Oral Rehabilitation for Compromised and Elderly Patients

Author: Alexandre Mersel

Publisher: Springer

ISBN: 3319761293

Category: Medical

Page: 196

View: 6836

This book is designed to help dentists in general practice to improve the results of prosthetic procedures in medically compromised and elderly patients. In particular, it critically scrutinizes various dogmas that govern practitioners’ approaches yet lack sound scientific support and often have an adverse effect on outcomes. Attention is drawn to straightforward procedures that offer significant clinical benefits and to aspects that are too often neglected, such as the impact of systemic diseases. New light is cast, for example, on the taking of dental impressions, the treatment of malocclusions, the making of jaw relation records, the relationship between denture quality and patient satisfaction, and the use of implant-supported overdentures versus traditional complete prostheses (dentures). As Albert Einstein once said, "It is what we think we know that prevents us from learning more." Readers will find that this book helps them to re-examine taken-for-granted elements of their practice, leading to improved care and patient satisfaction.

View: 907

With cases reflecting the classic presentation format of each disease process, this book prepares students for patient encounters during their oral and maxillofacial surgery rotations. It also helps residents learn and review "high yield" material that is commonly found in oral and maxillofacial training and on board examinations. It highlights clinical information that is commonly asked during rounds, in the operating room, and during examinations. For each case, it includes an overview of the most common clinical presentation, physical exam findings, diagnostic tools, complications, treatment, and a discussion of any controversial issues that may surround the case. The authors describe Clinical Review of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery as "A little reach for the dental student, right on target for the OMS resident, and a strong refresher for OMS board certification." This title includes additional digital media when purchased in print format. For this digital book edition, media content is not included. Case-based format prepares students and residents to pass the OMSSAT, with the Table of Contents corresponding to the exam's categories and questions. 95 clinical cases focus on essential information regarding each disease process. Detailed illustrations -- including radiographs and clinical photographs or drawings -- provide a visual guide to conditions, techniques, diagnoses, and key concepts. Contributing authors include recent graduates or senior residents in oral and maxillofacial surgery, so they are fully cognizant of students' and residents' needs as they prepare for cases, exams, and surgical procedures. Complements other Elsevier books such as Peterson: Contemporary Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Fonseca: Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, and Ward Booth: Maxillofacial Surgery.

Integrated Dental Treatment Planning

A Case-based Approach

Author: Ann C. Shearer

Publisher: Oxford University Press, USA

ISBN: N.A

Category: Medical

Page: 159

View: 3057

Dentistry is not only about understanding the causes of oral disease and having the technical expertise to treat them. Patients frequently challenge practitioners with ethical dilemmas, psychological and social problems, health and welfare difficulties, and personal demands. This book covers the case histories of six individuals and the dental problems they encounter through their lives. Each case is loosely based on a real individual to allow the senior dentistry student to develop an understanding of the many issues they may face in daily clinical practice. Although all the patients featured in the book have problems related to oral and dental diseases, their successful long-term management requires both a profound awareness of modern treatment options and a broad knowledge of law applied to dentistry, the ethics of dental care, plus the psychology and sociology of disease and health related behaviour. Each chapter describes a hypothetical patient and how he or she presented, or might present, to a general dental practitioner. The various treatment options which could be chosen by the patient's practitioner are included and the advantages and disadvantages of the various treatment plans are described. The medium and long-term outcomes for that patient, in terms of their oral well-being, are then covered so that the reader can appreciate how even seemingly inconsequential treatment decisions can impact on a person many years after their encounter with the dentist. This longitudinal approach will help the reader to view dealing with patients' problems as a lifetime's work rather than as a set of "one-off" interventions.
