Expand your skills in the rapidly growing field of laser dentistry! Principles and Practice of Laser Dentistry uses a concise, evidence-based approach in describing protocols and procedures. Dr. Robert A. Convissar, a renowned lecturer on this subject, has assembled a diverse panel of international contributors; he's also one of the first general dentists to use lasers in his practice. The book covers the history of lasers in dentistry and laser research, plus the use of lasers in periodontics, periodontal surgery, oral pathology, implantology, fixed and removable prosthetics, cosmetic procedures, endodontics, operative dentistry, pediatrics, orthodontics, and oral and maxillofacial surgery. Full-color images show the latest laser technology, surgical techniques, and key steps in patient treatment.

From 1914 to 1966 the retail cosmetic sales within the U.S.A. went from almost $40 million to well over $3 billion. Part of the reason for this upsurge can be attributed to the increased interest shown by men in cosmetic products such as various shaving creams, colognes, hair tonics and conditioners. Because of the importance of this field of chemical science, it seemed pertinent to produce a chemical formulary specializing in cosmetic preparations of all types. The formulas and data in this book have all been contributed within the past twelve months by the companies listed on page iv They are printed as contributed and thus there are variations in manner of presentation. The formulas included here are of an experimental nature and are intended to be used as starting points for the industrial chemist, and for those who wish to experiment in their own right. Many of the formulas can serve as successful products without any alterations required. However, once the chemist has familiarized himself with the formulas as they stand, the adventure of individual experimentation begins. All data is based on U.S. Specification and practice, but readers in other countries should not find it difficult to adapt the formulas for their own use.
