Recent arrivals

Orthodontic and surgical management of impacted teeth /Vincent G. Kokich (et al). Chicago, IL: Quintessence Publishing Co., Inc., 2014.

Impacted teeth are a commonplace encounter in dental practice, yet currently there is not a comprehensive book detailing the surgical treatments and orthodontic therapy to erupt or manage these teeth. This text covers the various types of impactions an orthodontist and surgeon will encounter, including maxillary central incisors, maxillary canines (both labially and palatally impacted), mandibular canines, premolars, and mandibular molars. Each chapter focuses on a specific impacted tooth and how it can be surgically uncovered and orthodontically moved. The book also presents a chapter on failed cases, explaining what went wrong and how to prevent such negative outcomes when treating similar cases.

Surgical and radiologic anatomy for oral implantology /Louie Al-Faraje. Hanover Park, IL: Quintessence Publishing Co Inc, 2013.

Anatomical textbooks and atlases often fail to meet the clinical demands of defining intraoperative structures for oral implantologists because of the overwhelmingly detailed minutia. Because certain anatomical landmarks are hard to illustrate in a diagram format, students and professionals can be confused when confronted with actual specimens in the dissecting room or in the operatory. This book, however, shows the structures of the maxilla, the mandible, and the nasal cavity as they actually exist in the dissected or live body, through the presentation of cadaver specimens and clinical cases.

ITI treatment guide. Vol 7. Ridge augmentation procedures in implant patients: A staged approach. /D. Buser (ed). Berlin: Quintessence, 2014.

Volume 7 provides clinicians with the latest evidence-based information on the techniques and materials used for ridge augmentation, specifically in preparation for delayed implant placement. The authors review the limitations and contraindications, explain the recommended surgical approaches, and review the management of complications. Twelve clinical cases demonstrate the planning and treatment principles required to successfully rehabilitate patients with varying degrees of ridge atrophy.
