New books received this week

Treatment planning for traumatized teeth / Mitsuhiro Tsukiboshi. 2nd ed., Hanover Park, IL: Quintessence Pub. Co., 2012.

This new edition emphasizes a minimally invasive approach to treating dental traumas in which procedures are aimed at assisting the natural healing process of the dental hard tissues, pulp, periodontal ligament, and alveolar bone; where possible, invasive restoration, pulpectomy, and extraction are avoided.

Advanced immediate loading / Georgios E. Romanos. Hanover Park, IL: Quintessence Pub. Co., 2012.

This expert guide presents the research and stateof-the-art protocols for advanced immediate loading of dental implants. Based on more than 15 years of clinical experience, the author demonstrates the skills and expert techniques necessary to achieve long-term success with immediate loading protocols, even when used with challenging clinical situations.

Zygomatic implants: the anatomy-guided approach. / Carlos Aparicio (ed). London: Quintessence, 2012.

Zygomatic implants have been in use for more than two decades, and clinical follow-up studies have shown good outcomes. However, this treatment approach is only now seeing a strong resurgence of interest because it can provide patients with a fixed dentition in a short amount of time without any grafts, general anesthesia, or morbidity from a donor site, even in challenging clinical situations.
