During the years spent as a dental student and while practising as a dentist, it is important to be able to assess causes of disease and to determine effective methods of detection, prevention and treatment. Throughout their careers, dentists need to keep abreast of new developments and techniques. There is, however, an abundance of published research and it can be difficult for the student or practising dentist to be able to identify and, more importantly, interpret articles that would be useful. This book aims to provide an introduction to understanding and interpreting research articles. This book introduces the basic epidemiological and statistical aspects of research. Because the aim is for dentists to be able to read scientific articles, all the topics and concepts covered are based entirely on published papers from journals in dentistry, and the understanding of numerical concepts is achieved through building on particular examples.

This book covers all aspects of implant dentistry, presenting up-to-date information that reflects the highest level of scientific evidence as presented in the specialized literature. Among the topics addressed by expert authors are the prognosis of natural tooth versus implant restorations, bone response to implant treatment, placement and loading time, implant design and length, platform design, implant abutments, prosthodontic treatment, reconstructive surgery, and periimplantitis. The amount of data available for the clinician working in the field of implantology is huge and constantly increasing. The task of remaining abreast of the latest evidence and applying it effectively in clinical practice is further hindered by the fact that many scientific papers make contradictory claims and contain methodological flaws and biases that generate confusion and lack of reliability. Against this background, Evidence-Based Implant Dentistry will serve the reader as a dependable and scientifically supported guide to current implant treatment and key issues in the field.

This clinically oriented book covers all aspects of the evidence-based decision making process in multidisciplinary management of the natural dentition. The book opens by clarifying the principles of evidence-based decision making and explaining how these principles should be applied in daily practice. Individual chapters then focus specifically, and in detail, on endodontic, periodontal, and prosthetic considerations, identifying aspects that need to be integrated into decision making and treatment planning. Evidence-based decision making with regard to preservation of the natural tooth versus extraction and implant placement is then discussed, and a concluding chapter examines likely future trends in dentistry and how they may affect clinical decision making. The authors include leading endodontists, periodontists, and prosthodontists. Given the multidisciplinary and comprehensive nature of the book, it will be relevant and interesting to the entire dental community.

This book reviews the evidence relating to the mechanisms, clinical efficacy, safety/toxicity, and clinical application of tooth whitening techniques and materials. All clinical techniques are profusely illustrated step by step. The book is divided into four parts, the first of which explains how tooth whitening with peroxides works and examines the overall safety of peroxides and potential complications. The findings of clinical trials with peroxide-based materials for clinical practice are then examined, with discussion of a wide range of issues in at-home whitening and in-office whitening. The third part focuses on the techniques of enamel microabrasion and resin infiltration, which entail removal of a microscopic layer of enamel and may be used to improve tooth color either alone or in combination with peroxides. The concluding part includes a variety of informative clinical cases using combined bleaching and restorative techniques for discolored teeth. Tooth Whitening — An Evidence-Based Perspective will be of interest for dentists, dental hygienists, dental assistants, and others with an interest in the subject
