Overview

One of the most successful textbooks in pediatric dentistry, this expert resource provides superior, comprehensive coverage of oral care for infants, children, teenagers, and medically compromised individuals. Thoroughly revised material offers the most up-to-date diagnostic and treatment recommendations based on current research, literature, and clinical experience. Now in its 8th edition, this classic text continues to offer in-depth coverage of all areas relevant to the contemporary science and practice of pediatric dentistry.

• Discussions of theories related to molecular biology of the eruption of teeth explain problems related to dental eruption and insight into future methods for their resolution.
• Incorporates the American Cleft Palate - Craniofacial Association guidelines for the most recent advances in treatment of cleft lip and palate.
• Follows academy-approved guidelines for the use of anesthetics in the treatment of the child patient as well as outpatient vs. in-patient procedures.
• Provides an overview of practice management including patient scheduling, insurance, and third party plans.
• Includes dentists' guide for documenting and reporting child abuse and neglect.
• Provides valuable information on cavity varnish, mercury toxicity, and glass ionomer cements.
• Provides indications for the use of implants to replace teeth (congenitally missing or lost as a result of trauma) in pediatric patients.

• An updated chapter on nutrition and health shows how food choices and patterns of eating initiated in childhood affect oral health and overall well-being at every stage of life.
• An increased emphasis on the genetic influence of root resorption associated with orthodontic treatment explores this hot topic.
• Coverage of new restorative materials examines their use in everyday clinical restorative practice.
• New coverage of tooth whitening for children and its indications responds to the growing popularity of cosmetic tooth whitening for people of all ages.
• An updated radiography chapter provides thorough information on digital radiography in children's dentistry.
• Increased emphasis on Early Childhood Caries and the Alternative Restorative Technique (ART) - a technique used to restore defective or carious teeth with minimal cavity preparation followed by placement of a fluoride-releasing material - reflects the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry's position on ART.
• The chapter on anxiety control and pain/analgesics includes specific dosage recommendations for managing anxious or fearful patients.
• The updated pharmacologic management chapter includes the latest information on sedation techniques in children.
• The updated trauma chapter includes new splinting recommendations for root fractures and the new Titanium Trauma Splint, cross-referenced to the International Association of Dental Traumatology Diagnostic and Treatment Guidelines, and categories for treatment of avulsed teeth.
• A new section on the dental management of patients with sickle cell anemia offers the most current information for treating children with disabilities as well as medically compromised patients.
• Revised illustrations help readers see techniques in a modern dental office setting.

Editorial Reviews

Christopher J. Morin
The current concepts of dentistry for the child and adolescent using the most up to date diagnostic and treatment recommendations are addressed in this book. The previous edition was published in 1994. The purpose is to provide a comprehensive source of information about oral healthcare for infants, children, teenagers, and individuals with special needs. Placing considerable emphasis on preventive procedures is certainly a worthy objective, and the editors succeed in this area. The book is written for dental students, pediatric dental residents, and practicing pediatric dentists. General dentists may also find it to be a useful reference. The editors and contributors are well known for the six previous editions of this textbook. Every aspect of pediatric dentistry is examined in this book, including behavior management, growth and development, nutrition, trauma, and management of the medically compromised patient. Completeness is the strong point. With over 800 pages and hundreds of photographs, every topic relevant to pediatric dentistry is examined in depth. This book is the standard against which other pediatric dental textbooks should be measured. The book is current, complete, and "user friendly." Considering how rapidly pediatric dentistry is changing, this updated edition is not only welcome, it is necessary.
Kevin L. Boyd
The sixth edition of this book serves as a comprehensive guide to the scientific basis of dental care for the pediatric patient as well as a practical reference for diagnoses and treatment modalities currently used in pediatric dentistry. The authors' stated objectives were (1) to provide undergraduate and postgraduate dental students with knowledge sufficient for providing ""efficient and superior comprehensive oral health care"" for patients served by pediatric specialists and (2) to serve as a current reference for experienced clinicians. The intended audience is students in pediatric dentistry at both the undergraduate and postgraduate level as well as experienced clinicians. There are several illustrations and charts that are helpful in understanding important issues described in the text. Lack of any color in the photographs and illustrations decreases the overall visual effectiveness of the book. This is a good fundamental textbook for students in pediatric dentistry. Because of the authors' high visibility and profile, previous editions have been deemed ""classic"" texts and are thus used in many schools. The users of this book would be better served if it were revised more frequently than every five or so years. Also, the book is a little too ""inbred"" with coauthors from Indiana University. The chapters on practice management, HIV, interceptive orthodontics, trauma, and behavior management care are very good but would benefit from expanison by authors from other institutions.
