This new edition reflects the remarkable clinical and scientific advances in bone and soft tissue reconstruction since publication of the first edition of this award-winning book 7 years ago. Highly potent recombinant growth factors are now widely available, and numerous chapters describe and provide cases illustrating how to incorporate these protein therapeutics into clinical practice. The reader will find information about the basic principles of tissue engineering, use of growth factors in orthopedics, and potential applications of gene therapy in dentistry. The book also features chapters on periodontal regeneration and localized implant site development. A section on applications for craniofacial reconstruction describes procedures for use of growth factors in the treatment of defects. The final section addresses orthopedic indications for tissue engineering. An invaluable, up-to-date resource for practitioners wanting to integrate tissue engineering into their clinical practice, researchers seeking inspiration for new directions, and those new to this fascinating field.

Stem Cells in Clinical Practice and Tissue Engineering is a concise book on applied methods of stem cell differentiation and optimization using tissue engineering methods. These methods offer immediate use in clinical regenerative medicine. The present volume will serve the purpose of applied stem cell differentiation optimization methods in clinical research projects, as well as be useful to relatively experienced stem cell scientists and clinicians who might wish to develop their stem cell clinical centers or research labs further. Chapters are arranged in the order of basic concepts of stem cell differentiation, clinical applications of pluripotent stem cells in skin, cardiac, bone, dental, obesity centers, followed by tissue engineering, new materials used, and overall evaluation with their permitted legal status.

Periodontology is the study of the supporting structures of teeth (gums, bones and cement-like substance that hold the teeth, and the periodontal ligament); and the diagnosis and treatment of diseases and conditions that affect them. This textbook is a complete guide to periodontology for dental students. Divided into twelve sections, the book begins with explanations of normal periodontium, classification and epidemiology, aetiology, and pathology of gingival and periodontal diseases. The following sections cover diagnosis and both surgical and non-surgical treatment methods. A complete chapter is dedicated to implantology and the interdisciplinary link between periodontics and other subspecialties is explained in detail. Each topic is enhanced by colour-coded boxes highlighting key points, viva voce questions, and suggested further reading as well as high quality clinical photographs, diagrams and tables.
