze information provided by manufacturers, provide a better understanding of the biocompatibility of single material groups, and thus will help the reader choose the most appropriate materials for any given patient and thus prevent adverse effects from developing, provide insights on how to conduct objective, matter-of-fact discussions with patients about the materials to be used in dental procedures, advise readers, through the use of well-documented concepts, on how to treat patients who claim adverse effects from dental materials, and feature clinical photographs that will serve as a reference when analyzing clinical symptoms, such as oral mucosa reactions.

very informative book, troubling dentistry, beware, november 21, 2011

this book is very informative and with many reference for related research if one wishes to find additional information. i would recommend it to both dentists and non dentists wanting to learn more about biocompatibility of dental materials.

this is an area that was not covered in the past in dental schools or follow-up courses and education. as as consequence most of the practicing dentists are not aware of the actual biocompatibility of dental materials that they are placing into patients mouth. same holds true for dental labs, while dental material manufacturing companies carry most of the burden given they do not enough research and do not provide transparent information on their products to judge their biocompatibility by dentist and/or patient/consumer and even dental lab. some of the companies are better in this regard – such as vita/vident which pay more attention to biocompatibility.

the focus and mantra of modern dentistry was cosmetic and use of use – focus was on less costly, quicker procedures and materials, not on the ones that are most biocompatible. this is highly troubling given toxicity and potential for allergies for many dental materials. just to name a few:

1. amalgam – one of favorites of old dental school (~40-50% mercury – is a highly toxic substance that evaporates from amalgams on a daily basis, infiltrates many parts of the body and impacts brain, kidney’s, liver, endocrine/hormonal system. overall, this is a very troubling material, while it the filling does last a long time its effects are also felt for a long time by the patient.
2. barium – more recent favorite that was/is being added to composite materials, ceramic materials, and cements.
3. radioactive/fluorescing substances – in the past uranium salts were being used in dental ceramics and some other materials. nowadays, excessive use of zirconia which has ~ 5% of radioactive material such as uranium/thorium, and hafnium. also excessive use of other radioactive and/or rare earth materials which are not biocompatible in composites and ceramic materials which can cause local and systemic problems.
4. composite materials. most of them are some combo of acrylic/resin substances which shrink over time, leach out and cause problems for many people.
5. dental dental cements, which are mostly glue like substances made out of acrylics with high toxicity on living cells, irritation and high potential for allergies. the cements are glues are highly irritating acrylic substances that leach out and can cause various allergies and other problems. they also contain most of the times barium, fluoride and other toxins.
6. excessive use of materials such as emax which contain lithium which are toxic in the body, and are also used as psychiatric drugs in clinical institutions for mental patients.

majority of the above mentioned dental materials are frequent often cause for headaches, anxious and irritable behavior, tiredness, depression, sleeplessness, swollen joints, endocrine/hormonal and other illnesses and health problems.

recommend buying and reading this book, but have given it 4 stars for following reasons: not a strong enough stance on amalgams and other toxic materials such as lithium and barium – both of these leach out of dental ceramic and composite materials. i hope that more people become aware of the problems that dentistry has and is still presenting in todays society. one can hope that fda also imposes tougher regulations on the dental industry – it terms of trials, more extensive testing, transparency of track record, ingredients, etc. so that we can proactively many of everyday health problems – improve lives and save billions in the process.

allergies to dental products, share this with your dentist, july 16, 2009

this book is a fascinating read even for non-dentists. the “biocompatibility” means compatibility of dental crowns, fillings, etc with the person they are applied to. if you have suffered unexplained rashes in and around your mouth (including thrush, lichen planus), face and neck it may be that new filling the dentist put in. the dentist may not believe you “no one is allergic to this” but yes! individuals can be allergic, so suggest this great book (with photos) to your dentist. published in 2009, it is an up-to-date, comprehensive reference for any dentist who cares about more than just a patient’s mouth. it details which products have led to reported reactions, gives examples of and defines the different types of allergic reactions and shows pictures of possible symptoms.

dental materials text, february 5, 2009

this book covers the basic material science of most commonly-used dental materials. it is generally easy to read and understand and is as current as any text dedicated to the subject. most of the properties which govern the performance of dental biological materials are presented in a manner which should be understood by dental students and dentists. since manipulation of materials ranges from 50 to 90 per cent of what dentists spend their work time doing, a book like this should be part of their reference library. this book serves that purpose well. the editors are well-known experts in their respective fields and have chosen keen contributions from competent and established investigators to effectively discuss and elucidate all areas covered by this textbook. as a former faculty member, who taught in dental schools and carried out research programs, and now a general dental practitioner who still participates in material science research, i highly recommend this book.

a painful read, but useful., may 5, 2011

this book, while detailed, is riddled with areas of unexplained technical terminology and confusing sentence structure. a lot of terminology (for example from metallurgy) is mentioned but completely unexplained, which forces the reader to go look up terms to understand what the author is talking about.

some frustrating sentence structure is also common, requiring several reads to get one’s head around what is actually being said. for example “sometimes the abraded area is smooth” or “[this occurs] externally, usually in the interior…”

overall it’s a useful book, but the way it is written makes for an extremely tedious read.

good start and perfect for undergraduates, september 11, 2007

i found this book good for gaining a general knowledge on dental materials. there really isn’t anything else around that is better. it is lacking in specific formulations and leaves out a few areas of dentistry – particularly endodontics and endodontic medicaments. cavit, ledermix etc are just not discussed. light cured special tray resins are not covered in much detail although i would have to say that in general this book is good.
if you are an undergraduate then this book is definitely worth buying. if you are a dentist who believes the brochures put out by dental manufacturers then i think this book is a must so that a general understanding of assessing dental materials is gained. overall i would have to give this book four stars.

mediocre at best, august 9, 2007 attractive layout, nice diagrams, broad coverage of areas. very poor information. lack of basic info. for example, according to the book, the ideal prep for a pfm is 360 shoulder with bevel. i don’t think anyone would seriously use this. discussion of luting and cements for all ceramics is cursory. in conclusion: there are much better sources out there for the money. steer clear.

review

i personally like the approach of clinical-case based textbooks and find them much easier to learn from as the information is presented in a realistic situation.

this book is very easy-to-read, its small brief sections of introduction, medical history, and investigations makes for easy, logical reading. the way the text asks and then answers a question is for me an excellent way to learn as it simulates what clinical staff may ask the student in this situation.

the mind maps, i think, are also a particularly good feature of the book and unique in my experience. most people choose to make things like this when they revise anyway so its handy to have the information required all linked together already.

this book is suitable for undergraduate students as it is useful book for general revision (patients invariably will fall into one of the categories covered), viva exams and unseen ‘finals cases’ – many students find this type of book (and especially clinical problem solving by odell) particularly useful as the theories and methods can be applied to a real life case. the book may also be relevant inexperienced clinicians as a reference text.

this is a book i would have never bothered looking at in a bookstore, proving the rule that you should never judge a book by its cover; however, after reading it for this review i can say that is has made orthodontics infinitely more appealing. orthodontics is a subject so baffling that i wouldn’t learn it unless i had to, but here the cases are worked through methodically and logically. i will certainly be recommending this text to other students.

product description

this is the seventh edition of a highly successful book on oral pathology and oral medicine for dental studentsand postgraduates taking further dental exams such as the fds. radical changes were introduced when the sixth edition was published in 1998, the most important of which were the restriction of the content to oral pathology and oral medicine from its former broader coverage, and the introduction of colour illustrations. a major change to the seventh edition will be that colour illustrations will be spread throughout the book.

customer reviews

fantastic!

  • utterly indispensible.
  • a summary of all aspects of oral med and path, both hard tissue and soft tissue. its catagorized by type of pathology, and subdivided from that into specific lesions. there’s a lot of information on the commoner conditions, although the rarer ones are worth only one sparse paragraph.
  • well illustrated with lots of good pictures of pathologies. the section on cysts (which are, after all, the things most likely to come up in exams) is particularly good.
  • very useful are the summary tables which list all possible causes of red patches/white patches/radiolucencies/whatever and their distinguishing features. they’re easy to understand, memorize and regurgitate in exams.
  • this passed me finals.
great book
  • a good overall book which covers everything you need to know in these areas with lots of useful pictures.

introducing dental implant

by

john a. hobkirk, consultant in restorative dentistry and head of department of prosthetic dentistry, eastman dental institute, london, uk; roger m. watson, emeritus professor of restorative dentistry, guy’s, king’s and st. thomas’s dental institute, kings college, london, uk; and lloyd searson, eastman dental institute, london, uk

roger m. watson and lloyd j. j. searson

this book is intended principally for undergraduate dental students in their final year and dentists taking postgraduate courses. it should also be of interest to professionals complementary to dentistry, seeking an introduction to the subject. the text is not intended to develop skills to the specialist level, but rather to help in preparing for examinations or clinical situations in which basic knowledge of the topic is required.
the text has been arranged in an ordered sequence from an introduction to the subject, through to completion of treatment using implant-stabilized prostheses and the all-important management of problems. since there are a number of clinical situations where it may be advantageous to use dental implants, several of the chapters describe procedures that could be used in different circumstances.

the text is not primarily intended to be read from cover to cover, but rather as a series of discrete chapters, although many build on knowledge acquired in earlier sections. readers may therefore find it helpful to select particular chapters when seeking information on one aspect of implant therapy. consequently, many chapters contain brief resumes of information covered earlier in the book to avoid needless cross-referencing.
the information has been arranged in three ways. firstly, there is the body text, which covers each topic in the intended detail; secondly there are supplemen-tary photographs and diagrams; and finally there are a number of summary lists which are intended to be used by the reader as an aid when preparing for an examination or wishing to use the material in a clinical setting.

review

“this is a book with a strong pedigree and is based on the previously successful book also written by the authors “a colour atlas and text of dental and maxillo-facial implantology”.
the information in this book cannot be faulted and the pictures are of very good quality.” d walmsley, british dental journal, january 2004
textbook is ideal for undergraduate dental students, and any member of the dental team who wants a deeper insight into some of the implant treatment possibilities.” dr waseem noordin, dental practice, september 2003
the book is incredibly well organised, breaking down information into a series of headings and bullet points. this information is also summarised in table form. the text is comprehensive, supported by a wealth of clinical images and schematic illustrations covering all aspects of implant dentistry. the authors have aimed this book at final year dental students, dentists taking postgraduate courses and professionals complementary to dentistry. in laying the book out in discrete chapters in an easy to read style, i think that it will find an enthusiastic audience.” instructor, university of birmingham school of dentistry, dental update, april 2004

applications of orthodontic mini implants

by

jong suk, ph.d. lee,

jung kook, ph.d. kim,

young-chel park,

robert l. vanarsdall

prevention of undesirable tooth movement in both arches is now possible through the use of orthodontic mini-implants. this relatively new treatment concept has expanded the envelope of orthodontic treatment, offering an alternative to orthognathic surgery (particularly in the vertical dimension) and allowing asymmetric tooth movement in three planes of space. this textbook describes precise conditions and techniques for clinical application of orthodontic mini-implants. the first half presents biologic principles, design, and function of mini-implants, and the second half addresses surgical procedures for placement and the mechanotherapy specific to various types of predictable tooth movement. recommended for all orthodontists, periodontists, oral surgeons, and students who have been seeking better treatment results. contents

  • evolution of the orthodontic mini implant
  • fundamentals of skeletal anchorage
  • design and function of new, screw-type orthodontic mini implants
  • treatment planning
  • surgical procedures
  • mechanics and limitations
  • treatment based on a new paradigm
  • anterior-posterior control
  • vertical control
  • transverse control
  • preprosthodontic orthodontic treatment and minor tooth movement

reviews

“this book is mandatory reading for all periodontists, surgeons and orthodontists who use or want to use the new technology called orthodontic miniscrew implants, also known as temporary anchorage devices or tads. this technology is full of promise, but has often delivered disappointment. many remedies are given in this book, which contains a complete knowledgebase up to 2007 on orthodontic mini-implants.”

“…this book is an exquisitely designed and illustrated assistant to the use of the new orthodontic mini-implant technology. it is a timely arrival because the technology is new and poorly understood by many in the profession. the technology promises good things, but unfortunately it has instead delivered much frustration to its users. thankfully, remedies to many of the problems are given in this book. the book has two basic themes. the first is the biological, mechanical theory and material design concepts, which are based on considerable scientific and engineering knowledge. the second theme is the practical and clinical application of this knowledge. there are many high quality, detailed and annotated sketches and clinical photographs. it is also the best book on mechanotherapy i have read…”

operative oral and maxillofacial surgery

by

john langdon,

mohan patel,

robert ord,

peter brennan.

operative maxillofacial surgery was first published in 1998, and within a very short period it became the standard text for trainees in oral and maxillofacial surgery preparing for their exit examinations. for this second edition, the contents have been extensively revised not only to include all aspects of oral surgery, but also to reflect the changes in maxillofacial practice that have occurred since 1998. in particular, the role of osseointegrated implants, the management of craniofacial trauma, and facial aesthetic surgery including “cosmetic” surgery and bone distraction have all moved on since the first edition was written. the editors have made a careful selection of contributors representing current practice from throughout the world including continental europe, the united states, asia, and australia.

operative oral and maxillofacial surgery represents international best practice in the specialty. each chapter has been written by an internationally recognized expert and represents a “how i do it” master class. it is illustrated with clear line diagrams supplemented where appropriate with clinical photographs showing the essential steps in all the surgical procedures in current clinical practice. authors have kept to a standard template, ensuring a minimum of discussion and an emphasis on surgical technique.
operative oral and maxillofacial surgery will appeal to to trainees, young specialists, and established experts, not only in oral and maxillofacial surgery, but also in the related subspecialties of otorhinolaryngology and plastic surgery.

if you dont this book (surprise) you miss nothing at all !!!
im a third year resident , expected this book to have at the least descent coverage of the core topics in the feild . trauma, orthognathic ,pathology and implant but it doesnt . it fails achieving its title as operative book. its kind mixed text plus less than adequate coverage of technique ,not mentioning the poor operative comments .
major interesting procedure like bsso or mandible orif barely there in the book .
it has a big portion on free flaps , which is covered way better in plastic literature available already.
beside that it has the worst writing and presentation style among the respectable books like peterson’s , fonseca or peter booth.
one more thing is the high price for such a book . just compare it to fonseca with its great 3 volume and more than triple excellent and updated content . close in price , but definitely not in originality .
i advise the publisher to offer a refund to whomever own this lousy book ,starting with me!!!!
