Handbook of Dental Care: Diagnostic, Preventive and Restorative Services PDF
by Jose C. Taggart (Author, Editor)

This book focuses on new research in dentistry practices. Dentistry is the known evaluation, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases, disorders and conditions of the oral cavity, maxillofacial area and the adjacent and associated structures and their impact on 
the human body. Dentistry is widely considered necessary for complete oral health. It usually encompasses a number of very important practices related to the oral cavity. The most common being dental surgery on the teeth as a treatment for dental cavities. Oral and maxillofacial surgery is also a common surgery to correct a wide spectrum of diseases, injuries and defects in the head, neck, face, jawsand the hard and soft tissues of the oral and maxillofacial region. Many oral diseases and abnormalities can indicate systemic, neural, or other diseases. Research on these and other issuesrelated to dental care are discussed in this new book.

Chapter 1 – Psychological science has new opportunities to have major input into the understanding of oral health behaviour. This article provides an overview of advances in understanding the personality characteristics thatpredispose the development of certain patterns of behaviour: type A behavior pattern, perceived stress, emotional intelligence, aggression, impulsivity, sensation seeking, instability of self-esteem, affective lability, social inhibition, mood, worry, positive and negative affect, social desirability, social intelligence, self-consciousness, anger, self-control, self-confidence, self-competence, self-liking, body investment, body appreciation, perfectionism, sense of hopelessness, worry, type C coping, resilience, hope, self-criticism, narcissism, achievement motives, satisfaction with life and happiness, hardiness, self-concept, self-regulation, proactive coping and attitude, social physique anxiety, shyness, sociability and social comparison. It suggests that it is now time to develop conceptual models that integrate our understanding of separate psychosocial predictors, to explain what oral health behaviour is initiated and how it is maintained or changed.


Chapter 3 – Dental caries has been a highly prevalent and costly disease in the world, representing the most common infectious disease in the paediatric population. Caries lesions are also increasingly isolated in specific teeth and tooth morphology types, and there is growing controversy about the most appropriaterestorative material for these lesions in 
deciduous teeth. In fact, restorative materials continuously improved in durability, strength, aesthetics, and anti-cariogenic properties. Moreover, the increasing demand for aesthetic restorative treatment has totally transformed the practice of paediatric dentistry in the last decade. Traditionally, the use of amalgam was a standard procedure in the restoration of carious primary teeth. Because of the introduction of adhesive restorative materials, the treatment of proximal caries has changed. The principal advantage of these new materials is that they require less retention form and this is particularly important in primary teeth to conserve the relatively thin enamel that could help prevent subsequent carious invasion of dentin
