Hazards of the Job

From Industrial Disease to Environmental Health Science

Hazards of the Job explores the roots of modern environmentalism in the early-twentieth-century United States. It was in the workplace of this era, argues Christopher Sellers, that our contemporary understanding of environmental health dangers first took shape. At the crossroads where medicine and science met business, labor, and the state, industrial hygiene became a crucible for molding midcentury notions of corporate interest and professional disinterest as well as environmental concepts of the 'normal' and the 'natural.' The evolution of industrial hygiene illuminates how powerfully battles over knowledge and objectivity could reverberate in American society: new ways of establishing cause and effect begat new predicaments in medicine, law, economics, politics, and ethics, even as they enhanced the potential for environmental control. From the 1910s through the 1930s, as Sellers shows, industrial hygiene investigators fashioned a professional culture that gained the confidence of corporations, unions, and a broader public. As the hygienists moved beyond the workplace, this microenvironment prefigured their understanding of the environment at large. Transforming themselves into linchpins of science-based production and modern consumerism, they also laid the groundwork for many controversies to come.

The Hidden Dangers in Dental Care

Dr. Huggins and Dr. Levy assert that a large number of disorders are, though often incurable, easily preventable. He proposes that multiple sclerosis, lupus, leukemia, chronic fatigue syndrome, Parkinson's disease, many mental disorders including Alzheimer's, and even major diseases like breast cancer are caused, in part, by the toxins we place in our bodies. Where do these toxins come from and how do they get into our bodies? You my be surprised to find that you have actually paid to have them put there. These dangerous materials--mercury, cadmium, beryllium, nickel, and others--are used in everyday dentistry to make up the fillings, root canals, and bridgework in our mouths, and are supposed to be "safe." But are they? Uninformed Consent presents cases of toxic poisoning--of depressed immune systems and inexplicable illnesses--to toxins entering the bloodstream from the heavy metals in dental materials. The authors also discuss the hidden truths that the dental industry in America doesn't want to talk about, and the real reasons the dangers of these materials have been suppressed and ignored. Dr.'s Huggins and Levy implore the reader: "Don't leave your health in your dentist's hands and assume that all will be fine. Become informed and take an active role in your health. Know what will be implanted in your mouth. You must decide at the outset what is more important to you--the life of a filling or your life." Uninformed Consent will give you the facts so that you may take responsibility for your dental--and complete--health and wellness.

Prepared by editors and contributors of international renown, this volume places unique emphasis on the biological basis of effective treatment planning by describing the diagnosis, aetiology, risk assessment and preventive management of diseases and disorders and how these factors are integral to predictable long-term patient outcomes. Advanced Operative Dentistry: A Practical Approach also gives clear advice on the selection and use of modern dental materials and describes how teeth are prepared – and to what extent – for indirect restorations such as crowns, bridges, veneers, inlays and onlays. The book also explores the use of complex indirect fixed prosthodontics which brings with it specific issues of restoration design, retention and occlusal management. Recognising that great deal of emphasis is placed on aesthetic dentistry by patient and dentist alike, this text also discusses factors which can impact upon aesthetics and how the aesthetic demands of patients can be met in a realistic and ethical manner. Clearly written and fully illustrated throughout, this practical step-by-step guide will be ideal for undergraduate dental students, vocational trainees and practitioners undertaking post-graduate exams. Prepared by editors and contributors of international renown Contains an abundance of full colour, clinical illustrations to show the results that can be achieved in real life Describes how to achieve the best appearance in order to meet increasing patient expectations Discusses the use of fixed prosthodontics in one volume and how fixed and removable prosthodontics can be integrated Gives unique emphasis on the preventative, biological approach to the use of fixed prosthodontics in order to ensure positive long-term treatment outcomes Clearly illustrates why aspects of tooth preparation are necessary and how the construction of restorations influences their fit Provides an integrated, multidisciplinary step-by-step guide to the provision of indirect fixed restorations Provides guidance on effective communication with laboratory staff to ensure high-quality tooth preparation Describes the correct handling of materials and restorations when being fitted Presents the latest findings regarding the use of contemporary materials and techniques – such as the use of Expasyl, Protemp temporary crowns, CAD and CAM crowns Comprehensive coverage of the subject area makes cross-referencing to other books unnecessary

A fundamental knowledge and understanding of dental materials is an absolute requisite to performing optimal dental care. This tenet is true not only for general dentists, but also for specialists alike. It is true not only for the developing dental student, but also for the practicing dentist. It is clearly evident that the authors of Dental Biomaterials have both an in-depth knowledge of dental materials and a fundamental appreciation for the importance of this information in contemporary clinical dentistry. Owing to the broad range of expertise of the authors, this textbook distinguishes itself from most dental materials texts by its remarkable ability to address a myriad of dental materials in the context of actual clinical applications. Emphasizing the clinical significance of dental materials is an obvious and conspicuous goal of this text that pervades the entire content of its pages. In fact, to that end, the authors notably include numerous highlighted sections entitled "Dental Significance" throughout the chapters to underscore the clinical importance of the subject matter. This approach is exceptionally effective at fostering a basic understanding of dental materials for the dental student. It piques the interest without stifling the student with abstract concepts. This text also is a valuable and reliable resource for the practicing dentist.
