Amelogenesis imperfecta is a genetic condition affecting the teeth resulting in aberrations of the structure and clinical appearance of enamel. The treatment of amelogenesis imperfecta involves a multidisciplinary treatment approach requiring a comprehensive examination, diagnosis, and effective treatment planning strategy along with satisfaction of patient-related factors. The clinical case described here involves judicious involvement of different disciplines to formulate a treatment plan best suitable to confirm with the patient's needs and expectations, at the same time maintaining the integrity and harmony of associated hard and soft tissues.
General dentists are increasingly performing both stages (placement and restoration) of dental implant therapy. The fifth edition of this Guide discusses factors to consider during treatment planning, surgery and post-operative care of implants. The Guide also presents a thorough discussion of the contraindications for dental implant therapy, as well as the complications that can occur during and after treatment. A series of diagrams and photos allows the clinician to visualize various aspects of implant placement.
The overwhelming majority of patients with periodontitis are treated in the offices of general practitioners and the most common services rendered are non-surgical in nature. This Guide addresses the subject of non-surgical therapy from the perspective of evidence-based dentistry to include a discussion of the etiology of periodontitis and the need for therapy as the basis for a rationale for treatment. The assessment of non-surgical treatment outcomes with a view to decisions regarding further treatment is a prominent feature of the Guide. The discussion of non-surgical approaches goes beyond mechanical debridement to include subgingival irrigation, systemic antibiotics and locally delivered antibiotics. Treatment planning decisions and the maintenance phase of therapy are also discussed. This edition includes updates from research published over the past three years, providing valuable guidance to the clinician providing periodontal care.
Adolescence is the time between childhood and adulthood. It includes significant changes in growth, and critical developmental experiences include physical and sexual maturation, social and economic independence, development of identity, acquisition of skills needed to carry out adult relationships and roles, and the capacity for abstract reasoning. The adolescent patient has different oral health needs than a younger, prepubertal child or many adults. Using an evidence-based approach, this Quality Resource Guide (QRG) reviews the distinctive oral health care needs and oral health risk factors specific to adolescents. It outlines oral health care recommendations for the adolescent patient and discussesvdental treatment planning considerations. This QRG will serve as an essential resource for the dentist and all office staff members, as they assess and provide therapy for adolescents within the practice.
