A gritty, romantic modern fairy tale from the author of Break and Gone, Gone, Gone. Be careful what you believe in. Rudy’s life is flipped upside-down when his family moves to a remote island in a last attempt to save his sick younger brother. With nothing to do but worry, Rudy sinks deeper and deeper into loneliness and lies awake at night listening to the screams of the ocean beneath his family’s rickety house. Then he meets Diana, who makes him wonder what he even knows about love, and Teeth, who makes him question what he knows about anything. Rudy can’t remember the last time he felt so connected to someone, but being friends with Teeth is more than a little bit complicated. He soon learns that Teeth has terrible secrets. Violent secrets. Secrets that will force Rudy to choose between his own happiness and his brother’s life.

The editors and the publisher are pleased to present another volume in this series of monographs. The topic of teeth was last reviewed within the framework of this Handbook more than fifty years ago, in 1936, by Josef Lehner and HanDs Plenk of Vienna, who wrote a comprehensive treatise on the subject in volume V 3. / The introduction of new methods (e.g., transmission and scan ning electron microscopy, histochemistry, radioautography, element analysis) and progress in dental research have made an update necessary. In present times, characterized by scientific specialization and very rapid progress, it is virtually impossible to find a single individual prepared to review a field of research as large as that of teeth. Consequently. several authors were asked to contribute to the present volume. Originally. the intention was to cover the field in one volume. When it became clear that the material had become too extensive for a single volume, and when some authors were forced by external factors to withdraw from the project, it was decided to publish two volumes. In 1986, the volume Periodontium, written by Hubert E. Schroeder of Zurich. appeared in this series (volume VIS, 418 pages).

The Story of Beauty, Inequality, and the Struggle for Oral Health in America

An NPR Best Book of 2017 "[Teeth is] . . . more than an exploration of a two-tiered system—it is a call for sweeping, radical change." —New York Times Book Review “Show me your teeth,” the great naturalist Georges Cuvier is credited with saying, “and I will tell you who you are.” In this shattering new work, veteran health journalist Mary Otto looks inside America’s mouth, revealing unsettling truths about our unequal society. Teeth takes readers on a disturbing journey into America’s silent epidemic of oral disease, exposing the hidden connections between tooth decay and stunted job prospects, low educational achievement, social mobility, and the troubling state of our public health. Otto’s subjects include the pioneering dentist who made Shirley Temple and Judy Garland’s teeth sparkle on the silver screen and helped create the all-American image of “pearly whites”; Deamonte Driver, the young Maryland boy whose tragic death from an abscessed tooth sparked congressional hearings; and a marketing guru who offers advice to dentists on how to push new and expensive treatments and how to keep Medicaid patients at bay. In one of its most disturbing findings, Teeth reveals that toothaches are not an occasional inconvenience, but rather a chronic reality for millions of people, including disproportionate numbers of the elderly and people of color. Many people, Otto reveals, resort to prayer to counteract the uniquely devastating effects of dental pain. Otto also goes back in time to understand the roots of our predicament in the history of dentistry, showing how it became separated from mainstream medicine, despite a century of growing evidence that oral health and general bodily health are closely related. Muckraking and paradigm-shifting, Teeth exposes for the first time the extent and meaning of our oral health crisis. It joins the small shelf of books that change the way we view society and ourselves—and will spark an urgent conversation about why our teeth matter.

Der Ursprung von Jurassic Park Wyoming, 1875: So wie die Erde unter den donnernden Büffelherden des noch wilden Westens bebt, wird die Welt von der Entdeckung einer noch größeren, viel älteren Naturgewalt erschüttert. Fossile Funde belegen: Einst müssen riesige Urzeitwesen die Erde bevölkert haben - die Dinosaurier. Damit rückt ein wenig beachteter, aber revolutionärer Wissenschaftszweig, die Paläontologie, ins Licht der Öffentlichkeit. Der Roman Dragon Teeth aus dem Nachlass von Michael Crichton, entstanden 1974, darf als einer der ersten Wissenschaftsthriller dieses Ausnahmeautors und Schöpfers von Jurassic Park gelten. Wie alles begann? Mit der legendären lebenslangen Rivalität zweier Wissenschaftler, Charles Marsh und Edward Drinker Cope, die in den 1890er-Jahren danach trachteten, den alleinigen Ruhm für die bedeutsamen Entdeckungen von Dinosaurierfossilien einzuheimsen. Nach dieser wahren Geschichte ersann Crichton einen rasanten Thriller um Gier, Obsession und den Anfang einer neuen Zeit.

Gustavo Sánchez hat eine Mission: Jeder seiner hässlichen Zähne muss ersetzt werden. Glücklicherweise ist er Auktionator – der weltbeste Auktionator –, was ihm dabei hilft, Geld für die neuen Zähne zu sammeln. Dabei entdeckt er, dass es entscheidend ist, die Objekte, die er anbietet, mit Geschichten auszustatten. Das steigert ihren Wert immens. Auch wenn er noch ein paar andere Fähigkeiten besitzt, die ihm Geld verschaffen: Nach zwei Gläsern Rum kann er Janis Joplin imitieren, Glückskekse deuten und wie Christopher Kolumbus ein Hühnerei auf den Tisch stellen und beim Schwimmen den Toten Mann machen. Das Geschichtenerzählen aber entwickelt er zur Meisterschaft. Und die Sammlung seiner Zähne berühmter Menschen kann sich sehen lassen: von Plato zu Plutarch, Michel de Montaigne, Virginia Woolf und Enrique Vila-Matas. Sanchez aber will die von Marilyn Monroe ... Valeria Luiselli hat mit der Geschichte meiner Zähne ein Buch über den kreativen Prozess, den Wert von Kunst, den Kult um literarische Berühmtheiten geschrieben, eine herrliche Mixtur aus Erinnerung, Erfindung und autobiografischer Reflexion, in deren Zentrum ein Mann mit einem »Mund voller Horror« steht. Eine exzentrische, ganz und gar außergewöhnliche Geschichte, die die Konvention der literarischen Genres sprengt.
