This book was written by the creator of the popular Dental Expert and Pediatric Dental Expert app for the iPhone and iPad, Dr. Marc Lazare, who has gathered information from the top dental experts in their fields to answer the most frequently asked dental questions in all categories of dental care. The Patients Guide to Dentistry is the ultimate guide to everything you would like to know, and everything you should know. There are many questions people have about dental care. There are terms that they have heard mentioned but aren't quite sure what they are. They have heard about advances in dental technology and various treatments but don't know who to ask about them. Their dentist is often too busy to present all the different choices one has, and doesn't have the time to explain in detail what needs to be done. People have a fear of the unknown and a fear of dentistry is common. We all are concerned with doing what is best for us and our family while trying to keep costs down. There are many aspects of basic dental care we do not understand. The idea of when to see a dentist and if I go will I have pain are just some of the universal concerns. Here, in one book, are the answers we need.
A bright, whimsical book for children and parents to encourage them to care for their teeth. Using delightful images of baby and adult animals "doing things” with their healthy teeth, this rhyming picture book offers children and parents the basics of good dental hygiene. It stresses the need for a regular teeth-cleaning routine, promotes flossing, and suggests an approved method of brushing. It also points to nutritional problems that can lead to cavities and gum disease. Unhealthy diets and snacks loaded with sugars have always been the greatest offenders in promoting tooth decay. Now, we learn that giving children fruit juice in their bottles at night or allowing them to fall asleep with formula in their mouths is a serious threat to teeth and gums. This book informs readers of these important points. This book takes a proactive approach to dental care, making it fun, involving parents, advocating frequent dental visits and the use of a fresh, effective toothbrush. While dental health for children has always been an important health priority, now more than ever this issue needs to be addressed as the growing stress of our lives leads many parents to neglect this routine for themselves and their children, and the fast-food diet which is quickly becoming the norm, does little to encourage the strength and health of teeth and gums. Ongoing research about the health of adult teeth is more convincing than ever that strong teeth, which last a lifetime, are a result of good oral hygiene from infancy on. Kalindi Press is happy to join in the campaign for parent education and child motivation in good dental care.

This new book focuses on dental implants used in conjunction with other prosthetic devices in the general dentist's office, designed to help the partially or completely edentulous patient recover normal function, esthetics, comfort, and speech. Step-by-step procedures guide practitioners through challenging clinical situations and assist them in refining their technique. The information in this practical, highly illustrated book reflects the latest in continued research, diagnostic tools, treatment planning, implant designs, materials, and techniques. Prosthetic devices covered in this include complete dentures, bridges, overdentures, and various dental implant systems. A comprehensive chapter covering immediate load implants teaches dentists how to provide an edentulous patient with implants the same day surgery is performed. A thorough discussion of preimplant prosthodontic considerations takes the practitioner through the vital assessment steps necessary to plan treatment. Considerations for assessing the restorability of teeth adjacent to potential implant sites include abutment size, crown-root ratio, endodontic status, root configuration, tooth position, parallelism, root surface area, caries, and periodontal status. Fixed treatment planning options for the completely edentulous mandibular arches expands treatment options available to dentists, helping them to treat more patients. Material thoroughly explores the three dimensional concept of available bone and the implant treatment options for each type of bone anatomy, which enables practitioners to treat patients at any stage of edentulism. Comparisons of the periodontal indices for a natural tooth and an osteointegrated implant alert clinicians to fundamental differences in the support system. Basic biomechanics are discussed, demonstrating how these principles also relate to the scientific rationale for contemporary and future dental implant designs. A comprehensive discussion of bone density in an edentulous site explains this determining factor in treatment planning, implant design, surgical approach, healing time, and initial progressive bone loading during prosthetic reconstruction.
