CELL-TO-CELL COMMUNICATION: ORAL HEALTH AND GENERAL HEALTH NEW

Edited by: S. Jepsen, M. Sanz, B. Stadlinger, H. Terheyden

The Links Between Periodontitis, Atherosclerosis, and Diabetes

Can periodontitis or other inflammatory processes of the oral cavity contribute to systemic conditions such as atherosclerosis or diabetes, or negatively influence their course?

This 3D animation Oral Health and General Health - addresses these issues by visualizing the highly complex intercellular interactions and signaling pathways. Periodontal pathogens are invasive and can spread throughout the body via the bloodstream. Locally produced pro-inflammatory mediators can also shed into the circulation. This new film features an interdisciplinary topic, and in this context, special attention is given to diseases such as atherosclerosis and type 2 diabetes.

~ Dissemination of bacteria in periodontitis
~ Impact of periodontitis on the cardiovascular system: Atherosclerosis
~ Effect of periodontitis on glucose metabolism: Type 2 diabetes
~ Dental treatment

CELL-TO-CELL COMMUNICATION: PERIODONTAL REGENERATION NEW

Edited by: Bernd Stadlinger, Henfrik Terheyden

Unlike bone, which undergoes remodeling by resorption followed by bone apposition, teeth are not subject to physiological remodeling. They are remarkably resistant to physiological remodeling processes. The reason for this is found in the periodontium and cementum. The mechanisms that take effect in this area and the effectiveness of the periodontal system - consisting of gingiva, alveolar bone, periodontium and cementum - after injuries will be visualized in the new scientific 3D film, "Periodontal Regeneration".The visualization of these complex processes is of great interest for academic teaching as well as for the clinician and general practitioner as the cellular interactions are presented in the context of four phases. For the first time scanning electron microscopic images of real cells will be visualized allowing the comparison of their characteristics with computer animated simulations.

FRACTURED INSTRUMENT REMOVAL: A SYSTEMATIC APPROACH

Edited by: Michael Arnold

Instrument breakage is a possible complication of mechanical preparation and widening of complex root canal systems. The more difficult the endodontic treatment, the greater the risk of instrument fracture. Recent studies show that more than 90% of all broken endodontic instruments can be successfully removed without surgical intervention. However, before undertaking a removal attempt, clinicians must know how to determine when a broken instrument should be removed and when it should be left in place; the appropriate methods for broken instrument removal; and which instruments should be used for each level of difficulty. This DVD provides a simple, step-by-step strategy to instrument removal that is illustrated by numerous images and clinical case demonstrations. This systematic approach can help significantly improve the odds of successfully removing broken endodontic instruments from the root canal. The accompanying booklet includes insightful articles on minimally invasive fragment removal using CBCT as well as a systematic approach to orthograde removal of fractured instruments.

~ Complex Case with Long, Tapered NiTi Fragments in the Mandibular Molars (57:35 min)
~ Fragment Removal from Maxillary First Molar with Vertucci Type VI Canal Configuration (33:33 min)
~ Fragment Removal from Maxillary First Molar with Rare and Difficult Root Morphology (50:26 min)

NATURAL WAXING-UP TECHNIQUE

Edited by: Dieter Schulz

The "occlusal compass" helps its target audience to make statements on and predict natural movements of the mandible (lower jaw) on the horizontal plane. The compass enables its users to obtain an idea of the directional movements (eg, protrusion, laterotrusion, mediotrusion) and to define these movements.

The NAT (natural waxing-up technique) is considered to be one of the most appropriate methods of implementing the occlusal compass, which facilitates the modeling of anatomically correct and functional models of occlusal surfaces of molars.

This DVD includes a presentation of the occlusal compass, the applicable anatomy, nomenclature and "dental coordinate system", the waxing-up of all segments of an upper molar and an entire quadrant following NAT. A step-by-step demonstration is given on how to locate contact points, also showing where spaces must be maintained.

CELL-TO CELL COMMUNICATION: INFLAMMATORY REACTIONS

Edited by: Bern Stadlinger, Hendrik Terheyden

This spectacularly sophisticated computer animation in HD quality depicts the highly complex processes of intercellular interaction during an inflammatory periodontal reaction complete with the messenger molecules implicated. The various cell types constitute the main cast of the film, using a finely tuned communication process in their quest to destroy the bacterial invaders, with messenger molecules as supporting cast. The accompanying hardcover booklet includes the original film script and a quiz on the topics discussed in the film. A stunning didactic and dramatic experience! This new extended edition includes a chairside version for patient education. This film is the second in a series of 3D animations that will make up the "Education¡XScience Comes Alive" 3D film library. Each film will explore a relevant biomedical process in dentistry and oral/maxillofacial surgery.

DENTAL EROSION: CLINICAL AND TECHNICAL ASPECTS OF MINIMALLY INVASIVE REHABILITATION

Bh Tomislav Kresic, Wolfgang Kohlbach, and Udo Plaster

Acid reflux¡Vrelated dental erosion is a topic of increasing relevance. This DVD-ROM presents an exceptional case report documenting a minimally invasive treatment for a severely eroded dentition owing to acid reflux disease. The film highlights the collaboration among a dentist and two dental technicians as they work together to find a treatment strategy to restore the patient's lost vertical dimension and ensure both excellent function and esthetics. The film highlights the use of novel methods and materials, including the "silicone-in-silicone" method in which mock-ups, a therapeutic splint, and temporary overlays are created from the same multiple-use polymerization mold. The exceptional restorative results validate the innovative techniques.

CELL-TO-CELL COMMUNICATION: OSSEOINTEGRATION

Edited by: B. Stadlinger, H. Terheyden

The first module in the new 3D animation series "Lively Science" dramatises the individual roles performed by each of the finely tuned cells, mediators, and transmitters involved in the complex biodynamic cascade of events known as osseointegration.

Bringing science to life by making the invisible visible, the film chronicles the four phases triggered in succession when a titanium implant is inserted where a tooth has been lost: hemostasis; the inflammation phase; the proliferative phase; and the remodeling phase. Students, researchers, and clinicians of all disciplines will find this film at once instructive, insightful, and fascinating.
