New e-books

Bionanomaterials for dental applications / Mieczyslaw Jurczyk (ed). Boca Raton, Fla.: Pan Stanford Pub., 2012.
This book introduces readers to the structure and characteristics of new dental nanomaterials, corrosion behavior of metallic biomaterials and implants, and methods of surface improvement of implants by means of nanoengineering, which determines the biocompatibility of such inserts. It thoroughly explains osseointegration from a biological viewpoint and early tissue response.

Dento/oro/craniofacial anomalies and genetics / Agn├Ęs Bloch-Zupan, Crispian Scully. Amsterdam: Elsevier, 2012.

Dental defects may be the physical expression of genetic defects, and so they can often be seen in a variety of syndromes associated with malformations of organs. However, dental defects are often not recognized, identified, nor characterised despite representing a possible diagnostic sign for an undiagnosed condition. This book addresses this gap by providing an understanding of dental genetics and its developmental biology counterpart.
