e-Health Care in Dentistry and Oral Medicine: A Clinician’s Guide 1st ed. 2018 Edition

This clinically oriented book presents the state of the art in e-health care within dentistry and oral medicine (“e-oral health”) with the aim of acquainting dentists and other oral health care professionals with its uses and advantages, especially with regard to diagnosis. It will assist all who wish to learn about teledentistry protocols and the e-oral health branch or to implement e-oral health solutions and procedures in clinical practice. The book opens by discussing general aspects of e-oral health, including tools, networks, and the very important ethical considerations. The use and specific benefits of e-oral health technologies in the diagnosis of different conditions, orthodontic assessment, implantology evaluation, and caries prevention are then fully explained. Finally, examples are provided of the ways in which teledentistry functions in different countries on different continents. e-Oral health is a burgeoning field that encompasses teledentistry as well as other uses of information and communication technologies for oral health care purposes. This book will be an ideal guide for not only dentists but also dental hygienists, dental nurses, and other professionals.


Lasers in Dentistry―Current Concepts (Textbooks in Contemporary Dentistry) 1st ed

This book provides information on the basic science and tissue interactions of dental lasers and documents the principal current clinical uses of lasers in every dental discipline. The applications of lasers in restorative dentistry, endodontics, dental implantology, pediatric dentistry, periodontal therapy, and soft tissue surgery are clearly described and illustrated. Information is also provided on laser-assisted multi-tissue management, covering procedures such as crown lengthening, gingival troughing, gingival recontouring, and depigmentation. The closing chapters look forward to the future of lasers in dentistry and the scope for their widespread use in everyday clinical practice.
When used in addition to or instead of conventional instrumentation, lasers offer many unique patient benefits. Furthermore, research studies continue to reveal further potential clinical applications, and new laser wavelengths are being explored, developed, and delivered with highly specific power configurations to optimize laser–tissue interaction. This book will bring the reader up to date with the latest advances and will appeal to all with an interest in the application of lasers to the oral soft and/or hard tissues.

Noncarious Cervical Lesions and Cervical Dentin Hypersensitivity: Etiology, Diagnosis, and Treatment 1st Edition

[amazon template=iframe image2&asin=0867157143]

Cervical dentin hypersensitivity (CDH) and noncarious cervical lesions (NCCLs) are common findings in modern clinical practice. Although research has shown that NCCLs are a multifactorial condition involving the three mechanisms of stress, biocorrosion, and friction, few dentists know how to treat them effectively. Similarly, CDH has been an enigma for many years, and research has focused on etiology instead of treatment. In addition, little attention has been given to their mutual etiologic mechanisms of cervical stress concentration from occlusal loading and endogenous/exogenous biocorrosion. Therefore, this book approaches CDH and NCCLs together and outlines the history, mechanisms, and, most important, the clinical methods of treatment for these pathologies. It is about time we as dentists learn how to treat and prevent these conditions in clinical practice. This involves greater diagnostic effort and alteration of treatment protocols to (1) reduce dietary intake/exposure to acids, (2) manage reflux diseases, and (3) consider the significance of occlusal therapies. After reading this book, the student or clinician will be able to diagnose and treat clinical cases of NCCLs and CDH.

Oral Bioavailability Assessment: Basics and Strategies for Drug Discovery and Development (Wiley Series on Pharmaceutical Science and Biotechnology: Practices, Applications and Methods) 1st Edition

[amazon template=iframe image2&asin=1118916697]

Poor oral bioavailability is one of the leading causes of compound attrition and failure in preclinical and clinical development. In pharmacokinetics, oral bioavailability describes the fraction of an administered dose of a drug that reaches the systemic circulation following oral dosing. It is one of the essential parameters, as bioavailability must be considered when calculating oral doses needed to increase probability of testing the biological mechanism in humans. Since drug developability has become an important criterion to measure the success of scientists working in drug companies, understanding and testing a drug candidate’s oral bioavailability is a critical step in the development process.

Specifically geared to personnel in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, Oral Bioavailability Assessment: Basics and Strategies for Drug Discovery and Development describes the basics and challenges of oral bioavailability – one of the most significant hurdles in drug discovery and development. The book emphasizes the impact of drug transporters on drug absorption and practices for addressing bioavailability problems. The author includes tutorials for applying these strategies to medicinal chemistry for hit selection, lead optimization, and development candidate selection.

Writing from extensive experience in drug discovery and development, giving short courses on the topic, the author presents the material in an accessible and practical manner that:

  • Helps readers reduce the failure rate of drug candidates when transitioning from the bench to the clinic during development
  • Explains how preclinical animal models – used in preclinical testing – and in vitro tools translate to humans, which is underappreciated and complicated area of drug development
  • Includes chapters about pharmacokinetic modelling, the Biopharmaceutics Drug Disposition Classification System (BDDCS), and the Extended Clearance Classification System (ECCS)
  • Has tutorials for applying strategies to medicinal chemistry practices of drug discovery/development
