This innovative text follows a number of clinical cases in great detail, to present the problems they raise and the rationale for the solution adopted. Expert editorial commentary then discusses alternative possible solutions. There is a special section on implant therapy. Great emphasis is placed in particular on the periodontal aspects of the problems raised, but dentists specializing in orthodontics or endodontics will also find much here to shed light on their own specialty.

Maxillofacial defects may be congenital or acquired and may be caused by surgical interventions for neoplasms. Because of the localizations of these defects, aesthetic problems may occur so it becomes impossible for the patients to continue their daily lives. Losing a part of the face or having a congenital defect may play a negative effect on the social life and psychology of the patient. It also affects the function adversely. Maxillofacial prostheses' aim is to maintain the health of the hard and soft tissues and to improve the aesthetics of patients. But completing the process is tiring both for the patient and the prosthodontist. There is a large and rapidly growing literature on maxillofacial prosthodontics in clinical practice. In this book, brief descriptions of recent developments in the maxillofacial practice are discussed. References are provided at the end of each chapter and listed alphabetically. For clinicians, this book provides a broad perspective on prosthodontics, their possible applications and interactions between special clinics, and suggestions about future research topics, which will be helpful to their research. Regardless of your background, whether you're a prosthodontist or a plastic surgeon, you will find the book appropriate to your needs. In this book, there are basic principles of maxillofacial prostheses and coloring, and information on patients' 'perspectives on the prosthetic treatment'. Also discussed is the importance of the prosthodontist-patient relationship. This book will be a guide for the prosthodontist and their approach to the patients

New nanomaterials are leading to a range of emerging dental treatments that utilize more biomimetic materials that more closely duplicate natural tooth structure (or bone, in the case of implants). This book brings together an international team of experts from the fields of materials science, nanotechnology and dentistry, to explain these new materials and their applications for the restoration, fixation, replacement, or regeneration of hard and soft tissues in and about the oral cavity and craniofacial region. The main topics covered include applications in dental specialties (Orthodontics, Endodontics, Pediatric dentistry, Periodontics, Prosthodontics and Implant dentistry), salivary diagnostics using bioMEMS/NEMS systems, nanochips for oral cancer diagnosis, biomimetic nanomaterials, and nanotechnology for tooth repair and regeneration. The editors' previous book, Emerging Nanotechnologies in Dentistry focused on the fabrication/manufacturing processes of materials and dentistry applications. This second book complements the first covers with coverage of the range of nanomaterials available today in clinical dentistry, explaining the innovative techniques and applications in all of the main clinical dental specialties. Nanobiomaterial engineers, biomedical researchers, biomedical engineers and dental/oral pre-clinical and clinical researchers will find the comprehensive coverage essential for working with nanotechnologies and materials in both clinical and research settings. Book prepared by an interdisciplinary and international group of scientists and practitioners in the fields of nanomaterials, dental implants, medical devices and clinical practice Comprehensive professional reference for the subject covering materials fabrication and use of materials for all major diagnostic and therapeutic dental applications - repair, restoration, regeneration, implants and prevention Complements the editors' previous book on nanotechnology applications for dentistry
