Online, you can review the same questions plus an additional 420 case-based items related to Component B in 1) practice mode or 2) timed, exam-simulation mode with randomized tests that match the number and distribution of questions on the NBDHE. From a team of dental hygiene experts including lead editor Barbara Bennett, this Q&A resource is an excellent supplement to any NBDHE content review book! More than 1,680 multiple-choice questions provide comprehensive practice spanning the entire NBDHE, with 1,250+ items relating to Component A — more than six times the number of questions on the actual exam! — and 420 case-based questions related to Component B. Rationales accompany each question, fully explaining why each answer choice is either correct or incorrect and thus serving as secondary content review. Distribution of questions matches each category on the NBDHE test specifications, ensuring that you have adequate practice for each content area. An Evolve companion website includes all 1,250+ questions from the book plus additional case studies with color images and accompanying questions, available either in practice mode with instant feedback or in exam-simulation format with results and feedback provided at the end of the exam. A test creator and timer on Evolve generates NBDHE-style tests that mimic the number and distribution of questions on the NBDHE and also provides realistic practice with time management during the exam. 16 detailed case studies on Evolve, each of which includes a patient medical/dental history, completed periodontal chart, oral radiographs, clinical photographs, and 20-35 multiple-choice questions for patients in the five main categories covered on the NBDHE (adult periodontitis, pediatric, geriatric, special needs, and medically compromised).

ISBN: 0323087647

Category: Medical

Page: 256

View: 6583

This practical, highly illustrated book describes the treatment and management of commonly encountered traumatic injuries to the teeth. It relates these types of trauma to crown fractures, root fractures, luxation injuries, and exarticulations. A step-by-step reference, this book also discusses complications that may involve surrounding soft and hard tissues, plus those that may arise in managing medically compromised patients. Hundreds of full-color photographs and illustrations show concepts and depict case studies and treatment outcomes. Step-by-step descriptions of treatment plans offer "recipes" for treating patients according to type of injury. For each type of traumatic injury, you'll learn these key steps: How to perform a correct initial assessment of the problem. How to determine whether the patient suffers any related problems. How to record the injury and its subsequent treatment in the patient record. How to avoid future problems by ensuring that the entire tooth is treated — including any hidden injury to the pulp or dentin. Information on etiology and epidemiology of problems promotes more effective treatment of specific injuries and conditions. The Law and Dental Trauma chapter explains legal issues unique to treating dental injuries under emergency conditions. Psychological Impact of Injuries chapter describes the reactions that trauma patients may have, and how dentists can improve treatment by providing the patient with emotional support and holistic management. Chapters on hard tissue injuries focus on injuries to tooth/hard tissue anatomy — and one chapter examines soft tissue management — discussing types of trauma and their effects on surrounding oral tissues. Introductory chapter provides an overview of topics discussed in the book. Hundreds of references are listed alphabetically at the end of each chapter with research studies and current articles for further research. An interdisciplinary approach includes periodontal, endodontic, and pediatric considerations for specific types of injuries.
