This practical resource addresses a range of clinical problems in orthodontics and pediatric dentistry and provides a step-by-step guide to differential diagnosis and treatment planning. Emphasizing clinical-problem solving, it helps readers combine different dental procedures into a rational plan of treatment for patients who may have a number of different dental problems that require attention.
Clinical paediatric dentistry is a demanding subject. This book by Professor Monty Duggal and colleagues concentrates on a very important issue in the clinical treatment of children—the rational restoration of carious primary teeth. Despite effective preventive programmes, which have resulted in a tremendous improvement in the oral health of children and adolescents, in any population there will always be a group of children with a high caries activity resulting in extensive carious lesions.
A revised and updated edition of this successful text offers new material on plastic restorations.
With increasing emphasis on restoration, as opposed to extraction, and growing public awareness of the importance of primary teeth, the first edition was one of the first books to illustrate in detail the various scientifically proven clinical techniques.
The authors are at the Leeds Dental Institute.
The clinical interface of orthodontics and paediatric dentistry is
broad. Increasingly, for the undergraduate, teaching and
examinations in these specialties are combined to promote a
holistic approach to dental care for the child and adolescent patient.
This concise colour guide aims, therefore, to cover major clinical
aspects of orthodontic and paediatric dental practice in a format
suitable for quick reference and revision purposes.
Most students need a textbook that will provide all the
basic facts within a discipline and that also facilitates
understanding of the subject. This textbook achieves
these objectives and also provides test questions for the
student to explore their level of knowledge. It is also
important for students to achieve a 'feel for the subject'
and learn communication skills.
The book is designed to provide basic information
necessary to pass an undergraduate examination in
restorative, paediatric and orthodontic dentistry.
Suitable for students and practitioners alike, HANDBOOK OF PEDIATRIC DENTISTRY - is a concise, practical and highly illustrated guide to the day-to-day management of child dental patients.
Edited by two of Australia's most eminent clinicians and academics with established global reputations.
Endorsed by the Australasian Academy of Paediatric Dentistry.
Written in an accessible, easy-to-read manner to aid retention of facts.
Provides a source of essential and practical information, not always easy to find elsewhere.
Where is the professional and public outrage at the troubling trends in
the marketing and selling of ‘‘cosmetic’’ dentistry that besiege our profession
The code of primum non noceredfirst and foremost do no harmdseems
to have been cast aside in the headlong pursuit of outrageous overtreatment
for financial gain by some. Fortunately, this trend is manifest by a small,
although unfortunately highly visible, minority in the profession.
I was very pleased when my younger colleagues and Monty Duggal accepted my
offer to join me in editing this third edition. Our book has now sold four and a half
thousand copies since its launch in 1997 and it is essential that we maintain a
contemporary outlook and publish changes in techniques and philosophies as soon as
they have an evidence base.
Since 2001 and the second edition, there have been a significant number of changes of
authorship, as well as a change of chapters for some existing authors.

The pioneering work of Bra˚ nemark ushered in a new era in dentistryd
the era of implant dentistry. Bra˚ nemark and his colleagues created a new
field of study from a serendipitous research observation, thus exemplifying
Pasteur’s dictum that ‘‘chance favors the prepared mind.’’ Through further
research, these investigators transformed the field of implantology from an
unpredictable art to a well-grounded clinical science. This research provided
the scientific basis for a set of strict clinical protocols.
