Already a well-established title in the dental field, this new edition of Mr Harty's work sees the inclusion of a new editor in the person of Dr T R Pitt Ford. Until Mr Harty's untimely death they worked together on producing this new edition. Not only has the text been completely revised and updated, but several new contributors have been recruited to give the book international appeal. As a tribute to a well respected author, the fourth edition has been retitled 'Harty's Endodontics in Clinical Practice'.
This textbook, which has been known as the 'Bible of Endodontics' for over 40 years, will, in its 6th edition, retain its recognition as 'The Bible'. With over 88 contributing authors from all over the world and 41 chapters, the new Ingle's Endodontics will be the first endodontic textbook specifically prepared for the world's endodontic specialists and graduate students in advanced endodontic programs world-wide. It will continue to be the standard against which all other endodontic texts will be measured. The main divisions of the book will be 'The Discipline of Endodontics,' 'Endodontic Pathobiology,' 'Endodontic Examination, Evaluation, Diagnosis & Treatment Planning,' 'Management of Endodontic Disease,' 'Surgical Procedures in Endodontics and' Related Endodontic Treatment.' For the most part the illustrations will be in color. The evidence based bibliography for each topic will be extensive. Controversies in endodontics will be explored. Diagnosis and management of pain and infections will be broadened. A new section dealing with maxillary sinusitis and endodontic disease, expanded by CT scans is featured. The newest endodontic armamentaria are covered in depth. With a roundup of the world's experts in all phases of the specialty, Ingle's Endodontics, 6th edition, promises to be the ultimate in endodontic textbooks. It will be essential for every endodontist's library.
The Principles of Endodontics, Second Edition integrates theory with practice to produce an ideal introduction to endodontics. Fully illustrated and written in a straightfoward style, this guide demystifies a core aspect of the clinical practice of dentistry.
This title has been authored by practitioners working primarily in the UK. This textbook of oral and maxillofacial surgery is directed at dentists in training and newly qualified practitioners. The book aims to provide the theoretical background to a range of common procedures to assist in the DEVELOPMENT OF SKILLS required in diagnosis, treatment planning, and active surgical and postoperative management. The book has been prepared by a variety of authors, all of whom have extensive experience in undergraduate and postgraduate education in oral and maxillofacial surgery and whose views represent those of UK mainstream dental schools. New edition of a highly successful ‘skills based’ textbook on oral and maxillofacial surgery, liberally illustrated in full colour Ideal subject coverage for those who are, or who will become, general dental practitioners, i.e. comprehensive coverage of diagnosis and oral surgery with a discussion of with maxillofacial surgery suitable for the early years of training Clear identification of conditions and procedures suitable for the general dental practitioner, and of those requiring referral Procedures clearly illustrated when routinely carried out in general practice Learning objectives, lists of assumed knowledge and summary boxes provided to make learning easier Ideal as a ‘dip in’ book for using in parallel with lectures and ‘small group’ learning, or in relation to specific patients seen Increased used of self-assessment material, particularly in the chapters on diagnosis and medically compromised patients Reshaped chapters on pathological conditions of the oral mucosa and bone, as well as the use of biopsy as an investigative tool New discussion about cleft lip and palate New section on osteonecrosis of the jaws, associated with bisphosphonate medication, and on infection with methicillinresistant Staphylococcus aureus
This book provides practitioners with a concise, practical overview of biological principles and practical techniques for handling endodontic failures. Because careful treatment planning is integral to success, case assessment and selection are emphasized.
