The demands for minimally invasive surgical procedures have led to widespread use of digital volume tomography (cone-beam volumetric imaging, CBVI) in dental medicine. Relevant indications have been selected from all areas of dental medicine and case examples have been provided to illustrate the use of CBVI and its benefits for the patient and the care provider. The possibilities for dynamic assessment of the data set are illustrated with videos, which are available from the software menu on the DVD. This book can be used routinely in CBVI assessment and will also act as an effective reference work on which base preparation for the specific certfication examination for professional competence.

This book is designed to serve as an up-to-date reference on the use of cone-beam computed tomography for the purpose of 3D imaging of the craniofacial complex. The focus is in particular on the ways in which craniofacial 3D imaging changes how we think about conventional diagnosis and treatment planning and on its clinical applications within orthodontics and oral and maxillofacial surgery. Emphasis is placed on the value of 3D imaging in visualizing the limits of the alveolar bone, the airways, and the temporomandibular joints and the consequences for treatment planning and execution. The book will equip readers with the knowledge required in order to apply and interpret 3D imaging to the benefit of patients. All of the authors have been carefully selected on the basis of their expertise in the field. In describing current thinking on the merits of 3D craniofacial imaging, they draw both on the available scientific literature and on their own translational research findings.

Endodontic Radiology, 2nd edition, is a unique reference that examines all aspects of radiographic imaging related to endodontics. Dr. Bettina Basrani and a team of prestigious international contributors build upon traditional radiographic techniques and include the latest information available on digital radiographs and cone beam computed tomography. More than an overview of equipment, the book delves into radiographic interpretation, differential diagnosis, technical difficulties and special circumstances when taking radiographs during the endodontic treatment, and how to choose the correct radiographic technique to obtain the desired images. Chapters explain general radiographic techniques; intraoral techniques; standard radiographs and interpretation; digital radiographs and their manipulation, storage, and interpretation; and CBCT principles, techniques, and clinical considerations.

The book highlights the application of distraction osteogenesis in repositioning of teeth. The paradigm in orthognathic surgery has shifted in a way that it is now possible to perform distraction osteogenesis in an outpatient basis. The principles and procedures involved in this cutting edge technique are outlined in the book. Rapid orthodontics, sophisticated imaging, tissue engineering, principles of bone healing and tissue repair and more are discussed by leaders in the field. Through distraction osteogenesis (slow movement), and orthognathic surgery (immediate movement), virtually every kind of facial deformity is treatable in a reasonable period of time. Dr. Bell, a prime mover in oral and maxillofacial surgery, has collected contributions from first-class academicians and practitioners in the field for this lavishly illustrated volume. Key Features Intensely clinical flavor with 600 full color illustrations DVD containing surgical videos and case reports,cutting edge procedures and imaging.

Cone Beam Computed Tomography is an imaging technique in which x-rays diverge to form a cone. Cone Beam Computed Tomography: A Clinician’s Guide to 3D Imaging is a concise, highly illustrated manual on this increasingly important form of imaging in dentistry. Divided into twelve chapters, the book begins with a history of Cone Beam Computed Tomography, followed by chapters on the physics and apparatus of CBCT and the need for CBCT in dentistry. Further chapters cover the role of CBCT in specific sub-specialties of dentistry, and a glossary provides an explanation of CBCT terminology. The role of CBCT in prosthodontics, orthodontics and airway analysis, endodontics and caries diagnosis, oral and maxillofacial pathologies, periodontal disease and forensic odontology, is described in detail. This book also brings the reader up to date on possible future applications of CBCT in dentistry. Cone Beam Computed Tomography: A Clinician’s Guide to 3D Imaging includes 180 full colour images and illustrations, further enhancing this invaluable resource for dentists. Key Points Concise guide to 3D imaging in dentistry Includes a history and basics of CBCT, as well as the role of CBCT in various dentistry sub-specialties 189 full colour images and illustrations
